Seasons change, why not change with them?

The benefit of changing things around and adding a few decorative items this time of year is especially enjoyable because of the rainy, gray days outside.

For me, when I come home I like to feel that I am on vacation and that my home is festive. It lifts my spirit and it will do the same for you.

Here I am sharing some photos of my Living and Dining rooms by Elle M. Photography that appeared an article in the Northwest Boomer and Senior News Portland Metro edition.

I hope the article, the photos and this blog inspire you to make some seasonal changes in your home. Invite your friends to come over and celebrate the holiday season and, incidentally, show off the new look in your home!

Don't forget the wine and cheese, and in my case, lots of sweets! Here's my toast to you for the effort you made to freshen up your home's interior!


Cheers! Salute! Salud! Sante! Prost! Skal! Kampa! Salute!

The laid-back life...

Image credit: Colin Poole This summer looks to be like no other as people return to a new normal for the season. With our usual activities limited because of the virus pandemic, our futures uncertain, we are more in need of a peaceful oasis than ever.

Spring Home Refresh!

Du interiors Beauty comes in many forms, and there is no better place to celebrate it …and your life…than the place you call home. Especially Spring, because this season is all about renewal and rejuvenation as your eyes drink in the rainbow of colors you see blossoming all around you. Our senses are aroused by escaping from grey, cloudy days. Windows and doors are opened to inhale the sweet smell of Spring days. Here I am offering ideas for you to bring in to your home to welcome one of our favorite seasons. COLOR ME SPRING My favorite Spring palette combines white, camel (chairs below), and soft pink or blush . They are fresh, striking – and unquestionably in season. They also provide some warmth without going too over the top, if pastel colors are not your favorites. https://www.milkmagazine.net/a-suivre-etrumtill/ Another idea is using all-white to brighten your home for Spring . If you don’t wish to go all-hog, choose sheer, white curtains that welcome i

February is synonymous with Valentine’s Day

However, the intimacy of romance is often centered in the bedroom. Is yours an invitation for romance or so neuter it’s uninspiring? Too often for longtime marrieds, romantic bedrooms aren’t high on the list. Maybe they should be? Here are some suggestions for making your bedroom more sensuous …set the scene of snuggling together with loving words. Mood Lighting  Wired-in lighting …in the form of pendants, as seen here, or plug-in -wall lighting …can free up your bedside table.
