 How To Create The Decor You’ll Love In Any Home

We all do it.  We zip through Pinterest, Instagram and places like Houzz, and find rooms we love.  Entire houses in fact.  We save the photos and may even start dissecting and researching to see how to make these visions come to life in our home.  Before long we hit a snag.  For starters,  the architecture in the rooms we love is the exact opposite of ours.  Or the first piece of furniture we price is what we hoped to spend on the entire space.  Perhaps the paint color on the walls, so recently finished you can still smell paint, came out different from in the photo you used as your inspiration.  Sound familiar?  Designing a home, your home, does not have to be like this.  Designers don’t necessarily have a bag of secrets but we do follow one rule on nearly every project….

Little Hills Is One Of These Properties.
