Home...

"Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbor. Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes."



Mother Theresa

This Texas family room re-do is sensational and what I am loving right now!

Spring might have actually "sprung" here...our version anyway (ie no snow, some sun and 50's w/ a giant hope of reaching 60 degrees by weeks end) and I am determined to de-clutter, room by room as well as touch-up paint, clean windows and slipcover a few things (in white!!!!).  Our house has a french-country vibe...which I have loved/do love - lots of toile, yellows/golds, deep red dining room, hardwoods...you get the idea, people always tell me upon entering that home feels "warm and cozy"..."inviting" - I love that!  Whats a home for if not to welcome friends and provide refuge and comfort for you and your family...but  I need a change!!!! I tell ya what, I am obsessed with white slipcovers right now...I want to freshen everything-up, I want some soft blues, sea shells and grasscloth rugs, I want things to feel simpler, calmer, more serene...I want less clutter, fewer "things"...I want beauttiful, soft lighting and sparkly chandaliers, smell good candles and lots of white fresh flowers around...not too long a list, huh?!  Ha!!!...I'm on a mission and I'm on a budget...a small budget!  I'm finishing work on the kids'rooms in the next few days, then our bedroom re-do/spring clean/de-clutter/freshen-up starts...what a wonderful gift to yourself and your husband don't you think?  A beautiful bedroom....?!

A couple of dreamy bedrooms to admire...


 This bed...need I say more?!

 Love the setee and the white window panels and the perfectly white, perfectly stacked pillows!


Love the hardwoods, the velvet setee and the double doors open to what looks like a gorgeous master bath!


 This is a fun collage...a great combination!

Happy Spring friends!
