Babe Behind the Blog: Tobe from Because It's Awsome

name // tobe

how would you define your interior design style?

balanced. i am drawn to almost all styles, colorways, eras and design philosophies. a little bit feminine, a little bit masculine. spaces rich with pieces that have stories to tell. glamorous, rustic and antiquated all at once. i've always been this way. it freaks a lot of people out, but my inspiration seems to come together just fine in the end. (at least, i hope so anyway!)

what 3 things can you not live without?

wine, red wine, dry red wine

what are 3 things people don't know about you?

i'm quazi gangster,
i was a certified band geek in middle school (first chair clarinet 3 years solid),
i have to read maps upside down

your most treasured possession?
