Your Haven, Your Home

By Brenda Landis, Signature HomeStyles

What emotions do you feel when you are in your home? Stress, Discontent, Frustration, or do you feel Peace, Calm and Happiness? No matter how you currently feel about your home, I am honored to help people make their homes beautiful and organized. As I am typing this my home looks a little battle weary and forgotten because I have been sick this past week. I am telling you this so that you know I am human and my home is certainly not perfect but I do have some great tips for making your home a place of peace.

Our homes are to be a place of peace for our families and for our guests. Last weekend I was in South Dakota for a Leader Retreat at my Signature HomeStyles sponsor’s home. She is a farm wife and her home is modest but relaxing and inviting. I determined that her home was so comfortable because it was beautifully but simply decorated with her favorite things. Pictures of her family, pillows and blankets on the couch to cuddle up in and everything was organized with no clutter. Did you know that clutter and disorganization can cause us stress? When we have to look for things we waste time and when we buy something we already have, because we can’t find it, we waste money. I am the most at peace when my home is clean and organized and I would imagine we can all relate to that.

After we control the clutter in our home it is so much fun to decorate the spaces around us. Look at the room and decide what you really love and what makes you smile. Those are the things you want to keep. Things that you no longer like or appreciate, take down and donate or sell. Give yourself permission to purchase something that you would LOVE! I am grateful that Signature HomeStyles products coordinate together making it easy to put together something that looks fabulous. What colors do you love, do you need new pillow covers for the pillows you have, what florals, lanterns. candles and baskets would look great in the room? Are you not even sure of how or where to start? Pick one room at a time and if I can help you, please let me know! I would be honored to help you make your home a haven of peace and beauty for you and your loved ones.

One of my favorite things about decorating with Signature HomeStyles is that we have products that remind us of what is important. Matthew 5:14 says “You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” Sharing my faith with others is important to me and Signature is run by a Christian Mother and her daughter who provide us with products that can also share our faith from the walls of our homes. This is one of the most important things I can do in this life, sharing the Love of Christ with others and letting my light shine! If I can help you in any way please feel free to contact me at or at my website at Blessings to you and yours!
