The designer's own home, pictured in these photos (which originally appeared in Budget Decorating), begins with a contrasting palette of lights and darks. Major prints then pop up everywhere, adding interest and energy throughout.
Above, the dining room elegantly employs CB2's Morocco rug - I noticed it because I'm considering the rug for our family room with the walls repainted a gray-blue, similar to the color shown here!
Throughout her home, the designer combined reworked vintage pieces and bargain fabric remnants with a few high-end investment pieces.
A "lifestyle expert", Valencich's skills extend to cooking and entertaining - she hosts shows on HGTV and has appeared on numerous other shows, including Oprah. I can't believe I've never seen her work before, but since her style is so on trend at the moment, I'm sure I will spot her everywhere from now on!
