Less Is More...

but more is better!

I have loved doing the home tours at Kelly's Korner, because it makes me finish projects I keep putting off, and I have to at least clean one room a week! It also helps me realize when a space looks nekkid. Sometimes you can't tell unless you see it in a picture. That was the case with one of my guest rooms.


This is the room the fist time I posted it: It's fine, but too much wall is showing for my taste.


So I went shopping in my own house and found some crosses to group on the wall. I also added a green pillow to the bed and put the "home" sign over the window.






I only spent $6 to add some oomph to the room. That was on 2 red flowers for the lamps.

I always love those baby head bands with the big flowers on them. So until I have a baby to accessorize, I will just embellish my lamps. I just cut most of the stem off the flower, tied a bow, and then hooked the flower in the middle.

So much cuter!


I also added the three plates on top, that I already had, to this wall.


When you only buy things that you really love and that reflect your style, they will be interchangeable in almost any room in your house. It's fun to switch things up and redecorate by "shopping" in your own home. Then you can tell your husband how thrifty you are (and he won't care about that pink cooler).


Thanks for all the cooler comments. You completely convinced my husband that we needed it.

Now lets tell him I need a pink mini cooper!

I love the wall with all types of cross. I want to do something like that in one of my walls back home!!!

I am not sure about a pink Minicooper, but I saw a burgundy one in front of my hotel in Paris this morning, that it would be perfect for me : )
