Over the years I've collected several boxes of decorations, and gained even more when I married. The challenge was how to display them in a coherent fashion. The key has been to develop a theme for each scene, much like I develop a scene in my writings.
Home of the Heart Hint: I've discovered the easiest and best method of creating individuality is using names for the rooms in my house that reflect the theme and style I'm envisioning.
I even have name plaques for some of the rooms. As you can see from my kitchen photo above, I love the idea of being in my grandmother role, cooking for the grandkids and even teaching them a few cooking skills. Their photos on the fridge is a daily reminder of these dear ones. My collection of vintage cookware harkens back to my grandmothers' kitchens, reminding me that I'm carrying on their legacies.
I've posted a couple of other photos here of objects that hint at the theme of other rooms. Can you guess what these themes are?
from Home of the Heart, my best to you.
I loved writing about Meg Cary's interior design career in my romance, Home of the Heart. Meg worked on some pretty spectacular projects that I've only dreamed of. But my greatest pleasure has been exploring what's involved in creating one's personal Home of the Heart, both helping others as well as the evolution of my own home design. I'll be sharing with you what I've learned over the years as an interior designer.
