Long before I actually met Tiffany Wendel, I had stumbled upon her blog, not realizing that she was in Seattle. She's a personal stylist whose look I instantly loved, which makes sense considering she (like me) is a former California girl. So when I finally got to meet her - and got a peek into her home - it was no surprise that her cheery personality was infused into her decor too...
The yellow sofa shares another trait with its owner besides a sunny disposition - it expresses her love of vintage (just wait until you see her closet!).
When I asked Tiffany what pieces in her home best represented her personality, however, she paused and said... "the flamingos" because they "lend a sense of humour to the space". And we both instantly agreed that the best kind of design is the kind that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Sidenote: the artwork behind the pink pair was done by her talented twin sister Tracy Rocca.
Across from the living room, the dining room lends some more bold touches, and a super unique DIY done by Tiffany with the help of some nailheads and cowhide. With them she created a permanent 'tablecloth' for the worn dining table and covered it with a sheet of glass. It's badass. The wave art is - of course - a nod to her California days.
Two stunning pendants top the all white kitchen. I love that it at once feels modern and fresh but down to earth with the checkered floors and farmhouse-style details.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is calm, cool and collected...
With a pop of fuchsia of course. You can see the mix of antique, vintage and new shine through in this space.
And don't get me started on the closet! We're going to save that one for a whole other post, I think.
And in the bath? Wouldn't you know - another pair of flamingos in a paint-by-number art piece hang on the saturated blue walls.
I love the happy vibe of this cheerful home, don't you? To see more of it, hop over to the pinterest board later where I'll have the whole tour posted with some outtakes!
