If My Blog Was A Room - Next Up - Conspicuous Style

Happy Wednesday and welcome to the series If My Blog Was A Room... where I pose the challenge to think of your blog as an actual space. What would that space look like? I am so excited to have Stacy here from her design blog Conspicuous StyleHer blog has amazing design inspirations with a tour of her gorgeous home- I have already bookmarked some of her beautiful design ideas for our home! Here is her great blog header:



And here is what she came up with! Take it away, Stacy!

Thank you so much, Amber, for having me.  It is a real honor and I am thrilled to be here.


My blog is different from my house.  I see it as a place to dream, and dream big.  As a lifelong believer that more is generally more, I tend to post about rooms that I may never have (because they are too expensive, not child friendly, don't fit in with the rest of my house, etc.)   However, I do think that my blog is a reflection of me... my feelings, thoughts, desires, and things that I truly love.  So, if my blog was a room, it would be a room filled with mirrors, and might look something like this:










Because I am a dreamer and use my blog to express those dreams, it would also have a to-die-for patio and view:
And a touch of modern...maybe even more modern than I would do in real life, like black ceilings:



It would also have some big contrast, like ghost chairs and rustic stone walls, because what I'm inclined to write about can change a lot from day to day:

There would most definitely be a crystal chandelier, as my obsession with them has been renewed:


An last, but certainly not least, it would have to have dark stained floors, as I post almost weekly about how much I dislike my orange wood floors and want to change them to brown.  Actually, I was thinking that it would be difficult to fit all of my thoughts into one image, but this one is a close summary, with its dark floors, aged mirrors, modern wallpaper and crystal chandelier -- throw in a  stone wall and it would be perfect:




Thank you again Amber.  It was a pleasure being here!

Thanks so much for being here, Stacy! I love the elegance of these rooms, with their gorgeous mirrors, stunning chandeliers and dark wood floors! I also love to add a bit of rustic to the mix, for added interest. Thanks for the amazing eye candy!
