HOW TO DEFINE THE FOCAL POINT IN A ROOM

The focal point in a room is by definition the first thing you notice when you first walk into a room.  Depending on where you are, it can be anything from oversized art, to a beautifully styled bookcase.  Defining the focal point in a room can at times be very easy, since it’s something that your eyes immediately gravitate to.  Other times, the focal point is not so obvious and you have to create it!

I am excited to give you all a glance at Nicky Sinclair’s world!  Her submission quickly caught my eye and really stood out as a result of the ultra-feminine and glamorous photos of her home.  Apart from her very clear love of all things pink and sparkly, Nicky is a creative soul who is not only a fashion illustrator who runs an Etsy shop, but she is also about to embark onto the next stage of her fairytale dream.  She will be opening her own business soon, Composition Lanean online boutique of curated small home accessories that go hand in hand with her unique style.  Talk about girl power!  Nicky is running two businesses while creating a home for her and her husband!

AN EASTER DINNER

It’s no secret among our loved ones that my husband and I look for any excuse to have a shindig.  In the five years we have lived together, we’ve celebrated many holidays, birthdays and hosted a lot of people.  I don’t know what it is about having our home full of friends and family, but it just makes us happy to gather around the kitchen and talk, while eating good food and drinking good wine (or cocktails…or beer; we don’t discriminate).

A while back, when I first created our Instagram page, I stumbled upon this very colorful feed I just could not get over.  It was interior decorator, Astrid Insieme.  After scrolling through her feed like a legit stalker, I decided to contact Astrid in hopes that she would let me feature her house and I came to find out that she is not only an amazing decorator with the coolest style, but that she is the sweetest person!

HOLA AND WELCOME

 

Zipporah Photography Carla

Hello there and welcome!  My name is Carla (that’s me up there, looking all kinds of pensive) and I am responsible for this little corner in the digital world better known as the Internet.  I created i style, u style to launch my business and to provide a little inspiration to those who enjoy all things stylized.  After many years of trying to find an outlet for myself, I realized that I should just create one.  With that thought came a bigger idea—Are there others out there like me?  Why don’t I also allow them to share what they can do?  But more on that later.
