Don’t Start Over, Tweak Your Decorating

Last week I put away my Valentine’s Day decorations and pulled out the Shamrocks! Normally, I build a centerpiece from scratch, but I really liked the vignette I created for Valentine’s Day, see http://wp.me/pKNzn-Fr. I decided to remove the Valentine’s and add a little green.

We need to take this approach to all of our decorating. It is tempting to trash everything in a room and start over, but each piece has a story and memories attached to it. It is better to tweak our decorating.

How?

  1.  Remove clutter.
  2. Take out a piece or two.
  3. Replace just one item, i.e. worn out furniture.
  4. Add just one item from another room, i.e. area rug.
  5. Make a replacement from scratch, see Bookshelves to Bookcase http://wp.me/pKNzn-yl.

I was amazed when we moved an area rug from the living room to under the kitchen table. I fell in love with it all over again!
