My cousin is in the Real Estate business and published a link on Facebook for a particular house that is now on the market- something called the Young House Love?  I decided to check it out since the house had a “name”.  And I’m so glad I did!

This is one of my favorite blogs to follow now! 

You probably don’t know this, but at a certain point in my early twenties, I wanted to become an Interior Designer.  Not that my house shows that now, but I loved the thought of transforming rooms and making them look “WOW”.  Whenever I visited my friend Tera’s house- I was always so inspired.  Her home always looked like walking into The Pottery Barn.  Even her apartments looked stunning!  I wanted to decorate like her.  But I could never get it to look the same.

Interior Designer dreams were set aside.  I don’t have the eye that I thought I did. 

When I see the before and after pictures on the Young House Love blog- WOW.  That’s all I can say is WOW.   They transform kitchens, living rooms, family rooms- all with stunning paint colors and fabrics.   Makes me think I need to do something WOW for our living room, which has always been rather blah.  It probably won’t happen for another year, or maybe three!  It’s not a priority, although I would love to have that WOW factor sooner rather than later!

Here’s their blog:

Great links and tips on how to make an upholstered headboard, add depth and texture to a room, make your own art, refinish cabinets or furniture (which apparently they do in place, and not out in a garage or something- yeah, that won’t work at my house!)

I’ve also added the blog link to the front page of MY blog so that you can check it out anytime you want to feel inspired to jazz up your house.  Go for the WOW!
