Where did the decorating 'phenomenom' begin?
Was it HGTV as well as other decorating channels ~TLC/Discovery~where it all started? I know I always had 'an interest', but while watching such programs, seemed to have an awakening, or maybe it was an epiphany. I had a subscription to Better Homes and Gardens for years(were there other decorating mags at the time?)then in later years came Traditional Home and House Beautiful. After awhile, magazines didn't seem like enough, so I started buying books 'just for the pictures'~my 'collection' is now 100+ books!
I've 'gone thru' three condos and am now in a house since it all started, with each one honing in on my style to the point where I *think* i've finally 'got it'. I'm very happy in my surroundings and feel my home certainly expresses who I am, but feel I want to keep going down the decorating path.
I've been in my home for four years, have changed very little, and am wondering if there's a time when things should be changed up a bit. Not furniture, but accessories, etc. Is it necessary if you feel you're perfectly happy with the way things are and have been for a number of years? I don't want my home to become stale. ;o)
