Guest Post | Melinda at House 214 Design

It's going to be a busy week ahead for me as I prepare to head off to teach at the Haven Conference in Atlanta in a few days, and I'm so thrilled to share some fabulous guest posts for you from some blogging friends! There is nothing like some fresh inspiration and today I would like to introduce you to a talented designer that I know from Instagram. I'll turn it over now to the talented Melinda, from House 214 Design...

How are you? It is so nice to meet you all! I am excited to be here with you and Janet today at Shabbyfufu. My name is Melinda from House 214 Design. This is where I teach the everyday home designer how the feeling they wish to create in their own home has basic design elements that will communicate that message consistently. As a result, making design decisions for your home becomes simple and easy.


I found myself feeling frustrated and overwhelmed when I was trying to create a timeless and simple feeling in my own home. I came to the conclusion that we all have similar questions and concerns when it comes to designing our home. Is this really me or am I making this decision because it is the latest trend? Am I still going to like this look six months from now? I also remember hearing that my home should tell my story, but exactly how was I supposed to do that? So, I decided to get to work.


  62What I discovered is that when you marry your feeling and personality traits with the right design elements, you begin painting the picture that is your story. It doesn't matter if your budget is large or small, the important element is that the choices you make for your home are made with intent and purpose. I know there are other everyday home designers who struggle in the same way I did with designing my own home, which is why I created a FREE resource titled "A Timeless Feeling Design Plan" that you can subscribe to on my website, House 214 Design.
