Home/Room Tour: Ali of A Dash of Details

Hi Everyone,

It's Monday. I know...back to work! However, we still have time for a little home decor inspiration, right? Free Framing is in it's second to last day, so I'm doing my best to inspire each and every one of you to seize the moment! Isn't it time that you finally treat yo'self to that framed print you've been coveting? I think so, and Ali of A Dash of Details is with me today to encourage you to do the same! She recently revealed her newly designed living room, and I'm happy to report a large framed Gray Malin is front and center above her classic yet (appearingly) comfy couch.  

Let's get to know Ali and hear more about her approach to styling this room...

Ali, won't you please introduce yourself?

A little about me, my name is Ali Schilling. I live in Highland Park, Texas with my husband, Patrick and our two goldendoodles, Molly and Zoey. I write the lifestyle blog, A Dash of Details. I was born and raised in Scottsdale, so sunshine is a necessity in my life.  I love nothing more than traveling, experiencing places for the first time, meeting new people and spending time outdoors.

We would love to know more about your decorating style.  What was the approach for this room?

 

What inspired you to choose this particular print?

The Magic Sands Beach print was love at first sight.  We were looking for a piece to become the focal point of the room and the moment I saw the print, it was exactly what we had been looking for. The soft tones in the print were the perfect colors in our mostly neutral living room.

What about the Gray Malin lifestyle brand do you connect with? How does it fit within your own lifestyle?

My husband and I have been long time fans of Gray’s work. His Prada Marfa collection was the first piece of art we bought together back in 2012. Until this day, they are my favorite piece of art in our home. We love how Gray’s pieces can be collected over time and can take us back to some of our favorite places we’ve visited together. Speaking of favorite places, we are already eyeing our fourth Gray Malin piece, the ‘Sconset White Umbrellas.'  We spent the summer on Nantucket this past year and actually met Gray while he was shooting this collection. It will always be a special memory for us!

 

And now, 5 Fast Questions for Ali:

1. Where is your happy place? Nantucket (funny story, this is where we met Gray for the first time)

2. Who are the 4 people, alive or dead, that you'd most want at your dinner party? Robin Williams, Oprah, Gwyneth Paltrow and Anna Wintour.

3. What experience or place to visit is at the TOP of your list? Australia (hopefully we will make this happen soon!)

4. Best vacation taken, so far? My all time favorite trip was to Costa Rica for our honeymoon.  8 days of pure bliss.

5. Favorite coffee table book? Beaches, of course ;)  

Thank you, Ali! It was so fun getting to see your newly revealed Living Room with Magic Sands Beach! It's a brand new release, so it is so cool to see it styled in a room!

I hope you all enjoyed seeing this tour as much as I did! If you're feeing inspired, now is the time to act! FREE FRAMING ends tomorrow....

Cheers,

xx

GM
