When I am preparing to decorate a space I always envision the walls first. There are a lot of ways to inject personality into a room. You can use colorful artwork, patterned drapery, flowers and throws. The possibilities are endless. But what about the walls? They are not just dividers between rooms or the supports to hold your house up, they are blank canvases just waiting to be introduced to some creativity and personality.
Does your spouse or significant other have a different home decorating style than you? Do you find it hard to decorate with a design the both of you will love? Maybe you’re just moving in together and need to figure out what to keep, what to get rid of without offending each other or don’t have a lot of money and need to make whatever you have work. I’ve heard the horror stories of him not wanting to let go of that dreadful futon from his college dorm days. You know the one. The one that’s been vomited on after the parties, the one that smells like funky corn chips from all the sweaty socks. Yeah that one! Some still have the corn chip crumbs in them.
Finding your individual style in this world is so important. It is essential for your individuality and sometimes your sanity. If you are anything like me, most days are filled with activities that are designed(no pun intended) to service something or someone else. Being a mom usually has me doing hair, helping with homework, cooking dinner and sometimes I am a mannequin stand-in for my youngest daughter’s pretend YouTube videos. Add my 9-5 to that and I’m exhausted.
Spring is here! Well a girl can dream can’t she? Recently the weather has been agreeing with me so I got excited and figured I’d tell you about decorating for Easter. Now that you have done your spring cleaning and gotten organized with my last two articles. You can see them here. Are You Spring Ready? and Clearing The Clutter. The coming of spring obviously means warmer weather but it also can bring new beginnings. The snow and ice begin to melt and the ground begins to soften up eagerly awaiting the arrival of new blossoms.
Having a clean and well organized home is key to any interior design. Sometimes you don’t need new paint, or new drapery but all you need is to get organized. Some days my family and I are running from one activity to the next and haven’t had the time nor the energy to straighten up before we leave.
We don’t even notice until we get back home that we’ve left shoes, toys, and various other items strewn about. On those rare occasions when we get to slow down for an extended period of time to notice, it usually ignites a fire in me that will have me in a frenzy until it gets back to the peaceful home that I once remembered. Getting organized and staying organized is key to a well-balanced home. Let’s look at a few ways to get organized.
Right now we are in winter and depending on where you live, you are in the middle of winter storm after winter storm. Winter can be a time of relaxation, slowing down and just catching your breath for a moment. I especially love the cold snowy days that allow me to curl up on my comfy sofa with a delicious bowl of chili. There aren’t any meetings to conduct, no deadlines to meet and no errands to run. This time of year has less sunlight and if you are anything like me eventually all the dark and cold days can bring on the winter blues.
