Design + creative expression—Did you know that June is Pride month?
Many of you may or may not know that this global event was established back in 1969 as a tribute to those involved in the stonewall riots and is celebrated every June. Living in the city of Chicago, its hard not to notice the Gay Pride Parade and its tremendous following.
On my way to a home staging consult, I couldn’t help but snap a photo of this residential development.
This photo not only catches eyes but also gives smiles. “The Land of Make Believe” with its whimsical decor seemed so inviting. It made me want to open the door and walk through so I could forget the world for just a moment. With so much uncertainty, it is even more critical that our homes provide a sense of security and self-expression. Design is a way to create an environment that reflects your personal style. The LGBTQ community has done just that.
Being a home stylist and interior designer, I often look at the world and places around me through a different lens. This decor spoke to me in a way that reminded me to slow down, breathe and take in what’s going on in the world right now.
