Decorating Your Home and Sunroom to Reflect Your Tastes


You may not think about the things you use to adorn your home as more than just things you like to look at and live with, but whether you realize it or not, you've got a "style" that probably leans toward one of the major interior design motifs which include
Your style is a reflection of you, and your likes and dislikes. For example, if you like things to look neat and clutter of any kind drives you crazy, you may lean toward minimalism. If you like clean, angular lines, you probably tend toward a modern aesthetic. And if home to you means laid back, casual and relaxed, you may be a fan of country or rustic design. Some people like certain things with traditional touches, but also love artful pieces and bold colors. They might be described as having eclectic taste.

Whether you're starting from scratch in your first home, re-vamping or perking up your existing home, or downsizing once the kids have set out on their own, you'll need a plan to create a home that expresses who you are and makes you love living there, too!


Decide What You Like

Look at photographs of other homes in magazines and online. Soon, you'll get a clearer idea of what appeals to you and what design "niche" you fall into. You'll also see more clearly whether you prefer a densely decorated room or you lean toward the "less is more" sensitivities of a minimalist.

Choose Your Colors

The best way to create a cohesive, flowing home is to pick a color palette and use the same few colors in different combinations throughout your home. What you want to avoid is having one room end up being bold and bright, and another soft and romantic, for example.


What to Splurge On

Always spend the most on the pieces that are likely to be with you for the long haul -- e.g., a sofa, a dining table and a comfortable chair for reading. If you've got a sunroom get yourself a few key pieces to allow yourself to enjoy relaxing there, such as comfortable seating and a sofa or a cushioned lounge chair for naps on sunny afternoons in the late fall or early spring when it's still too cool to indulge in that luxury on the patio.

Where to Save

Feel free to skimp on accessories like lamps, mirrors, pillows and artwork by shopping at off-price stores like Target, Ikea, or T.J. Maxx. Mixed among the quality pieces that make up the "bones" of your interior, no one need ever know that you didn't splurge on them.

Add a Sense of History

Old pieces add a sense of history and unique character to a home, so don't decorate with only new things. Shop an antiques store, or if that's beyond your budget, try a flea market or a yard sale. Pick up a few accessories that you can't find in a store and they'll add depth and interest to your home.




Whether you accomplish your decorating goals in a month or it takes a couple of years, you’ll be rewarded by being surrounded by things you love in a home that’s truly a reflection of you!

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.

Summertime in your Sunroom

Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations. The bes…
