The internet is an amazing resource when it comes to home décor and interior design. Don’t get us wrong, we love Pinterest and Instagram but (and we may be a bit biased here), we are partial to blogs for their ability to showcase in-depth information. Who doesn’t like learning something new?

The world is in a scary place right now. I’ll refrain from using the words “uncertain” and “unprecedented” because we’ve all heard them a little bit too much over the past few weeks.

 

The fact is, the news is constantly changing and it’s unclear when we’ll be able to control the coronavirus and COVID-19 outbreak.
