Just a short posting today...I'm off to enjoy the "warm" (hey, 40 IS warm for WI in Jan!) weather & hang outside w/the dogs after being gone for the weekend. Topic today is tips on sprucing up your home easily without busting the budget. You can use these same tips to help add some bling & value to your home's exterior as well if you're trying to sell your home.
...& don't forget, if you have any design, Feng Shui, clutter or color questions as they relate to your home, send 'em to firstname.lastname@example.org & I'll answer in an upcoming post!
Tips to Add Some Bling to Your Home's Exterior:
As Christmas & New Year are now in the "holidays past" portion of our brains & retail stores are now awash in pink, red & hearts galore...Here are some tips for the singles, the attacheds & happily-marrieds out there who want to either:
-AMP UP their romance vibe
-Are looking for someone special to share Valentine's Day with (and after!)
-Re-kindle the passion of days-gone-by
***If you aren't up to DIY or want some SPECIFIC advice for your space & your situation, contact us to schedule a "Valentine's Day Romance" consultation. This 30 minute consult will address basic situation, color, space-plan & accessory choice for your bedroom.***
Remember, when you want to focus on Relationships, Romance & Passion you want to focus on the design decor of your bedroom. And, if you're so inclined, you can "activate" the Relationship Life Area of your home. This area is the FAR RIGHT CORNER of your home's floorplan.
As I'm late in posting a new blog for 2012 AND we are getting ready to celebrate the Chinese New Year (Year of the Dragon) on the 23rd, I think I'm safe w/this headline! (Nice way to rationalize, right?). I hope you all had a fabulous holiday & have recovered from the festivities & are still on track to reach your new year resolutions. AND if you didn't make any on 1/1/12, you get a re-dux this weekend. So make those Vision Boards for your business and/or your personal life & make 2012 THE YEAR!
***This weekend is THE perfect time to clutter-bust all closets, drawers, under the bed, desks & garage! Room to focus on is the KITCHEN as it corresponds w/wealth & abundance in Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui.***
As for myself, the holidays were a total rollar-coaster, from a dental surgery on Dec 23rd, the result of an accident 2 yrs ago (!) & having to eat soup for a week, to FINALLY buying a new home in my warm weather dream location...it was definitely one for the books. More on the move as that progresses, but I will say it will be nice to a) unpack my stuff that's been boxed in anticipation of this move for 2 yrs...another Christmas if you will, & b) to go furniture shopping for this new home that truly reflects the new upleveling that's been occuring in my personal & professional life. Yes, 2012 is off to a great start. I hope it is for you all as well!
So, will all of this in mind, I can now shift gears for the next holiday approaching...no, not Super Bowl Sunday ( sad face due to the Packer loss this past Sun...good grief that was ugly), but Valentine's Day. As you all know, designing bedrooms is one of my passions...& since ROMANCE is 1 of the 2 activities that should be represented in this room (REST is the other), here are some tips you can implement into your bedroom decor, whether you're attached, looking or single:
