One of the nicest things about decorating a home is choosing the furnishings, colors, and important treasures we appreciate and value.  Opening the door to your own home,  hopefully gives you a gratitude and calmness that can only be found when your are fully accepted within the walls!   As we enter our home, we should sense love and comfort and find well-being.  It doesn't matter if we are poor or rich, those we love are near!

Todays decorator has a vast selection of stores and venues to select just the right look desired.  Beautiful furnishings can be found almost anywhere today and it is always fun to look, even if you aren't in the market for something new.  It cost nothing to look except a little time. Family dynamics usually play a big part in decorating a home.   I hope the interior of your home radiates a passion and reflection of your inner spirit.  If you love color, then obviously selecting colors that you enjoy is important.  I love a pop of color but I also love the serene and warm neutrals.  Furnishings must be as meaningful as they are decorative, so finding a balance is always important.  I think it is wise to begin with one nice anchor piece, such as a sofa or large chest or cabinet and then find pieces within your price range to decorate your home.  Impeccably fine pieces do not have to be in your home to make your home beautiful.  Empty rooms can be beautiful if a loving spirit is there.

I have found a young new designer whose style I really like.  You can check  out one of his decorated rooms below.  I love the lived in feeling of this room!  It's a family room so maybe that is why I like it!

The Bible reminds us in John 15:16-17 of how precious we are to Jesus.  We are much more valuable than a house or any decorating style.  Jesus validated us as worthy when He chose us to belong to Him.  How precious that thought is to me as a Believer.  The Lord wants to be with me.  The Lord wants to be with you.  He wants us in His Presence.......even when He seems to be silent.  Silence before the Lord is okay.  His Word reads....."You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit-fruit that will last.  Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.  This is my command:  Love each other."  You  and your loved ones who know Christ have been chosen for the Glory of God!  I hope you feel worthy my friend......for you truly, truly are!  Enjoy your day!!!
