Willow is the ultra loveable mastermind behind Instagram account @basicblackandwhite. Willow’s feed is full of the most divine monochrome inspiration all styled in her very own home!
How would you describe your style?
My style is Scandi-inspired, monochrome, minimalistic with very clean lines throughout my home. I believe that less is ALWAYS more when styling my home.
Where do you look to for your inspiration?
I am a mom of three littles, so although I’d love to venture out to local shops, it’s nearly impossible (I have tried!) We are building our dream home soon, so I am always looking to be inspired by interior design and style. My favorite blogs are The Design Chaser, Stylizimoblog and Decordots. I’m also a Pinterest and Instagram fanatic. I love finding new accounts/pages and gleaning ideas off of them, but when I style, I always make it my own. When my followers send me a note saying they used one of my pics for style inspiration, it encourages me to keep going. I love to inspire and be inspired by so many talented people out there.
What are your top three possessions in your home?
My top three possessions are my white Hemishere side table (you’ll see it in 90% of my pictures)! My Eames rocking chair and my dark-stone jute area rug. All of them photograph beautifully and they are so well-made.
What is your next must-have purchase for your home?
My next purchase is the HAY Design loop stand dining table. I absolutely love the geometric lines. The only problem is is that I can’t decide between black or white. Maybe I need both?! 😁
We know you love your Turkish Towels! What are your top tips for styling them?
I was blown away when I received my Turkish towels. I wasn’t expecting them to be such a generous size…and on top of that, they are soft and beautifully made. They are one of those things that can be styled in so many ways. They are such a versatile piece in any home, with any style aesthetic. I’ve used them as tea towels on my table, as throw blankets on my couch and as a light summer blanket for my 1.5 year old daughter. My whole family loves them. They’ll always be styled in my home. I’m a big fan!
“When I’m not blogging I’m…..”
I am on Instagram A LOT. The friendships I’ve made have been such a huge blessing to me. I’m very grateful. When I’m not instagramming, I’m hanging with my kids outdoors. We live in a beautiful state and the summers are divine and very HOT! We are very active and love to swim and ski. I’m also a marathon runner, so I’m training outside, quite a bit!
Favourite places to hangout?
The District Coffeehouse, Java Hyde Park, Goldy’s Corner, Goodys Soda Fountain and Candy Store, Boise Frye Company, Idaho Running Company, H&M.
