Wallpaper

Trends pretty much come and go, what was current last year this time may not necessarily be what is current today. Selecting a trend is like selecting an outfit; you have to be comfortable with it. Don’t buy because everybody else is buying; take it home because you actually like it rather love it. Let it be as personal as it comes, this way your home is not just made of trendy decor but trendy, personal and curated decor. I love curating, that basically means I will select and organize your home with what you love including your personal elements and items so that even when the trend is so 2018, your home is still chic and lovely in 2028. I like to put it this way, your home should tell your story, make it worthwhile.
