There’s no doubt that having a clean and complete space plays a major role in productivity and peace of mind. For entrepreneur and lifestyle blogger, Brooke Burnett of One Small Blonde, having a place that looks and feels perfectly put together is the key to getting her creative juices flowing and keeping her sane.
“As a fashion blogger, clothes tend to get thrown all over the place. Now that my bedroom is complete, it’s helped me become more organized with my clothes and blog posts,” says Brooke. And while putting together outfits comes as second nature to the blogger, she admits that she isn’t nearly as confident about interior design.
“I’m so indecisive when it comes to home decor. I love styling my wardrobe, but home decor is so permanent and stressful! I can put together an outfit any day, but when it comes to visualizing something long-term I freak!” says Brooke. She was plagued with indecision and the pressure of making substantial purchases without being able to see how everything would look all together.
“I loved that my designer was able to use the Laurel & Wolf platform to virtually show me what the bedroom would look like before making such large purchases. It helped me feel more at ease with buying new items,” she says.
Interior designer Caroline Rodgers took Brooke’s simple, yet sophisticated fashion aesthetic and adopted it in a timeless black, white, and metallic color palette. “I’m not one for bright colors, which is why you see a lot of white with subtle accent colors. I like modern design, but also want comfortable and cozy living spaces,” says Brooke.
Soft touches of pink, like the fresh hydrangeas on her dresser and the blush throw sprawled across her bed, are the perfect juxtaposition with the leopard pillows and tailored, nailhead upholstered headboard. Just like her wardrobe, Brooke likes to build off of the basics by starting with a clean slate and then adding personality with her accessories.
“I love using accessories to enhance my outfits and my home decor. I stick with the basics for any large purchase, and use accent decor to change things up every season,” says Brooke. Holding true to her chic, yet minimal design sense, Brooke doesn’t have to worry about breaking the budget or ever being out of style.
