Add Personalized Artwork

Want to dress up the walls of your home but don’t know where to begin? Start with personalized photos! Whether you choose to display these pictures inside of frames, on canvas, or with SwitchArt, is the place to shop. I absolutely adore the large canvas prints that hang in my home. The vibrant colors and quality design add such a personalized touch to my decor. Not to mention, I can display them in a gallery wall, on my shelves, or all by themselves. So many possibilities. If you don’t have photos you wish to display in your home, also offers incredible pieces of art ranging from landscape photos to abstract art.


Update Your Bedding


Switching your bedding is a simple way to give any bedroom an instant face lift. When decorating my children’s rooms, The Land of Nod is my favorite place to shop. As you can see, this Orange Little Prints Quilt paired with their Little Prints Orange Triangle Sheet Set give such a fun and colorful touch to my son’s room. Best of all, these colors and patterns are something he can enjoy for years to come. Be sure to visit Land of Nod for other stylish bedding, furniture, lighting, and decor options.


Change Your Light Fixtures


Nothing instantly sets your home apart like updating your light fixtures. Clean, sleek, and versatile, Shades of Light’s Clear Glass Sphere Chandelier adds the perfect modern touch to my dining room. Although this chandelier would also look great hung in an entry way, I love the unique light it sheds on my kitchen. All of our guests can’t get enough of it’s simple yet influential design. Available in polished nickle and bronze, this Clear Glass Sphere Chandelier is sure easy on the eye! Visit Shades of Light for unique fixtures for your entire home.


Pay Attention to the Details


Decorating your home is ALL about the details. From chalkboards to shelves and baskets, Rod Works Unique Home Decor is your one-stop-shop. I love decorating and redecorating my son’s bookshelf. Trying to keep elements of his personality flowing through the room, Rod Works’ Black Alarm Clock and Metal Basket do just the trick! Some of my other Rod Works favorite include their Double Wall File Basket and Men and Women Bathroom Sign. Talk about the perfect pieces to personalize your entire home!


Add a Focal Point

I really love how a light fixture update can change the whole look of a room. I need to update the lights in my upstairs area.
