Stacey Ann Blake didn’t know that becoming a stay at home parent to her two young boys would provide the time needed to discover her new design talent. A talent that has landed her in the esteemed pages of Better Homes and Gardens, Simple Spaces and featured on popular blogs like Design Sponge and The Jungalow. It almost seems unimaginable that a woman so talented didn’t know all along.
Her breathtaking Fayetteville, North Carolina home is what designer’s dreams are made of. A mixture of bold hues like magenta and orange are grounded by rich earthy greens. Eclectic textures and patterns stitch both modern and bohemian styles together seamlessly. Stacey is a gift to the design community and an inspiration for a North Carolina girl like me. Her blog, Design Addict Mom, highlights her thoughts on developing design trends, creative roundups and of course her own amazing living space. Here are a few of my favorites.
This lively chair is the star of the show, displaying its vivid pink color mixed with a striped pattern. The cowhide rug is also a major focal point, creating an unexpected twist in this beautiful living area.
Soft blue wall color acts as the perfect backdrop for bold punches of pink and orange. Intricate patterns from the pillows, rugs and sofa combine for a gorgeous ensemble of color.
This Mid-Century-Modern style chair is a welcomed introduction of deeper color in this space. Various pinks and greens gently cascade down the patterned leaf wallpaper, creating a calming effect.
Oh, to be a kid again! Pictured here are Stacey’s two handsome sons in their magical playroom. A whimsically colored blackboard design creates a sense of wonderment and a myriad of patterns and shapes make this the ultimate fun land!
