Today we're being graced with the presence of the Hovey sisters, Hollister and Porter. Together, they make up the interior decor and staging team behind Hovey Design, they have authored a book called "Heirloom Modern", with jaw dropping photos and personal stories about style, and they also share a home together in Brooklyn...to save money, yes, but also to decorate as freely as they wish, each of them understanding the other's style, intimately. We are especially drawn to their love of antiques, taxidermy, fencing gear, and the quirky way they put it all together!
This week we are talking to our new friend, the fabulous, Dabito. It's hard to pin down exactly what he does because he's multi-talented, but along with being the professional photographer for Justina Blakeney's best selling book, The New Bohemians, Dabito is a stylist, printmaker, graphic designer and the blogger behind Old Brand New. His style mixes modern and vintage, boho neutrals with vivid bright colors, and the whole shebang is heavily influenced by a life of travel. We talk about eclectic design, the importance of beauty and organization, and how thrifting is like dating.
We welcome you to snuggle up on the couch this week with your favorite pet and listen in on our chat with unashamed maximalist Kimberly Duran of the blog Swoonworthy. We fell in love with her "eclectic boho glam" style at first sight. She has truly discovered the design balance of bold colors and tactile fabrics with luxe finishes while still making you feel that you can sit back and put your feet up. We chat about everything from living in a well designed home with pets to designing a room that will afford you a good night's sleep. Come hang out with us for a while!
If you've seen the home of Molly Madfis, the blogger behind Almost Makes Perfect, you'll know why she's one of our favorite sources of inspiration. If you haven't been following her, you soon will, along with pinning her DIYs like crazy after this interview. Pretty much everything she puts out is beautiful and accessible, not requiring major skills in the craft department. If you thought making things for your home either meant having a degree in fine art OR succumbing to the level of dry macaroni, some string and Elmer's glue, you are about to be convinced that there's a middle ground. Molly's style is minimalist with natural materials, neutral shades with only subtle hints of color, and effortlessly elegant. We're so happy to draw back the curtain on the person behind Almost Makes Perfect!
