For my next "Accessorizing Life with" feature, I had an incredible opportunity to interview Justina Blakeney, an amazing stylist and designer with awesome boho-chic swag. I fell in love with Justina's blog about two years ago when I first stumbled upon it for tips and tricks on home decor. With my recent move, I definitely went to her blog for inspiration and creativity - her flair for bold colors and mixing prints is absolutely amazing.
What I love most about Justina's content is her curation of visually compelling images on Pinterest. There's no way to describe it but simply awe-inspiring and b-e-a-utiful. Whether you're re-decorating your home or figuring out what new frames to add to your wall gallery - Justina's blog is a perfect guide for the talented and newbies alike.
Hope you all enjoy getting to know her!
1. Who/what inspires you?
My daughter inspires me, as do plants!

Right now, my favorite home accessory is this jungalow hanging planter designed by me and crafted here in LA by MFEO.

Colorful, soulful and wild.

I think that the online courses that I'm teaching in styling are extremely rewarding. For $19, anyone can sign up for the class and I get to witness how much better people's homes look after completing the course. I love hearing from my students, and so many of them have explained how they look at their home in such a new light since taking the classes, and I love that the courses are an accessible and affordable way for people to increase their quality of life through home decor and styling.
5. What advice would you give to those who are redecorating and accessorizing their happy home?
Don't think of decorating as a story with a beginning, a middle and an end. Decorating is a fluid process. your home should change as you grow as you do -- it's OK for your home to never be 'finished.' Enjoy the journey!
Thank you, Justina for your time and for being a part of the "Accesorizing Life With" series.
Truly appreciate it!
