Decorating The Home You Love

“Dime dimeebook-copyDecorating” new edition should be ready for release in November.

Decorating your home should be one of the most enjoyable things you do. Our homes reflect who we are and how we want to live our lives. I like to surround myself with the colors I like. My home is my castle and I am the queen and it is the one place that things will be to my liking. It is my private place. We had been planning on building a house for about 10 years and I bought a new book or magazine every few days. I had a whole list of ideas and books with lots of marked pages. And I tried to use them all.It took us 2 years to build and by the time the house was done there was not must left for interior decorating. Well being determined like I am I got my books out and started researching what I could do with stuff I already had and how I could make good use of yard sale items. It surprises me the number of things we can do with picture frames. I started buying all the frames I could find at yard sales. With some when the pictures weren’t to my liking I just went to the local craft store and found some beautiful prints for 4 or 5 dollars. I added a nice mat and I now have some lovely pictures that I get compliments on all the time. In one room I just hung the bare frames. I used all shapes and different finishes. There does not have to be a pattern to this. After you get them hung stand back and look at them. Now imagine what they can say to you. I went and found some small wooden letters and painted them black. I now added them to my wall in and around my frames and the effect was stunning.

Some examples of the words I used were imagine, love, learn, home, and etc…The point is that they don’t have to make a sentence, they only need to reflect what you want them to say . The idea can be strictly yours. In my master bedroom closet I have the words “Put your big girl panties on and deal with it” That is the first thing I see when I go to the closet to get my cloths and it makes me smile every time I see it. More decorating tips will follow in coming posts.

    I completely agree using the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that suggestions are spreading so quickly.
