What do you display on the walls of your home — photos, posters, artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?
I am married to a very visual person who also happens to have very good taste (in my opinion). My hubby is in charge of decorating our home not only because he has the talent but also because he loves and enjoys doing it. I am more than happy about this because when it comes to decorating and picking out colors and motifs, I don't have the eye and I don't really have an interest either. It took me forever to pick out drapes and curtains and finally my hubby went out and picked out the perfect shade of drapes in two seconds whereas I was still contemplating colors for weeks before.
Our walls are painted or wall papered and pictures of our babies are everywhere along with pictures of our wedding and other family events. We have my father's gilded frames hanging along with prints of Michaelangelo's works. We have a few paintings, our babies art works and other mementos throughout the house. Basically my hubby has decorated our house and transformed it into a home that reflects our love of art, color, family and tranquility. I love my home very much and it is mostly due to my hubby's work on our home that has made it such a wonderful home. I am very lucky.
We fail to put things up all the time. On average it takes six years to get anything hung around here.
I’m glad you have a happy home reflected through your walls. We have chaos and good intentions 🙂
If my hubby weren’t here, my home would be filled with good intentions as well and little else.:) What counts is the happiness within the home, not on what it looks like if you can have both, that’s nice but I would always rather have the happiness over the good looks.:)
Good point. Our list of home maintenance tasks gets bigger and bigger all the time but we are too busy to get around to any of them. But having fun!
It gets easier to do things when the children get older and need less supervision and can help with the lists.:)
