Read how interior design blogger, Kristin Orosco, redesigned her living space using Joybird products. Trust us – you’ll love what she was able to create!
Kristin Orosco is the perfect example of why it’s always worth it to follow your dreams. She started her online presence as a fashion blogger. Once she became a mother, however, she transitioned her content to center around motherhood and built a community of supportive men and women who are in the same stage of life she was in. But, even though she loved the following and content she was posting, something was missing. She soon realized that she wanted to make one last change in her content to focus on her passion – interior design. She’s been posting amazing home decor content on her Instagram, Everything Kris, ever since. Pretty inspiring, right?
Speaking of inspiration, Kristin recently looked at her living space and began to feel that it needed a change. The room was rustic and comfortable, but it’s color palette and furniture needed to be updated.
“I wanted to simplify my space. I loved the idea that if I had white and light grays as a base, I could always keep things looking fresh and just add accents or different pillows whenever I need to.” – Kristin Orosco
To change up her living space, Kristin decided to lean into her favorite design aesthetic, California Casual-Chic. Once she got started, she used beautiful bright whites and neutrals with wood tones to create a canvas she could build upon. She then expertly added in pops of color and metal accents that helped elevate the overall palette of the room to be stylish, yet functional for everyday life with a family.
To address her furniture needs, Kristin turned to Joybird and got the Preston Grand Sofa and two Collins Chairs. She fell in love with all three pieces because they each have sleek, clean lines and come in colors that fit into her overall vision perfectly.
“The clean lines of our Preston Sofa gives our space a more modern feel and our Collins Chairs add in warmth with their wood tones. It’s a perfect balance! The quality of our furniture is going to hold up with my kids and the sofa fits the entire family!” – Kristin Orosco
Now, Kristin’s space feels much larger and more functional. It’s a place where she can watch her family live and grow, which is something we love to see. Didn’t she make redesigning a living space look easy? We asked her what she thinks people should consider when redesigning their living spaces, and this is what she had to say:
“Samples are great to get first! Go with a color palette that makes you happy and tape off the dimensions of the furniture on the ground before you purchase because it helps visualize it!” – Kristin Orosco
Kristin showed us that redesigning a living space doesn’t have to be complicated if you have a vision. To follow along on her journey, don’t hesitate to give her Instagram a follow. And, take a page out of her book and don’t be afraid to change paths in order to pursue your dream job!
