Favorite quotes:

1. Decorating is all about working one room at a time, with an order and making smart decisions based on what you like or don’t like and what inspires you.

2. Shopping second hand is so fun if you have a little bit of time and if you have more time than money. It's such a great use of your time to find second hand things.

3. I have found some methods and some steps and an order of making decisions when it comes to decorating a room in our house and attacking that room and making it look the way you want that really really works for anyone even if you are not design-ery.
