Alaina in J. Crew. shirt and pants with Gucci flats. Her home office is filled with her favorite books and brightly colored art. Her favorite piece of art is the yellow letterpress poster that reads, “Live What You Love.”
The oversized inspiration board that hangs in Alaina’s office was one of her many DIY home projects. She covered a standard cork board with neutral-colored duck cloth and lined the edges with gold nailhead pins.
How do you add sparkle to your life and to your home?
Quite literally with sparkly things! A boy I once dated nicknamed me magpie (a bird known for hoarding shiny objects) because of my affinity for glitter, sequins, and gold. I appreciate indulging in fun, unexpected, eye-catching items. After all, life’s short, why not make it sparkle? I say get the pair of glitter heels. Wear the sequin dress on a Tuesday. Light candles when the sun goes down. And hang a disco ball in your living room. If it makes you smile, odds are it will make those around you smile, too.
