Home is where the story begins! These simple words speak to me and touch my heart! We all go crazy decorating our homes but in my opinion we are all weaving our own unique story! Or at least we should :) For an authentic decor experience remember to create your home first for yourself and your family and then for others. It is really not important how fancy or how simplistic your decor is. Ideally, it should only be about that warm fuzzy feeling that your home evokes for you at the end of a long day!
In my college days, I was extremely house proud of "my room" in my parents home :) So, I guess that is where it all began for me!! As a child we moved around a lot. We lived in little army towns where the homes ranged from really tiny spaces to rambling mansions. There were no home decor stores and most of the times the furniture came with the house :) However, despite the limitations, my mom always managed to create a warm and beautiful home for us.
Somehow, despite the fact that we moved houses every few years, I remember my home had a certain look that never changed. It was always warm and cozy with familiar things...... and a look and style that was all our own :) I have tried to do that in my home here as well. It tells our family story, it speaks of our personalities, our interests, our roots and it evolves as we grow.
I bought this delightful sign today and as it lay on my coffee table, I could not help taking pictures. The peonies too were just waiting to be clicked. As you can see, I went a bit crazy :)
Here's wishing you a great week ahead and remember to tell your story :) I would love to hear about it!
