Hello seven thirty three readers, I’m thrilled to be guest posting here again today.
I’m Amy from the blog Atta Girl Says, where I share ideas to make your home brighter and your heart lighter. Every month, I share a new home decor post here on Kim’s blog.
Today, I’m going to be talking about decorating around an inspiration piece.
Every time a new magazine or home decor catalog comes in the mail, I speed through the pages and immediately feel the need to redecorate my whole house.
Every room, floor to ceiling.
While a ready-made room may sound appealing, my experience has taught me that the better way to furnish and decorate your home is by finding an inspiration.
When you identify something you really love, whether it’s a fabric, a pillow, a piece of furniture, a plate, a collectible, a piece of artwork, an inspiration quote or whatever else, you’re well on your way to creating a space you will love. One that is timeless and one that will outlast trends.
When you find an inspiration piece, you won’t be able to get it out of your head. Your heart will go pitter-patter as you fall in love.
Like I did with the floral fabric on my living room sofa. Once I found it, I knew nothing else would do.
The linen fabric, as it turned out, wasn’t the most practical choice. (Hey not everything we love is always the best choice; we all have a boyfriend we wish we didn’t in our past!)
The fabric didn’t hold up to the wear and tear of everyday use and after a few years the seats on the sofa became threadbare. But I still wasn’t ready to let go of this particular inspiration, so I had the cushions recovered in a sturdier canvas and kept the floral fabric as an accent. The other elements in the room were chosen to coordinate with this fabric.
I have a real obsession with fabric, so quite often, a gorgeous print will be the inspiration around which I decorate an entire room.
