THEME??? Ya, what's your theme?!
Several years ago I had that same question. We moved into our brand new home that we had just finished building and I was tired of all of my old home decor. I wanted a new up-dated look. The problem was that I didn't know what that up-dated look or style was.
So..I asked a lady in my neighborhood who has a REALLY nice put-together home for some advice. She said:
- Pick some colors that you like and try to incorporate those into each room [me: check..I love maroon, sage green, ivory, browns, etc]
- Pick your style [me: that is my problem I don't know what my "style" is. I just know what my style is NOT...all of my old decorations]
- What is the "THEME" of your home? [me: theme??? We are supposed to have a theme? How about "we live here"...I didn't really say that to her] Like, for example the theme of my home is "Tuscan Italian" [me: Tuscan...WHO?]
So I am here to tell you, four years later, I have figured out the theme of my home! It is:
THE FAMILY PROCLAMATION
