Letter From the Editor

Letter From the Editor

I love home, always have. There really is no place I would rather be most of the time. Just saying the word brings me peace. The phrase, “introverted extrovert” describes me perfectly – one who loves people and enjoys company, but needs a lot of alone time to thrive.  Sitting on my screened porch in the morning with a cup of coffee, meditating on the upcoming day, is my idea of true happiness. My little house is older, and the furnishings are mostly things that mean a lot to me, either family heirlooms or items found and restored to usefulness and (in my eyes) beauty. I love giving new life to old things. But the most important “thing” in my home is the peaceful feeling that surrounds me as soon as I walk through the door.

But recently I have noticed that it is way past time to spruce up my beloved nest, and I see paint, brushes and drop cloths in my near future. I’ve already picked up paint chips and started planning my new colors – I can’t wait to get started. There are so many fun choices now – should I chalk paint that old chest of drawers?  Add an accent color to one wall in the sun room? What color and fabric is best for the pillows on my porch furniture? Luckily for me our community has many experts to help with these and other decorating dilemmas. This month, Sasee is filled with advice on how to make the most of any decorating project, from how to choose a chandelier to what’s new and exciting in outdoor furnishings. I would love to hear about your upcoming DIY projects – drop me an email at lmoore@strandmedia.com!

Home isn't a Place, it's a feeling
