Serious Tips Continued...

Marni Jameson continues with her entertaining recap of Lessons Learned in 2015 to make Life easier to live in 2016!

JULY.... Houses become Homes when Love Abounds!
A house is just a building of construction materials, furnishings and personal items. It doesn't become a home until emotions and values attach such as Love, Compassion and Caring!

Love Abounds at Home   Corner Sectional Piece  

AUGUST... Shorten That Sofa!
Yes you can! You don't have to sell your favorite piece of furniture just because it's too big for the next home. Find an Upholsterer that's worth their weight in gold and let them do their Magical Skill! Marni discovered that even with using a paper grid layout, her 7-foot long pair just wouldn't sit pretty, so she googled the conundrum! Check out the example above of a DIYer who converted her funky corner triangular piece to a regular corner arm chair.

SEPTEMBER... If you REALLY want to know someone, go shopping with them!
Merging Households means selling furniture and buying new pieces. Deciding to purchase a couch or sofa which anchors the main living space can be more difficult than most imagine. It's the statement piece and the direction for the remainder of the design.

Sarasota Historic HomeOCTOBER.... Blank Walls are Paralyzing!
Even for the pros, a blank wall can be a challenge. Assembling a collection around one significant piece is an option or building stories that relate to one another can add interest to the space. Whatever direction you choose, it should be a reflection of your life and soul.

NOVEMBER.... Living in History!
Being asked to support Historic Home Preservation seemed like a good idea in the spur of the moment, until all sides expressed their informed opinions. Marni's rules: Don't like History? Don't buy History! Does Your Home Contribute to History? Respect it! Want to Build New? Don't Tear down History!

DECEMBER.... Coming Home!
This is something that hits home. Marni moved her 93 year old mother from California to Florida in time for the Holidays. With numerous logistical and health hurdles to balance, Mother is close. Marni has a real home. The New Year is bright!We wish you the Best and Most Abundant New Year!
