Dress Your Home For Success

by Lisa Stewart 15 Apr 2013

Can we effect positive change in our lives by redecorating our home? My answer is yes, of course! In my article “Where Are You From?” I posed the question, should we decorate our home for our hopes and dreams? In other words, should we dress our home for success?

Most of us can answer the question, “Where are you from?” Not all can answer, “Where are you going?” Sometimes the future is uncertain and the path unclear. Stuck in a rut, we desire a change but don’t know how to make it happen. That’s when it’s time to give your home a make-over. Since everyone loves a new wardrobe, why not your home?

In order to “dress my home for success” I tailor an affordable design makeover “to do” list. I invest wisely to increase re-sale value, but never overdo. Deferred maintenance can derail dreams so I fix things that are bothering me or broken. I paint and update furnishings for a fresh feel. Sometimes it takes years to complete the alterations; other times it’s just a few days. But as soon as I finish my home’s ensemble, my life moves in a positive new direction down the catwalk of life.

Are you ready to fashion a “to do” list for your home design makeover? Pick a direction and just start moving. Breathe new life into your home and let the doors of opportunity open. Your home will love its new wardrobe and so will you!
