Hello friends! Today is an exciting day in the life of this blog.
A new name.
A move to a new place on the web has me so excited about this next chapter in the blog. I’d like to officially introduce you to Decor Fix and tell you a bit more what you can expect in the future.
WHAT’S WITH THE NEW NAME?
The name and focus of The Lovely Cupboard (RIP) was based around the recipes I created when I started blogging. Since then the focus of the blog has changed, and I thought the name should too.
The name Decor Fix has a double meaning…On one hand it reflects my approach to working with clients. I try to offer functional design solutions for their homes and will be sharing some of those “fixes” with you here.
The second meaning has to do with the fact that I’m a decor addict.
Everyone gets their “fix” somehow.
Mine usually comes when I snatch up a new set of throw pillows on sale or stay up until 2am rearranging my living room…while drinking wine and eating Raisinets. (Yes, it’s a combo worth trying.)
WHAT ARE THE NEW FEATURES?
–E-Decor Page: This page explains the virtual design services I offer for my clients living anywhere in the U.S. as well as the 3 packages I offer.
–Design Tips Page: Here you’ll find my tips and trends to watch. (Look for much more to come soon!) Also you can check out home tours on this page.
–Projects Gallery: All of my DIY projects, crafts, soirees are categorized, so you can find what you need faster.
-Updated About Page: If you’re curious.
*Easier commenting: Now that I’m on WordPress (wootwoot!) it will be faster for you to comment, and easier for me to respond to you via email.
WHAT WILL YOU BLOG ABOUT?
I have an entire notebook full of ideas and posts to show you how to decorate your home with confidence. Regular columns will include:
–How To’s & Tips
–My design work (some local and a lot of E-Decor)
–Design trends and how to use them in your home
-A few DIY projects and pretty soirees
-The occasional ramble about our family, this blog, or being a mom.
WHO’S THE WEB GURU BEHIND THE SWITCH?
I hit the jackpot when I connected with Lisette of High Note Designs. I cannot sing her praises enough. We bonded immediately because we were both teachers who now work freelance in creative fields.
I have worked with a handful of web designers the last four years, and she has been the most AMAZING to collaborate with. She took my sketches and coded them into a virtual reality. Also she handled the transfer of old content, the URL redirection, and even migrating the blog from Blogger to WordPress. (Note to any bloggers: I flippin’ love WordPress. If you are still on Blogger and considering the switch to WordPress, DO IT. Do it now and call Lisette to help.)
WHAT ABOUT THE OLD RECIPE POSTS?
I’ve received a couple emails about old recipes that are no longer available. (Sorry Sarah and Laura!) A lot of the recipes were brought over, but some were not. You can see a list of my favorites at the bottom of the Projects Gallery.
I have some fun projects coming up this fall that I can’t wait to share with you. Also, I’ll be doing some collaborations with shops like Minted, Home Goods, and West Elm that I’ll keep you posted about. I’m already planning some goodies for the holidays too. (Don’t hate me.)
If you receive email updates (RSS feed), you should still be receiving those from the new blog. If you like to devour your favorite blogs at one spot, you can also find me on Bloglovin’. (While most of you follow me via email, Bloglovin’ really is a great tool to get one email and feed of all the blogs you love in one spot. It’s what I use everyday.)
Let’s Be Social!
-To see what things I’m loving lately, follow me on Pinterest.
-To see behind the scene pics of projects, my finds, and a bit of the family, follow me on Instagram.
-To post your decor questions, project pics, or see what I’m up to “Like” Decor Fix on Facebook.
-Oh, and I’m (occasionally) on Twitter…tweet, tweet.
If you know a friend who’s into the same stuff we are (homes, affordable decor, DIY), I will send you a virtual cupcake if you could let them know where I live on the web.
Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or this is your first visit, I really, really, really appreciate each one of who choose to spend a few minutes of your day here…Even if you’ve never commented, I hope you still feel connected and know that it means a lot to me that you’re reading. Please feel free to shoot me an email anytime with thoughts or questions.
I’ll be back on Thursday with my tips for styling abstract artwork. Chat soon!
