How to Create a Meaningful Home

How to Decorate - Creating a Meaningful Home by The Inspired Room
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been head over heels in love with creating meaningful homes. My passion for the home inspired me over the years to transform a half dozen houses into meaningful places for our family, to eventually to turn my passion into a service helping others to create meaningful homes and then I turned that business into a blog in 2007, which in turn transformed my life and home in more ways than I can count. It’s the heart behind my blog and a topic I never grow tired of.

Recently sweet Jenna of SAS Interiors asked if I would be willing to write an introduction for her blogger series on Creating a Meaningful Home. I  was honored. I can’t think of a subject I’d be more excited to write about, so of course, I immediately said YES.

You can find my Meaningful Home post over at SAS Interiors, I hope you’ll enjoy it and be inspired by the upcoming series!
