My Makeover

Whilst I’ve been away enjoying myself, the fairies have been giving my blog a makeover.

Firstly, I decided after blogging for 18 months and writing some 170 plus posts, the name Inside Out Colour and Design Blog was a bit cumbersome. You see that is my business name and at them time I couldn’t think of anything better. So after having time to reflect I have decided to be henceforth known as Decorum!

Choosing names is so much harder than choosing paint colours, I think. When I started my business I wanted a name that didn’t need an explanation. As I am both an Interior Decorator AND a Colour Consultant and I choose colours for both inside and outside, I needed something that said as much. It’s a bit of a mouthful, and many people get writer’s cramp when I tell them my email address but I figure it works as a descriptive title.

I also wanted to add a little of me to the header I wanted it to reflect my personal style so I engaged the very talented Caitlin McGauley to design an artwork that typifies me and what I’m about. A couple of emails later and this is the fabulous painting that now sits at the top of my blog.

I also wanted to use bigger images. For me it’s all about the images as I am a very visual person and think most people that read a design blog also want to see more images than text. Do you agree?

I also write a monthly newsletter which is completely different from my blog posts. I try to give more indepth details on styles, colours and decor for your home. If you don’t receive one, you can sign up here.

So a million thank yous to the ladies behind my makoever and also to you my readers for dropping by and leaving comments.
