It’s all about ‘creating’ a pleasing, comfortable & welcoming home. It’s about home making & stimulating your creativity. This website is all about helping you develop your style & your intuitive knowingness & confidence of what is you & what is right for you.
I believe with a passion that your Home should be a place where you want to be – where you don’t want to leave, & when you’re away, you simply just can’t wait to get back to. Home Decorating is a process. To capture the things you love, the things that speak to you & speak about you, an expression of you, & who you are. Your home should reflect who you are. You should feel passionate about it when you’re there in its space.
Marcia’s Second Time Around is a locally owned and operated business specializing in the buy/sell of gently used home furnishing at 1/3 the cost of buying new.
You have your walls painted, you’ve chosen or already have your sofas & armchairs, you’ve worked out your color scheme. Now you’re ready to take the next exciting steps. Against your basic color canvas, you would have already put some thought to the way you would carry your colors through your rooms, your home – either graduations of your key colors, or complementary, or contrasting. Play with colors & fabrics you would like to make a statement with in your home accents & accessories.
It’s best that you keep your walls subtle. It’s tasteful, understated & classical. These can be creams, pale yellows & greens, pale melon, or other pastels. Be sure you go for an off-white or cream & definitely avoid extreme stark bleached white (unless you want the antiseptic feel of medical rooms or a hospital).
