Jenny Hall has a passion for fashion—from head to toe kick.
The Greenville blogger’s eponymous Instagram feed and popular Boho Style File blog has drawn devotees from the Upstate and beyond. Her full-time gig is buying and selling for Vann & Liv, a children’s boutique Jenny started online with her sisters in 2010 and that now has two brick and mortar locations.
Then, last year, Jenny and her husband, Ryan, saw that his childhood home in the North Main neighborhood was on the market. “Ryan and I knew we wanted to be in the North Main area because of the charm of the people, and we spend most of our time downtown, so it was the perfect fit,” Jenny says.
They quickly bought it, but the house wasn’t exactly turnkey. The couple spent 14 months renovating before they moved in to “a lot of blank walls and empty space,” she offers. That didn’t mean the fashion maven dove in and selected a different shade of paint for every wall. Rather, she says, walls were kept neutral so that they can become a blank canvas for pops of crisp, clean color all throughout the home, from furnishings to art work.
Last fall, Jenny was one of 20 design bloggers who participated in a One Room Challenge event, which meant she spent six weeks transforming a single space with input from designers and readers. She decided to redesign her dining room, starting with a single inspiration piece: a beaded mint green art deco chandelier, trimmed in glamorous gold accents.
Window treatments were custom made from of Schumacher fabric complementing the mint tones of the light fixture. And the room was tied together with an eclectic mixture of Asian-inspired furniture, luxe textiles, and—of course—an antelope print animal rug.
“I love colors that bring happiness and bold prints for fashion and home!”
