I have been where you are, standing in the pillow aisle of a store I frequent often, feeling overwhelmed by the choices and questioning my decisions. Looking at shelves full of coffee canisters and wondering which one I should place on my counter. I have even been to the point of having a difficult time picking out something as simple as a tea towel for my kitchen. In my head I would have a conversation with myself trying to make a decision, “I think this is the pattern everyone is buying, so maybe I should choose one of these five tea towels” or “I think I saw this in the latest issue of some magazine as a top pick, so maybe I should go with that one”.
I have been inspired (and overwhelmed) by all sorts of imagery for years. I felt like I would love a particular style, but not know where to start or if it would even look right in my home. There were many times when I purchased the trendy pillow just to bring it home and have it look out of place.
I know not everyone is like this and some people don’t put that much thought into their homes, and that is completely fine. I also know some people always seem to get it right the first time and make it look so easy, but that wasn’t me either. I fell into this middle group that cared a lot about my home, but I also wasn’t trained professionally in the area of design. I was the everyday home designer who wanted to connect my story to my home, and thought there has to be a better way. So, I decided to get to work.
I created a framework and tools that will help create a feeling in your home. It is one that I use with my own clients and it is what want to teach you here. The end result will have your home feeling more like you because it is you.
If you are interested in joining me on this journey grab a notebook, a pencil, and let’s get to work. We are going to start with asking ourselves one question, why. Why is it important for you to make a feeling in your home? Why are you drawn to me and this blog? Why are you wanting to join me on this journey?
I would love to read and share some of your responses to these questions on my blog and an online class that I will be teaching, so please comment below! The course will be available to register for on August 1, 2016 and is all about teaching you the process and tools on specifically creating a timeless feeling in your home. Please be sure to subscribe to my blog below if you want to learn more about the course! All images by Lori Baskin Photography.
