I am re-doing my home and my blog will take you along with me. Everything has a story and each room has a story behind it as well as colors, themes, accessories, etc. So as I go along, I will share the stories with you.
I live on the Space Coast of Florida. Just for the record, there is nothing like seeing a Shuttle launch from your yard. Now rockets will have to do, but it is something that just never gets old.
So let me start with the PRESENT (no pun intended) and I will fill in the blanks as I go along. I am currently working on the kitchen (still) because I totally got side tracked over the holidays, although I've been working on other things not so big, inside and out... working on hand painting a kitchen chair now and here we are...in the kitchen.
The kitchen story is my "Once upon a time..." In 2005, I took my first trip out of the country. I went to Prague, Czech Republic, with my sister for the weekend. She has traveled the world quite extensively and is a wonderful travel guide. It was a great experience together and Prague is simply magical and very much like a fairy tale.
While we were there, I bought a painting and that has been my theme ever since. The thing about it is you can't just plug in Prague Decor and come up with ideas or product. Because the painting is a street bistro on cobblestone streets, I found that the French Bistro Cafe theme worked.
