We told you about our favorite pieces from Redefine Home, and now it's time to show you how we might use some of them in a room. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and if you're normally a do-it-yourselfer it's nice to look outside the normal places every once in awhile for sparks in creativity. Visualizing how a room might come together in your mind's eye is key to having all of the right elements in place once everything starts to come together.
This week, Linsi from RedefineHome answers some of our best reader-submitted questions.
Happy Monday fellow design lovers. Last week, I put out a request for your design dilemmas and today I’m here to help.
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions, I wish I could have answered them all, and so I hope we get to do this again sometime…
The first question is from dantimdad:
My home is gradually being remodeled. Since I love mid-century modern, it's being set back to it's 60's roots. My question comes from a gift of 8 franciscan starburst salad plates. I can't fathom paying the prices being asked for the rest of the set except for a few key serving pieces. What currently available dishes would you think would coordinate well with this pattern and not break the bank? BTW, I will be building an MCM china cabinet soon to hold the dishes.
I’ve always believed in having a basic collection of white plates and servingware and playing it up with colorful, pattered dishes and linens. I think this concept works perfectly with your Franciscan collection because you definitely want them to be the star (pardon the pun) of the show.
Using Linsi's philosophy that a home should be curated rather than decorated, we've rounded up a few of our favorite pieces from Redefine Home, pieces that we're sure you're going to fall in love with! Ready for our top picks? Read on!
Hey everyone, it’s my first time writing here on Curbly so I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Linsi Brownson, I’m an interior designer and owner of the online boutique Redefine Home. Today I’m here for a little designer Q&A session. Send me your questions, anything from how to pair your grandmother’s antique settee with your contemporary home to creative uses for everyday objects. I’ll answer these in a follow up post next week.
Please leave me your question(s) in the comments. Make sure to include a photo (or a link to one) where possible. If I choose your question to the answer next week, Curbly will send you a free copy of all three of their "Make It!" eBooks ($30 value)!
My design philosophy is all about creating a home that is curated rather than decorated.
