Fashion Blogger (for a day): Launa

Launa's blog, A Place and a Space, is new to me but I've been so impressed by her stuff. Particularly her striped hallway (hello, project for my next house) and her sense of humor over her adventures in painting and decorating.

I love what she did with her guest post...such a unique take and a fun way to think about translating the things you love into other mediums!

I'm so excited to be here and so thankful that Kayla shared her blog space with me.

My name is Launa, and I write the little blog called A Place and a Space.

My blog was created to share the journey of the search for our (myself and my husband whom I lovingly refer to as, The Dude) first house.

One, two, skip a few and we have a home!

Now, I share the journey of our lives and our decorating adventure.

My first superficial love is clothes.

Let's get that out there right away.

I love to try new trends and experiment with new looks.

As far as decorating, I had no idea where to begin.

As I was scouring my closet one day I realized that I have a lot of pieces that I love and the best way to make my home feel homey,

was to incorporate my favorite fashion accessories into home decor.

That is where it all started...


Exhibit A:  Ruffles

My favorite go-to clutch is pure ruffle goodness.

Clutch:  ASOS

Nothing makes my heart flutter me feel more feminine than a ruffle.

I knew I had to incorporate this in our home without going overboard.

Pillow:  Pier 1

I found these amazing little ruffle accent pillows that add the perfect amount of femininity without going overboard for The Dude.

Exhibit B: Pink!

Another fashion accessory that I love is my pink cocktail ring.
I love this thing.  
It certainly doesn't go with every outfit, but I definitely try to wear it with each one.

Ring:  Kate Spade

I love pink but my Dude is not a huge fan.
In order to keep the budget from disappearing peace in our household, I kept the pink to a minimum and found a pink (ruffled-yeah!) blanket to cozy up with during our movie nights.
Anytime other than movie nights, it stays somewhat hidden.

Blanket:  Marshalls

One thing that is difficult for me in fashion and home decor is adding color.
I love color, but I really love it used in small doses to make an impact.
I don't always do that, but I try.

Exhibit C:  Pops of color

One Christmas I was obsessed with this yellow wool coat.
The puff sleeves.
 The color. 
The toggles. 
Oh my!

Well, Mom Santa pulled through that Christmas and I was a happy girl!
I love to wear this coat with neutrals so it really pops.

Coat:  French Connection
I stumbled upon this patterned yellow chair and thought it would be perfect against our neutral colored walls.
I love yellow and grey together and this chair did not disappoint.

Chair:  Home Goods
And there you have it.
A little peek into my journey of making a house, our home.
A huge Thank You to Kayla!
Thank you so much for having me.
