    Fresh Ideas for Summer Decorating

    Fresh Ideas for Summer Decorating

    Summertime and the living (and decorating) is easy! There are so many things you can do that are so simple.


    Summer decorating might just be more about what you take away than what you add. Remove and store away any items that say winter. That is includes the beloved furry monogolain pillows!


    Maybe you take down drapes & let the room bask in even more sunlight.


    If you are adding for summer, how about:


    A straw hat casually hung on a hook or from a chair back; HERE

    No Stress Decorating

    No Stress Decorating

    If it's isn't fun, you're not doing it right. Decorating is a fun, exciting experience, at least it should be. If it stresses you, then sit down, relax and take a listen.


    Don't worry about your house being perfect! Embrace the imperfections and focus on what you love about your house. Reduce clutter, give yourself some grace, and complete those unfinished house projects that are driving you nuts.

Look Forward To Each Episode

Would love to have you ladies come to my home to help me decorate! Both of your homes are just beautiful!!! xo

teaching_joy ,

Perfect and practical advice!

Anita and Kelly, you have no idea what a positive influence you have on me! Both in inspiring me to elevate my home decor to make it a place I love, but also in providing a calming refuge from the day. I am a special education teacher, have five VERY busy kids, and am currently building a house, which is an experience that has been more anxiety producing than fun. Your podcast feels like a small escape with two friends. Your show is practical, helpful, positive, non-judgmental, and allows me to focus on the exciting parts of my new house in a way that gives me something to look forward to. Can't thank you enough for all you put into this--it is AMAZING!!!

Jeanna Bloom ,

Too many ads!

Hosts have great content to share, wish they had more time to elaborate, not just promote products. Loved the show at first
But now I flip through Pinterest when the ads come on

A few months have passed and I’m unsubscribing. The giggly chatter distracts from the content. Sorry ladies
