House to Home


Contrary to popular belief, not everybody can afford the home of their dreams right out of college- crazy, I know. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have your dream interior design- or at least close to it. There are a few things you can do to ensure you’re happy with your “right now” home.


  1. Find a few pieces of furniture or accent pieces that you are absolutely in love with.
    • They don’t have to cost a fortune either. And they shouldn’t.  If something inspires you it does matter whether it costs $8 or $800.
    • Flea markets, garage sales and thrift stores should become your best friend.
  2. Like cooking, as long as there is heart in it, it will be amazing!
    • Ok that’s not always completely true with food, but it is with design. When you love something you want to show it off and if that happens to be your couch, area rug or coffee table, you will innately make sure the rest of your room compliments it as well.
  3. There is always an accent piece that can pull your room together.
    • At the end of the day if there is one piece in your home that you love, you will grow with your little dream home.
    • Take your time with your home decor- the best design comes from the perfect pieces of your home coming together and becoming your personal design.
    • Don’t try to get it all done in one sitting (or week).
    • A good design takes time and very thoughtful care!
