House Décor update
Since I now stay at home with the kids, my newly proclaimed job description has been “thrifty décor lady who is constantly moving things around the house and redecorating”. I will sit and stare at a wall for much longer than I’d like to admit, and imagine what I can either move around in the house to put on said wall, what I can find used, or what I can find at Hobby Lobby (only when it is 50% off, of course).
It’s been a challenge to find a style for us personally. Especially since I am “thrifty” I tend to have a hard time giving away or selling items that really don’t fit anywhere. But as I’ve stayed home and had more time to really be thoughtful (aka not as impulsive) I am able to fine-tune the style a little.
I’ve been really aware how styles change as well. I like to mix things up on a regular basis. It keeps things fresh and lets me see if I like another set up better. I’ve really been noticing the feelings associated with a new mix of décor. Does it make me fell calm? Settled? Home? Relaxed? If it does, I notice that it sticks around longer. Although I am always changing things up, I wanted to capture some of our current décor. Interestingly enough, it is ALL on the main level of our tri-level, so I’m thinking I need to start spending more time upstairs or downstairs. I have really noticed how my style has changed a bit with time.
I’m big on functional , stylistic, clean, farmhouse, simple. There are so many cosmetic and even major changes that we hope to do to this house, but since budgets are tight, putting stuff on the walls seems to help!
