1. How would you describe your style?
I'd describe myself as a mix of mid-century modern, color-coated magic, and comfortable. Making sure my home is aesthetically pleasing is important, but comfort is key!
2. What inspired you to start the #HappyHouseDreams hashtag?
I've always had a love of house exteriors. Even when I was a child, I would drive around neighborhoods with my family to admire houses. So, it was natural for me to always search for homes every time I traveled. I began to showcase my finds on my Instagram—and naturally gravitated towards colorful "happy" houses. And it's a dream of mine to have a colorful home, so the phrase "Happyhousedreams" came natural to me!
My first post was actually a pink house I found while I was visiting my now-fiancé in law school. We were sitting at breakfast and the rest is history! From there, I've found homes in almost every color—including a rainbow ombre one!
3. What does color mean to you? Tell us why you incorporate so much bright color into your home (and life!)
Color is extremely important to me—both through my interior design projects and my creative content. It's a way to express myself and promote my moods. If I'm feeling super girly, I put on a pink jumpsuit and some platforms—paired with my daisy sunnies—and I'm ready to take on the world. If I'm feeling energetic, I'll put on a vintage rainbow romper and jumpstart my day.
And in my house, color is what inspires me (and all my guests!). I find myself most inspired when I am in a creative atmosphere, so I aimed to create that colorful vibe with my home. I created that through light fixtures, artwork, bedding, and statement furniture pieces.
