Your home has a recipe (whether you know it or not!) The way your home looks and functions is a representation of your unique home recipe, which is made up of your unique list of ingredients. When you're cooking a meal, it is important that you use the right ingredients. You wouldn't try to make banana bread without bananas, but you shouldn't try to put bananas in a pasta dish. It wouldn't turn out the way it should, and it wouldn't taste good. The way your home looks and functions is no different.
You walk in to Target for toilet paper and mascara. You spend an hour and $15 in the home section but you get to your car and realize you forgot the toilet paper and mascara. (again? crap. maybe next time.) You get home and realize that the thing you bought for your home doesn't really fit with your decor, but it was at Target so it must be trendy... right? Does this sound like you? I know I've been there way too many times. There has to be a better way. I'd like to suggest that a better way exists.
