guest post - living savvy

Hello I am Tiffany from Living Savvy and I am excited to be here today kicking off Elizabeth's vacation!  I am a little jealous that she is having some fun in the sun because currently I am in the middle of packing up my house and moving!  Both exciting and frustrating... I will be moving my house into storage and living at my parents summer house {it only sounds fancy... they live here in Nor Cal in the summer and winter in Hawaii} till our new home is ready.  But since I have packed all of my belonging it makes me think about how my style has evolved over the last 3 years that I have lived here.  And even now as I make plans for my new house, I still have not quite decided what direction I want to go... 

So I thought it would be fun to share the evolution of my house over the last 3 years, maybe a road down memory lane will shoot me in the right direction for my new house!

 I wanted to bring some blue into my house, a color I have never had in my house before, but I wanted it to be soft and still work with my red.  So in the Spring of 2011 I changed out my color scheme to bring navy and reds together.  It was a good change, but not my favorite combo...

This was my family room redo after a design domino effect in Late summer of 2011. {see post} I wanted to tone down the bossy navy with a softer blue.  And I was really lusting over the Covinton fabric!!

I took my moms old wingback chairs from chintz floral to bold floral! {see post}  I loved the fabric then 
{summer 2011} but now I am over it and plan on changing them again for the new house!!

In January of this year I splurged and added some Chiang Mia Dragon to my space!  I am in love and plan on using the endless color pallet to create my new family.  I think this has to be my favorite of all the pillow combinations.  But I think I can tweak it a little bit more for the new space!

Be sure to join me as I take my new suburban home and make it amazing {as soon as I get the keys}!  
I will have loads of DIY's and projects to share with you all!

Thank you so much for having me!  


  1. I love seeing how a house becomes more and more of the owner over time!

  2. Cute room! Can't wait to see progress in the new home!

  3. We all evolve! As your life changes, you will find your design choices change also. It's what makes life fun!
    When you get into your new home, and get the "feel", you will know what will work and what won't! the years go by, you will slowly make changes....Don't worry, it's fun and exciting! Enjoy

  4. i love all the color and pattern tiffany uses!

  5. Hi tiffany! All our houses I guess evolve with the changes in our tastes and of course, our maturity. I love your use of colors - very vibrant, fresh and energetic! Speaks a lot about you I guess! Great post, can't wait to see what the Dragons can show me about you! :-)

  6. Love seeing the evolution of your room! We moved in 2 years ago and while it's taken AGES to get this home in some sort of order, it's still changing and my tastes are still evolving - makes for some interesting challenges design-wise! That wing back looks amazing! x

  7. Ever evolving ... that is my mantra!! Sometimes my kids just think all I do is rearrange all day. They aren't far from wrong!! xo Good luck with the move!!


I love it when you sweet talk me! It makes my day!
And please make sure you leave an email address so we can keep the convo going.
