Deco Book Club: Meeting #4

After a brief summer hiatus, our deco book club had another meeting of the minds. We have all been on a huge decorating kick with so much activity it’s really quite impressive. As you may recall, we have been using Jill VegasSpeed Decorating to guide us through our non-traditional book club. Each month we are tackling different projects in our home trying to refine our décor into a more suitable individual style.
