My sweet friend Melissa Michaels from The Inspired Room wrote the most amazing book on one of my favorite topics....loving your home.
If you have ever met Melissa then you know how completely genuine and passionate she is about what she does. That shines through in her book :)
In the back of her book she gives you 31 days of challenges to help you love your home. They are super simple. I chose this one for today's post:
"Every room will feel so much better with a touch of life - plants or flowers or other organic elements such as fruits, vegetable, or branches. What organic elements do you have in your home? You can cut branches from your yard, try growing plants (such as succulents or herbs) in your window, or treat yourself to an inexpensive weekly bouquet from the market."

Adding flowers (and plants) is one of my favorite things to do. They cheer me up! They breathe life into a room. The tulips finally started blooming in my yard so I took advantage of a free bouquet!
Melissa's book talks about taking care of your home, finding beauty in simple things, finding the balance of beauty and mess, cleaning tips, using what you have to decorate, arranging furniture, decorating with things that mean something to you, and simple ways to find contentment where you are. It is a truly beautiful book!
