Chelsea is a lover of all things made.  Whether it’s designing a logo or website, or creating a piece of furniture with her husband, it’s clear she loves the process of telling her story through design.  So much so, that she helps others do the same.  She launched her company Go Forth Creative back in 2012, offering creative direction to other businesses.

Judging by what she did with her home, I could safely trust her with my life.

In the article, she mentions her love of Craigs list bargain hunting and shares tips on working from home.  I’m pretty sure we could be bff’s.

I love the little accents of Texas throughout her home.

design obsession: southwestern modern

Aztec prints, geometric patterns,  bold colors, natural materials, animal inspirations are all part of the Southwestern design style.  Versatile, this look can mesh with a traditional ranch or modern abode.   

While this look seems like a new design trend,  it actually dates back hundreds of years.  The style tells a story of those who inhabited the southwest region of our country in the 18th & 19th centuries.   It’s a mix of Native American & Spanish influences.  While it’s probably the most popular in states like Arizona and New Mexico, the style is sweeping the country one home at a time. 



Keeping this look simple and clean gives it the sophistication for today’s modern world. 




Love this look!!
