Tori is the epitome of a Glitter Girl. Her professional titles are many– accomplished designer, event coordinator, stylist, blogger, and creator. An intimate peek into her bright and airy home, however, is an even deeper testament to her natural ﬂair for creative illustration. Tori’s home is brimming with meaningful objects; among punchy walls and thrifted baubles are symbolic accessories, bridal shower gifts, and wedding memorabilia. Taking an evident pride in her home, Tori has carefully and passionately crafted an oasis reminiscent of sunshine and sentimental value.

How would you describe your personal style?
Eclectic, bohemian, super feminine, and a little bit hippie and beachy. I live for things like girly dresses with ﬂouncy details, rufﬂes, and anything 70’s-inspired — like caftans and long ﬂowy dresses. Add some gold jewelry and that’s my style in a nutshell.
Tell us about the way you have decorated your home.
My home is my biggest passion. I’m constantly changing it — moving furniture, re-painting, obsessing. It is the truest illustration of who I am and my personal style — a carefully-selected collection of things from all over (ﬂea markets, travels, Design Within Reach, low to high end) that are layered throughout. It’s very eclectic — I love mixing styles and shocking people a little bit (I own a life size deer made out of plaster and have sombreros from our wedding hanging in our living room, all mixed with a 1920’s ﬂorentine gold chandelier that came from my childhood home). I’m never afraid to experiment, but feel insanely at home in this environment. I grew up with a mom that is an artist and uses color in insane ways. I like to temper everything with a lot of white to keep it fresh and modern. I wish more people took pride in their homes — mine really makes me so very happy, and I always feel like people understand me a bit more once they’ve been in mine.
