Have you seen Joanna Gaines new book, Home Body, yet? It's full of beautiful full-color images of many of her projects. She explains how she chooses decorative items to create special meaning throughout their home. She explains how she doesn't rush to fill up empty rooms. Instead, she takes her time and waits for the needs and desires to arise. She said, "I came upon the large antique clock that was missing the hour and minute hands. It now hangs on the wall above the sofa, and to me, it symbolizes grace in our day-to-day life and that time at home is never wasted. I love how it helps to tell our story as you move from the entryway to the heart of our home."
This is what decorating with intention is all about and this is how you create your soul's oasis. What items do you have in your home that you can look at from a different perspective? A broken clock? No reason to discard it. Hang it in a place you pass by often so that every time you look at it, you're telling yourself a really great story that fills you with joy.
