Decorating with Embellishments

When decorating your home, sometimes less is more! Try starting with smaller items or ideas that you can build on, rather than working with too many ideas.  Not knowing how to scale it back when things get too overwhelming can be frustrating to the point of not doing anything at all!   Our Unwritten Decal selection is the perfect solution for this–by finding something simple and unique first, you’ll be able to gain inspiration and not get your ideas scrambled.


Adding tasteful and easy-to-install embellishments to your home can update an old display or a neglected area and give your space the “facelift” it’s been needing!

You can browse our “Shapes and Symbols” embellishments here.




Finding Your Design Style

Over the next few weeks, we will be doing a series on decorating (or re-decorating!) your home on a budget, and we thought there was no better way to kick off this series than by helping you decide what your design style is.

Knowing what designs, color palettes, and accessories inspire you can help you decorate your home–and help keep things from looking jumbled and unfinished! There are an indefinite amount of design styles out there, so we are going to discuss just a few:

Country, Eclectic, Shabby-Chic, and Traditional.

These of course can be tweaked to  convey your personality and the mood you hope to set in your home, but here are a few of the thoughts and ideas we have come up with in each category.


This design style is all about feeling cozy and at home. If you feel drawn to painting your walls with soft colors and filling the room with knick-knacks and antiques, this is the perfect design style for your home.

Think: Antiques, small prints and uses of plaid, white furniture, distressed wood.

Country Style


Eclectic is a little more open-ended and leaves room for your imagination to really shine through. This style is for lovers of bright colors and mixing and matching prints and accessories.
Think: Vintage pieces of furniture mixed with modern accessories (and lots of them!), off-beat items, colorful walls.

Ecclectic Style


Shabby-Chic has really grown in popularity, as it is a great fit for the DIY-er in you and gives your home a comfortable, yet elegant feel.

This style mixes the colorful and polished with the rustic and austere.
Think: Vintage pieces of furniture, distressed wood, DIY painted furniture, white walls.

Shabby Chic style


Lastly is Traditional, which is exactly as it sounds! This is the refined and gorgeous home that I think everyone dreams of having at some point in their lives.
Think: Rich colors, plush furniture, dark stained wood, decorative trims.

Traditional Style

We hope this has been helpful in finding a style that  appeals to your tastes or at least jump starts your creativity!  Finding your design style can be a journey in self-discovery.  Jump in and get started, and if we can help you with quotes or embellishments we’ve already designed, great!  If not, we can get something customized for your unique style. We want you to be happy and excited about the new environment you created.

The Intellectual Office

White Space

The atmosphere in your office should reflect what you want to accomplish in this room.  Most home offices are intended to be a special place to accomplish specific tasks, but still inspire and motivate you to be productive. Here are a few suggestions for creating such a setting.

 Ponder color schemes.  Using rustic tones is a wonderful choice when you’re striving to encourage intellectual thinking. These are deep, earthy colors that aren’t distracting or too eye catching. They help you absorb your surroundings without diverting attention away from your work. Also, think about using lighting that emulates natural light if your office does not have a window.

 Accessorize with items that are intellectually grounded. Consider globes, maps, hour glasses, books, favorite paintings or personal photos — whatever inspires you. Be aware of items that distract and draw your attention away and avoid using them.  Below are a few of the new office decals we recently added to our site.  They embody old world charm and are so versatile!  Just remember: The more pleasant and inviting your space, the more you will want to be there.OfficeWhite Space
3. Optimize your productivity.   Organization will go a long way to help keep your study space clutter free. Having a space that is functional and organized is an important part of having an organized mind. It allows you to keep your thoughts collected and clear as well as helping you find materials as you need them.

Holiday Guests

The Holiday Hostess: My journey in how to get ready for planned and unplanned Holiday guests

Take a minute and just consider the best memories you have of visiting friends and family members in their home. I’ve been the recipient of many gracious hosts and hostesses. While scrolling through my mental memory book, several ideas came to mind of fun ideas that I can easily implement to make my guests feel the same welcoming warmth that I have received. While dwelling on the memories of Holidays spent with family and friends was pleasant, I soon realized I had work to do! Of course everything seems well put together when you’re the one visiting, but sometimes when you’re the hostess (or host), things can seem hectic and often not quite the way you planned.

So I began by making a basic lists of elements that should be addressed when preparing for guests in my home.  (I’m a list person)

List One: Basic Needs

In this list are sleeping arrangements (Is there a spare bedroom or an area?)

Do I need to purchase or borrow air mattresses, sleeping bags or cots?

Gather sheets, blankets and pillows (2 per person per bed) as needed.

Divide the space into a sleeping area as much as possible.  You can use furniture, plants, or a screen, just get creative. Always start in the corners and near walls as to utilize as much space as possible and try to keep the middle section area of the space open and clutter free for walking space and socializing.

So, which bathroom will they use, and is it stocked with extra towels, toilet tissue, new toothbrushes and paste, hand and body soap, a razor, neutrally scented shampoos and lotions? (Most of us forget one or two small necessities when traveling, and nobody wants uncle Bob to be stuck without a toothbrush for a week! So it’s best to have some spares on hand.)


List Two:  Thoughtful Touches

These are the extras that say “You’re Our Guest, Make Yourself At Home”!  In fact, we have a beautiful wall quote that says just that.

In this list you’ll also want to add: A decorative yet comfy blanket for the bed, books and magazines, a clock, a box of tissues, fresh flowers, lamp or perhaps some holiday decor.  A pad of paper and a pen can also be a nice touch.

Don’t forget to leave space in a dresser or closet for their belongings. I don’t particularly like living out of a suit case, so if I have somewhere to hang, or fold my clothes it helps me feel more organized and at home, even if I’m not at home.

Keep in mind:  the kitchen will be affected, so I add the guests favorite snacks and drinks. Consider food allergies or preferences (like vegetarian, gluten free or vegan). Although, I must note here that if a guests’ eating habits are drastically different from yours, ask for their help in preparing their meals.  I’m sure the request would be welcome and appreciated.


List Three: Have, Borrow, Buy

As I took inventory of what I had on hand, what I could borrow and what may be purchased, I realized this could get out of control if I allowed it to.  Not everything on my lists were “essentials”.  I didn’t want to overspend time and money on things that wouldn’t be used.  With a high demand on both resources this time of year. Focusing on the reasons my family is celebrating put me in the right frame of mind to get to work.

So with that focus in mind, I narrowed the lists down to what was time and cost effective and now I know it will turn out beautifully. Without the stress of large, unplanned expenses.


To sum up, here are some tips:

-Do something everyday to get ready even if it’s small, it will be one less thing you have to do when your guests arrive.

-Use what I already have, or borrow it from neighbors and friends that are close by.

-Don’t be stressed out. As the host or hostess, if you are calm and easy going, everybody will be much more comfortable in your home.

– Perhaps, most importantly, keep it simple. This will help alleviate your stress. Remember to enjoy your guests!

There you have it. As I was writing this, the excitement of having guests has been growing. Knowing they will be comfortable is a a pleasant and rewarding addition to my holiday joy!
