Let me start this blog post with Sara Toufali‘s own words: I can’t even! There are many people who inspire me out there, but Sara has a special place in my inspiration loving heart. Her home in an incessant source of inspiration. Recently I told her that I could move into her apartment in an instant and feel right at home. You will see why in this blog post! But Sara inspires me beyond her home and interior styling skills. Her wit, her charms, and her positive personality shine through her Instagram stories in particular. If you follow her, you might hear her squeak from time to time: I can’t even!!!
Sara is a LA based lifestyle blogger. Her world is a captivating universe of botanicals, colours, sunshine, smiles – all beautifully immortalized on her blog Black & Blooms as well as on her Instagram account. Given my love for boho interiors, I have to admit that her home is the manifestation of a dream home to me. I love how Sara mixes patterns, colours, and textures in her home. Moreover I love the lived-in vibe and the coziness that seem to ooze out of her Instagram feed. Trust me, you will love it too!
Now things get even better: Sara is not only super cute but she also has a very handsome boyfriend. As much as I enjoy seeing them together, what I love most are the fun Instagram stories they create. It gives me a constant giggle to see her boyfriend rolling his eyes when Sara gets back home with half a dozen new plants. Botanicals are yet another highlight in her home. I love Sara’s beautiful and lush urban jungle and I could not be happier that our Urban Jungle book feel right at home at Sara’s. On top of it all: Sara loves vinyls as much as I do. She loves crystals as much as I do. Oh my, what can I say – this lady is darn inspiring!
In my blog series ‘People who inspire me’ I really aim to share wonderful, positive, and inspiring people with you. And I mean it. Even though I have not met Sara in person yet, it feels like she’s a good friend. After all when you discover many similarities you create an instant bond with people – even through social media. So I invite you to have a look and follow Sara too. You will be in for a visual treat, trust me! Find Sara on Instagram and her blog. Enjoy!
