What is bust out of boring all about?

You hear me say this phrase allllll the time. It’s what I’ve called my weekly Facebook Live and Instagram Live show; it’s the name of this blog; and I’ve shared a little about why I feel so strongly about helping people bust out of boring.

Bust out of boring means…

…not settling for a brown sofa when your heart is set on teal.

….choosing the hot-pink Aztec-inspired rug for your living room because it makes your heart sing (even when you’re afraid your mother-in-law won’t like it).

…appreciating the whitewashed farmhouse trend, but knowing when to courageously add color because all-white isn’t really you.

…that it’s okay to be inspired by interiors you see on Pinterest, but not feel compelled to copy them in order to feel like you’ve done it ‘right’

…saying ‘no’ to anything in your home that you don’t love or you don’t use.

…being willing to ignore trends that don’t feel authentic to you in order to curate a home that does.

…knowing that in order to create the home of your dreams, you might need to enlist the help of an interior designer to cheer you on.

…that nobody else gets to decide what you love, and you have the power to choose what belongs in your home.
