White Walls Wednesday - Kristin Bigouette

Back in the day, the only thing that stopped me from peeking in to the windows of neighbors' houses was the fear of getting arrested. ;) I have ALWAYS been in love with how other people decorate their homes (I am THAT guest at parties hinting around at getting a house tour), what they cherish and put on display, the stories behind their most treasured pieces, and seeing a glimpse in to their lives.

Now - thanks to the beauty of the interwebs (big shout out to Pinterest here) we are invited in to homes all around the world and can be inspired, touched, motivated and connected by photos and rooms and ideas that we share. And THAT is how I found Krstin Bigouette!

Kristin is the third installment of my new White Walls Series - and when I saw the photos of her living room online I immediately wanted to see what the rest of her house looked like because I loved her style!  Fortunately for us Kristin started a blog about a month ago - Willow Leaf Inspired - and gives us a glimpse in to her kitchen, office (I am CRAZY for how she displays her business name on the wall!), living room, and much more! One of the things I like best about Kristin's style is that she takes AFFORDABLE items (IKEA, WalMart, HomeGoods, etc) and adds her own touch to them. She created a look that is accessible to everyone!

Thanks so much for opening your home to us Kristin - can't wait to see what you create next!

Hi, I’m Kristin. Army wife, midwestern-er, hairstylist, lover of all things decor! I am currently residing in Maryland with my husband and loyal canine companion, Oscar. We have lived here for 8 years, which in Army time is basically forever. I have worked full time as a hairstylist for the past 10 years but spend any and all extra time trying to make our base housing feel like a home! For all the military wives out there, you know, the struggle is real.

My love for decorating started when we were first stationed in Maryland. Our wedding gift from my parents was to furnish our first home together…Willow Leaf Lane. I was amazed how much a little paint and a million trips to Home Goods could make! (Oh, did I tell you we have 3 Home Goods just in the immediate area?! SCORE!) After a few years in that house we decided to try living in base housing. 6 years later we’re still here! I dream about the day we have our “forever home” and I can do all the modifications I want! But until then, I will work with the white walls I was given!
