Decorating our home is one of my passions. Why I didn’t pursue that interest and attended a course in Interior Design is another story. But who knows, it may happen one of these days. Timing is key and with education, there’s no such thing as being “too late in the game.”
Having said that, even without formal education, I take decorating to heart and I supplement my basic knowledge and understanding of colors, harmony and basic design with books and magazines. As quick as new paint on the walls, as far as decorating the bedrooms is concerned, changing the bedspreads and comforters as the season change is one quick and easy way to update and lift the mood in the bedrooms.
That I’m totally in tune with fashion, is the same way as I am with home fashion. My linen closet filled to the brim with bedding ensembles, is proof. It helps that I have a husband who loves luxurious bedding ensembles too. That means, I can shop all I want from high end retail to my favorite catalog merchants and I mix and match the ensemble.
The result? One fabulous and luxurious bed that my husband and I can dive into at the end of every stressful day. We don’t have to experience five star luxury from a five star hotel. We get it right here in the comfort of our home. That’s also the reason why, when we travel, a big chunk of that travel budget is for a luxurious stay in a five star property no less. I have always shared our travels here in my blogs and anyone who frequents my blogs may have noticed it through the years.
Dressing up your living areas to the nines and sacrificing ones personal space such as the bedroom is a big no-no. After all, when you know where to shop and you are aware of the wide variety of sources such as online shops, catalogs and brick and mortar stores, your decorating possibilities are endless. From the living room to the bedroom, your home becomes your most luxurious piece of heaven.
