When you flip open most magazines, you see homes that are gorgeous. And wildly unachievable. And that bugs me. Because who can afford to do what most glossies consider pretty? But here on SMP Living, it's different. You get that same magazine-worthy home though instead of Picasso's and $1500 bar stools, you get ideas for your home where products come from regular ole home stores, styled to look impeccable. Such is the case with Elizabeth Bear - interior designer and stylist to some pretty awesome brands - who is opening up the doors to her light-filled home. So much more on her insta too!
From Elizabeth...I am drawn to high ceilings, large windows without treatments and lots of glass. Love clean simple lines. It’s so important to have natural light in our home. I love the canvas of my home to be neutral tones...using whites and grays. Textures, natural elements and greenery are also important pieces in completing my style. Color is incorporated through artwork and accessories using variations of my favorite blue.

Decorating with art has always been done through pieces that I/we have had a personal connection or friends who are artists, places we have visited and discovered galleries. It’s part of my design and style values to collect original art.

We also wanted light natural colored hardwood floors and painted the walls the same light color throughout to give a continuous modern look, which works very well with an open floor plan. This cohesive bright style makes me feel at peace, happy and settled.

I am not a trend follower unless I really love the item. Many things circle back around so if I am constantly chasing the latest “it” thing my home never feels at peace. My advice is to follow your heart not the trends!
