  1. Jamila, I love these tips. I want to transform an office to a sitting room, so these ideas will help to get me started. I especially love the colors that you chose.

  2. Thanks for the tips Jamila. I have been planning on doing all of these things for awhile. Reading your tips reminded me that I REALLY need to do so, for my mental health. Rug, plants, pictures… have all been on my to do list.

    I love the idea of switching out photos of folks as they get older. If they don’t want to do that, maybe they can have then and now photos. I also like switching colors for the seasons. That is a great idea. Take care — Roxanne e.

    1. Thanks for your input Roxanne. I have a room that I am just waiting to attack. This story was an inspiration and an incentive.

      Happy that Jamila will be sharing more.
