Add a little whimsy…


While reading a favorite blog this morning, I was reminded of one of my favorite items in my home…

I first shared the story about this unique rock art panel in my post about my guest bath remodel seen here. The story behind this piece is that it was made by my Mom & Dad, 40+ yrs ago, after they were first married. Without a lot of money, Mom often hand made items to decorate their home…sound familiar?! Wonder where I got it!

I hung this panel in the guest bath and I love to see it every day! Although visitors and guests may not feel the same…that’s OK. I like that it is unexpected. I like that it is quirky. I like that it has a lot of personal meaning. I believe that these qualities are what makes your house a home.


As you decorate your own home, don’t be afraid to add a little whimsy…

All of the above items can be found through the online shopping site Joss & Main in the Best of 55th Street Design collection.
 
 
If you are not familiar with Joss & Main you should stop over and check it out! It is a flash sales online décor site that offers items on a limited basis, often at deep discounts to regular retail prices. Their carefully curated events - usually lasting just 3 days - showcase distinctive designs and trends, along with the talents of noted influencers from the interior design community.
 
 
Adding unique and personal pieces to your décor is the best way to personalize your space and give it warmth as well as style. I always encourage clients and friends to utilize those quirky, meaningful pieces that might be stashed away in the closet. Pull them out, hang them up! Don’t take decorating too seriously, add  a little whimsy to make your home feel like home!
