secrets from a stylist

I've been totally obsessed with HGTV Emily Henderson's blog as of late, I enjoy her quirky writing style and lovely resource lists for all the rooms she designs for her show Secrets From a Stylist. She is seriously talented and actually gives useful tips for styling our own rooms at home. And her unstuffy delivery is refreshingly un-HGTV!

It has been a great jump starter for me to rethink how I decorate and what choices I can make for our own home. Here's to starting small! So far this is what is on my list:
  • Choose and purchase art for the dining room wall (I talked about that here)
  • Find simple and classic lighting for our dining area
  • Find a child-friendly storage ottoman to replace our wrought iron and wood coffee table UPDATE: We just scored ourselves a new cream tufted ottoman today! Yes!
  • Find new drapery in a lighter color (currently we have wine colored velvet curtains)
So far I've been trolling good ol' Craiglist every single day just waiting for the right listings to come up (I have a few search terms that I always employ), and I do believe that good things come to those who wait ... and by the end of the summer I'm aiming to complete this decor to-do list! I only have a few weeks to go, so here's to getting myself going! Yay!
