A Little of This & That… Renovating, Decorating, DIY Projects & Family
A Little of This & That… Renovating, Decorating, DIY Projects & Family

Welcome to another Friday! Ahhh… I can already feel the adventurous (and relaxing) spirit of the weekend beckoning. There’s nothing like a good Friday.

I’m very excited to be joined by Emily of Jones Design Company today as I welcome another guest blogger to this very irregular Friday Guest Blog Interview series. I am always thrilled when I come across a like-minded blogger that someone somewhere recommends that I follow… and I hope that through this interview series you will find a few new wonderful, captivating blogs that you really dig, too. Plus it is always fun to hear design tips & tricks from other friendly and fun bloggers out there.

Jones Design Company is a blog that I have subscribed to for a while now primarily for the wonderful family values that Emily shares through her regular design/home related posts. She’s creative, thoughtful and very conscientious of the beauty of design – from the simple (a delicious recipe) to the detailed (the homey abode that she’s created for her family – a preview after the jump). I think that you will enjoy {love!} her style too, and I invite you to listen in as she answers my usual four interview questions.

I’ll see you after the jump!

What inspires your design style?

My design style is a strange combination of country, industrial and classic with a touch of pretty thrown in.  I love a layered look with lots of neutral texture – think linen + chippy wood + tarnished silver with graphic fabrics + dark wood + shiny metal.  I am most inspired by things that have history and have held up over the test of time – old books, classic decor like tufted chairs and mensware-inspired fabrics.  And I have a thing for ferns.

What do you love most about what you do?

I love being creative. To design art, do decorating/crafting/sewing projects, share my life on the blog and teach others how to reach their blogging goals is so beyond what I could have imagined when I first started my business 10 years ago.  To work from home and still be able to take my kids to the park and do art project with them is a blessing. But probably my favorite part of doing what I do is that I get to do all of this with my husband who is also my business partner. To watch our strengths work together and find success as a team is the best.

What are your favorite design trends?

I like the industrial trend happening right now, I still love chalkboards and chevron {in small doses} and family photos in front of barns.

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

{1.} Invest in classic, neutral pieces for your largest furniture purchases.

{2.} Layer color and texture using rugs, pillows and accessories.

{3.} Add fresh flowers or greenery to bring life to any room.

Thank you, Emily!
