I’m on Pinterest and Houzz daily and my social media newsfeeds are usually drowning in posts from home decor and interior design magazines and bloggers. Occasionally I’ll stumble upon a bed with an outlandish headboard or a bedroom with a very specific theme (think Extreme Home Makeover) and I’ll wonder to myself, “What are you going to do in a few years when you don’t like the decor anymore?

So you like the way a bed looks but do you know which is right for you?

Gone are the days where everything was simple. Remember when everything was paid for in cash, you could only watch shows when they were on TV and you had to use a map when traveling somewhere new?

We always put so much focus on the tabletop, but what about those legs?

I’m a perfectionist by nature and attention to detail has always been something I pride myself on. That being said, it can make doing things, like shopping for a new dining table, a challenge sometimes.
