Sure, I can cook and I can keep our home clean, but decorating? I will be the first to admit that I can NOT decorate. I have no idea where to start. Even when it comes to painting the walls someone might tell me "Oh, just pick your favorite color" but I have about 10,000 favorite colors!!
My sister, now SHE can decorate, let me tell ya!! Her house is GORGEOUS and I am pretty sure that Better Homes & Gardens would have NO problem sharing photos of HER house in their magazine!!
It's not like I have dreams of a palace like this one...
No... I like a smaller home. It's easier to clean and SHOULD be easier to decorate. Except, well, like I said, I am clueless about home decorating.
I recently have decided that I NEED to do something to make our home look a little more up-to-date (instead of 1998's finest curtains complete with balloon valance... Yes, I still have that old balloon valance... I told y'all I can't decorate!!!). And to help me, I have found some GREAT blogs with ideas!!! I've been reading, getting ideas, talking to my sister (thank you, Leslie!!!) and I'm going to slowly start making changes. Of course, I'd RATHER have Candice Olsen decorate, but on a pastor's salary, I'm pretty sure we couldn't afford her.
These are the blogs that have encouraged me to do something to make this home a beautiful home:
- Nesting Place (I am LOVING her mistreatments!!!!)
- The Inspired Room
- My Romantic Home (Mr. U would SO not go for this, but it sure is pretty!!!)
Now I would LOVE to hear of more inspiring decorating blogs!!! PLEASE share them! I need all the ideas I can get!! We have a clean home, we have a well fed home, but I would LOVE to have a charming home, too.
