There was a time that I moved into a brand new home. While that was an incredibly exciting time in my life, I soon found how tricky it was decorating it to feel ‘done’. Builders grade is not exactly character filled.
Being there for several years, I went through two phases. Pink (seriously, I even had a pink couch!) and then forest green.
The forest green version by far was the richest and more me. Carpets were ripped out and hardwood floors placed. White bead board ran along the walls and forest green moved up on top. It was a very rich high end looking feel. Back in the day, it was actually gorgeous!
But then, it was all done. And I got bored.
Know what happened next? We moved.

Dear friends, if you’re wishing and hoping for the day that your home will be 100% perfect just the way you desire, completion comes with a surprise.
You won’t have ANYTHING TO DO.
Enjoy the the undone areas in your home. Think about them, then take the time to discover new ways to slipcover that sofa or paint out a feature wall.
experiment… (oh the stories I could tell you!)
create new stories…
And above all else… take your time and enjoy the ride.
I have learned so much hacking away at my current home that was badly in need of repair. And it’s led to many incredible stories, experiences and teachings only a wreak of a house could teach.
I’m going to start telling you a bit more about the behind the scenes stories behind my current home reno. I think you’ll find what transpired incredibly uplifting. It’s a story that really needs to be told in full book form one day, but I think a small travel back in time will fill in some rather important blanks for the time being.
