The political world isn’t usually the first place we look to for style advice, but for Lindsay Souza, fashion and design were passions even while she worked on Capitol Hill. Her popular style blog, The Pursuit of Style, started as a creative outlet that served as a break from her politics-focused day job, but grew into a budding career in interior design. Since Lindsay constantly has us coveting the items she features on The Pursuit of Style, we couldn’t wait to peek inside her home. Of course we found all the classic, sophisticated, and playful details we’ve come to expect of Linday’s enviably good taste!

Tell us about your blog and how you started it.
I started writing The Pursuit of Style in 2009 for the same reason I think a lot of people have started blogging: I was in desperate need of a creative escape. I was fresh out of college and working at my first job in politics when I quickly realized I enjoyed decorating my first apartment more than anything I was doing at work. I stumbled onto this whole world of design blogs and was hooked! It became a great outlet for me to share my other interests.
