Jen Streeter of Blissfully Eclectic
She's another Girl with a Green Sofa and a beautiful pink Jonathan Adler one too, today on the blog is the lovely Jen Streeter of @blissfully_eclectic. Jen and I have known each other for nearly two years; she co-hosted #colourmyhome with me over 12 months ago and she is honestly one of the nicest people you could "meet" on the gram, because obviously I haven't met her, being Indiana based.
I'd love to go and visit this beauty of a home, though. Thoughtfully created for her large family it oozes style and comfort, boho, eclectic, a real home.
My husband and I have 5 children and live in Indiana where we own our own construction company. We’ve been remodelling both residential and commercial properties for over 15 years. We are currently renovating our historical home for an eclectic family of 7.
Our historical home is well over 100 years old, and it’s been added on to many times over the years. For me, the personality of this house gave me free reign to have a lot of fun with the decor and design! I kept the design of living room very fun and relaxed. The outdoor swing in the living room was the perfect addition as far as our kids are concerned! It’s definitely one of the most used pieces of furniture in that space. And we kept the old brick detail around the big open window and painted it along with the brick fireplace. It gives such a romance and keeps the long history of the home in the design. Then the wood feature wall was a recent addition that we absolutely love! It gives the space a cosy feel, and contrasts perfectly with the berry fuscia Jonathan Adler couch.
Our entryway is a small space that I really wanted to pack a design punch when you first walk in. I absolutely love the triangle wallpaper paired with the rustic pallet wood for a cosy chic atmosphere. The gallery wall was just a fun element to put together! I love pairing unexpected art and wall decor for a personalized feel. The bench is actually a thrifted coffee table that I put a throw over and it functions wonderfully in the space. And the round jute rug adds a touch of boho that love to add to my designs.
My bedroom space is one that I really focused on making romantic and magical. I wanted it to feel dreamy, relaxing, and conjure notions of a faraway oasis. With a big family like ours (five kids ranging from ages 18 down to 4), I needed a space that was soothing and nurturing. I love mixing old, thrifted pieces like that white enamel table with my gorgeous peach velvet settee. It gives the room that right amount of relaxed chic that gives me all the heart eyes! And the drapes behind the bed serve a two-fold purpose. They not only give dimension and texture to the room, but they really lend that $5 thrifted iron bed some softness.
Green couch room
This is our media room that also functions as a guest space when need be. This room is all about comfort and colour. I used a colourful and bold patterned removable wallpaper as art behind the couch and it works so well with the green velvet sofa. And take a look at that lamp...I scored that at a thrift store for so cheap! I absolutely love thrifting for those statement pieces!
