Kristins home is filled to the brim with colors, patterns and all around cozy vibes. We love how she has incorporated FMF style into her space, and couldn't wait to share it with you too! 

Name: Kristin 

How would you describe your style? Fearless bohemian maximalist girl meets clean-cut modern mid century guy.

Tell us a little about yourself: I was born and raised in California and I really embrace the casual laid-back lifestyle here.  I started decorating when I was a kid. I was always moving my bedroom furniture around and asking my parents for new paint or wallpaper in my room. My mom was always re-decorating and she inspired me to do the same. I was super excited when my husband and I bought our first home. We spent the last 14 years remodeling and redecorating it so now I've become a self taught decorator and stylist. I'm a healer by day, and recently started a home staging business with my husband. I really can't help but re-style my home every week, which is why we started our staging business!  

What inspired you when designing your home? I'm constantly redesigning my home so the inspiration is ongoing. Last year I decided to go for it and experiment with color, pattern, and texture with abandon. I love the colors of nature -blues, greens, and only recently I discovered my feminine side and love of pink!  Right now I'm obsessed with all the beautiful textiles from Morocco!  I would love to take a trip there someday. 

What do you love about your FMF pieces? Oh, they have transformed my house!! Jen has an eye for the best boho decor, so I knew I couldn't go wrong with any of her pieces! They all have the feeling of being a showstopper and just one of her rugs can make you walk in a go WOW!! And don't even get me started on her poufs and pillows!! They're amazing quality and look stunning anywhere I put them!

Where do you get your inspiration? I'm inspired by the feeling of relaxation, love, happiness, and joy.  I love the beauty of nature and all of the wonderful colors that surround us. The world is full of life and nature provides us so much beauty!  I love being outside and I want to be surrounded by plants and animals indoors and out. 

What is a home design tip or trick you have learned recently? There really are no rules. I have covered my TV with a gorgeous piece of textile art, and used a stock tank as an outdoor fountain!  I've even thrown a giant pillow cover over the back of a chair! Anything goes and the only limit is your own creativity. If you like it and it makes you happy then you really don't need to use any tricks. Although I've always been a huge fan of using lighting in unusual ways to create special moments all over a room. 

Do you feel that you would be a secret member of the FMF sales anonymous group? Haha!!  I don't think it's a secret I'm a member!! 

Why did you choose these FMF pieces? I knew when I first saw them they were extra special. I literally gasp and get emotional at the sight of her rugs!  Jen selects handmade pieces that carry the emotional energy of the person who made them and you can feel that energy in your home. Each piece is unique and has a story and makes your home feel vibrant and alive!

What would be your dream FMF product? A gorgeous rug Jen has selected for me with hardware attached and ready to hang on the wall!! Or the ceiling!!

Who inspires you? Well, Jen of course- no really!!!  When I first saw her Instagram account I was so stunned! She has the creative eye for what's cool and knows how to put it all together effortlessly. Also, I find constant inspiration by so many people on Instagram!  It's a wonderful supportive community overflowing with love and creativity. I like scrolling through the posts and stories to see the new and exciting  ideas out there.
