2014 | The Pursuit of Style

As I spent this morning reflecting on the past year and getting started on setting goals for 2014, I was reminded of how I was feeling just one year ago today. 2012 had been a tough year and it was hard to think back to that time, but more importantly, the post reminded me how immensely grateful I am for this past year’s successes.

I kicked off 2013 with a career change and joined a residential interior design firm. It was the best professional decision I’ve ever made and completely set the tone for the rest of the year. Funny how doing what you love will do that, right? The Pursuit of Style got a makeover and I sourced some amazing vintage pieces for a design blogger tag sale with One Kings Lane.

I traveled to High Point, Brimfield, Charleston, and New York and came back from each trip feeling inspired (and usually with a heavier suitcase). I accepted the fact that our apartment would never be “ready” (in my perfectionist mind) but was still proud to share it with you with tours on Glitter Guide, Apartment Therapy, and in a print publication here in DC, D/City.

I hosted an event with kate spade new york and InStyle in Charlottesville and took the opportunity to finally visit a store I’ve long admired. I was illustrated, visited a favorite artist’s studio, crossed off most of the items on my 26 for 26 list, and we had a pretty great chat about blogging.

 Who knows what 2014 will bring (hope, peace, and cookies wouldn’t be a bad start), but at the very least I know I’ll be marrying my best friend and that’s not too shabby.

Cheers to 2014!

  1. Finally checked out your apartment–love that blue striped rug and that lucite coffee table is perfection! I still had milk crate decor when I was 26 so you are doing just fine. Happy 2014!

  2. Hi Lindsey, your blog is a great inspiration to me! I love design and I am in a totally different field and living my dream of owning my own business doing what I am good at, but I really need more creativity to be fulfilled then I get from my business. I’m thinking about starting a blog so help my creative juices continue to flow. Thank you for your time blogging and posting and good luck on your wedding!!! Hats off to you for doing what you love. I am going to make a 33 things to do this year for my resolutions.
