Have A Blessed Sunday

Sit and relax this morning with a cup of coffee listening to some soothing music, to get your mindset on positive thoughts and forget all the worries of your world. I think it was my grandmother that once told me “worrying is like a rocking chair, you’re always doing something just never getting anywhere”. Don’t waste your precious energy and time on things that get you nowhere and brings no happiness to your life.

Fast Five Fridays

grace-changes-everything~ Grace Notes

  1. Living Areas: Determine what your focal point will be – if you don’t have a fireplace, consider a high piece (art canvas picture, decorative tray, or a grouping) to focus your attention and draw you into the room.
  2. Dining Place: Recall your favorite restaurant. Besides the good food, what was it about the ambience that spoke to you that you can recreate in your dining place at home?
  3. Kitchens: Hang a collection of various baskets (use nails without heads – 1.5” brads). Use the baskets for bread, fruit, napkins, and utensils. Be creative and artful when arranging them on the wall.
  4. Homework / Study Area: When we study, we love to lean back in our chair and put our feet up on a footstool (choose one with storage). A stool can also be a convenient place to rest a snack tray.
  5. Bedroom: Always have fresh-cut flowers or flowering plants to create an indoor garden for your private sanctuary. Grab a few bouquets of store-bought fresh flowers, separate them and create a bunch of small bouquets to place throughout the bedrooms – all year-long.

Tidy Can Be Artful!

An organized home doesn’t have to mean white plastic boxes with generic printed labels. Nor does it mean getting rid of ALL YOUR STUFF!

But, unlike other organizing businesses that just focus on declutter. I aim to help my clients find order while interlacing some major style, at times I have had Redesign 101 lessons from my clients . . . I love that kind of connection of learning from each other.

There is a plethora of sharing at CCHC of useful tips and insider shopping resources to streamline your home-style with objects that serve function so you aren’t spending, oh let’s say, 20 minutes every effing morning looking for your keys or glasses! Instead, you’re admiring the objects you do own and using them in a purposeful way.

What I’m trying to say is make room in your life for what you love, and have space to take it in and enjoy it. I’ll give you an example, I love using trays (everywhere) trays give order, they collect small items and give them a home, a grounding place. The dish scrub, dish brush, and dish soap, along with a small vase of fresh flowers — placed on a tray, you suddenly have a small still-life. I always find a home for my trays while using them as a artistic focus of a space at times.

There are so many organizing products available everywhere. It can be confusing and overwhelming.  It’s about size, proportion, color, or should I go clear and so many more choices. In addition you probably have a lot of organizing products at your home that you can reuse like baskets, bins or totes (Please none from the 1980s). I put together a slide show of attractive, functional organizing products to share from two popular and favorite companies.

Looking For Brighter Surroundings?

Are you in need of some lightness during these dark cold days of winter?

Here are 5 Grace Notes to help bring clarity and lightness into your home~

Grace Notes:

1. Accessorize – it’s what separates us all!home assessories

Be smart about accessories. Accent pillows in a bold color or pattern, a bright-colored or white throw blanket and colorful fixtures will brighten up an otherwise dull room during the winter. For example, the palette of Mauve and Copper is a wonderful way to add lightness & brightness to your home in the winter months.

 

2. Don’t let your Rugs just lay there!

3. Declutter . . . and Discover!

4. Create brightness with Fresh Flowers

Brighten up your living room this winter with a vase of bright flowers and use a colorful arrangement to bring a fresh look to a kitchen or bathroom. Purchase bouquets of store bought flowers and let your light shine through the home!

5. Use Mirrors . . . in the right places!

I hope my Grace Notes brings Reorder ~ Refresh ~ Renew feelings to your home this winter season.
