Home Decor Interview:
Straight from the heart of America's automobile belt comes Bella Casa, a housewife from Michigan who loves her home, loves her blog (Bella Casa), and loves to blog about her home.
We are very excited to have Bella with us today, and this holiday season she is in our thoughts. There is some bad news: her husband Velo was recently told that his company is going to cease operations for a month during the holidays. Velo works for a robotics company that is heavily dependent upon the auto industry. With the recent credit crisis wreaking havoc on the auto industry, Bella has been personally affected by this at the worst possible time, and our thoughts and wishes go out to her and her family. My husband was laid off just weeks after we got married, so I know how stressful this can be.
We know Bella and her strong family bond will get her through these tough times. Today we will shift gears and try to talk with Bella about a more pleasant subject: home decor.
Bella is a student of home decor blogging; she reads all that she can and takes the very best ideas and applies them to her own home. At the end of the day, isn't that what all of us are here to do too??
Let's pick Bella's brain and step inside her home for awhile. Enjoy the interview!
Bella Casa, Decorating on a Budget, Darnit! blog is my pride and joy, but also my therapy! It's so nice to connect with my readers and other bloggers about the joy of decorating, finding a great garage sale find or just the right paint color...all on a small budget. We also share laughter and friendship and just a connection that I can't really explain, it's just 'there'.
2. Your blog is about your lovely home in Detroit, Michigan. However, your bio says that it took a few years for you to really get excited about your home. Was it the home itself that you didn't like at first, or was it the fact that you moved so far away from friends and family?
4. You recently published a post about your husband Velo, who works as an electrician. What does your husband think about your decorating hobby, and do he or your sons show any signs of sharing your knack for home décor?
Our sons get excited when we paint a room, they love to see the new color on the walls. My younger son is very much into decorating with his mom though, he's a little Ty Pennington in the making!
5. Pictures of your son's room proudly adorn your blog. In reality, how much say did you have in his décor and how much say did he have? How did he feel about Mom getting involved with redecorating his room?
I was amazed by your "Oh So Pretty Candy Dish Project," in which you took some
items from garage sales, added some creativity, and designed a beautiful candy
Thanks so much to Bella for taking the time to interview with us at a very difficult time. Please stop by and visit her Bella Casa blog today to meet Bella and her lovely family.
