A home without animals is boring! Three years ago our dog died , it was awful. Then the silence and no doggie to take out, it was painful! Until a very cold day a very cute kitty found us! He"s awesome! We love him alot! But these places are awesome!

Decorating with things you love & have meaning is my style & animals too!! I call my style "cohesive chaos" but then again, it's my house & I can do what I love with it. LOL. Everyone should do what they love in their homes and not fall victim to styles/trends, etc.

I am retired but do some interior design here and there. I totally agree that people need to make their space their own but, I have often been approached by people saying their home doesn't feel "right" and they are just uncomfortable and don't know what to do about it. It can be a matter of changing furniture placement-taking a piece from one room to another, or change a color, drapes, or maybe organizing tips. One client hired me to help with her kitchen but, when I went to her home, I found she was overwhelmed with not feeling easy within her own lovely house. She did not like or use her truly

delightful dining room-the walls were painted with an unusual flesh toned paint and some wall paper. She was convinced it was beige because that's what the other decorator told her 10 yrs ago ! I found a lovely tan color by B.Moore and painted a square on her wall- the difference stunned her ! Ended up helping with her whole house.

Sometimes a bit of help can be a wonderful thing !!
