FREEYA is Where Stuff Goes to Live
Room Refresh - The Nursery!
Rena Lenari of The Jazz Up, shares a few tips for decorating with free and found items.
1. All of your pieces make up a family—the old and the new-to-you. In the nursery, you need a calm space but it is also a joyful space—the rug helped with this. The neutral wood and walls allowed me to use some reds to add life to the quiet space.
You may be looking to make an area of a room feel more alive, or interesting. That can be a great place to bring in found pieces with texture and a story.
At the end of the day, a nicely decorated room shows a pleasant conversation between its objects—a connection where one object will support the other in its form, function, or both. Decorating with that in mind creates a flow that makes sense because it gives us a feeling of harmony.
Spotlight on: Taking Ownership PDX!!
Freeya has partnered with Taking Ownership PDX, an organization in Portland doing really important work within the Black community. Taking Ownership renovates and revives Black-owned homes that have requested help, with an emphasis on enabling Black homeowners to age in place, generate wealth and simultaneously deter predatory investors and realtors to deflect the gentrification process. Part of their hands-on process often involves cleaning out decades of accumulated stuff. Now they have a place other than the dumpster to give items a new life—on Freeya!
