“She Designed A Life She Loved”
“As an interior designer, I am a firm believer in surrounding your life with all things beautiful. From the things found within your home, to the clothes you wear, to the things you read - a beautiful surrounding ultimately results in feeling more beautiful and gives you the energy to make you want to conquer the world. Live Stylish Daily was created to captivate you with style, and encourage you to live with style everyday. To me, that starts with your daily surroundings - your home.
I have a passion for designing homes and giving the homeowners a space where they can create memories with their families and loved ones. Our homes are where we feel the safest and where we feel the most like ourselves. Why not make the most out of them and bring our homes to the next level? With this blog, I hope to light a fire in you to live stylish daily, to live bold and glamorous, to live inspired to take on the world, and to live more beautiful.” - Nina Magon
