How I Can Help You
Thank you for visiting me on my blog! Without you being here, I wouldn’t be doing this! Or if I was, it would be like talking to a brick wall. Probably an unpainted, dark orange and brown brick wall too. It also wouldn’t be helping you make your home a better reflection of yourself, which I am passionate about.
A home should be a place of comfort for you. Your home should be your favourite place to be. The environment you’re in really does effects you and your day! Maybe you’re not sure how to go about making it suit your style. Or you aren’t even sure what your style is to personalize your home in that style. When you pick up a magazine for ideas you just get overwhelmed. After all, you’re constantly bombarded with images of beautiful homes, pristine and glistening in the sunlight, which make your own home feel inadequate. I want to help you embrace your space.
I’m here to give you tips and tricks to up your decorating game. I believe you can confidently decorate your own home with the right tools and knowledge. From decorating and organizing to understanding colour and styles, you’ll learn what I know to help you make your home the best possible fit for you.
About Sara-Lynn Houk
You may notice I occasionally spell things differently, colour/color being the most prominent on my blog, and it’s because I’m Canadian. I’m from a small city in Saskatchewan, Canada. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. That desire morphed into interior design. I went to college and became an Interior Design Technologist. I also achieved my Associate Kitchen and Bath Designer certification from the National Kitchen and Bath Association. And then the housing market dropped.
I went from designing new homes to sitting at a doctor’s reception desk. I managed to get back into the field as a salesperson for flooring and window coverings, where I’ve been happy to help people update their homes. From there, I have been able to get back on my feet and involved in decorating once more. I found my passion again, and with it, my voice.
I am an Interior Decorator, wife, Mom, and multi-passionate entrepreneur. It’s a far cry from the inexperienced, and uncertain young woman trying to fit into the design industry 10 years ago. I wear many hats, and I enjoy them all. You likely understand how easy it is to get carried away with the ideas and plans running through your head. My husband is good at bringing me back down to earth to focus and make those ideas come about. He’s my strength, support, and my center. I make the goals and he keeps me in check!
I hope what I say resonates with you and gets you comfortable enough to take risks and explore your decorating style so you can truly personalize your home.
Well, that’s a summary of the Inspired Decorator and what my goal is in serving you.
