Here at Steinhafels, we love being a part of the blogosphere–sharing various design tips, furniture stories, and other fun and interesting posts with our readers. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoy posting them!
However, we know it’s nice to hear a different voice sometimes. We recently decided to join forces with some local design bloggers–to build new partnerships, and reach new readers who aren’t as familiar with us yet.
Meet “Mommy in Milwaukee” (aka Keila) and “Green With Decor” (aka Meg)! You may already follow their blogs and social media posts. Both women are very active in the Blogosphere, and we are so excited to be working with each of them.
Keila is a mother of three, with a background in the medical field. You may have caught her first blog with us around the holidays. You can read it HERE.
Keila is passionate about fashion for the busy momma, family, raising bilingual babies, and design. Keila came to our Corporate store in December with all three children in tow, and did an awesome job picking a bench and some accessories to go along with her holiday table setting. We can’t wait to work more with Keila, and see those cute kiddos in the store again!
Meg has a background in Public Relations, and started her blog in 2015. She and her husband have already completed two major home renovations–one in Cincinnati, and in Milwaukee, where they live now. Meg loves the color green, and wanted to somehow include “green” in her blog name. Her husband came up with “Green With Decor,” and the rest is history! Meg came to our store just last week and picked up a couple nightstands for her blog, which is fresh off the presses right HERE. We love how Meg tries to incorporate the color green in all of her posts!
We wanted to ask each woman a little bit about why she blogs, and why she’s excited to work with Steinhafels. Here’s what they each had to say:
-Why do you like to blog, and what got you started?
Keila: I enjoy blogging because it’s a fun way to stay creative! I also believe it’s a great way to share our voices for advocacy for support for our local community and beyond. I started blogging after I decided to stay at home with our oldest son, Gabriel. It quickly became a creative outlet for me and I’m so glad I started!
Meg: I’ve always loved writing and interior design, and blogging is the perfect mix of the two. Even as a kid, I enjoyed going to open houses to see the layouts of different spaces and how others decorated. My husband Kalen and I have renovated two houses, and after discovering that others were blogging about their home projects, I decided to start a blog of my own. It’s been such a fun journey so far!
-What’s the number one key to creating posts that readers will care about?
Keila: I think the number one key is to be yourself. I know it’s something we hear about often but I truly believe that being genuine makes a difference.
Meg: I love to share decorating ideas and DIY projects that inspire readers to take on their own project. Whether it’s how to renovate a space to use it better, tips for picking out flooring or furniture pieces, or how to turn an old thrift store frame into something pretty, it’s fun to share ideas that readers can use to transform their home. Pretty pictures of our finished projects are always key, too!
-Why are you excited for this new partnership with Steinhafels?
Keila: I love being able to partner with amazing companies like Steinhafels, that not only carry great products, but are also at the forefront of community outreach.
Meg: I grew up with my parents buying pieces from Steinhafels and have always liked the wide variety of furniture Steinhafels offers. It’s fun for me to partner with brands I believe in and would share with my readers anyway, even more so when the brand is local. I’m excited to partner with Steinhafels to share gorgeous furniture options with my readers and inspire them to keep decorating their homes.
We are so excited to see what Keila and Meg come up with in the months ahead! We will continue to explore practical ways that everyone–young professionals, first-time homeowners, renters, moms, dads, etc. can apply design tips to their own homes.
