Designer's Secret: How to Create a Home of Luxury
Hi, I’m Andrea. I’m an interior designer, owner of Andrea Bruley, Inc., wife, and mom to two adorable little boys, and my passion in life is to help people bring a touch of luxury into their lives. I’m fortunate to live, work and play in beautiful Southern California and have been designing homes throughout the region for over a decade.
If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that everyone wants to live in a beautiful home, whether it be contemporary, traditional, or everything in between. BUT, many people are intimidated by designing their own homes. And I get it. There are sooooo many decisions that need to be made. What kind of sink should I have in my kitchen? Can I put a rug on top of carpet? Is gray paint everywhere still a thing? There’s a lot to think about, and it can be incredibly overwhelming.
My goal is to share some tricks of the trade to help you bring elements of luxury into your lives and homes. I’ll offer décor and design tips and tricks, and also share some of my favorite ways to entertain at home, because if you’re going to have a gorgeous home, why not have your friends over to enjoy it with?
When it comes to design, my mantra is "no matter your lifestyle or budget, you can make your home feel like a luxurious retreat." I can attest to this because I have two rambunctious (but adorable) young boys and a dog, and I’ve learned many tricks that allow me to have a beautifully elegant home that’s still kid/pet friendly, and I’m going to show you how, too.
I’m thrilled to go on this journey with you. Do you have any questions or tips you want to share? Please comment below.
