Finding Your own Unique Beauty

January 26, 2014

As an interior design blogger and interior designer, I read a lot of other design blogs, ranging from home owners decorating their own house to large design conglomerates that have a team of writers.  It has been intriguing to me and has been on my mind for several weeks to write about this topic.  There is a particular blog that shares people’s projects that they submit and I thoroughly enjoy the posts.  They always congratulate the contributor and praise the work they have done.  However, then I scroll down to the comments and I am shocked by the things I read: bad mouthing the project and commenting on personal taste.  Although I may not personally like the particular piece or room posted, I still admire someone who first took the initiative and labor to work on something for their home, and second to submit it to a blog to get posted for millions to see.

This post is not to focus on the nay-sayers, but rather to bring to light a positive subject.  Each one of us, I know especially women, want our homes to reflect our own personality and uniqueness.  We all see beauty in different things and that is wonderful.  Never, never let someone else put down what you want to have in your own home. 

Finding confidence in your own personal style is so much stronger than selecting everything from a magazine page. 

Let your space shine with you and your family in mind, no matter what a family member or neighbor might say.  So to all those wonderful people contributing your fabulous furniture refurbishing projects and room makeovers, I salute you for letting your own unique beauty show.

    Janeane, Trusting your own taste can be difficult for an individual, but the results pay off. Over the years I have incorporated the things that I fell in love with and my eclectic style has finally become clear. The things you love will never go out of style. Great post!
