This summer, my kids and I moved into a new home. One of the best parts of that move was creating the new space in a way that reflects who we are. A good friend of mine once told me that the rooms in your house will reflect where you are in a given moment of time. I agree, which is probably a good argument for updating your decor every few years or so as styles change, but also as you change.
In any case, the result of this process is what distinguishes a house from a home. Learning to create harmony in the furnishings, colors and displays of items which are joyful takes practice and patience. However, when it is achieved, it makes the home feel comfortable and inviting.
I am the first to admit that creating this harmony is a challenge for me. I struggle to allow each room to express itself, and I am impatient. I like things to be done, and I don’t always want to wait patiently for the essence of a room to speak. Selfishly, I wanted to have Wendy Eden present at one of our Unselfish Sundays events this year so that I could pick up some ideas on how to make this new house feel like a home. I also wanted her to speak because I know she will give everyone some tips that will be useful.
Wendy’s company, Harmonizing Your Home, specializes in organizing, decorating and creating good energy flow in your living spaces.

Services include professional organizing, senior move management, real estate staging and soon photo organizing.
