Dressing Yourself and Dressing Your Home



Do you ever find that decorating and your personal clothing style start to seem alike.  I stopped myself today in a store from buying shirt that was the same pattern as the runner on my coffee table.  I thought that might be going a little too far.    The truth is though that they didn’t have my size and I probably would have bought it if they did.  I just love that pattern so much.



I swear if I could find a way to wear galvanized metal I probably would.

But putting aside weird plaid tendencies and metal wearing, I am finding some major similarities with how I dress myself and how I dress my home.

I stick with the basics season after season, like my favorite jeans.   I tend to shop for fun tops and get distracted with trends, but make my way back to comfortable fitted v-necks and denim shirts.

In my home, I have the same sofa and chair, but I change out the pillows.  I love to go a little fun sometimes, but always make my way back to traditional patterns.




Shoes are like rugs.  I tend to run them into the ground.  In the case of our family room, our rug is shot as a result of sun fading and puppy chewing.  I am holding off until I am absolutely sure sweet Hannah is read for the responsibility of a new rug.  I keep my shoes out of her reach at all times.




More than anything, I want our home to be comfortable and welcoming.   That is also how I want to put myself out into the world.  I want to be welcoming in my heart and how I interact with people.




Just don’t judge me if I match my curtains one day.

Thanks so much for reading.

  1. Are you sure you aren’t my child? I had a sofa in that pattern for 40 years (re-upholstered once). Finally, got the white IKEA Ektorp. I am still unable to part with my navy braided rug which is still in very good shape after 45 years. I have been falling in love with the galvanized metal and chalkboard for the last few years.

    I could never be a blogger because if I really like/love something, I could never change it (never mind the fact that I’m more of a technical writer).

    Oh, yes. I’ve got my favorite pants (LLBean) and tops (Chicos) and colors.

  2. I don’t think I have ever noticed that u framed canvas on the picket fence. What a very beautiful idea! And you are very sweet and welcoming.
    P S. I really, really like your new IRL. I don’t know why seeing Finding Home Farms makes me smile.
