I sent out an email the other day that was a bit more personal than ones I normally send out. I talked about the reason I put so much time & effort into making my home look and feel amazing. I explained that the real reason has everything to do with the life I want to live and that I’ve had to get over the idea that having a beautiful home is somehow shallow.
The way your home looks affects the way you live and I’m a better wife, mother, and overall a better me in an environment that inspires me, that I can relax in, and that we love to be in -- nothing about that is superficial!
But what really shocked me was the amount of people who responded back to let me know that they agree! They also want to create a beautiful home for themselves and for their family. Some even shared that it helped them realize they don’t want to put off the home they’ve been dreaming of any longer. And I couldn’t agree more.
You should love the home you’re in right now -- not in five years, not your next “forever” home, the one you live in right now.
It was an eye opener for me because honestly, I’ve considered the fact that sharing home decor could make me seem shallow, so putting it out there that I don’t think it is at all a superficial thing was hard for me. But I saw how much power there is in sharing my story so I’m making more effort to do that here!
The fact is, I’m completely self-taught, I don’t have a degree in interior design. But I absolutely love it and as a former teacher I love to break down concepts into easy to follow steps for you so you can get the same results. I really just want to be the bridge between the home you dream of creating and actually making it come to life.
In a big effort to get a little more vulnerable, I’ll be over on FB LIVE every day next week (starting Monday 9/10) at 9 am Pacific to share some of the big lessons I’ve learned that have helped me decorate and create a cohesive home without all the indecision and overwhelm. Being on camera live is a big step for me but I’m excited to get to know you better and have you watch me stumble through it! Give me a 👍🏻 if you’re all about stepping outside of your comfort zone!
