Is decorating your living space really an important item on your to-do list? Is it really necessary to reconsider your surroundings more often than every two, five or ten years? With jobs, family, and basic household chores how does decorating find a spot on the list? Anyway, who has the time and money to redecorate?
If your home doesn’t greet your return with warmth and beauty, you are robbing yourself of wonderful spiritual renewal that will help you to complete the other tasks in your ife with greater pleasure. As your eye moves around your space it should rest on things you enjoy, colors that sooth, textures that stimulate. Artwork, photos, furniture and accessories should be positioned and lit to create an atmosphere that is yours alone.
Searching for the way to launch a career in interior decorating I was thrilled to find the Interior Redecorators Network (www.interiorredecoratorsnetwork.com) founded by Lauri Ward in the 1980’s with her first book, Use what you have Decorating. Lauri has trained hundreds of decorators in her method. Decorating in a day using what you already have and love, editing where necessary, has enhanced the homes of clients by helping them to correct some of the most common decorating mistakes. The method is fun, inspiring and economical. Clients participate in the process, usually working on one room at a time. The result is a space that is cohesive, balanced and reflects the client’s individual taste.
A beautiful, welcoming home has little to do with available budget to buy furnishings and accessories. It is the care and attention given to the space, taking into account the needs and interests of those living there that make the difference. Very often a professional eye can make all the difference. We would love to help you see your home in a beautiful new light.
