10 Questions: Sisterhood of the World of Bloggers Award

A few weeks ago I was nominated by Cristin, of Simplified Bee, to participate in the Sisterhood of the World of Bloggers Award going around the blogosphere. This means I’ve been asked to answer her 10 questions, then select 10 new bloggers and ask them to answer my 10 questions. Here we go!
1. Winter or Summer?
This California girl moved to Michigan last year, and the Winter was a doozy...so I'm a Summer girl all the way! Trips to beach towns with this cute white pup of ours is the best.

2. What’s your favorite wallpaper pattern?
I love stripes, certain floral patterns, and I saw a pineapple pattern I loved a few weeks ago...so adorable! Serena & Lily also have gorgeous choices

3. What’s the best vacation you’ve taken?
Almost every year I can remember, my family has gone up to Tahoe for the 4th of July. It's warm, we spend the day at the lake on a boat, my grandma makes delicious food, and our dog, Hope, is in pure heaven! Last year my boyfriend was able to join us and it was so fun! One of my other favorite vacations was to Hawaii with my mom and grandma when I was in high school. I just love the beach!

4. If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
Probably Joanna Gaines. She seems so incredibly nice and I'd love to chat about all things design.
5. Name one thing on your bucket list.
I love this question! You will often hear me saying I want to do something and then following it with "bucket list!" A big bucket list item for me is traveling to Europe. I want to see all the gorgeous, inspiring architecture!
6. What’s your favorite room in your house?
I love my living room/kitchen/dining room. It's bright, open and has soft gold and blue hues.

7. If you could pick any designer, living or dead, to decorate your house, who would it be?
I'd love a mix of Rachel Ashwell and Sarah Richardson. Sarah's perfect pattern mixing plus some shabby chic/eclectic touches from Rachel would be lovely.

8. What’s on your nightstand?
Two books (just there to add height!), a picture frame, my L&G lamp, a coaster (I always have a glass of cold water on it when I go to sleep), and sometimes I have a single bloom if I was able to find any at the farmers market that week.

9. Backyard BBQ or formal dinner?
Totally depends on the occasion, but I think an informal backyard bbq would be my choice! Nothing better than a relaxed atmosphere, good food, and family and friends to share it with. However, you can bet you'd find some pretty touches at the bbq :)

10. If you could rewind twenty years and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
Considering I'm only halfway through my twenties, I guess I would tell myself not to cut all my Barbies hair when I was little, because it would have been really fun to have Barbies with hair left to pass down to my future kids. Ha ;) On a more serious note, I'd tell myself to pursue design from the start and not to be discouraged when negative voices told me I wouldn't be able to make a living off it, etc. Hard work, passion, and creative juices really can work together to create your dream job.

Here are the 10 bloggers I am nominating for the award:

10 questions for them to answer (and anyone can play along!)

1. If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
2. Name one thing on your bucket list.
3. What’s your favorite room in your house?
4. Mountains or beach?
5. What are you reading?
6. 3 elements every bookshelf needs.
7. Your favorite design endeavor.
8. Heels or boots?
9. What are two pieces of advice you'd give to your younger self?
