Kim From Design Thoughts

Meet Kim from Design Thoughts

Do you have a friend whose home is crazy fabulous, but she seems to magically make it all happen for pennies on the dollar? That’s Kim Salter.

Kim started her blog, Design Thoughts when she was working as an Interior Designer in New York, and a new mom to a her son Liam. Her family has since relocated to Nashville where she’s writing about the woes of personalizing a rental property with the world’s smallest closet.

Oh, What Paint Can Do!

Kim’s taste is spot on, and she makes risky colors like bright chartreuse seem surprisingly easy to work with. Check out the makeover she gave to her entry way niche with just a coat of paint, and her ikea-cabinet-to-bar-cart transformation.

Write Right.

The thing that keeps us coming back to hear what Kim has to say is her quippy, honest writing style. Take a peek through her blog to hear about the day she realized that nap time for Liam was over, really over. Or on a more serious note, journey with Kim to learn to be a more authentic you and search for things that give you joy. She gets it right and shares moments from her life that many young mamas can identify with.
