Everyone loves a home tour! I just can’t pass even one up! Come see StoneGable dressed up for Spring!
I’m sure you are the perfect guest! But this post is a reminder and has some good tips too!
I think one of the hardest things to decorate and decorate well are shelves. Open shelves, shelves in hutches or cabinets and even bookshelves. I’m breaking it down and making it easy. I’ve even included some simple to follow diagrams! Let’s create beautifully arranged shelves!
I think one of the biggest things that hold may home decorating enthusiasts back from creating the home they really want is… fear! Let’s talk about why I am not afraid to make a decorating mistake and why you shouldn’t be either!
Want some common sense decorating advice. I’ve done the homework for you and compiled 10 tips given by interior decorators. Here’s what they have to say to you about decorating your home!
I have a confession to make. I am not obsessed with cleaning my home or organizing it. I do however work and live better in and love a clean and organized home. So, I’m all about doing home chores in the most efficient way. If you have a place in your home to declutter, use this technique!!!! It really works!
Our home turned 20 this past year! My blog is named after our home. StoneGable, the home, has such a rich and interesting history, I thought you might like to read about it. And I’m showing images of the outside of our home that have not been seen before.
I think this post is one of my very favorites. It’s a heart to heart with you, my wonderful amazing readers, about our homes and the illusion of perfection! The Perfectly Imperfect Home is part of my weekly series PRACTICALLY SPEAKING where I try to tackle home decor and decorating in practical ways. Sorta like therapy for home decorating!
Another Practically Speaking post about what our homes can say about us. Are you listening to your home? We also talk about being “mess-blind”! YIKES!!!
I was a first grade teacher and when a little one came to me in tears I would always say… “Don’t cry, sweet one! There isn’t anything we can’t fix in first grade!” So true. Don’t you wish it was that easy when it came to decorating? Fixing decor mistakes may end up taking more time and more sweat equity and maybe even a little more money but I’m here to tell you… “Don’t cry, sweet one! We can fix that!” And maybe this post will help you avoid a big mistake!
Decorative orbs are so on-trend right now and you can purchase them for a pretty hefty price. OR… you can make them yourself. These fun home decorations are so so easy to make! Give them a try!
Oh goodness…I just thought of one more I’d like to share. I know! But it is one of my personal favorites…
Can you be believe this pretty trio of mirrors started out as cheap plastic ceiling medallions? You know, the kind that you glue to your ceiling and hang a chandelier through? That’s right! Such an easy and inexpensive project with an expensive look!
That’s my top decorating post for 2016. I hope they inspire you and give you lots and lots of ideas and practical tips for decorating you home!
I’d love to hear your best home decor tip. Please share it with us in the comments. Thanks so much!!!
