Personally, I have little or no style – clothing wise that is. I totally believe in being comfortable…and have not always pulled that off stylishly. You could probably say I dress like your typical stay-at-home mom…well typical in
at least. In winter - jeans and sweater (light weight
of course), in spring and fall – capri pants with cool sandals, summer – shorts
and tanks with more shorts and more tanks.
For those of you who don’t know – it’s awfully dang hot and humid in
in the summer. Arkansas
But my house now…I have always had a stylish house. I’m fairly certain my husband and I buy and remodel houses just so I can decorate. LOVE to decorate. When we had been married a little over 4 years, we bought a house that is about 4 sizes too large for us. It needed a lot of tender loving care, and the plan was to remodel, decorate, and resell. Seventeen years later we are still living here, because I can redecorate anytime I want just my rearranging who is sleeping in what room or what a room is being used for. Plus, now that we've been here this long, we have WAY more furniture than I want to move to another houseJ.
Ever fear you are turning into your mom? Well, in many ways I could totally benefit by being my mom…but she has no house style. Here’s her style:
|A readying nook/library - so me!|
I've always liked many different types of style – ultra modern, French country, mid-century sleek. But I find that I end up decorating in more of a transitional style. I love to find an old piece of furniture and put a totally modern fabric on it. Or take an abused piece of mid-century furniture and paint it high gloss black. Here are a few pictures of rooms you might find in my house...if I took pictures.
|Not my exact hallway but pretty close.|
|I just love this painting.|
|My dream dining room...|
|My current kitchen looks a lot like this...I just need more window.|
|A bedroom to dream dreams in!|

My style is an expression of my emotions via my house. I like things organized and clean…if only I could convince my family to feel the same J.
