Design is a P R O C E S S. This is something I am learning every day with owning my own home and retail shop. We tend to have an impatient attitude when it comes to decorating a space… well at least I do! I want to “pick” [antiquing] and retail shop for a room I am decorating all in one day and have it complete. However, I am learning that this is not the best idea. I tried this with our master bedroom and I have already changed the bedding in just 4 short months. At first I felt guilty, but this is what helped me come to the understanding that designing can evolve and that is the freedom of small home details. It doesn’t cost a fortune to give a room a totally new look [way cheaper than a new house, right?!] by simply changing some pillows, throws, and decor items.
As we near the renovation of a new home I am really hoping to apply this idea. In our current home we were so excited about decorating, so we went to Lowes and Home Depot and purchased all the tile at one time making do with whatever they had on hand. So with this new house, that is if ours sells, I am hoping to take the time and truly search out what I have planned for the home and not to settle because its the quickest option.
I tell you all of this just to remind you that its okay if your house or space is already decorated, its still okay to change it up! Your home is suppose to be your happy place, where you are the most comfortable and happy. Make that space a reflection of your personality. Make it you! Don’t worry if it is “Pinterest perfect” [a later blog for that subject] make it your kind of perfect.
