So imagine my delight when I stumbled across Jersey Ice Cream Co., a home renovation company with a loving case of nostalgia and a way of bringing out that deep down beauty in the spaces they redesign.
When I first began decorating my little apartment, it was so hard not to just run out and purchase a bunch of things that were pretty to fill up the space.
Yet, I love the way Tara Mangini and Percy Bright, the creators of the company, think of design as a way of finding what the space is in need of (some advice I am slowly, but surely, learning to follow).
"By letting the space speak to us along the way, and really tell us what it needs, we are able to create homes that feel true to themselves-sincere yet functional-the homes they were always meant to be."
By doing so, they come up with an amazing space that comes off as jaw-dropping-ly beautiful, natural, welcoming, and comfortable all at once. Just as they said -- the home it was meant to be.
And on the off chance that you have a home or room that's in dire need of a reno, you can hire them!
I told you they were awesome!
Go check out their blog here if you'd like to see more (and I know you'd like to see more)!
