Decor Advice from the Social Home Blog

Doesn't this picture look like it belongs in a design magazine?

Well - it's actually from an AMAZING Canadian design blog - belonging to the lovely and super-friendly Jen. As soon as I discovered Jen's blog The Social Home I fell in love - her DIY projects are unbelievable - and she's so resourceful. Check out her dollar store (!!!) pantry makeover - Martha Stewart couldn't have done it better!

As I clicked through her blog, I got the urge to email Jen and ask her for advice...My Design Project had lost steam - and I had NO idea what to do with my TV room - all I knew was that I didn't like how it looked - and I liked Jen's ideas A LOT.

So BLAH!

I don't usually email bloggers out of the blue LOL - but Jen couldn't have been nicer or more enthusiastic about helping me - what a sweetie! She put so much thought into my decor dilemna - click here to see her virtual redesign and here to see her DIY and sourcing recommendations. Here's a sneak peek of her virtual make-over:

Her posts were just the motivation I needed to get excited about my TV area. My first 2 priorities are finding a large piece of artwork and sourcing some of those gorgeous cushions - will definitely update here when I make progress!

Be sure to check out Jen's blog - it's SUCH a fun read and full of inspiring DIY ideas. She also has an etsy shop called the Paper Society which produces custom labels.

Are you ever amazed by the kindness of other bloggers?
