What's Your Home Decorating or Staging Success Story?

Since you've found your way to this website, you're probably thinking of improving your home in some way. And I hope you've found some great ideas.

Some of you are bold and daring and have no problem taking a risk. Others may be a little timid, or downright terrified of making a change.

That's okay. This page is a challenge to try something new and then tell others about it.

Tips to Overcoming Resistance

  • Start small.
  • Change one little thing.
  • Try something you've never tried before.
  • Move an item to another area of the house.
  • Never assume it won't look good until you've tried it.
  • But do just one thing.
  • Do it today.
  • If you don't like it, you can always put it back.

Trying something new exercises our creativity, and creativity contributes to happiness. Every time we take a little risk that enriches our life, we get a little stronger and a lot braver.

Now that's exciting!

I hope you're inspired to try something new. And if you like it, please don't keep it a secret, tell us about it! It can be something big like a remodel or something as simple as:

Zebra Rug and Peach Roses on a Glass Table


  • Zebra rug
  • Glass top coffee table
  • Peach roses

Texture, color and layers create the interest. Simple, clean combinations can be very exciting. The high contrast of a crisp black and white zebra pattern combines beautifully with the delicate peach shades of the roses. A touch of green in the leaves is the finishing touch. 

Use the following basic elements in your own designs to ensure a successful outcome. Include:

  • Very light and very dark neutrals for contrast.
  • One accent color in art and accessories at least three times.
  • A fresh plant or a touch of greenery for freshness.

Cabin Kitchen Update and Remodel IdeasThis Colorado cabin was purchased because it had an incredible mountain view. And that's about all it had. The outside was nondescript, and the inside was...dark. The couple who built the cabin 35 years ago rarely went there because the wife refused to go. Do you suppose the kitchen had anything to do with it? Before and Afters.

"Nothing happens until something moves." Albert Einstein

You have to move. Take one tiny risk today, try one little change, implement one new idea. And if you like the outcome, please share it with us! Sharing great ideas is one of the highest forces for good on our planet.
