How to avoid BORING design

I love this question. It's a bit controversial--trends are fun, but when we all do them it gets boring for sure. Plus, not all homes come with unique character.

As fun as it is to follow decor trends and see them popping up at affordable price points, there’s something really special about putting in the time and thought to create a home that reflects you and your family. In today’s episode of the Your Home Story podcast, we walk you through different ideas to help you create a home that truly is one of a kind.
