I assume if you are reading my blog it is at least partially because you are looking for some decorating ideas. But do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the “inspiration” and ideas? Mantel-Decorating-Ideas I know I do. I see something I love – but then I realize it wouldn’t really work in my home. But then, I find something else new and I figure out that it would be a nice change and a new way to stay true to my own style. Sometimes we need to shake things up. Endust-Telling-Your-Story-in-Your-Home I love to bring out brighter and happier colors for the spring. Or warm up and settle in for the fall. And oh how I love to decorate for the holidays. But no matter what we do in decorating – whether it be for the seasons, for the holidays or if we see our style evolving – it should still be a reflection of ourselves and families. Coffe-Table-Rug-Office-rs Our home’s should always tell OUR story and not look like it is out of the pages of a generic catalog. Don’t feel you need to follow rules. Don’t feel you need to do what everyone else is doing. Do what you love. Do what works for your family. Do what works for you.
