Friday Guest Blog Interview: A Life More Fabulous!

Friday Guest Blog Interview: A Life More Fabulous

After several weeks of hosting Friday Guest Blogs of some very brilliant party/entertaining designers — you have to admit, these women are so brilliant — I thought it would be fun to mix it up with a few of my favorite home decorating blogs. Sharalee, from A Life More Fabulous, graciously agreed to answer PDB’s four interview questions first!

Having grown up in Zimbabwe, and later living in an assortment of inspiring places such as Toronto, London, and Colorado, Sharalee brings an eclectically influenced beauty to her design style that is unusual and captivating. She also has a self-proclaimed ‘life long obsession with interior design and beautiful houses’ and an ‘unhealthy collection of interior design magazines and tear sheets’, all of which have slowly transformed into a fantastic blog that launched in April of this year.

‘I’ve started A Life More Fabulous to fuel my passion for all things design and to chronicle and share some of my finds.’

I started following A Life More Fabulous on my RSS feed just a couple of months ago, and I go back again and again to get bits of inspiration for here and there. My reader (don’t have one? you should really consider) has become like that of my favorite decorating magazines — I pour my morning cup of coffee, sit back at my desk and read through the latest postings of those blogs which I love most. It’s like flipping through a well-worn Elle Decor — you may actually never do those grand room ideas you find, but the daily design impact will nevertheless leave an impression on you.

My decorating style is forever pulled and twisted into this direction and that with the regular reading of my favorite design blogs… and so without further ado — I present my interview with A Life More Fabulous!

What inspires your design style?

-The outdoors: the best design can only hope to imitate nature.
-Architectural details: I’m obsessed with homes that are artfully built, inside and out.
-Beautiful, feminine details: flowers, ruffles, sparkles… all in moderation, of course ;).
-A clean white background: as much as I try to deviate, there’s something so equally calming and inspiring about a blank slate.

What do you love most about what you do?

The fact that every day is new, a chance to be creative – look at things from a different angle and (hopefully!) leave the world a little bit lovelier in the process…

What are your favorite design trends?

I love the fact that people are starting to mix things up —  hi/lo items (Target + Chanel), ethnic styles (an Eastern Suzani on a Parisian chair), time periods (Parisian antiques with mid-century modern).

What are three design suggestions that you would like to offer our readers?

{1} Take a look at your closet, your favourite outfit, your favourite pasttimes – your home should look like you! You love to go out dancing in sequins, why not throw in a sequined pillow or a disco ball?

{2} Travel – however, and whenever you can – it always opens your eyes to new possibilities, awes you with the beauty of the world we live in, surprises you with the most curious things you never knew existed until that moment. You’ll always learn something new.

{3} Having a space you love to be in doesn’t involve having all new furniture – it can be as simple as a single blossom by your bedside (or whever you’ll see it most!).
