The Wonderful World of Whimsy

by on ‎05-02-2012 04:38 PM

Hi friends. I’m really looking forward to spending time with you during the month of May as You’re Home with Jill becomes a weekly program. Our team has worked hard to find new products to decorate your home, new innovations to make living at home more fun, and new ideas on how to use home décor in a different way.

To kick things off I want to share what I think is one of the most important things you can add to your home…a touch of whimsy. Just saying the word whimsy makes you smile, doesn’t it? It’s that touch of the unexpected in your home décor…be it a clever shape to a table, an interesting texture on a pillow, or even an unconventional color combination. These are the things that'll make your home unique and give you a smile as you live in your space.

We spend so much time picking out the right paint colors for our walls, the right shape and size for a sofa, the perfect finish for our floors. But when you’re really living at home, do you look at that paint color three years later and find yourself grinning? I’m going to guess the answer is no. However, what happens to your spirit when you see that funky lamp you picked up at a flea market or the cute bunny salt and pepper shakers you leave out all spring? I already know the answer, don’t you? You look at it and think, “I just love those things.” And you should. You know that saying about how the little things mean the most? That’s why you need a touch of whimsy…a little touch of happiness to fill your heart and your home every day you look around.

I wanted to help you find some new whimsical things in our first show, so be on the lookout for ways to use candles, gardenscapes, and new bedding to create a fresh look to love. And if you’re in the mood for a project, be sure to check out my video blog to see how polka dots and pottery might inspire a new color story in your home.

I can’t wait to spend the month of May together. So tune in every Thursday at 10am ET. Think of me as your new neighbor for the month, and know that the door is open and you’re always welcome!
