Create an ‘atmosphere’ – Lighting is a fabulous mood creator. Create a focus with a lamp in a corner, or particular spot for accent. Light scented candles, listen to music you love, use soaps that are creamy, luxurious, lathery & smell great. Go for the multi sensory approach.
Go & visit home decorating stores - even if you can't afford to shop at the best stores, go there to see what it's all about. Don't slavishly follow everything, but develop your sense of what looks good.
Your Collectibles can play a featuring role in your home decorating, with great style & panache. Surround yourself with the beautiful things you love. Honor your home by decorating it as a way to express who you are from your inner core.
