Your home would have plenty of stories to tell ~

 

How we dress up the walls in our home is a 👏little bit like adding the perfect accessories to the “little black dress”.  We can change the mood, character or design by simply adding texture, color, wallpaper, artwork or photos. Our personalities are reflected in how we design our home… so are you shy, coy, flamboyant, artistic, adventurous, conservative or a totally “outside the box” thinker? I am definitely an eclectic decorator – mixing collectibles with photos, art, paint color and natural textures! If it can hang on a wall…I’ll put it up there!  Take a look at what I found…
