For all you lovelies with a penchant for interior design, have we got a treat for you today!! Wedding photographers, Matt + Tish, have invited us into their modern + bohemian-inspired abode, and we’ve got to say — it’s Pinterest perfection!! Mid-century modern touches decorate their space, lots of greenery is incorporated, along with fun + funky boho touches! Their eye for design comes as no surprise though, as they also run the creative blog (featuring interior design and more), No Longer Wander.
Matt + Tish share, Welcome to OUR HOME. This space is where our children play and cry. Where friends and family eat and drink. This space is where we want people to feel inspired, safe to truly be themselves, and a place where people feel loved. Until now, our home as been a place that the only people who experience it are those who walk through our front door. We wanted to extend the invitation and welcome you into OUR HOME.
We are really inspired by mixing old and new together. We want our space to inspire but it’s really important to us that people feel comfortable. Our love for interior design continues to grow and we continue to make changes. Remodeling continues to occur and rearranging furniture is a weekly activity! We think that designing your home should be enjoyable! Do not stress and take you time! Find images that inspire you and ask yourself why you love what you see. Break it down, jot down what you love most and then bring in pieces that you both love. Don’t fear to step out of your comfort zone too, that makes it adventurous!!
(we spy an Oh Joy! gold lady planter!!)
Our home has been a mix of buying, selling, buying, and really learning what we love! Pinterest, Instagram, and blogs are all great resources to be inspired by. Looking at architecture, inspiring restaurants, shops, and more are all great ways to be inspired as well! Exploring new cities and towns are again another way to really learn what melts you heart and how you can bring those elements into your space.
We asked Tish + Matt if they incorporated any items from their wedding day into their home. Tish shares, We have been married for 12 years and we’ve made so many changes in our style, that I don’t think any elements from that many years ago survive! The only keeper has been Matt, and I plan to keep him around forever!!
This bar cart + all their gorgeous glasses!!
“If there’s love in a house it’s a palace for sure.” LOVE this print!
We’re completely crushing on how light + airy this dining space is. The end chairs are from West Elm, and the others are finds from Craigslist!
Did you incorporate any items from your travels into your design?
As wedding photographers, we have been privileged with traveling for work and we try to find items from different shops but we always have collected small pieces of driftwood from different beaches we have been able to explore! We continue to find other ways to bring back elements from our adventures into our space as well!! We always bring coffee home from our trips, too!
So much YES!
How fun are these headboards for the kids’ room?!
Mud cloth + funky textiles are the way to bring cozy elements into any space.
What advice do you have for couples currently designing their home?
We have found a majority our furniture, rugs, small details from thrifting! We have found that some are intimidated by thrifting or feel like they can’t find anything worth spending money on! We would encourage you to explore Craigslist, Goodwill, and thrift stores! If you walk in with an open mind, a little determination, patience and a bit of hard work, you will be blown away what you can find! You will be blown away by the amount of money you will save, too!!
Isn’t their humble abode absolutely charming?! We’d definitely like to hang out here. :)
A huge thank you to Matt and Tish for letting us take a peek into your lovely home!
