Hello and Welcome to {Start With Four Walls}!

I’m so honored to have you visit my online home. I believe anyone can create a home within their four walls regardless of their budget or skills. Most of the time, getting the feel you want in a room takes a lot of trial and even more error. It can be really discouraging, or amazing and fun. Usually, it’s all three. On this blog, I’ll share the tips that I’ve picked up during my own adventures in interior design (and life, and cooking – wins and fails) with the hope that they will make the process of creating a cozy home a little easier for you.

I love it when you share your tips and tricks with me in the comments section as well!

A little about me: I have loved design and decor for an extremely long time. When I was in high school I remember seeing a sumptuous canopy bed on TV, and developing a sharp case of decor envy. I had visions of myself in the lap of luxury, and with determination, I thought, “I have to have it, I can make it myself.” I ran out and bought iridescent green material, ribbon and two dowels from the hardware store. When I got home I immediately hung the dowels from the ceiling with the ribbon, and draped the material over the dowels. Voila! Instant canopy. I was thrilled, my mom; a little less so.

These days you’ll find me sporting the same enthusiasm hunting the aisles of TJ Maxx and furniture consignment shops, looking for discarded or overlooked treasures.

I adore reading cooking, design, and decor blogs.

I am a compulsive furniture re-arranger.

As you read through my stories, I hope you feel inspired, cared for, loved, and empowered. I’d love to be friends! Connect with me on Instagram or Pinterest. I’m also on Facebook and Twitter. I’ll come visit your blog (if you have one) and say hello as well.

If you are interested in design do-it-yourself, before and afters, and inspiration, head on over to the Design posts.
