I COULD LIVE HERE - AN ECLECTIC HOME
Good morning ... hope your week's off to a good start. :)
Today I thought I'd show you a home I found on one of my favorite decorating blogs, Deco Photo Blog. Honestly, if this home was in a line up, it probably wouldn't be the first one I'd choose to live in, but I still love so much about it! I admire the vast array of bright colors, the eclectic mix of old and new, the patterned wallpaper (look at the gorgeous wallpaper on the bedroom wall!), and all of the personal touches like the art work, the books, and the little keepsakes on the shelves. It seems like the homeowner has put a lot of thought into the placement of each object and has brought in so many personal and meaningful pieces.
One of the most challenging parts of decorating our new condo (we sold almost all of our furniture and belongings when we moved here 10 months ago) was making it feel like "us". For the first few months it felt like a hollow shell with blank walls, very few accessories (such as pillows, artwork, and decorations), and many of our beloved family memories (family photos and special things we've collected over the years) were still packed away in mile-high stacks of boxes. Well, I can finally say it's feeling like home and once things are in a little more order, I'll post pictures on Simply Hue for you to see!
How do you personalize your home? I'd love to hear a few of your tips. :)
