The Most Important Part Of Every Decor

Motivational Monday


“Make Every Day a Holiday….and Every Meal a Banquet.” -shb

Just as important as how we build and furnish our homes, are the people we share it with.  Friends and family are a big part of our decor.

Know someone who could use a little extra motivation right now?  Why not pass LBD along?
