When Your Husband Doesn’t Share Your DIY Dreams

Your husband doesn’t want to talk about decorating decisions and that makes you mad.

You think it’s because he doesn’t want you to change anything in your home but maybe, he’s exhausted from your indecision and doesn’t want to see you frustrated anymore because he loves you.

So he tells you to keep it all the same.⠀

Your next home project starts with your last one. If your last project ended with you in tears, the dog hiding in the corner and you hating everything, no one in your house is going to be up for another project anytime soon. Probably not even you.⠀

If you want your family to know that home projects make you happy, then your job is to be happy when you do home projects.⠀🙌🏻

This time, start small. Start with a tiny risk. Move a chair, paint a $5 yard sale table, buy the big pillows but keep the receipt just in case.

When you get something right in the house your one job–be utterly, undeniably happy.

Before long, even the dog will get on board with your next project.⠀

Pillow Tips That Will Change Your Sofa’s Life

Changing up the pillows and throws is the quickest way to bring life to a sad sofa, or add some pep to a boring sofa.

I recently freshened up the barn sofas with some darling pillows and a throw in fresh hues of pink.

Different size pillows and different hues of the same color work together to create a balanced, casual, lighthearted sofa vignette.

If you are going for a hue on hue look with your pillows, be sure to add variety with textures, shapes, sizes and details.

I like to anchor the corners of my sofa with a big pillow–go larger than you think, most people use pillows on their sofa that are too small. These are 24″ wide pillows as the anchors.

I even added some pillows on this pillow back denim sofa.

Pillows are SUCH a risk-free and simple way to upgrade your sofa.

If you are ready for a change, go to HomeGoods, At Home or Target and buy a grouping of pillows. Try out different sizes and look for downfilled/feather-stuffed pillows because they’ll take a beating. Keep all your receipts so that you can return anything you don’t love. See how risk free this is?

Pretty Pile Holders
