Style Tips: Quick Ideas for Refining Your Style™

Style Tips: Quick Ideas for Refining Your Style™

I’m starting a new thing here at The Inspired Room! I am going to periodically share quick, simple, useful ideas in a new post format. The official name will be:

Style Tips: Quick Ideas For Refining Your Style™

I’ve been getting tons of lovely emails with questions on finding or evaluating your style and creating style & beauty throughout your home. So, in considering what to do with these inquiries, I thought the best and easiest way for me to help would be to share ideas in a specific post format: “Style Tips.”

There won’t be a specific day for these, you might see one or two a week, or none at all that week. I need flexibility here in getting this started, my life can’t revolve around the blog! :-) But when you see Style Tips in the heading, you will know there will be a quick idea or two listed that you can try or think about for your home. I am really excited about this and hope you’ll find the tips inspiring.

If you have a question or suggestion for something you’d like me to include, feel free to send it to me at I can’t promise to get to everything, but I appreciate your feedback or inquires as it helps me to know what sorts of ideas to include.

Happy Day! Oh, I may have an extra couple of posts this week, including the first Style Tip post, so check back if you’d like. Also, I was honored to be asked by a fellow blogger to help unveil an exciting project that should inspire ALL OF US! It will be really cool so don’t miss it.

PS. No, that is not my new office, but I really am working on it! I am so excited about having my own space after so many years of willingly sacrificing for the sake of my children! I’ll share updates and photos soon. This photo is from

A Big Hint and a Giveaway!

Hey Girlfriends! You are so fun, I loved all of your guesses and the eager suspense you share in imagining who I could be talking about (or talking to!)! What would life be like without our girlfriends to gather around us and delight in life’s happy events and surprises? All will be revealed soon, my dears. Very soon.

As we gear up for our Inspiration Week to begin February 4th (by the way, I have some super women lined up to share their inspiration on how they find beauty in their every day life, and I hope YOU will take part as well!), I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway to get us in the right frame of mind! There is nothing like a great book to inspire us!

So, leave a comment here on this post with your contact information and you will be entered into a drawing for the following inspiring book (one of the only ones the author has written that I have not read, so I need to get one for me too!). If you have this book, I can substitute one of equal value! One comment per person, please. Winner will be drawn at 9 PM (PST) February 1st and posted by Saturday Monday.

Good luck to all of you, more surprises and fun to come!
