If there is one bit of wisdom I can impart to you today, it would be this: photograph your home! I’m sure most of us are pretty diligent about photographing our kids and families as they grow, even if it’s just casual snapshots here and there. But do you document your home as it changes and evolves? Those pictures are priceless! Great for cheering you up too. All I have to do to feel pretty awesome about my house is glance through some of our newlywed apartment pictures. Back then, ‘decor’ to me meant dollar store artwork classily thumbtacked to the wall and an obscene amount of fake greenery. I thought I was really taking it to another level if I bought a Kleenex box that matched my bedspread. Wow.
Shelly has a great collection of living room pictures that show just how much her style has changed through the years. This most recent look is definitely my favorite! Check out all it incarnations over on her blog Slipcovers by Shelley.
