    Its the time of year that many people want to entertain and decide to rethink their dcor. Its always festive to add that holiday feel to a home. If youre planning a visit to a few dcor shops for some quick-fix items such as pillows, bedding and various knick-knacks just before company comes, youre not alone. Its the quickest way to get into the spirit of things!

    If youre planning a renovation for next year, be sure to take your time and do it right. Unlike a quick dcor-fix, a rushed renovation project can go sour because of poor planning, high expectations or too much of a tight timeline and budget.

    Creating a home you love doesnt happen overnight. It can take months and even years yes, years! Ultimately, the homeowners have taken their time and enjoyed the process of selecting just the right furnishings and finishes, over time, on budget, and with spectacular results.

    I hope you will let us know what you think of this issue of Home Dcor & Renovations. Wed love to hear from you!
