Follow along as we detail how Brit Arnesen, creator of the britdotdesign, designed her living room around our gorgeous Aime Sofa.
Brit Arnesen started her creative journey by creating fiber art as a hobby. She would share her pieces on Instagram, but eventually, she began to document other parts of her life there as well, including the renovation and redesign of her 1930s home. Once Brit did, she noticed that she was gaining more and more followers that were getting interested in her home renovation and design skills.
One thing led to another and now, instead of making physical art, she creates art through her home design. To extend her reach, she also runs the wildly popular britdotdesign.com, which is getting design services added in the future (which, after seeing her beautiful living space, we hope you take advantage of!)
Going back to her home redesign, Brit recently revamped her living area. When she remodeled her living room, she turned four smaller rooms into one large one to make it work better for her family. Brit has an eclectic style because she draws inspiration from different types of design including modern, bohemian, luxe, and Hollywood regency aesthetics. Interestingly, before she got to work redesigning her space, she knew that she wanted to focus the entire room around one piece of furniture.
“[My design scheme] really all started when I found the Joybird Aime sofa. I’ve always loved velvet, despite it being a recent trend…so I looked high and low for the perfect velvet sofa. When I found it, everything else fell into place around it.” – Brit Arnesen
Brit used the Aime sofa in Royale Ash to set the tone for her living space. She landed on this color because even though she likes to incorporate color into her designs, she decided to stick with a neutral palette so she could rotate between different splashes of color whenever she wants. The Aime sofa is large, cozy, and perfect for her family. They spend more all of their time at home in their living room, so it was important that their sofa fit into their lifestyle.
“If my Aime sofa were uncomfortable, I’d probably put up with it since it has such an amazing shape. But luckily, it’s good looking AND ridiculously comfortable too!” – Brit Arnesen
Above all else, Brit loved the Aime sofa because of Joybird’s continued commitment to quality and sustainability.
“I chose to partner with Joybird becauseI honestly think they have some of the most unique, good quality furniture online, and for a reasonable price too. I also love the way they’ve partnered with local conservation groups to replenish more trees than what’s used to make each piece of furniture they sell. That’s really incredible!” – Brit Arnesen
The Aime sofa was the perfect addition to Brit’s home. It makes her room look luxurious and homey at the same time, which is exactly what they wanted. She loves how the space turned out, and so do we! If you want to learn more about Brit and her beautiful home, be sure to follow her Instagram and visit her website!
