When Chloe Rey moved into her new home, she knew she wanted to create a bold, minimalist design that would fit into her family’s day-to-day life. Keep reading to learn how she did it!
Chloe Rey is a mom, wife, and content creator focused on sharing minimalist style and fashion. She’s always loved taking and editing photos, so when she joined Instagram in 2013, she was able to share her life through her unique photography style.
Years, a husband, and a baby boy later, Chloe still mainly posts about how she incorporates a minimalist style into her day-to-day life. So, when she and her family moved into a new and bigger apartment, she had an opportunity to stretch her design muscles. But, before the movers came, she knew she needed to find the right furniture and decor pieces that would keep her design streamlined but still functional.
“I was really intentional about each piece because it’s nice to have a functional yet beautiful space to live in every day.” – Chloe Rey
Chloe focused her attention on her living room and bedroom right away. Chloe considers her design aesthetic as, of course, minimalist, yet bold. She enjoys keeping her spaces simple and paired down, but loves to incorporate contrasting elements. Since she does favor minimalism, Chloe only adds pieces to her design that she truly loves (right now it’s a mid-century modern design, velvet, and color palettes with pops of bright hues against neutrals.)
Luckily, Chloe found two pieces that blew her away: the Briar Sofa and the Colette Dresser from Joybird. She knew they were right for her new space because both items are versatile, functional, and deliver a high impact on the rooms they are in. Armed with these pieces, she gathered plants, upcycled furniture pieces, and intentional decor items, she got to work designing her new spaces. The results are simply breathtaking.
“The Briar sofa is one of my favorite pieces in our home! We searched high and low for a lighter, neutral-colored sofa that wouldn’t stain. I thought that my dream of having a couch in a lighter fabric wasn’t possible until we stumbled upon Joybird. So happy we were able to find a fabric that’s so easy to keep clean with a toddler.” – Chloe Rey
Chloe decided to partner with Joybird because of our continued commitment to creating long-lasting, beautifully-made furniture that can fit into any lifestyle. Here’s what Chloe had to say about the partnership:
“In a world of disposable items, I appreciated that Joybird creates items that’ll last for years. Since we live with less, being intentional about the quality of items and what we bring into our home is so important.” – Chloe Rey
