This is the first non-vacation weekday in around 20 years that I haven't HAD to wake up early to go into work. I'm aiming for a life change here but on this slow moving Monday morning I'm dreaming I'm here. And I'm much closer to it than usual!
So we have already covered maximalism, and recently I mentioned that I am feeling the need to purge, but . . . . . I have come across this image several times recently on Pinterest
and just discovered the full apartment tour on One King's Lane (all photos from there).
I know it is by no means minimalist, but I love how collected it feels and that it's sophistacted and wordly without seeming decorated. Love the unapologetic fullness of it. You just know life would have to be interesting lived in a space sooooo full of the personality of the owners!
I have mentioned before that I love new beginnings and fresh starts. Part of the reason I love fall is because it reminds me of back to school and the delicious feeling of starting over. And I love the New Year and purging and organizing. Or I did until I married someone born in January, and then had a child VERY early in January. And then another in early February. So now it's more about survival for the first 6 weeks of the year rather than contemplation and editing and refining. So I am finally coming up for air now and starting to think about getting things together, and cleaning out some closets, and making sure our current organizational strategies are working. And then when I happened to glance at my weekly horoscope I found that this week I should be clearing out and letting go to make room for fresh! How apropos! AND, I recently discovered The Home Edit on Instagram and need to share some of their beautifully composed spaces. All pictures from their website.
Maybe I will be able to carve out some time soon to get to work on my own house, but until then I'll continue to collect inspiration from their Instagram!
