5 Way to Know If A Home Is "The One"

Saying Images-Amazing Images With Inspired Sayings - Part 2

My husband and I have been home-hunting lately.  Wow, what a process!  Our real estate agent emailed us an article on how you know if a home is "The One."  I thought it was interesting - so, here we go:

1)  You instantly feel possessive of it.

2) You start rationalizing it's flaws away.

3)  The kitchen and bathroom don't disgust you.  (That's a BIG one for me!)

4)  You involuntarily envision your family, furniture, decor, daily activities in that home.

5)  You loose interest in seeing other homes.

To see the full article, go here.

I don't  think we can say "YES" to all those questions yet...I guess we will keep looking!

How did you know your house was, "The One"?


  1. Oh Melissa! How exciting!!! I think it's always a great feeling to sink some roots into a place. When we were house-hunting, Jack and I stepped outside into the backyard and instantly "saw" ourselves living there. We turned to eachother and said, "This is the one!" And we seriously love our house and totally lucked out! Good luck on your hunt!!!

  2. Congratulations! That is super exciting... thank you for sharing the article. I believe that is all true and I can remember feeling the same way about our new home.


  3. Very interesting! I totally agree with these points. Good luck finding your perfect place!

  4. Can't wait to use these tips when we go shopping for our home...someday!

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches

In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.
Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.
Add pops of color.

Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:

This is what it looks like now!

A special thanks to Palmetto Street Church of God for allowing me the privilege to help make their foyer shine!

Which color are you immediately drawn to?

Since I found this via Pinterest many of you may have already seen it. But for those of you who have not,  it's  Paper Source's Colorscope Chart.  I was drawn to the blues - mostly pool or lake.  There are definitely some qualities in each that would describe me.

What about you?  Is it right on, or completely off??
