My home is decorated. When people come over, (like the man from Comcast today) I always get "oh this is very nice home! So nicely decorated.."

We don't live in a huge home, but didn't matter where we lived, our home was nicely decorated

I'm always surprised and grateful for the compliments of course, but it boggles me why people are so shocked when they come into our home..

I mean, do any of you decorate your home, or do you just have a home for comfort?

FYI: if your on a budget for nice home items, HOMEGOODS always has a nice clearance aisle, Target, Big Lots, Kirklands, The Family Dollar ( YES, the family dollar), Bells, Marshals, TJ Maxx, Ross, Tuesday Morning, and Stein Mart, all have great deals!

also ladies!! You get a LOT of ideas from pinterest, HGTV.com, and Google pictures!! Lol!! Seriously! Just type in what you're looking for.. Say "traditional living room" and click pictures(Google) Wa la! Lots of nice ideas!!! (:

We are more comfort I guess. I also have a son with autism and am afraid that he will break things when he gets upset so maybe when the kids get older we will decorate for us.

Home for comfort for now. Waiting until we move to a bigger place so I could get the sofas, etc I want.

We decorate it nothing fancy. We have 50's theme in our living room. The wall art is James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. We don't have enough money for a lot so most the furniture is just basics.
