Get your “Pin It” fingers ready, ladies, because you’re about to be inspired by one of the prettiest home tours we’ve seen in a while. We’ve professed our love and admiration for blogger McKenna Bleu’s bright, girly, gorgeous style here before, so when we got a chance to talk to her about her decorating style, we weren’t entirely surprised that the photos of her home were just as enviable as her wardrobe.
In case you aren’t familiar with McKenna, she’s a military wife, which means she moves a lot. After living in Boston, where we got to know her, she and her hubby were relocated to D.C. and then a few months later, San Diego. A girl after my own heart, she sees each move as a chance to totally revamp her space. For her cross-country move to California, she enlisted the help of online interior decorating service Havenly, working with designer Amy Fasnacht to get the relaxed, beachy and of course, feminine, home of her dreams. Check out the gorgeous pics and get exclusive design tips from both McKenna and Amy, below.
“Before I start any room design the first thing I decide on is my color palette. A set color palette instantly makes a space feel more cohesive.” -Mckenna
“To create balance, mix feminine details such as tufting and soft light fabrics with more masculine features like wood or metal.” – Amy
“Adding a mix of patterns and textures enhance any design and makes it feel more unique and personal.” -McKenna
“To create a gallery wall like McKenna’s first chose a theme. This doesn’t need to be concrete, but for McKenna’s we went with prints that coordinated color wise and subject wise (beach, palm trees, travel prints) and mixed and matched wooden and white frames.” – Amy
“Incorporate your favorite things, for me travel is a huge part of my life so my coffee table books are all about travel.” – McKenna
“Chose pillows with varying textures and patterns. Mix a fun fur pillow with a bold pattern and a pretty blush color.” – Amy
“Less is more! Too much clutter is overwhelming.” -McKenna
“Chose personal details to finish out the space. A cowhide rug, antlers, or a map of somewhere personal can tie the room together for the perfect mix of beach, Western influences and industrial details.” – Amy
