Kristina Bing is one of those cool humans who has enviable style and you just want to be friends with. Her home and amazing sense of humour got our attention on Instagram a few months back and we fell in love. Light, bright, playful and authentic - all the things that we adore in a person and a space.
Kristina has a knack for mixing and matching print and colour perfectly, this is demonstrated throughout her delicious home and in her fab style. With a role in e-commerce at cult home decor company, The Jungalow theres no wonder she's the pattern queen!
Kristina took the time to tell (and show!) us her beautiful home in Los Angeles, California, share how she got to where she is today and what inspires her.
Read on to see why Mosey Loves Kristina!

I’m in love with your humour through social media, that’s how I started following you in the first place! You felt very honest and genuine and reminded me of how my sister and I laugh and joke around. What’s your relationship with social media? Do you have any advice for navigating the world of social media?
I have always had the approach that I just want to keep it real and show my personality as it is which is wild and loud lol! I never take myself too seriously and it’s nice to highlight the beautiful moments in your life with your audience mixed in with some hilarious memes because why not!?

Living room for sure, I invested in nice furniture and decor for the first time and it’s really paid off, we spend most of our time in this room.

My Holt sofa from Joybird is the most comfortable thing ever and I love that my boo and I can lay flat out on it at the same time and still have extra room!
What are the specific things you look for when you are purchasing pieces for your home?
I always look for things that make me feel something and try to envision if I will love the piece forever, if I can’t stop thinking about it, it’s a definite must have.
And lastly, what is your favourite piece from our Mosey Me range & why?
I’ve been lusting after Mosey bedding for YEARS and the abstract bedding is next level especially with quality and details - the covered buttons are chef's kiss!
