The Joy of Home Décor---make it your own

The Joy of Home Décor---make it your own

There is no place like home....

Hello and welcome to my very first blog post! This is something that I have been wanting to start for a long time and it feels good to finally just do it. I am really not sure what has held me back…maybe the sound of crickets when I finally hit ‘publish’ or maybe worrying that what I am writing about won’t be of interest or simply won’t be interesting. But here I am, just doing it. Because what is life if we don’t just take that leap?

I want my blog to be a place where you can cozy up with a hot cup of tea and leisurely read about all things home décor and all of those inspiring bits and bobs that come along with making your home your own. I am looking forward to sharing my thoughts on style, colours, all things fabrics and everything in between. I will also be sharing my handmade home decor items, hoping they inspire you as well.

For this my inaugural post, I want to take about your style at home. I am talking about when you walk through your door, you look around, exhale and know that you are home. Don’t mind the mess or clutter, but focus on the parts of your home that reflect you and your family. The colours, the textures, the photos, the linens…all of it. I believe that you don’t need to label or name your style. I encourage you to bring joy into your home, no matter what that looks like. When you look at the objects in your home, I hope that they evoke a fond memory and the memory brings a smile to your face.

Don’t feel the pressure to stick to only one kind of style. Yes beautifully staged homes can be breathtaking. Looking at the never-ending Pinterest worthy photos of all of the incredible and immaculate homes where everything matches and everything is in it’s perfect place, can be overwhelming. But let’s face it, it’s impossible to keep up. You do you. Love that vintage glass candy jar? Get it! Modern and simple pillow covers catching your eye? Grab ‘em! And hang that velvet Elvis art piece already! Life is too short to not enjoy the simple things in life.
BUT! If you are looking for inspiration on what goes where and some encouragement on adding linen decorative throw pillows in to your life…I’m your gal! I will cheer on our style no matter what it is while simultaneously guiding you and encouraging you to learn about home décor style and what is right for you. I love home décor and I can’t wait to share all I love about it.
In case you are wondering (and if I must be forced to label it) my personal style is simple and classic with a little rustic farmhouse thrown in. I also love family heirlooms thrown in the mix too!

Thanks for reading my introductory blog post. I hope you keep following along.
