Decorating With Less blog is a home decorating and DIY site  focused on sharing with others my home decorating experience, projects and advice. The hope is to inspire others in the areas of interior design, home decorating, and do it yourself projects. Decorating With Less is a blog written and managed by Matthew Iacopelli.  All content on this website is protected by copyright and unless otherwise stated, all images, text, and/or other content posted on this website are owned by Decorating With Less.  The intention of the Decorating With Less blog is to share creative and inspiring content and not intended to insult, offend or otherwise discourage other parties.

Compensation and FTC Disclosure

As the writer of the Decorating With Less blog, I do, on occasion, accept compensation for advertising, sponsorship, and sponsored posts, as well as occasional compensation to provide my opinion (which is always 100% my own) on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I may be paid for posts or advertisements,  my views and opinions are 100% honest.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider, or 3rd party.I use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit this blog. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

Some affiliate relationships with companies are in place at times, as well.  Affiliate programs offer compensation to me when a visitor from Decorating With Less clicks through to either sign up, purchase, and/or participate in a company offer or program.  No one is required to participate if they do not wish.

Sponsors & Affiliates

With all the content and inspiration I share, I do need to make a few bucks, so on the right sidebar of all pages, I have a Sponsors section which includes businesses personally endorsed by Decorating With Less for the quality of merchandise and/or services.   Sponsors pay a monthly rate to appear in the websites sidebar and if interested, your business can be there too!  If you’re interested, please contact me and your business will be evaluated and accepted on relevance to the design and the products you offer.  I am so grateful for my Sponsors – they keep me going!

Ads & Ad Networks

Areas around the Decorating With Less site, including the right side bar, above the header, and at the bottom of regular posts, you will see network ads by Google and third-party advertising companies.  These companies may use information (not including your name, address email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.  These ads often pertain to affiliates in the design field, but not always.  Unfortunately, I don’t have control over what ads appear, but if something is completely ridiculous or you think should be blocked, I’d love for you to let me know.
