Don't you love going into other peoples homes and seeing how they decorate? I really enjoy it. I just love seeing all the different styles and most of the time I want to run home and try something that they've done. It's really hard for me to pick one style for my home because I like so many different things that I want to try and incorporate EVERYTHING that I like. That can be a bit non-cohesive and distracting, even for me. I wish I could just make everything in my house look like it belongs together. I was thinking about that this morning a bit and I was wondering what people might think my personality is like if they just walked into my home without meeting me. I thought it might be fun to try and decorate with my favorite things...even if they aren't traditionally decorations. I thought that might show more of my personality. One of my favorite things right now is my rain boots collection. OK, so it's not really a collection, I only have 2 pair, but I want to turn it into a collection. I am usually not a shoe person, but I am really drawn to fun rain boots. I took all my decorations off of my table and shelf in my entry way and set my boots on the table and then just put things around them that I felt matched the feeling. It was a really fun thing to do. I guess even if people think that's dorky or tacky at least it is something I enjoy right?? Plus it's functional. I like to be able to use things that I decorate with because I feel like it adds to the storage space in my house. What kind of style do you like?? My husband is a big contemporary fan. I am drawn to more of a french country/shabby chic/traditional look so our styles don't really jive very well. At least he seem to be fine with whatever I do. Do you try and incorporate your spouses tastes into your decorating?
