Grand Plans for My House

I know getting your home decorated and organized can be really frustrating and overwhelming so I wanted to share my room-by-room plans for my house.  When you list out what you need it is a lot easier to walk in to stores like IKEA and leave with what you need, not a bunch of stuff you don’t need (I have done this, I know it is easy to do!).

Of course this isn’t all going to happen at once.  Slowly but surely over the next few months (and years!) it will all come together.

Don’t decorate for the sake of decorating- bring things into your home that you love!  Carefully examine every purchase that you make- do you NEED this for your home?  Is it on my list of things I need for the house?  By asking yourself this you will save yourself money and you won’t end up with lots of things that you don’t need and don’t mean anything to you.

One thought on “Grand Plans for My House

  1. Great tips Jules! I definitely need to plan like this for our home. I’m not much a a designer, but this may help me cut down on buying something that looks cool but doesnt exactly go in our home, or that we dont need.
    Thanks for the fabulous tips!
