I am so excited today to introduce a new hashtag, #FearlessHome, which is all about being bold and fearless in your home. Outside of your home, I recommend being more careful, of course… I mean all the crazies out there! But in your home, be as fearless and crazy as you want. This tag is the brainchild of my friend Arielle of Scotch & Nonsense, whose home is perfectly bold. Arielle is unafraid of color and dramatic choices. She’s invited a few of us to cohost, and to be honest with you, I am probably the least fearless out of all of these talented ladies, but I was hoping that joining in would give me a little more of a push to be more adventurous in my design choices. I’ll be explaining the details of the tag at the end of this post, after I introduce my cohosts.
I tend to stick with what I know and love, but I have made some rather dramatic choices over the years. My absolute favorite is my kitchen backsplash, which is one of my personal favorite colors that I do stick with. However, in a world where white subway tile abounds, I consider a turquoise backsplash risky. It’s a more permanent makeover so it’s a choice I’m stuck with for a long time. Luckily, in the three years I have had it, I’ve never once regretted that decision. My heart still swells when I see it.
Arielle is a master with moody. I adore how she mixes vintage art, glam and darkness. Her library is a prime example of that.
Kimberly of Swoon Worthy is also joining as cohost, and this lady mixes pattern and glam and feminine like no other!Brittany aka Britt Kingery wows me with her mix of bold jewel tone colors. She’s got so many amazing spaces with beautiful vintage carpets, but her kitchen is my personal favorite… she painted the floors green and I just want to kiss them. And she has 3 dogs who walk on those floors, so that’s saying a lot.Jenna of Rain on a Tin Roof always pushes the envelope in her daring choices. Her dining room in her new home is so dramatic and I love the way the chairs pop off the walls.
So now if you want to get in on the #FearlessHome action, here’s how it works! Tag your new instagram photos with #fearlesshome and follow all of your hosts. (Find us all on instagram here: Cassie, Arielle, Kimberly, Brittany, Jenna).We’ll randomly share images we love on instagram throughout the month, but on the first Wednesday of each month, we’ll feature our favorites on our blogs as well! We’d love to have you join us in the movement to live boldly in your home.
Be sure to check out all of my cohosts!
I am looking forward to seeing how you create your fearless home!
