Welcome HOME!

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

What does YOUR home say when you walk through the door?

Is it like "Oh, you're back...whatevvs?

OR is it more like "WELCOME HOME GORGEOUS! Please come on in...how was your day?

Whether your entrance is your apartment hallway, or side door, or mud room or grand "for-yay" -- it should be welcoming to YOU!

Don't enter your oasis stepping over shoes, or last week's stack of mail or the bag of recycling you meant to take out this AM.

Walk through YOUR portal into an inviting organized space. However tiny or grand, let it WELCOME you.

I'll keep it just 'tween us...I won't tell anyone you put down your Diet Coke to go and do some front door tidying up...

Need some help with YOUR space? Preparing to sell your home? Let's chat about it!

Bed Time!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Ever notice that the bedding in hotels is almost always a nice, crisp white?

It's a blank canvas that has mass appeal.

A whole new look can be derived JUST from adding different accent pillows and a throw. AND white can be washed or even bleached. It's timeless.

And...this one at Overstock.com looks like a good deal!~ Starting at $99!

If you're thinking of updating your bedding or are preparing a home for sale...go for that "Ritz Carlton" effect...go with WHITE!

Meanwhile, hope you have a fabulous 4th!!
