Home Decor: Seeking the perfect piece

To me, decorating is like a game. Sometimes I get lucky when I’m searching for home décor items and I find exactly what I envisioned.

Little Girl to Teen Room Makeover

Eek! I finally have time to write about my latest design project: a little girl to t(w)een room makeover!

Master Bedroom Makeover

I love the color purple. So when we built a new house twelve years ago, that’s the color I chose for our master bedroom. {My inspiration at the time was Oprah, for she had a purple bedroom too!} It was supposed to be purple with a hint of brown, so I distinctly remember making the […] Read more…
