Hi there! I’m Shavonda! Welcome to SG Style… where small spaces, boho vibes, and ALL THE THINGS get a lot of love!
In the summer of 2014 my family and I ditched our cookie cutter builder grade larger house in lieu of a little old bungalow half its size. Thus began our journey into downsized life. Every day is a lesson in adjustment, living intentionally, and being happy with less space. This blog serves as the perfect outlet for me to not only share our story, but also to share my passion for design as well as inspiring ideas for living large in small spaces……with a healthy dose of fashion, creative living, amazing products, and all the other things thrown in for good measure!
I lived a pretty nomadic life growing up and being exposed to so many different places had a major influence on both my approach to design and my personal style. I’m a self-proclaimed maximalist and I love bold boho eclectic, globally inspired interiors. I have a major weakness for moody spaces, handcrafted global goods & textiles, luxury handbags and alllllll the shoes!
My design philosophy? Just because you live small, it doesn’t mean you can’t have big style! I believe great design is achieved when we let go of the rules, and shift focus to creating spaces that make us feel amazing…no matter how we think things should be, what we feel is more popular, or how small the footprint. Bottom line: Life is too short to live in a space that doesn’t make your heart smile. If your space doesn’t do this you need to say #byefelicia… reevaluate…and start over.
My design style? Boho Eclectic…. with a bit of bold, a dash of daring, and a distinct global influence. In my world more is more and less is a bore! I love a mix of old and new, high-end and budget-savvy, and prefer spaces that are layered to the max. I believe every space needs a bit of the unexpected and a little something black……well, sometimes A LOT of black! I also believe in supporting artists, makers, and girl bosses by shopping small businesses whenever possible.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you love it here. Now lets dive into creating the most beautiful life ever!
