Resolve to Add Zest to Your Nest!

The New Year is here and some of us have made Resolutions to better ourselves in some way, but what about our homes?  The Christmas decorations are packed away and as we look around the house our rooms look bare.  It is a good feeling, like when you purge your closet and can actually find things!  I like to look at this as an opportunity to RESOLVE to make decisions that we seem to put off for our homes.  

The thought of starting a decorating project can be either exciting or scary, depending on your experience, your budget, and your time.  I hear the following comments from my customers, friends and family…”I need to get rid of everything and start over”, “I want to paint but get overwhelmed at color choices so I do nothing”, or “I just don’t know where to start”.

Start with what you have – not everyone has a budget to get rid of everything and start over.  Most of us already have great pieces of furniture, art, accessories and even architectural features in our homes that we like so focus on those things and make them important.  The things you don’t like you can change up by repurposing, refinishing or recovering.  Another option is to consign or donate them to make room for something you really love.

So RESOLVE this New Year to add Zest to Your Nest!

We would like to help you with ideas on how to get started, no matter how big or how small the project might be.

Please Join us at Orange on Wednesday, January 22nd from 6PM to 8PM and meet some local business owners who have experience in visual coordination, home organization, and furniture refinishing/repurposing.  There will be wine and appetizers to go along with great information that Barb, myself and these wonderful women will have for you!

Space is limited to the first 15 who sign up for this INSPIRING EVENING!!!  If you would like to attend please let us know in the comments section below or call (813)681-8686.

Here are some great ideas for you to get started –

Repurpose a piece – this bar cart becomes a great side table.

Lighting is key to any room – make sure it is pretty when turned on and when turned off.
