I am sooo excited to highlight some of my favorite spots of the new house...except the battery in camera is dead. And I can't find the charger since it was lost in the move. But...I will find it. And when I do, I plan to highlight some fun, functional aspects of our new house that ideas that maybe you an incorporate into your own. I'm a huge believer that form ALWAYS follows function, so everything in your home should not only be pretty, but useful first.
In the meantime, as I dig through tons and tons of boxes in an effort to find my charger (and I put the damn thing somewhere telling myself, "If I put it [here,] I will never lose it again. So much for that.), let me offer this tip that I learned from HGTV and continue to follow today:
Decorating tip #1:
If you are working with a small space or want to make a space feel bigger, always hang a mirror opposite of a window...because you will 'let' the outdoors in.
(LOVE this tip. It works! Try it.)
Okay, off to dig. Wish me luck.
