House Decorating Ideas

I admit that I've been bitten by the decorating bug. My favorite channel to watch is HGTV. I have gotten some really creative ideas on decorating my house. Since I'm not very savvy, then I take all the extra help I can get. I'm so glad when I came across this great website called Inviting Home. You can get inspiration from their picture gallery, and they have a wide variety of products you can purchase. This is a great site for the professionals as well as the novices.

I've been doing a good bit of remodeling inside the house that I can't for spring to hit the outside. I worked on my porch last year so I need to concentrate on the rest of the house. I want to have it painted and put in new screens on my windows. I think putting in new nice decorative shutters will finish the look. I really like the look of the panel ones which I think it will make them easier to clean than the slats. The color I really like is the Garnet.

The other great thing about decorating is you can use something you wouldn't in an unique way. You could use a pair of shutters to make a headboard. Or you can use a smaller set of decorative shutters on a wall with a mirror in the middle and a shelf underneath for a window look. Then add some decorative hardware for a finished look. There are many ways to decorate your home so check out this great site today.

I love HGTV, if I could, I'd marry it, ha!

Last year about this time I was going crazy trying to figure out what color to get for the shutters for our home...I won't even tell you the rest of the story because I am not happy with the results at all...sigh...if I could, I would paint my entire home (and it's brick) and go for a big WOW effect, but hubby will have nothing to do with it, so here I sit, with new, ugly shutters on my house, lol ;)

Good Luck!!!

very informative blog. Adding just a few small and creative decorative details can make your new home look like a million dollars. And who ever said a million dollar look had to cost so much? Although I design my house through Nina, these tips are useful for everyone who wants to decorate their house but do not have budget for expensive items.
