See how bright and easy everyday decorating can be.

Everyday Decorating

This is the time of year when I’m ready for everyday decorating. The holidays that I love to celebrate have come and gone. In addition the influence of seasonal changes are leveling out. Now I can take a moment to breathe deeply and enjoy a relaxing space.

Over the years I’ve concentrated on creating a living space that’s comfortable with a variety of seating options. Of course the leather sofa gets a daily workout from everyone including the dogs. This is where we pile up to watch TV. The chairs across from the sofa round out the conversation area and provide a place to plop down with a laptop or a good book.

As far as decorating goes, I’ve pulled together my favorite colors of blue, white and brown in various shades. I never worry too much about matching colors. I figure if it’s a shade of blue that I like, then it will blend in with the rest.

Everyday decorating mixing patterns.


The arm-chair and ottoman are the only pieces of furniture with a print, the other patterns on pillows and throws are mixed in the room for interest. In my home stripes and checks seem to go with everything.

Of course I love flowers for everyday decorating but thriving fresh plants make me happy too. Plants really do liven up a room don’t they?!


Everyday decorating with plants.


Ferns have interesting foliage and are fun to incorporate into the decor. See how your eye automatically goes to that pop of green in the room.

I have a variety of small galvanized buckets that are very handy for plants. I use them to hold cloth napkins, flatware, flowers and a variety of other things in the kitchen, laundry room and studio.

    I like your coffee table styling because it is just plain sensible for family living. I see so many over styles coffee tables which require everything to be moved before the family can use the room. You have a lovely room there Michelle.
