A Guide to Non-Serious Decor

I'm a big believer in taking life in stride, and in doing so, keeping it as non-serious as possible. Proof? Non-serious is decidedly a non-word.

Anyway, life is much, much too short to spend it holed up in a tightly-wound household, yes? Naturally, I like to keep t How Do I Get My Ex Girlfriend Back That I Love hings light, bright, airy and fun, and I'd imagine lovers of the following images would feel very much the same way:

Case in point? A fresh coat of paint in gazillions of colors is sure to brighten up any average staircase. It's the perfect non-permanent way to be non-serious.

No headboard? No problem. A whimsical approach to a bedroom staple shows that you don't have to spend a ton to get the look. In fact, I much prefer this flat alternative to the real thing, and it's perfect for tiny bedrooms that would suffer from added bulk.

And, of course, last but not least, work with what you've already got. Instead of displaying your books in any old fashion, get crafty and make a statement. Not only will you brighten up your home, but the creative display will make you look worlds more organized than you already are. ;)

Happy decorating!
