  1. Thanks for sharing this with you followers. I am excited to be there this weekend. Never been to San Diego – so it’s a welcome visit for me. I hope we get lots of homeowners coming to the event on Sunday. Plus, everyone that comes gets a free copy of my book NO PLACE LIKE HOME and I’ll sign them. If you want creative home advice – also bring a few images of a room in your home that needs a refresh…I’ll give you some tips!

    Have a great day everyone…

  2. As a professional organizer, I tend to recommend IKEA a lot! I love the clean, simple ideas listed here for quick change ups that make the room feel inviting, designed and organized! I loved the use of baskets under the coffee table to store toys and other items you don’t want cluttering up your floor everyday. I love patterns and colors used too as they brighten up the room making it more attractive. I think I need a weekend trip to IKEA for some new accessories! Thanks for the tips.
