Merry Welcome to my blog page! 

I am so excited to go through this journey with you.  As we go along this path, I plan to post on a frequent basis. I don't want you to get bored, but at the same time I also don't want to bombard you with postings.  Because to be honest, I'm kinda private.  A woman of few words.  But with that being said, my topics might range from the personal, to decorating, to my experience with recent services and purchases, all the way to general musings on life.  I do hope that you will want to come back for more!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Disappearing Doors




As I was browsing through the February 50th Anniversary issue of Southern Living Magazine, I was so happy to see they shared my view on doors. Under the article "50 Secrets to a Gracious Home", tip no. 8 says: "Make doors in a pretty room disappear. Remove casings, and paint or paper the doors to match walls."


I would take this a step further. I was in a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and noticed all the doors blended into the walls. Basically, just like tip 8 says. But, I also think a great way to achieve this look is with pocket doors. I love pocket doors. They just magically disappear and re-appear when needed. My dream home is going to have pocket doors. So often in homes you have 2-3 doors in close proximity and it becomes not only annoying but visually unappealing. I say make the doors disappear. Maybe have one statement door that stands out and say good-bye to the rest. Let's put them in our pocket!


Of course if you can't make the door disappear, make it worth noticing.
