Meet the stunning Liz of Pure Joy Home! She is as bright as she is beautiful. We love her simple coastal style, and you’ll notice right away we feel a strong connection to her as she counts pineapples and rosé amongst her favorite things. A girl after our own hearts. Let’s learn more about this joyful blogger.
EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?
LJ: You can usually find me in light colors, pretty florals and flowy forms, and in my home everything is very light and bright with pops of color in the art and accessories.
EMc: What is your definition of signature style?
LJ: My definition of signature style is the style that represents who YOU are. So, for me, it’s that light and airy, beauty style that is reflected in my wardrobe and how I decorate my home. i.e. the pineapple wallpaper I just put up in Grace’s room (insert pineapple emoji). I hope my “signature style” makes people smile and happy
EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
LJ: Joyful, except when my 4 year old asks me when I’m in a bad mood! But, most people do say that about me, I like to make those around me feel good and I hope I rub some positivity and kindness off on them in that way.
Dreamer. I’m a dreamer for sure, I always have been. I dream all the time about how I want things to be or where I want my family to be. My current dream is for us to pack up and leave for a year. I want to go to an island like Maui and live in a tiny beach house where nothing matters but catching waves and eating shaved ice.
Doer. I’m a doer, when I dream it, I make it happen with a whole lot of hustle. You better believe we’ll be spending that year on the beach soon! And hey, I did dream up my blog one day while sitting at my boring corporate job… and look!
EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.
I have this big Hermes scarf hanging above my desk in my office. It’s so beautiful and such a statement piece. It was given to me by my late friend who believed in me, and it represents the art of fashion, I love it.
My straw hat collection. I LOVE my straw hats and I’m definitely a hoarder of them. They remind me of the beach and I love to wear them, and see them hanging all over our walls.
My beach cruiser. again, take me to the beach someone PLEASE! Brian, my husband, gave me this adorable aqua beach cruiser and it’s my favorite toy!
EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
LZ: Follow your heart and wear what speaks to you. I was in Anthropologie the other day and this cute little embroidered top was literally screaming at me from across the room. I couldn’t see anything else but that one top, so I tried it on and bought it. Wear what makes you happy
