Okay, so I’m about finished with simplifying and organizing my home. During this process, I’ve also been rearranging a few furniture pieces and redecorating spaces in an effort to make my house a home that I love. LOVE being the key word. As I mentioned last Friday during “After Class with Mrs. Hines”, my rule of thumb is love it or lose it.
But one thing I struggle with, as I think many of us do, is being able to truly define my style. I will look at a photo, a room in my own home, or a home decor accent in a store and wonder, “is this me?” I NEED to figure this out. I want to enjoy my space instead of changing it all of the time.
As I would browse my Pinterest boards, I noticed that certain photos really stood out to me. I thought that if I could pick out those pins and collect them into one place, that it might help me to define my personal style. So, I went through my various boards and selected rooms, landscape, and even some fashion, and created a collage.

This board has “me” written all over it. The white house with black shutters and dormer windows is my dream house. I love cottage style gardens, rooms that glow, and spa-like bathrooms. My favorite color is blue, in any hue, and I never tire of navy and gold. It’s just as classic as black and white. I’ve noticed lately, that I like seeing little splashes of red mixed into an otherwise soft or neutral color palette.
This exercise was a great learning tool. I hope you will give it a try.
See you in class,
