We bought this house almost a year ago. Right away we knew this house was much larger than our tiny condo – and we would be separating our small amounts of furniture among two living rooms and a separate large dining room – plus we have four bedrooms now instead of two.
The big thing we noticed was that we lacked decoration. We needed something to make this house feel like a Home – but because I was anti-decoration in our tiny condo (for some strange reason) we had a long way to go to be ‘homey’.
But it’s getting there now!!
A big thing that we had to invest in was some silk plants. They’re not exactly inexpensive – but when good ones are purchased, they sure do make for a beautiful home – and it takes up the dead space that otherwise looks like something is MISSING!
I am always on the lookout for things that go on the wall or otherwise add color to a drab space. I still have several more rooms to decorate in this home.
I recently got this beautiful plant below from www.silkplantsdirect.com – but I haven’t cleared out all of our Christmas decorations yet to find a place for it. I know it will go perfectly with the rest of the decorations!
This particular plant is so pretty I had to have it right away. I love how it’s sort of wispy but still has a masculine side to it –which makes it an acceptable decorative piece in our home – and it’s sturdy too, so it should last us quite some time.
What types of things do you have on your walls? Do you use silk plants to help add life to your home?
