Interior Decorating for the Financially Strapped and Emotionally Exhausted October 24, 2007

Samuel Johnson is reported to have said that “To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labour tends.”  Many of us spend a great time on the enterprise and labor part, and not so much on being happy at home.  One of the things that contribute to our home-based contentment is liking what we see around us.

There are a number of obstacles to this, and they tend to vary by individual.  Some people are intimidated by interior design, so they end up with white walls and beige everything else.  Some people have a fabulous design scheme, but it has nothing to do with them.  Still others have trouble with maintaining order (I fall into this category).

I can’t promise to solve all your problems, but I can assure you that this is an area where you can become more competent, and the Library can help you.  Click here for a fabulous array of interior decorating books.

Check in tomorrow for the Book Goddess’s Top Ten Tips for Home Decorating!  (I’m pretty sure they’re not what you expect….)

Samuel is right.
I live/work from home. I live on Lake Ontario.
It’s the BEST way to live. Lotsa light, music, space.
Fantastic views at every turn, PLUS fully wired to ‘on’ in an instant.
Can equally ‘turn off’ without guilt. LOVE my HOME.
Cheers, canadada
