When you work as a creative, you’re often surrounded by interesting people and unique opportunities. Graphic designer–turned-blogger (she founded the fabulous Wit & Delight) Kate Arends wove this artistic license into her Minneapolis home featured in The Everygirl, and the result is curated perfection. It’s at once eclectic with sentiment sprinkled throughout each room yet minimal and clutter-free—which is just how we love to decorate.
The key to this formula is her clever outside-the-box styling. Case in point: the vintage suitcase reworked as a cool side table for her mirror and beauty accessories. But we all know Arends has an eye for design—did you see her gorgeous Target collection? Take the tour for yourself, and be sure to grab a pad because you’ll want to take notes.
Open up a small living room with a large-scale leaner. This stylish mirror is the perfect complement and will make any space seem bigger than it is.
These barstools bring a touch of warmth thanks to their timber seats. The metal legs add an industrial touch.
Every bedroom should have a vintage club chair in the corner. Great for getting dressed or as a cozy reading nook.
