The Wrubel's Style Story

You know I love getting a sneak peek into other people's homes, especially those who express their unique personalities with style. Well, I've found the perfect website in which to indulge myself. Our Style Stories is a series of fabulous stories written by interior designer and photographer, Hilary Walker. Like me, Hilary is inspired by the way other creatives decorate their homes, and this following story truly inspired me.

This is the house of Lucy, Steve and Stella Wrubel - a cooler family it will be hard to find! Lucy is a hip DJ, and Steve is a world travelled photographer. Together they have shared many adventures and their free-spiritedness is evident in their Dallas, Texas home where they live with their daughter, Stella.

The Wrubels embrace bold colours, and their home is filled with amazing furniture and art, with a healthy dose of quirkiness thrown in. A photo Steve took of a crowd at an Italian soccer match has been blown up as custom wallpaper for the stairwell wall. That is so cool!

Like mother, like daughter... Stella also has a love of bright colour, and pretty things.

And the fun isn't just contained on the inside... Dream catchers and colourful skulls happily co-exist outside the window, and beautiful ribbon hangings adorn the trees. I really love the vibrancy and 'joie de vivre' of this home. If you do too, make sure you pop over to Hilary's website to see and read more about it.
