You know those tricky questions or stressful situations that keep you wide awake at night?

Like, how will I ever choose a paint color? Or … is it even possible to create a cohesive style with a house full of outdated or mismatched pieces? How do I make a big room feel cozier or a small room less cluttered? What if I don’t know what my style is?

But Where Do I Put the Couch? | Giveaway

There are so many decorating questions and situations that can stump just about any of us. I totally get it.

Who among us hasn’t at one time or another said to ourselves (often as we are rearranging furniture once again in our dreams)…OK, I think have it all figured out now, but where do I put the couch?

I’ve asked myself many of these same questions over the years. And as a decorator, I’ve had to solve hundreds of other related dilemmas in order to make all sizes of homes and styles work with what I have, on a budget.

About two years ago I asked you, my precious readers, what decorating questions stump YOU?

The answers to your common decorating questions can finally be read in a brand new book written by me and my dear friend KariAnne Wood of Thistlewood Farms!

We are SO EXCITED to share our most recent labor of love with y’all and hope you’ll be a part of our book launch!
