Today I wanted to welcome you all into my home. As a blogger, I want my reader to really feel like they get to know who I am and what I like. Part of the reason I started blogging was to share a piece of myself with the world--not only through words, but with pictures. I am by no means an excellent decorator--but I love a cozy feeling. When people come by I want my house to smell good, feel warm, have some glitz, and make people want to stay and have a good time with great conversation.
My house is eclectic. It is glitzy and girly--yet not so over the top that my hubby doesn't feel at home (except that one time I painted the bathroom pink--but we will save that story for another day ha). I have things I thrifted next to pieces I have purchased at my favorite store--Pier 1. I love beautiful wood and shimmering tiles--brown and amber colors fill most of the space. All the ways I decorate have a purpose--to make people feel at home.
Relationships are the core of my being-I treasure my family and friends. A home is a home because it is filled with the people I love. Sorry-corny,but true! I want my home to be a place of gathering and laughter. I don't cook--but love when people bring some munchies and I always provide the wine--aka the good stuff :)
What is your style of decorating and why?
