Home Decorating

We recently relocated to a new city and purchased an big beautiful older style home. The house has a lot of great character that we were able to accent with our own accessories to turn it into our home. Luckily we have been through a few moves now so we have had the opportunity to decorate a new home a few times so we really knew what we wanted to do this time around.
We wanted to improve the decor of the outside of our home and needed to upgrade a few things. We are lucky to have a fantastic yard with a beautiful big apple tree that really added character to the back yard so we needed to focus on the entry and front yard area first. One factor was deciding on whether we wanted to look at wall mount mailboxes or curbside mail boxes it was a challange because of beautiful selection of boxes available.
To increase our curb appeal we also looked into an assortment of curbside decorations to add some "pop" to our front yard. The final touch was to replace the tired old house number as we were recently re addressed for the 911 system so we had to shop the selection of Address Plaques to put the final touch on our home.
