Overall Home Style Inspiration and Mood Board

If you’re a regular around here, you know that we moved from our South Carolina brick ranch into a quaint gray home in the hills of East Tennessee in December. I was determined to figure out what our new home’s style was and work with the natural light and our current furniture to come up with a cohesive vibe that flowed throughout each room.

I went to my Instagram feed and started saving all of the posts that stuck out to me, and four accounts kept going into the “save pile”. These are must-follow account for any home design/décor lover!

Once I went back through and surveyed my saved Instagram posts and Pinterest boards a little closer, it clicked! I finally pieced together the elements of style that I love most and came up with my own style…

White Walls

Dark Trim or Doors

Lots of Plants

Lots of Texture

Warm, Eclectic Accents

Coziness Aplenty!

I’ve been working non-stop during naptime and after bedtime to instill these style elements into our new home. My husband and I painted most walls on the main floor upstairs Polar Bear by Behr to bring in lots of fresh light. The downstairs living space got a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams’ Greek Villa since our new sectional is more off white and the carpet and fireplace have warmer tones. The office/front room warms up the upstairs with Wintersweet Gray by Sherwin Williams. The downstairs bath/laundry received a beautiful punch of color, Brooklyn by Behr, and the two sets of French doors cozies up both living areas with a warm brown/black, Black Beauty by Behr.

I’m now adding warm accents with brass features, natural wood, cozy textures, and lots of plants. Though I want it all to magically be done at once now that I’m inspired, it will take years to get to fully complete each room. By then, my style will evolve into something new. Go figure! 😉

Follow along as I turn our quaint Tennessee charmer into a cozy, modern bohemian oasis. I’m excited to share our journey of making this new home our own through thrifted finds and budget-friendly design choices.
