Another great and powerful element to consider changing seasonally are drapes and curtains. Have you ever considered this possibility? I have done this for years and it can completely transform a room! There are many great retailers that offer inexpensive options. Check it out and see...ya just might like it!
This is a strong statement! How are pillows powerful you ask? They can add texture, color and pattern to a space. They are also a relatively inexpensive way to change a room. They can be changed easily with the seasons and add a fresh new look. Never underestimate the power of pillows!
Organization does not have to be unattractive. If fact it shouldn't be! With all the many beautiful options available shame on us if it is ugly! Wow, that was a bold statement! Look for beautiful containers and baskets and containerize, containerize, containerize!
Ok, I know that sounds a little dramatic. But you see I dislike Halloween...I mean I HATE it! The ghouls and the skeletons and all the icky things that go along with it. If we could just stick to pumpkins and fall colors and yes pass out candy if you'd like, that would be great! So I decorate for fall and Thanksgiving but not Halloween. What about you? Are you pro or con on the "great Halloween Debate"?
I saw this beautiful door and wall in Waco, Texas and just HAD to snap a pic! The wall, the door and the colors are too gorgeous to just walk past. Do you ever pause to snap a pic of the beautiful things you see? My husband laughs at me because when we travel I take pictures of door and floors that catch my eye. Not the normal travel pics for sure, but I see beauty in many things. How about you?
I love the look and strength of an old piece of furniture. It has character and life experience. Yes, all old pieces once were new and they certainly have a place in our homes. I just want to encourage you to seek out the wisdom, character and strength in furniture and people. Your lives will be richly blessed by both.
Yes, friends it's that time of year again. You know that one time a year we FREAK OUT about hosting family and friends!! Yes, they have ALL been over before...through out the year, but for some reason around the holidays we panic! There are important memories tied to holidays and we don't want to ruin it for others. My friends, we are focused on the WRONG thing. Focus on the love and friendship and not on the décor. Because when all is said and done THAT is what they will remember...how they felt.
P.S. If you still insist on changing things, do yourself and your decorator and trades people a favor and don't wait until the week of Thanksgiving!
I haven't introduced myself in awhile...if ever. How rude! I'm Lynn a wife, mother of 4 amazing kids, grandmother to 9 grandsons and 9 granddaughters, business owner, sister, daughter and friend. Family and home are my passion! Decorating and creativity are in my blood. Mixing the two allows me to help my clients have a space that their family can thrive in. Our environment is SO very critical to how we feel, act and live! I would love to help you LOVE your HOME!
If you follow me you understand my decorating philosophy. If you are new, here it is! Simply put, it is YOUR home it should be YOUR style! What do I mean by that exactly? Keep, use and display those things that mean something to you or serve your family. You can add trendy, inexpensive pieces here and there, but those unique items are what makes your home, yours! It's kind of my thing, my passion if you will and I am currently putting together some videos to help you understand and feel comfortable with this concept. And YES there are those that do not feel comfortable with this...yet! Stay tuned for more information on this!
