a less-styled life.

when it comes to styling or rather the ‘unstyled, but styled look’ (stay with me here) i’m gonna give big props to interior designer leanne ford. leanne just makes it look effortless (see above and just below) — which is really the desired effect. the organized but cohesive chaos, but not too over-thought look is always my idea of great style. the french do it impeccably too, and as i try to dissect what it is about these looks that i love the most i think it’s just the idea that these stylists have gathered belongings and collections that actually mean something or have a real sentimental value to their owners. it’s hard to define because sometimes less is more, and other times cluttered overkill looks amazing — like in many of leanne’s looks. balance is key, but keeping true to your heart is always the best start. if you decorate with collections you love you can’t help but make it perfectly styled and uniquely you.

  1. i’m so into Leanne Ford lately – such great style! love watching her show. dream designer for my imaginary-but-maybe-someday dream home :).

  2. Hi! I love your post about “less styling”. As much as I love style, it’s refreshing to just let things somewhat be as they are. That doesn’t mean a mess, it just means that sometimes, the natural beauty is nicer than any style can ever be. A style all its own.

  3. If you surround yourself with things you love, it always looks good together. We tend to be drawn to similar colors or styles over and over. Plus, piles and a little disheveled makes things real and lived in.
