As I’ve mentioned a few times here on the blog (and as I’m sure you’ve probably noticed), my style has evolved since I began IBC more than five years ago. Like many of you, I’m constantly on the hunt for new design ideas.
Lately, one of my go-to sources for inspiration is Homepolish. I’ve linked to them a few times here. Located in larger cities, they are a service that helps you with your design dilemmas, whether you’re doing a total renovation or finding the perfect finishing touches. They also have The Magazine which is were I find myself spending most of my time. It’s an inspiration mecca!
I found Homepolish via Orlanda Soria. (Again, I’ve mentioned him a few times on the blog.) He is the creative director for Homepolish and also a blogger at Hommemaker. Of the many fantastic designers on Homepolish, he is among my favorites. (His Instagram feed is also great. He’s hilarious and inspirational at the same time.) You can also follow Homepolish via @Homepolish on social media.
You’re probably wondering what my point is with all of this? Well, about a month ago I got an email from the folks at Homepolish to see if I wanted to collaborate. After I picked myself up off the floor and regained my composure, my answer was a resounding “Yes!”
I am excited to tell you that we have teamed up in two spectacular ways. First, we are collaborating on a Pinterest board which went live this morning. The board is titled “Mid Century Metallics.” It’s a fun way for me to further explore my new design style and continue to feed my obsession with metallics. You can check out that board here. I’d love to know what you think.
We’ve also partnered with the folks at DwellStudio to offer an amazing giveaway to the readers of IBC. You all know I always do my best to get you some goodies whenever possible.
In celebration of metallics, Homepolish and IBC are giving away two exceptionally beautiful pieces. First, is this set of Brass Bowls. I seriously can’t begin to tell you how wonderful these are. They add the perfect amount of sparkle and style to any space. I especially love them on a bookcase. Secondly, every well-dressed space needs something to add a bit of interest, so we are also giving away this unique Oval Metal Object.
The giveaway is live and you can enter to win via Homepolish by clicking HERE. The giveaway will end at 11:59 p.m. EST on October 30, 2014.
Pretty sweet, right?
Enjoy and good luck!
