Hi ladies! Today for Courtney’s Corner, we’re doing a Q&A and sharing some pictures from her home. It’s been fun to add decor ideas to my blog.
Courtney’s Corner: Home Q&A with Courtney
Q. How would you describe your style?
A. Classic, Southern, with a Pop of Color
Courtney purchased her console in Lexington but we found it at Wayfair HERE.
Q. Where are your favorite places to shop for home decor?
Q. What is your favorite paint color?
A. Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams! My kitchen, living room, and dining room are all painted Sea Salt. It’s a great neutral color even though it’s a light blue-green; it’s fresh and goes with everything. Can you tell I love it?!?
Q. What interior design trends are you most excited about this year?
A. The design trend that excites me most is wallpaper. Our half bath and a wall in Caroline’s nursery are wallpapered, and I plan to wallpaper the wall in our entryway next. I have four different samples ordered to choose from. I love the color and texture the wallpaper adds to a room.
Q. Do you have any inexpensive tips for designing a room?
A. Start with a fresh paint color. Paint is the easiest and least expensive way to transform a room. New lighting also makes a huge difference to a space and updating the hardware to kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
Q. What is your favorite room in your home?
A. Our kitchen and living room are open to one big room, and it is the heart of the home. We updated this space when we bought our house in 2019, so I love that it is personalized to my style.
Q. What pieces in your home should you invest in?
A. Splurge or invest in the pieces you will use most often—for example, your living room couch or kitchen table and chairs. I would spend less on side tables, lamps, throw pillows, etc. I also invested in our console table in our entryway because it’s the first thing you see entering our home.
Q. Tips for decorating with color?
A. It’s best to pick a color palette and incorporate the same palette in each room. I love blues and pinks, and you will find those colors throughout my home.
Q. How do you make a small room feel bigger?
A. Of course, choosing a lighter paint color will really open up a space. Also, furniture placement is key; play around with different ways to arrange it until you get it right and ditch the bulky furniture.
Here are items from her home that are available:
Beauty For the Heart™~~ For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
Truth: Power, love, and self-discipline will offset timidity and fear. God gives us power (boldness), love (care and concern), and self-discipline (calm and cool-headed), which means fear and timidity come from the enemy.
If you’re feeling fearful, remember that it is not from God. He is with you, which means you have no reason to fear. When I’m feeling fearful, I keep this verse close by on a notecard and read it throughout the day.
Deeper Study: Read 1 Timothy 2:1-17
Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!
