|I don’t know about you but I am looking forward to Spring in a big way! I’ve always found when you’ve got the blues, winter or not, it is important to focus on the positive! I know some peeps might find this concept annoying, especially when it feels like everything is going wrong in your life…But it was (and is) what truly got me through the tough times. When I was living alone, as a newly single mother with a new born baby and three year old in a big old house I would repeat: “Focus on the good, Julie”… As my life changes, I still repeat this mantra when I am feeling overwhelmed.
To combat my winter blahs this year I am going to think about what I can do to my home and yard to update it! Today I’ve included “4” ways to update your home on a budget.
4. Matty and I did quite a bit of yard work at my home last year but I still have lots to finish up. It’s always a good idea to devise a plan before you make your purchases. A simple sketch or water color painting is a great way to organize your ideas. BHG has a link to a number of images and free design plans.
Proportion plays a huge part in my work, great design is all about balancing the elements. Over scaled artwork is the perfect way to add interest and drama to your home. My client art install went great last week, the large scaled painting by artist Elise Morris perfectly finished off the room! It’s almost photo-ready!
