    As always I love your suggestions, thank-you! Even with my small budget I can follow these ideas, that is awesome. Too often decorating ideas are more costly can I could ever do and that is depressing. I now have my photos and art at all different heights with the thought it wouldn’t be boring but, I now see the reason for eye height.

  3. I think one of the most important tips you provided was lighting. Sometimes people think the overhead house lights are enough, but they usually aren’t. The first house we purchased was so dim, I had to add recessed lights to make it livable.
