Hello sweet friends! If you are stopping by from The Creativity Exchange - thank you so much for coming by! I am Laura and this is the place where I share ideas and projects for making your home a true reflection of you and your family. I am so excited to be part of this series - "How to Decorate" organized by the lovely Beth of Home Stories A to Z. Wwe are having a little fun and a group of bloggers have come together to share 25 sets of ideas and tips on "how to decorate". When Beth asked me to join, I decided right off I wanted to share my five favorite ways to personalize your home. So, I have to ask. Does anyone remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe slowly buys everything from the showroom floor of Pottery Barn and tries to convince Rachael that it is all vintage? Then later, they are standing in front of the window of the store and it looks exactly like their apartment. While Pottery Barn does a better job than most of selling unique items, and sometimes, they even do sell vintage items, no one wants their home to look just like a furniture store showroom. I believe our homes should be a reflection of ourselves and our families and not be a cookie cutter execution of someone else's style. Sometimes, however, it can be hard to figure out exactly how to do that. It actually can be easier than you think. But the biggest tip - it doesn't have to be done overnight. Creating a home is a process and it is okay to make changes, tweaks and adjustments along the way. Here are five ways to help you on your way.
