Do Not Miss: Home Decor

In my previous life I was a great decorator.  My home was always beautiful with every wall painted, beautiful window treatments, and never a crumb to be seen.  Now in my present life I decided only boring people have beautiful homes.  Just kidding!  My older brother inherited the decorating gene.  And the gay gene, so that may explain it.

But alas, I still appreciate beauty.  And I am inspired be a few blogs where the beauty runneth over.

The Nester has a beautiful home with lovely, soft colors.  And she has 3 boys in all that gorgeousness.  I guess my excuse for lack of decor because of 3 rambunctious boys can no longer be used as an excuse.  Dang it, Nester!    She also has lots of tutorials so you can be a big fat copy cat like myself!

Who doesn't love the Before and After pictures? 320 Sycamore has inspiring remodels for the ugly in your house.

Melissa makes decorating look so effortless.  I believe she must work on her house 24 hours a day.  I work on my house for 24 minutes and I'm ready to call it a day.  She's very talented!

My latest do not miss I found through 320 Sycamore. One reason I didn't decorate anything yesterday, or clean toilets, is because of Houzz.  This site is genius.  My favorite are the idea books that tour different houses.  The best part is that you can add the ideas you like best into your own idea book, and organize them by room or idea.  I love, love, love it!  I  have my idea book organized by Maddie's room, boy's room, office, and window treatments.  I can easily go there for inspiration when I'm ready to decorate for 24 minutes!

Interesting...I will have to check it out.

But.......decorating for the Christmas holidays BEFORE Thanksgiving is not something to be admired.

It's not right. It's sick. It's wrong.

You have a great talent, but even if you didn't, at least you have the desire...I gave up on trying to make things look cute ages ago.
