Too many people try to imitate someone else in furnishing their homes or apartments. While you can get ideas from many sources and many people, when all is said and done, furnishing your own home is simply a means of self-expression. The decor should be your family and not someone else's. You are the ones that have to live with it, and like it, and it should express your own personalities, your own likes and dislikes.
You know that a dress on someone else would not necessarily be becoming on you. You know that a certain type of hair-do may look all right on a particular person but you may not consider it for yourself. So why even consider copying another person's decorating ideas and arrangements? As a matter in fact, if you think of furnishing for you and your family, instead of imitating, you'll wind up with a home that has more individuality and sparkle, and therefore can be more attractive and more useful. So, the best rule to remember is to "Be Yourself" in decorating your home. We invite you to come in and look around here for ideas and things that might be "you"- things you might like for your home. Let us help you.
