The Decorologist is in the Houzz

I didn’t start this blog because I was a writer, or because I longed to write.  I started this blog because I was bursting with ideas and thoughts that I wanted to put down somewhere, to document them, to share with whoever might be willing to listen.

Sometimes I’m surprised by the attention The Decorologist (the blog, not the person) gets – the contacts I make with people is kinda astounding, especially when it brings unexpected opportunities.  If you are addicted to design and decorating and/or read design blogs, you have probably heard of  Houzz.com.

 

Houzz is the internet’s largest database of design and decorating ideas – it’s an amazing site full of inspirational rooms by over 60,000 top designers.   Way before Pinterest, Houzz gave us a way to collect images in ideabooks for reference when remodeling and decorating our homes.  They also provide awesome articles about how to make your home look fabulous.

Houzz contacted this little ol’ Nashville decorator a couple of months ago about writing some of those awesome articles for their site, and today my first article debuts!  It’s the first in an eight-part series about how to create a specific mood or feeling in a room.  This series is going to be chocked full of my best tricks-of-the-trade, the first one focusing on how to make a small room feel larger.  I guarantee if you follow my advice, you can add visual square footage to any room!

So here’s the link: http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/2212033/list/Mood-Makers–Small-Rooms–Spacious-Feel

This is not the title that I came up with – I’m seeing that I’m going to have to give up a little control because of editing and all that jazz.  It would be great if you left a comment on the article or add any tips you have for making a space feel bigger.  Me, a paid writer?  Who knew!

Kristie, Congratulations!! This is an excellent way of broadening your reach. I have looked at Houzz before when my husband subscribed to it in his IPAD, but didn’t realize that there were articles to read. Your approach IS right where we all live(or want to). Yes, I know that frequently the rooms are tidy up compared to “real life”, but truly, why do those of us who love to see these images seek them anyway? Is it not to aspire to a better way of living—cleanly and uncluttered? Your examples set the bar higher and that’s what I aspire to.… Read more »

Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who genuinely understands what they
are talking about over the internet. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More people should look at this and understand
this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my
thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
or hints? Appreciate it!
