    How to Curate the Right Artwork for Your Home | Adorning Your Living Space

    How to Curate the Right Artwork for Your Home | Adorning Your Living Space

    We had a recent question from one of our listeners asking if we could do an episode dedicated to putting up artwork in your home, so today that’s what we will be talking about. When trying to figure out how to decorate your home, first think of what kind of art you like, and then we recommend using Pinterest where you can create your own compilation of artworks that you like. We discuss some of the different types of art and have noticed that most people don’t like a figure or subject in their art, but others, like Sue who is an extrovert, love having people in their art, so really it comes down to who you are. Pay attention to size and scale to determine how your art will fit into the design of your living space.

    Where to start 2:33
    Forming your own opinion 4:09
    Scale 7:08
    Photography 11:29
    Gloppy oils in the kitchen 13:49

    “When you are curating art, a lot of people don’t know, again we’ve said this before on previous podcasts, art is the hardest layer. Most people don’t know what to do with themselves when we come up with art. They’re like, ‘Should I like that? Is it personal? How should I respond to this?’ So we often do a few presentations, reselections on art.” 2:11

    How to Style When You Have Conflicting Tastes | Work with Differing Opinions

    How to Style When You Have Conflicting Tastes | Work with Differing Opinions

    Today we are talking about a highly visual topic, so you’re going to need to tap into your visual mind to really understand this one. If you share your life with somebody, you most likely have different tastes, so we want to talk about how you can style with clashing tastes. We suggest creating a North Star, or a spot where you can both compile visuals of what you want in your home so that you can have a good idea of what the other person wants, and then come to an agreement in the areas where your tastes can work together. Based on our experience, men tend to have a more contemporary style while women lean toward a more cozy style, but this can also vary depending on a person’s age and what they think portrays success.

    Creating a North Star 3:09
    Color 8:13
    Never hate anything in your home 10:39
    Whoever will be using the room most should have say 13:21
    Masculine and feminine elements in style 18:50
    Learn the reason behind why they hate something 22:25

    “Always start with what we call as the North Star, and that is pages and pages of visuals. We do this for our clients in Pinterest boards, and then we put together packets. You could have a large bulletin board at your house, you can take an entire wall and just continue to tape things up. You can do it all virtually if you’re a paperless household, do it on your computers and save back and forth. You can both be on a Pinterest board.” 6:59

    How to Make a Rental Feel Like Home | Spruce Up Your Lease

    How to Make a Rental Feel Like Home | Spruce Up Your Lease

    We’ve received a question from one of our listeners asking, “We want to know how to decorate a rental.” and we realize a lot of you might be in that same situation and want to know how you can make your rental feel beautiful and homey. We talk about how you can hang art in your rental and the best way to go about that using art hangers, and the brand we recommend is OOK. Being in a rental is also a great time to invest in some rugs because you can take them with you when you move, and then draperies can really soften the feel of your rooms, lending a sense of comfort to your living space.

    Art 3:03
    Rugs 7:22
    Drapery 7:55
    Replacing hardware or paint 10:47
    Furniture 12:38
    Lighting 15:06
    Plants 18:13

    “I think drapery rods, you’re gonna use them wherever you go. Your ceiling heights may change, you might have to get new draperies, but it will add such a layer that it’ll make it feel like home. It’ll make it feel finished and softer, and I’m a huge advocate.” 8:14

Inspired over the pond

As a Brit, I’m not sure where I expected to find life-giving interiors inspiration but I don’t think it was Utah. Let me tell you though, Dear Alice makes my heart sing every time I listen. You have such a wealth of knowledge and I have found so many new sources of inspiration thanks to you ladies - please don’t stop!
