How to Decorate with Inspiration Rooms

Hi friends! I’m out of town this week enjoying a little time away with my husband, so I’ve been mostly off the internet (besides some updates on my Insta stories!) but I wanted to pop in real quick to answer a question I received on my last post. 

I thought many of you might find this helpful as well so I’m answering it here:

 “Hi Melissa! :) I love this post. Have you ever written a post about how you draw inspiration from these photos and then practically apply it in your own house? On a budget? It would be fun to see how your brain works! :)”.

Yes! I have a whole series I call “takeaway tips”. I’ll share some of my favorites from the series below!

Speaking of favorite blog series, what types of blog content do you enjoy the most? What would you like to see more of this fall once I get back to my non-summer blogging schedule? Let me know in the comments!

    Love the walk back through your older posts! Can’t wait for all the advice in the new book!

    I love reading all of the older comments on your posts. It makes me happy to see what catches other people’s fancy. I even go back to look at the photos if someone mentions something I did not catch the first ( or second) time I looked.

      I enjoy the comments too!!! It’s so fun to hear what other people see and think.

    I loved looking through these – thank you so much!! I sincerely appreciate the way that your blog encourages us to use what we have and really be content at home. Some of the blogs I’ve enjoyed over the years have changed to buy, buy, buy to make changes. I have young children and you have helped me so much to really enjoy making my house a home for my husband and children. In terms of a series for the fall, I think it would be fun to look at decorating dilemmas and how to solve them. Or how to create charm in a challenging space or something like that. I honestly love everything you do. Thank you Melissa!!!
