How To Redecorate Your Home Like A Style Blogger

Last week I had the pleasure of touring style blogger Brooklyn Blonde aka Helena Glazer’s newly decorated brownstone. Because she has such immaculate personal style, my expectations for her home were pretty high–but I was still blown away by how incredibly tasteful and inspiring and cozy her space was when I saw it in the flesh. With styling help from Homepolish designer Matthew Cane, Helena did (almost) the entire makeover at HomeGoods. Can you believe it? Here are Helena’s tips for making your home uniquely yours, room by room:

LIVING ROOM BEFORE: 

AND AFTER:

“A new tribal rug (from HomeGoods!) anchored this space and made it feel like my style. The trendy pattern livened up the area, but was still neutral enough to blend with the other white pieces, and the gold and marble side tables look so luxe and expensive, despite their affordable price tag ($99!).”

DINING ROOM BEFORE: 

..AND AFTER: 

“This farm table is also one of my favorite pieces – it was custom made for us using scaffolding from a New York City building. We are born and bred New Yorkers so love adding these ties to our roots in. This was definitely somewhere where we ‘splurged’ in our home, so it’s great to find such quality, yet affordable dishware from HomeGoods to even it out.”

NURSERY BEFORE:

… AND AFTER: 

“When it comes to a baby’s room, I always make sure to include both open storage and closed storage. These hanging baskets are perfect to display books and cute stuffed animals, but then store away the bigger, bolder-looking toys in these oversized trunks. It keeps the room looking clean and sleek – and also helps that Helena won’t be tripping over toys all the time!”

MASTER BEFORE: 

… AND AFTER:


“Standing mirrors add drama and dimension to any room. By propping up these two huge mirrors behind her nightstands, we opened up the whole room and gave it a light, airy feel.”
