A CONVERSATION ON FUNCTION, DESIGN, AND DECOR WITH GRACE VAN

Here at Apotheke we have so much appreciation for thoughtful interior design. From huge firms with top tier professionals to hard working amateurs and at-home DIYers, if they share our spirit of clean, simple living then we want to hear from them!

Today we've reached out to Grace van Meuer of Collected Eclectic to pick her brain on all things design & home. She shared her inspirations, advice, and expert tips on making a space your own. 

WISE WORDS FROM GRACE

A CONVERSATION ON FUNCTION, DESIGN, AND DECOR WITH GRACE VAN

Always think of the way you want a space to function first.

"In every space, the function is the most important thing to consider. Before making any big decisions, I like to try to figure out how we use a space and what we can do to improve it."

Don’t design around something you don’t love.

"When we first started decorating our home, we centered everything around a green sofa that just wasn’t right for the space. It lead us to choosing more questionable things before we finally said goodbye to our sofa and got on the right track to truly loving everything in our home."

You don’t have to change out decor to get a new vibe in a room.

"Fragrance, music, and ambient lighting will completely change the mood. Light a candle and turn on a lamp for a romantic and relaxing evening, or open the blinds and crank up the upbeat music for a productive morning."
