Babe Behind the Blog: Camilla of Effortless Style

"The Babe Behind the Blog"

Camila from Effortless-Style.


HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR INTERIOR DESIGN STYLE? 

Traditional with a twist. I love injecting a room with colors and playful mix of pattern plus a little lucite never hurt anyone.



WHAT 3 THINGS CAN YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?
1. My hubby Jon. We have been together for 12 years and we are both 30. Crazy! The latest addition to our family. My little guy, Hudson.

2. I managed to squeeze 2 items into my other picture. I love an obsession with elephants (the bring good luck) and the color orange.

3. My iphone. I do everything with it. Respond to emails, take product pictures for clients, jot down my to-do lists, use it as my GPS when heading out to client meetings, and on occasion actually use it to make calls. :)


WHAT ARE 3 THINGS PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU

1. I have painted some of the pieces in our etsy shop;
2. I'm addicted to TV shows on ABC family. Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, Switched by Birth, Jane by Design. I watch them all!

{ Get addicted with me. Watch full episodes here.}

3. The nose I have now is not the nose I was born with!

YOUR MOST TREASURED POSSESSION


When I was at market I fell in love with the chair in the image above. I wanted it, needed it, lusted for it badly. Of course it was crazy expensive even with my to the trade pricing. After market a random craigslist search lead me to my dream chair that was on sale for only $199 in a town near by. I quickly grabbed Jon and picked it up and now it resides it my home office.


DIRTY LITTLE SECRET

While I wish my office looked like the image above everyday the sad fact is that it typically looks like this:

Yes, there is an elephant under my desk. What? You don't have one there?

YOUR FAVE ROOM IN YOUR HOME

Has to be my living room. It's full of color and just makes me happy every time I enter it. We spend weekends relaxing here by the fire and now a days it's my favorite spot to feed Hudson during the day.


I WANNA BE A BLANK WHEN I GROW UP?

A couple of years ago I quit my job (I use to work in retail buying) to live out my dream and work in interior design. Ideal goal though would be a home decor shop and for my husband to quit his job so that we could work together.


Thanks Camilla!
