WHILE BLAIR EDMAN’S OHIO HOME is a beautifully curated winter wonderland, she considers herself somewhat new to home decorating. “We bought our home in June of 2016, and for the first two years we lived here I didn’t really decorate,” she says. “I liked looking at all the amazing homes on Instagram and Pinterest, but I didn’t think I had it in me to do that.”
When Blair started antiquing, though, everything began to change. “By November of 2018 I had created my home décor Instagram page and started changing things in my home to look more curated,” Blair says. She and her husband, a carpenter, began bringing the 1987 home into alignment with Blair’s developing style, which she describes as eclectic. “I try to incorporate different styles that I love and make them mesh well together,” Blair says. Paint, shiplap and new light fixtures created a solid base for her to develop her aesthetic. “As time went by, my style evolved, my confidence in my design choices grew, and now I simply buy and decorate for what makes me and my family happy,” she says.

HOW TO MAKE WINNING DECISIONS
G-Men return to The Queen City
Joe Judge’s team will be faced with a difficult test when they travel to Cincinnati to take on 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the Bengals. After finishing with the league’s worst record in his first season as a head coach, Zac Taylor now appears to have his team heading in the right direction. The Giants must put a lot of pressure on Burrow and keep him in the pocket in this matchup. The first overall pick in this year’s draft is having an impressive rookie season and has already torched plenty of defenses so far in 2020. Offensively, Daniel Jones needs to take advantage of the vulnerabilities in the Bengals’ secondary. This area of their defense is not exactly their strongest, so Jones should take some deep shots with Darius Slayton and Golden Tate. With Cincinnati drafting Burrow, it appeared as though veteran A.J. Green could be in position for a huge bounce-back season. However, Tyler Boyd has really emerged as the top receiving option in the Bengals’ offense. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham must have a good game plan for taking Boyd away. Here are TGI’s keys to victory against Cincinnati:
