As a style and home decor expert, people often ask me what my favorite room is — and when it comes to my house, there's no question.
I recently bought my first home, and Purist magazine stopped by Southampton, New York for a visit. It's my dream home and every brick and piece of furniture represents years of hard work.
My favorite space is the one that expresses the most fun, exciting part of my personality. Usually, I prefer all-white everything with minimal decoration and furniture. But I have one room where I really went for it.
I created what I like to call my "jungle room" to be a place to chill and relax. Many elements included are pieces that I've seen in other places over the years, and thought to myself, "When I buy my first home I will definitely get THAT!" With a mix of high and low pieces, I created a space that I absolutely love. Take a look below to learn how you can get a similar look.
