Home Decor

We think of our homes in very personal ways to express color, form,  dimension, and utilization.  Wall hangings, tabletop, bed, window, and floor coverings all add to our ideas of what is needed.  Our furniture may be practical or whimsical, or a combination.  Modern furnishings may suit our needs for functionality, but a need for more personalization may lead us to centuries-old paintings for example.  Whatever moves one to seek to transform a house into a home may be found here.
