Show Off & Inspire - Our Fifth House

Today you are in for such a treat, Carmel at Our Fifth House is just about the cutest thing in blogland, and her personality is so cute and funny.  She always gives me a chuckle with her dialog and her decorating style is fabulous.  She uses color and pattern to perfection giving her home character with a capital C.  It is amazing to see how she uses bold colors in such a way that they just embrace you instead of scream at you.  I love everything and I know you will too.

 Hello Stroll Thru Lifers!  I'm Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I'm thrilled to be here today.  Thanks so much for inviting me over Marty! 

I started my blog on a whim back in the fall of 2010, and I've been blogging.........and decorating...............and blogging about decorating ever since.  Although, I really don't know what you would call my decorating style.  




Sarcastic maybe?  Yes, sarcastic suits me well.  ;) 

What I strive to do on my blog is to inspire people to rock their own personal styles in their homes.  Because if we all decorated the exact same way life would be boring and why in the world would we want to read diy decor blogs anyway?! 

At Our Fifth House, you'll find bold color.........

thrifted treasures.........

organization projects.........

with a few real life stories thrown in............ because I wholeheartedly believe that home isn't a's a state of being. 

I hope you pop over to visit sometime!  Thanks again Marty for welcoming me over to your place!  

See, didn't I tell you how fabulous her bold colors are.  Doesn't it just make you want to go paint a room red or dark blue?  You really don't want to miss a single post so rush over and click that  follow button.  Thanks so much Carmel for letting me Show You Off and Brag a little about you.

  1. Thanks Marty for featuring Carmel and her lovely home. I love that she does not have any one style just does what she loves. I think when you decorate with what you love that is your style!!! Love her use of bold color. Very beautiful.
