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.
