Creating Favorite Places in Your Home

It’s been super busy in my shop lately with lots of orders shipping out. So, today I want to share some of my most favorite spots in my home with you! The first one shown below is my entryway with this super fun Victorian sofa, pillows, and stairwell. If you missed my previous blog on wallpapering my stairwell, you can read it by clicking here.

I’ve also created storage with some style in my living room. This old church pew is a great place where we can sit and put our shoes on that are stored in the baskets below. Isn’t the wall art by Carrie Schmitt amazing? And I just love these new pillows that I scored on Etsy by Femmehesse.

This final space is my bedroom. It’s got lots of color with blue as the anchor of the room. I love how I can layer other colors into the space to give a punch of energy.  I’m constantly switching out decor to freshen things up.

I’ve learned over the past few years that I should actively try to create spaces in my home that bring joy and peace. Joyful spaces help my mood and outlook on life and bring me hope. These places above definitely do those things for me. My only question is…why did I wait so long to create them?
