Home Décor with a Loving Touch


Your home is your sanctuary. It’s your castle. It’s a special place of comfort and safety, and filled with love, joy, and laughter. It’s at times a haven in which to cuddle up and close off the world, and in other moments, it shines as an integral part of the neighbourhood - opening its doors to receive friends and family. And of course, we all want our home to look and feel beautiful, warm and welcoming. But shopping for charming embellishments to take your décor up a notch can get very expensive. Imagine using your own loving touch to transform your home into an exquisite place that garners ooohs and ahhhs when visitors cross the threshold. Even before they cross the threshold – you can stop them in their tracks by a bit of decorative flair on the front stoop!

DIY home décor is fun, exciting, and a wonderful low-budget option. It allows you the opportunity to infuse your (and your family’s) personality into your rooms. You have control over shaping your space into whatever you want it to be. You can let your imagination run wild…right onto your walls! And your family can contribute – by coming up with unique ideas (for example, children can contribute to fantastic makeover ideas for their bedrooms) or by rolling up their sleeves and working on projects with you.

Homemade décor is very personal, and can be the tipping point for transforming your house into your family home. It’s like baptizing your home with a river of personality and love!
