If I had to describe my decorating style it would be Eclectic. I fill my home with the things I love and have collected over the years. There are many different styles represented French Country, Modern, English Traditional and whatever I find for a bargain! Put these all together and you get = Eclectic 😉
I find all of these Eclectic pics very inspiring! Hope you do to!
You will find a pooh bear or some sort of doll from my childhood all over my home. My childhood stick horse greets you as you come in the front door. I believe in surrounding yourself with the things that make you happy, the things that have brought joy to your life and bring up pleasant memories.
I use whimsy whenever possible, I like to surprise my guests with little unexpected touches around every corner. I love the rug in the picture above, very unexpected in that room.
Color, color, color! Don’t be afraid of it! Throw the colors that make you feel good up on your walls. If you hate it, it’s only paint not a tattoo 😉
I think your bedroom should make you happy when you wake up, not bored! Add some splash! Put something that makes you giggle or smile on the wall that you look at first upon opening your eyes every morning. I have a wall of different style and color Crosses on mine, reminds me what it is all about and to thank God I am waking up another morning.
Have a sitting area somewhere that makes you go aaaahhhhhh! Your own special spot! Keep your favorite magazines, photos and of course your favorite candy on hand! I always have a chocolate stash and a bottle of water in mine. Don’t forget the big comfy throw too, you may want to take a nap. 😉
Don’t be afraid to mix different patterns and colors that you love, trust me it will reflect your personality and fall into place just perfectly. Your home should reflect you not someone else’s ideas or the stores that your purchased your goods.
Have fun in your home ~ make it a place that gives you a big ole hug when you walk through the door. Get your old toys out and play with them, they miss you 😉
