How Do You Want Your Home to Feel?

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Going into 2015, you may want a change or to have a new direction for your personal space. How do you want your home to feel?

This is the question that Laura Gaskill, a contributing writer for Houzz, asked in one of her  ideabooks, “The Question that can Make You Love Your Home More.” As she said, asking ,”How do you want your home to feel,” is a surprisingly, yet “deceptively,” simple question to ask, because it gets to the heart of the matter about what makes the idea of  ‘home’ so important to us.

As Gaskill states, “Defining the feelings you want to cultivate in your home will give your home a purpose. It will help you zero in on the results you want and worry less about each little decision along the way.”

Here’s the short quiz, from her ideabook you can take that will lead you to the answers:

Ask the question. Ideally, ask the question of yourself, and have each person who shares your home also answer the question. Below I have phrased the question a few different ways — sometimes a slightly different angle can help unlock your answer:

  • How do you want your home to feel?
  • How do you want to feel when you walk through the front door?
  • What do you wish guests would think about your home when they come over?
  • What are the top three words you would use to describe how you want your home to feel?

Once you have your answers, continue to the ideabook’s tips for bringing out those feelings in your home.

Some of the tips include ways to achieve the following:

  • If you want your home to feel relaxed
  • If you want your home to feel creative
  • If you want your home to feel peaceful
  • If you want your home to feel welcoming
  • If you want your home to feel fun
  • If you want your home to feel authentic
  • If you want your home to feel safe
  • If you want your home to feel happy

There are resource articles for each one of these topics.

Finally, there are lots of comments and ways you can glean information and tips for achieving the look you want.

As she asks, “Your turn: How do you want your home to feel? Please share your answer in the Comments.”

Ways that Wallcovering can Solve Some of your Decorating Dilemmas

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

Have you ever had decorating dilemmas in your house? Here are a few ways that wallcovering can serve as a solution to some of your problems:

Do you have markers, pencils, pen marks, or dog scratches on the wall? No problem! Instead of spending all of that time trying to clean it up, consider fixing it easily with wallcovering, while at the same time decorating your home!

Have you found dents or dings on walls following a little one’s temper tantrum?  If they aren’t too large, wallcovering may be able to solve that problem, too, by covering up those affected areas. However, if you have large holes, you’ll have to patch first.

What if you can’t even paint your walls, if you are renting? Someone who doesn’t have time to paint probably won’t have time to put up wallcovering, either. Wallcovering that is removable and doesn’t leave a residue behind on the wall can solve the decorating problem for renters and for those with lack of time, because it is quick and easy to install, and in most cases, can go over your existing painted finish.  Plus, the wallcovering can be reused at another time and location, even on cabinets or furniture fronts and screens.  It can also be used for bookcase backings, stair risers, and many more decorating projects!
