Well - here's the next installment of What! What. What? with Brittany from For the Love of Gold. Brittany is a So. Cal girl with amazing style, a fresh attitude and a youthful heart! I'm a huge fan of her blog and I'm thrilled she taking part in the survey.
I'm Brittany Thomas, the gold loving writer of For the Love of Gold. I have the most charming boyfriend you'll ever meet, who has let me go crazy making our home a beautifully funky haven. I work in the advertising industry, working more hours than I'd like to count but when I finally find a minute to sit and relax, you'll find me obsessing over the amazing world we call the blogosphere.
1. What is your favorite spot in your home and why?
As shabby as it may sound, my favorite spot in my home is the view I get from my couch. From here I can see out into the San Diego harbor, I can muse at all of my funky finds and most importantly, I can catch up with Oprah.
2. What design trend have you always loved?
The design trend that I've obsessed over without fail has been my love for x-benches! I've never met a pair I didn't like. Lucky for me, I found a gorgeous vintage set at my local antique store. $160 for the pair! They've now been recovered and flank each side of our bed. They are my favorite pieces of furniture in our apartment and I feel great knowing that they're a staple I'll have forever.
3. Whats your best bargain purchase for your home?
My most favorite bargain was this piece of abstract art that I bought for just $60! Another vintage find from another local antique store, it has completely set a lively the tone for the rest of the apartment.
4. What's your favorite splurge?
My favorite splurge is a great pair of jeans. There's just nothing quite like a new pair of near-perfect fitting jeans. Don't get me wrong, a good pair of Tory flats sure gives me a pep in my step, but nothing can transform your wardrobe (or your attitude) like a new pair of jeans.
5. What do you do to spruce things up when you feel your home needs a lift?
When my space needs a little lift, I do one of two things. I'll splurge and buy some seasonal flowers from the farmers market. Or, I'll resolve to rearrange and restyle accessories. I always find that a fresh perspective on the styling of your surfaces (whether it be a desk, bookshelf, media console, coffee table, or even your couch!) makes the biggest difference.
6. Whats is something you are craving?
I'm craving a nice, long, relaxing vacation to somewhere tropical and remote.
8. I'm loud and outspoken, but boy am I shy!
9. Glam is Gold baby!
