Hello there! While My Dream Canvas is a lifestyle blog, many people refer to me as a design blogger. While its all very flattering.....I am not a professional designer:) I have had no formal training in design and cannot rightfully claim that title. However, over the years, I am getting more and more involved in the world of interiors. I believe that design and interiors are two very different things. I am sure the professionals out there can explain that distinction better. For me, interiors have turned into a life long love affair. I appreciate beautifully designed spaces/rooms. More importantly, I enjoy experimenting with different design and decor elements. The journey can be more fun than the destination itself :-)
If you are like me, and spend some time browsing online or flipping through magazines, you can spot the latest design trends. While I can appreciate design trends, I am not an avid follower. Though, it can be gratifying to realize that the design elements that I have used, have become trendy.
I have been meaning to ask my readers this question for a while now. How many of you spot something in a magazine or a blog and then go about creating something similar in your home? I almost never have the time, money, or resources to do that.
However, I do love creating new vignettes in my home. I use a lot of flowers. I feel fresh flowers almost instantly give my room a new look. As for the props, I just use what I have:) I simply club them differently and move things around constantly. It helps to create vignettes that makes me smile :) Don't be afraid to mix and match. Create colorful hues, and in doing so, have lots of fun.
While changing furniture, pillows, upholstery, curtains etc can be the boldest way to bring in change, sometimes subtle touches can do the trick as well:)
Here are a few images of my latest vignette............
