My style is always changing. Isn’t that the beauty of having our own style? Around October/November, I discovered this awesome home decor community on Instagram and was instantly giddy with excitement. I had no idea that there are ladies that love crafts and home decor as much as me. I married young, so I’ve been decorating since I was 19! It’s been sweet getting to know many inspiring women and connecting with them. I see all of these stunning photos on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook.. and a million thoughts go through my mind. Why can’t my house look like that? How come my vignette isn’t as pretty? How can I get my living room to look like hers? The thoughts would go a mile a minute. TV Shows and magazines stage rooms so beautifully, it’s difficult to compare. It’s like the media is forming us to think this is what our houses are supposed to look like too. Recently, I realized what style is all about.
God gave us all our own style for a reason. I haven’t been working on my blog as much as I want to, because truthfully I don’t think anyone cares what I have to post or that my pictures aren’t as pretty as others. Thing is, there will always be at least one person who won’t like it. I choose to post anyways, because there is no wrong or right way to decorate. Decorating is a journey and it should be a fun journey. Suzanne Kasler is a firm believer that “A room should be collected, not decorated.” When you start living by those words, your house becomes a home. Then, it’s no longer how big or fancy your home is, it’s about the memories that are built inside it. My blog, crafts, & photos may not be the best, but they are a part of this awesome journey and I am SO happy you all have decided to come along!
Now that I’ve given myself a little reality check, I’m looking forward to sharing more and more blog posts. We’re moving in 2 weeks, so I’m sure lots of new house posts are coming soon! What are some things you struggle with decorating? What would you say is your style? I have created a hashtag #lovemydecorstyle on Instagram so that we can all be inspired by our own styles! I would love to chat with y’all.
