A beautiful home that works for us doesn’t need to be expensive.

A beautiful home that works can transform the lives of the people living there.

A home to be proud of transforms not only our spaces, but ourselves!

Transformations in our homes triggers transformations in ourselves.

When our spaces work for us, we work better.

When our rooms give us pride, we feel better.

When our homes are beautiful, we heal better.

Every home should provide us with the security and peace to rest and to heal. Major improvements can be made with very little expense and you can do it yourself!

We neglect ourselves by neglecting our homes. A space that doesn’t work for us, that hinders us, that slows us down and frustrates us is a perfect example of how we endlessly put up with things because its just not “bad enough” to fix. Essentially saying, “I’m not worth a house that works for me.”

Something as small as a sticky door handle can begin a day on the wrong foot! (Or, truly, be the last straw at the end of a bad day… ask me how I know lol)

How long do we hold off painting a room because the cost of the paint and time is selfishly just because you want to. How often do we think, “Oh that’s silly, it is working good enough as it is!” As though we should be so grateful for having a roof over our heads that any improvements seem to suggest we’re being ungrateful.

If it drives you crazy its time to change it! You’re paying a lot to have a home – it should work perfectly for you!

You can paint that room for only one reason: BECAUSE YOU WANT TO. And that’s more than a good enough reason! Our homes should never make our lives harder but instead offer us spaces that work perfectly for our day to day lives.

Just because you have a laundry room doesn’t mean you have a room that is living up to its functional potential. Without a doubt, the biggest surprise I have run into over and over again, is that most of our spaces don’t require very much time, effort or money, to work a thousand times better for us!

Sometimes just a coat of paint can take a space from something you hate to a truly beautiful room you love spending time in!

Start with these three questions when you walk into your home.

Does this house work for me or do I work for it?

Am I proud of this home when I walk through the front door?

Do I feel safe and at peace here – do I want to come home?

Over the next few weeks we will be exploring what each of these questions means in depth and how to apply each one of them to our homes and to each individual aspect of our spaces. I will use examples in my own spaces from small improvements to large renovations to show you how I b

Over the next few weeks we will be exploring what each of these questions means in depth and how to apply each one of them to our homes and to each individual aspect of our spaces. I will use examples in my own spaces from small improvements to large renovations to show you how I budgeted and completed my the work myself from step 1 all the way to step 100.

As much as I gave this old home life, it gave me my life – it literally returned me to the dirt of my roots. Is it possible to feel indebted to a structure? I thank this home every single day that it is mine, that it fell to me to make it beautiful again. In return, this home has given me a beautiful life, a place of safety and pride and there is nowhere in this world I would rather be.

I believe our homes should make us proud and should heal us and bring us peace. I believe we should feel so blessed to be in our spaces that to keep them clean and neat is something we WANT to do. I believe we should feel blessed to not only have a roof over our heads but also the opportunity to make it a beautiful place not only for us, but for our friends and families as well.
