We did it, we did it! I started a monthly series and I actually was about to see it though the entire year, yay! Welcome to my Feature Friday series. As I’ve now said 12 other times, DAILY, I am inspired by so many creative and talented bloggers, so on the last day of each month I interview one of my favorites in a Feature Friday! This month, I am sharing my sweet friend Jeran a little early so as to not conflict with Christmas.
December 2015 . Feature Friday with Oleander + Palm
Jeran’s blog Oleander + Palm started popping up on my radar sometime in early 2014. I distinctly remember seeing a post about her living room via someone else’s blog… I still remember it. She had just put up triangle decals on one wall and there was a stunning emerald green leather chair with pops of creative emerald green here and there. I was in love… and I think I left a scary stalker comment about loving her home too much (ha). Little did I know I left it on the other person’s blog. I was such a newbie.
Jeran is a modern maker and she loves vintage finds, handmade pieces and global inspiration. Her style is always spot on and I think you will love her, just like I do! Friends, let me introduce you to Oleander + Palm!
I asked Jeran eight simple questions.
(please pin from the original source)
I was born in Canada, but I grew up in Papua New Guinea. We moved there when I was in the 2nd grade and I lived there till I graduated from High School. Now we live in California. Our family has lived overseas a couple times. We’ve lived in Papua New Guinea and Yemen, but California always calls us back.
Hmmmm, that’s tough to define. I would say my style reflects my love of modern shapes, vintage finds and global treasures. I love natural, earthy tones and lots of texture.
I’d probably have to say West Elm. I love their natural fibers, subtle patterns, midcentury shapes and quirky vintage inspired decor pieces.
4. Do you have “go-to” colors? If so, what are they?
Green and Grey! As a red head, I was raised with a love of the color green. Grey is my go-to neutral, it’s in every room of my home. Oh and I’m a huge fan of graphic, bold black and white.
5. Do you always DIY or is buying sometimes better?
For me, it comes down to budget, so I DIY a lot!!! But, I also love to thrift. There’s some really great junk out there and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. I love that DIYing and thrifting gives my home a unique look.
6. What is one of your favorite projects? Please share a little bit about it.
7. Which is your favorite social media platform and why?
INSTAGRAM!!!! I’m such a visual person. I love being able to flip through images. I also love playing with composition and defining my style on this platform.
8. Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
It’s my full-time job. Ha, I don’t have time for hobbies, I’m too busy making things for the blog. It’s a pretty great job to have.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, Jeran! And if you are loving Oleander + Palm like I am, be sure to stop by and send her a hello from me!
