  1. Hey – thanks for your post, I am needing some inspiration for redecorating a room right now! We recently purchased a beautiful new rustic leather sofa and now the lounge room looks like it all needs redoing….I don’t find it stressful, just where to start is the thing? I’ve always loved Moroccon style interiors and I think that as a theme it will go really well – we live an a converted barn and it’s quite open plan too, but I don’t want to overdo it. There’s so many resources out there and I find myself spending too much time looking at Pinterest pins! I’m excited really and I’ll have a look a look at the books you’ve recommended as I can’t afford to hire someone – thanks for inspiring me to stop looking and start doing something proactive.

    I loved your post! It really made me think of my grandmother who my mom likes to joke about by say “every day after school I came home to a new house” my grandma love to decorate and switch up the look of her home constantly. Thankfully I only feel the impulse about twice a year.

    I look forward to seeing what your shop has to offer.
