Getting Up and Around: JoAnne's Rotunda

JoAnne had a problem. Her gorgeous home has a rotunda! Most of us don't have a whole lot of extra space in our homes, much less a rotunda. As you can imagine, it's difficult to decorate a space with rounded walls. JoAnne was feeling a little stuck about how to proceed when we met at her friend's Uppercase Living party. 

During my demonstration, I mentioned that our expressions can fit rounded objects such as vases, wine glasses or candle holders. All of a sudden, JoAnne realized that she had found the solution for decorating her rotunda. It took her some time to choose the perfect expression for the space, and then a little more time to actually apply it after it arrived. A few accessories and narrow frames holding photos of her adorable boys fill the space below the expression, which unifies the space and fits the curved wall beautifully. Now not only do JoAnne and her family have a beautiful space to enjoy, but visitors to their home are greeted with a lovely foyer and a warm, welcoming expression that describes this sweet family perfectly.

If you have a space in your home that's a decorating challenge, don't give up on it! Let me help you brainstorm a solution that you may not have thought possible. Like my friend, JoAnne, you could end up with a unique result that's as enjoyable for you as it is welcoming to your guests.
