Living in Florida is a blessing and a curse. No matter how hard we try to keep up with trends, the Southern climate helps us return to our roots – comfort. If you don't believe me, let's talk about kitchen decorating!

Natural fabrics were very popular this year but they also brought back memories of grandma's quilt. If you don't care for Southwestern decor, you will love this trend. All homes have personal character that need to be shown. Why not add some floral accents in your white cabinets? No one can deny the elegance of exposed wood beams.

Let's talk about table decorating! The key to a classic appeal is old-fashioned floral arrangements. They bring a warm and cozy feel to any room.

Southern style home decorating is all about using what you have in an elegant way! It's time to update your bathroom decor. Just because you want the Victorian look doesn't mean it has to be gloomy or dark.

Simply paint your walls light colors and add floral lace curtains. The lace curtains catch the sunlight and brighten your bathroom!

There are simple ways to decorate your bedroom without sacrificing comfort. If you love the Victorian style, but want some color, try adding a few pillows with a floral pattern.

If you don't like floral patterns on your walls, try it on your dresser or nightstands. What's great about Southern style home decorating is that you can mix and blend a variety of styles to create your own unique space!

Just remember that you don't have to sacrifice comfort for elegance. Just keep it simple, elegant, and comfortable but never dark or gloomy!
