Life is crazy. If you live at my house it is really crazy. So my journey to create a calmer, more organized home is a must. As an interior decorator, what most of my clients want is a home that is attractive for entertaining, as well as comfortable and easy to live in. A place where their family is nourished and friends are welcome- not a decorator’s showroom.
Remember that this is a journey….it is a process and will take some time. As a decorator, I am expected to have a beautiful picture perfect home. Truth is, after I decorate everyone else’s home, I really don’t feel like coming home and working on mine. I have several projects that need to be done and can’t seem to find the time or desire to tackle them. I do not deal with chaos very well, and most of you know that when you redo a room…..the whole house becomes chaos.
So I have been doing some simple projects. Small things everyday that are easy to complete in an hour or so. First was my junk drawer in the kitchen. Why do I have a junk drawer? If I am not sure where something goes….it goes in the junk drawer, never to be seen again. Next was the hall closet, and then the linen closet. It feels so good to have those things done. I know, not very glamorous. But guess what? I love it.
Once I get the smaller things done, the big projects won’t be so overwhelming.
