“Yes You Can” is a weekly column where I remind you to trust your great taste and take action: in your decorating, your wardrobe, your beauty routine, and beyond.
I kick off this column every week with (a.) a quotation to encourage you, followed by (b.) my top decorating and style tips from the week, (c.) decorating and style ideas around the web, and (d.) my favorite finds to save you money and time.
