A Glass of Bovino is home & interior design blog, written and curated by Alisa Bovino. Here, you’ll find a witty and often sarcastic collection of tips and tricks to styling your home, design inspiration, and learnings from personal experiences.
I encourage you to move some pillows aside, have a seat, and relax while I grab you a glass of vino.
Do you prefer red or white?
I’m a northern NJ native where I currently reside with my husband, Angelo, and our cat, Constantina. If you happen to be wondering – yes, we’re Irish. In 2017 we purchased our first house: a generic, 1960’s bi-level and little by little, we’re adding personality and style to our builder-grade home.
As a Jane of all trades, I thrive off of the grit and the glamour of taking something that’s seemingly unattractive, whether it be an entire room or small piece of furniture – and making it beautiful. On a Saturday afternoon you can find me styling, painting, remodeling, or photographing any given room in my house, which is how I truly enjoy spending my free time.
MY OWN PERSONAL AESTHETIC IS EVER-EVOLVING, BUT IS BEST DESCRIBED AS TRADITIONAL GLAMOUR WITH A MODERN TWIST AND A MASCULINE TOUCH. I FOCUS ON CREATING A JUXTAPOSITION OF DARK AND LIGHT, MIXING MODERN WITH VINTAGE AND BLENDING MASCULINE WITH FEMININE.
x As a kid, I had two drastically different personalities; part tomboy and part girly-girl. As I got older that split personality stayed, and the way I style my home is reflective of who I am – feminine yet masculine.
x Celebrity crushes: Tom Hardy in Lawless and John Krasinski in 13 Hours (need to be specific here – not The Office John Krasinksi).
x I come alive in the fall time. I’ve had a significant infatuation with autumn since I was a kid and could go on for paragraphs talking about all the things I love about the season. There are few things I enjoy more than sitting on my porch with a cup of black coffee on a cool autumn morning.
x In November 2017, I married my husband, Angelo. He caught my eye on the first day of college and I thought to myself “lord almighty that is the most handsome man I’ve ever laid eyes on.” After an immense amount of stalking and over 8 years later, he’s now my husband. Dreams do come true. Especially if you stalk your future husband for long enough. Don’t give up.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for stopping by. I encourage you to pour another glass, sit back and relax – because life is enjoyed best with a glass of vino.
