Don't Deny the Urge to Purge
32:05
Feel the freedom of an organized house when you give in to the 'urge to purge'. It's even more fun than buying something new. Take a listen and see what we mean. Firstly, please find someone to give your discards to. If you have old towels or blankets, check with your local humane society to see if they will take them. Secondly try to do a declutter at least once a year. If you don't the job will become too overwhelming and you won't even want to start it. Put like things together, that way you'll be able to find things and know where everything is. Now you will be less likely to accidentally buy something you already have. DTT living room challenge STEP 6: CONSIDER YOUR LIFESTYLE This is where practicality steps in. You may want the look of a Parisian flat with velvets and silk, but you live in suburban American with 2 small kids and a dog with a delicate digestive system. You are going to need to be honest with yourself on what you need for the space. Think about how this room will be used and by whom. Your deliverable: A list of activities that take place in this room, who is using the space, and special considerations for the space. Does it need durable fabrics multipurpose furniture pet-friendly rug extra seating Is it used for watching TV Is it used for homework? it is a home workspace Do you eat meals in here?

How to Create a Timeless Look
32:44
We all want a timeless look that will look fantastic for a long time, so today let's talk about what you can do to create a look that transcends time. One of the best tips is to avoid trends that can date your home. If something is super hot and super popular today, it probably won't stand the test of time. We suggest you hone your very own signature style that you love. Then you buy things that are you, rather than things that are 'on trend'. This is change in mindset that helps keep your style more classic and less trendy. Listen in for many more tips for a timeless look. We mentioned the wall art episode. You can listen to it HERE (https://www.decoratingtipsandtricks.com/315) Workman's friend moisturizer and skin barrier protection. See it HERE (https://workmansfriendbrand.com/collections/workmans-friend/products/barrier-skin-cream?variant=16212035305574). Kelly has been using it before working in her garden and after as a moisturizer. See Workman's Friend in action by watching Kelly's video "Ten Lessons to Make You a Better Gardener" - click HERE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAOjBJdnJho)to watch.

We all have a budget, and it's so hard to stick to it. Today we're talking about how to not blow your budget, and we've got some of our favorite tips to share. Staying on budget means that you need to think about the long haul, and not about instant gratification. Sometimes you have to wait for that special thing. Don't fall into the trap of buying filler pieces that you don't don't really like. It's okay to have empty spaces in your home. Be sure you know what items cost, then you'll know it when you see a good price. We've done a few other episodes on budget decorating that you can find below.

Best of: How To Create A Stunning Christmas Tree

Prelit hinged trees are super easy to set up HERE (https://amzn.to/2UfgDJt) We love to use a base of silver ornaments on our trees. The silver goes with almost any color.

Best of: Top Pinterest Trends 2019
54:45
We are continuing our 'Best of' series this summer, sharing some of the most popular episodes with you. Today we're talking about Pinterest trends 2019. Pinterest is a fabulous source for all sorts of inspiration, especially of the home decor kind. It is a positive force on the internet and a giant search engine with beautiful answers. Today we are exploring the 2019 Top Trends on Pinterest based on user searches. Ok.... Pinterest Trends: Call it rebel yellow, saffron or mustard - by any name this sort of yellow is cutting a niche for itself this year. Kelly uses it as her pop color and loves it. Anita maybe not so much... ;) See this color in action in Kelly's living room. Click HERE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0hZg5QDMjY). Sleek fireplaces are very much on people's minds. We give you lots of ideas on how to update yours to get on board with this look. Kelly loved the modern sleek fireplace when she was invited to visit the HGTV Dream House in Gig Harbor. Have a look HERE (https://mysoulfulhome.com/hgtv-dream-home-tour/). Fireplace glass is an easy way to update any gas fireplace. Just remove the faux logs. Create a base with sand and top with several pounds of glass pieces in any color you love. Get fireplace glass HERE (https://amzn.to/2KbPk1A). Textile art - more than your grandma's macrame plant hanger. Geometric wall art - our thoughts, must be an easier way to get this look than hand painting it. Tin ceiling tiles are coming back strong. You can find these tiles HERE (https://amzn.to/2I6208i). It is jungle out there ~ or really IN here. At least that is what it seems from the Pinterest searches for decorating with house plants. Greenery is up big. Get some plants - always in style and they clean your air. Painted tile or linoleum see the post linked HERE (https://mysoulfulhome.com/modern-farmhouse-laundry-room/). Wallpaper as we know, is stuck like glue to the top trends board. Way to double down on the Pinterest trends. Kelly just installed this paintable paper in her girls' bathroom that looks like ceiling tile! Click HERE (https://www.grahambrown.com/us/small-squares-wallpaper/12011-master.html#prefn1=DesignStyle&prefv1=Tile&start=3&cgid=wallpaper-collection-paintable) And she loves this black background rose print wallpaper. Click HERE (https://www.homedepot.com/p/Magnolia-Home-by-Joanna-Gaines-56-sq-ft-Tea-Rose-Wallpaper-ME1533/304915626?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHorizontal2_rr-_-301440020-_-304915626-_-N) Dive into the natural pool trend.
