We’re always down to talk design, but with Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday we’re especially excited to delve into the world of fellow modern design blogger, pal, and mum-of-toddler Erin Hiemstra of Apartment 34. Erin has a way of creating contemporary, sophisticated interiors that still feel approachable — and repinning her warm, streamlined images on Pinterest is a regular activity ‘round these parts.
Aesthetics aside, we’re also drawn to Erin’s site and Instagram account for her healthy dose of realness. As we’ve followed along with her down-to-the-studs home renovation these past couple of years, she’s let us in on the final designs in all their updated-Victorian glory while treating us to posts like the “No Makeup Home Tour”, and “Realness Wednesdays” on Instagram Stories.
As you’ll see ahead, Erin’s thoughts on motherhood are equally as inspiring — and honest. Read all about ‘em, snoop the five items she’s coveting for her abode, and learn the approach she just took as she completed her son’s decor transition from nursery into a “big-boy” room. Ooh mama, it’s good.
