Why We Need To Keep Our Homes Free Of Feeling Like They Are A Museum...

Victorian lady, Living From Glory To Glory Blog


As a woman I tend to lean into pinks and whites with my color in vintage pictures!


Yet in my own home, I tend to have earth tones in my living room.





French country in my kitchen (Yellows, Blue and Sage Green and Beige)


My Husbands Den is done in browns and all dark wood.
Burgundy color chair and love seat; two horse blankets
And a bit of cowboy style with a bit of iron wall art.



But I do have my sewing and craft room done in pinks and frills...
And in rose patterns and vintage decor and vintage pictures.



When I look at vintage pictures of days gone by, I can't help but feel that
Things appeared to be more gentle and lovely.

I always like to surround myself with things that make me feel comfy and cozy!
Make your home a haven of rest and beauty...

I think one thing I always try to incorporate is this in my home;
A place that does not feel overly girlish for my husbands taste.
He enjoys things to be neat and everything to have its place.
But he does enjoy my taste in making things look classy and lovely.

When we can take our homes and allow our taste in decor and match it with
our husbands taste and preference, it makes it perfect for each of us!

Clean and comfy and cozy are the real decorating style we need...

Having good taste and style will look different for each of us.
I enjoy changing things up once in a while!
Changing out some of the furniture, or moving an end table,
Can be a nice difference in any room.
I have sprayed painted old lamps, and I have changed out pictures.

Keep your home fresh and not too girlish or plain or overly stuffed!

Our husbands do not want to feel like they are in a museum either!

Happy Homemaking!

I have learned the word Hygge. It's a Danish word that is a cross of comfy and homey and everything in between. Plus, it's a feeling, too.
Your home is Hygge.

I, too, love the feeling of a bit of yesterday in my furnishings and accessories. I could probably do my whole home in vintage furnishings and such. I do love the more simplistic way things were done back in the day :)

Hi Roxy,

I love your cozy kitchen. I really tend to lean toward the golds and blues too. I don't have a very girly space in my home, it is all boys but me. I enjoy taking the romantic tea pics though and Hubs lets me do it! LOL So good to hear from you! Have a great week.

Yahoo! Comments are back. I agree, that we need to find a nice balance that is comfortable for both of us. I'm sure I change things up more than what is needed, but it sure is fun!!
hugs,
Jann

I love how you've put this! I totally agree. I have a personal taste in things that doesn't match my husbands in all things, so we work together to find what suits us both. There are always things that we can do to make thing beautiful and cozy without adding too many things. I have been in homes where there seemed to not even be room for the people. All in moderation.

Hello! My home is cozy and inviting. I love the atmosphere in my home as its not overly girlie, since I have all boys. I love the western theme in our family room and I absolutely love my red country kitchen. Everything is tidy and very well kept. Well...unless you've been camping for 10 days and your house is disorganized at the moment. Ha! At least my home is lived in and not a museum.
Hugs..Amy
