Hello out there! So I just bought a house which is amazing but the idea that it will ever be mine seems so far away. I have so many ideas that I am trying to sort through....sometimes I don't think I even know what I want. So I wanted to ask you other creative minds....how does it come together? How have you infused your home with your own creative style?
Check out pinterest.com There's all sorts of cool and crafty things on there, lots of home decorating ideas.
Decor changes over time. You don't have to know what you want as a complete plan from the moment you move in. I make or buy things that I love and add them to the mix a little at a time. I subtract things that I no longer love. My decor is fluid and reflects my current tastes without costing a fortune.
In the ten years I've lived in my current apartment, there have been many adjustments - broken appliances replaced, new rugs to add color, plants, books coming and going at a frantic pace. Spaces get rearranged depending on what I need them for. Nothing is set in stone here.
I got my own house about a year and a half ago. And like Tink said, things are always changing. You'll always be adding things and getting rid of things. I think it's only over time that you finally get that "home" feeling (despite the fact thats things may come and go). Once you've been living in the house for a little while, you'll get more comfortable with it, and it will automatically be infused with your style.
But of course, you will need to do some decorating:
www.thenest.com is a site all about getting your first home. It's pretty cool. It's a sister site to "the knot" and the "the bump." They have some DIY yourself stuff too.
