Chatting With the west elm WInner

As promised, we're going to take some time in the next few weeks to chat with Kavi484, who has won the west elm sweepstakes, worth $5,000 in west elm merchandise. And check back, because we'll soon be posting the west elm–after photos!

Here's our next question for Kavi484:

CasaSugar: Have you been inspired by any friends or relatives who have a great decorating style?

To see Kavi484's answer, just

Kavi484: Absolutely. I have an aunt in India who is an architect, but has some great ideas about home décor as well. I have been very inspired by her home, which is full of the earthy colors and textures I’ve been talking about. In fact, many of the items I’ve collected to use in my own future home have come from shopping trips with her. Shopping for home accessories in India is like a treasure trove for me — it’s always a struggle not to buy more than I can carry home! The way that my aunt mixes colors and arranges her rooms has definitely shown me that the last thing I’d ever want my home to be is boring! I like décor that stimulates my senses, and I think I got that from her.
