Jennifer Rizzo...

I've always been an artist but never knew it.

Even when I was little I would paint and draw on everything, but as I grew,
 I pushed it down, feeling like a starving artist wasn't really an acceptable job.

Now that I am in my... ahem... late 30's; I've finally gotten to the point
 where it's almost a "need" for me to let that inner artist come out.

 My home is certainly one of the places I like to let it shine.
 A bit of whimsy can make the entire space.

I've always loved color and texture and now that I finally feel like
 I can express  myself, I am trying to become more fearless in using it.

 On a whim, I'l stitch up  a pillow or cover a lampshade with a fabric I like.


 I have no problem putting fun things in my home
 or covering my girls room in paper butterflies. 

It's only decorating, not life or death. 

Decorating should be a fun, organic process. Be creative, take risks.
 If you hate it, just change it. It will make you love your home so much more.
