I had some great reads on hold at the library and finally made the time to head over and pick them up.
"Affordable ideas for a relaxed home"...
This one I'm liking because it emphasizes making the most of what you have, going neutral and natural (but some of their colors seem a little unnatural if you ask me! like hot pink), cost-wise treating your interior like your wardrobe (a little here, a little there), and using color to enhance architecture. This book is extremely down-to-earth, and has oh-so-inspiring pictures.
Practically Posh (Smart Girls' Guide to a Glam Life)...
This has a lot of information you may already know, but it covers everything. From how to save on grocery shopping to caring for your clothing. Awesome.
No Place Like Home...
You almost get a little discouraged with this read after Cheap Chic. But it has great things like how to arrange your furniture, which artwork to use in a room and other fun stuff.
Yesterday, while my youngest and I were stuck at home with the sniffles, I got the itch to decorate my home for Fall. I had been wanting to, but homeschooling has been priority lately, and by the time we are done with our work, I am too exhausted for any creatives juices to flow. We had fun creating things:
As it says on my chalkboard-painted framed paper...Autumn has officially come here in the PNW! And I will give you the quote written on the black frame we created artwork on, behind the words of I-N-S-P-I-R-E (since it's hard to see).
"No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face."
