Rêve d'une Jolie Maison [dreaming of a pretty home]

When I flip through the pages of ELLE décor, I can't help but design my dream home in my mind. When I doze off, I dream of a pretty home. My room now is already my own personal space. Picture frames, mood boards, my kate spade calendar mounted onto the wall all say a little about me. Just like fashion, décor leaves a lot of room for personalization. As I found myself lost in my own thoughts and dreams of a pretty home, I put together some pictures of what I imagined, and it came out even prettier than it was in my mind.
 "A good home must be made, not bought."
The thing I can say about my maison de rêve [dream home] is that it's very detailed. There are flowers, colors and accessories all over the place. You can't keep up with all of the colors and your eyes can't just focus on one spot. I love quirky decorations like old magazines and jewelry sitting on top of them. I definitely have an eye for a new, yet rustic style of interior design. It's easy to have fun with and it reflects my style.
 There I said it, rustic. I absolutely love homes with a lot of vintage accents. Even if it's new, it's easy to emulate an old fashion style décor. I get my love for interiors from my mother. If I had to count the number of furniture stores she's dragged me to in the last seventeen years (sorry, mom) let's just say I couldn't using both hands. But now I appreciate her desire to keep a pretty home, and from that, I've been rêve d'une jolie maison. 
Thanks, Mom.
