What's Going On with Your Home's Decor?

We've come a long way and in a lot of ways.  I don't want to get you off track, but I have to ask.  Are you playing it too safe with your home decor?  I sat down and thought about it today.  Really thought about it.  About what I want for you. 

What I truly want, from the bottom of my heart, is for your home to look like you.  To look like you on your best day when you are feeling amazing and you float around a room flirting and smiling at everyone.  That's what I want.  I want you to make the connection with your emotional state and the state of your home.  I've been wandering around the web and I know that your hold-up is not the lack of information or inspiration.  The world is abuzz with home improvement tips, ideas and pictures.  There are decorating shows and literally millions of images to flip through on sites like Houzz.com and pintrest.com. 

So my thoughts are (and please correct me if I'm wrong), you are doing other things with your life.  Is it that only people who like decorating care about design blogs and DIY projects?  When do the rest of you decorate?  My friend has undertaken a renovation project, but only because her husband refuses to buy her a new house.  So is there a disconnect?  Do you feel that when things are not great at your current home, that it's time to trade it in for a new one instead of transforming it into the space of your dreams?  The wonderful thing about blogs and magazines is that they show you what you can do with the space that you have.  From how to switch out lamp shades to choosing compelling color palettes, all the information you need is literally at your finger tips.  So what's the hold-up?  Please tell me.  What's going on with your house?


  1. I would love to have a house that looks like me!
    I just don't know where to start. I mean, I know that I am supposed to find one thing that I LOVE (a rug, a piece of art, even a piece of fabric) and go from there, but I try and I get nowhere... I try to make some mood boards and they look horrible! But believe me, I think about it ALL the time! I even have dreams about it.

  2. So, Take me slow. Skip the mood board for now. Where do you get stuck?

    Thanks for this post. There are so many things that I love that it is hard to define it or I have commitment issues. For instance, I have failed to paint my living room because I don't know which color I can live with although, as you've said, I can always re-paint. Are there any interactive designer questionnaires out there that can help define home interior style for a person with commitment issues?

  4. It's me again. I don't know where I get stuck. I guess I never found one thing that I *must* have. I know in my family room I would love a big round hanging chandelier but I would be happy with any of them. And then fabrics and rugs, again, so many that I would be happy with. So I end up doing nothing. I have the room painted and we have couches, but no curtains, no amazing light, no pillows, no lamps, no tables...

  5. send me images of your room. Lets try to figure this out. Do you mind if I bring in different designers to give some input. Check out sarahbaynesinteriordesign.com and Nicole Moss over at Faabinc.com If you like their styles, lets get them on the phone and see if they'll do vision boards for you. I'll do one too and see if we can create a road map for you.

  6. I would love some help! That would be awesome! I will take some pictures tonight.

  7. I sent you an email!
