Two blogs I am constantly turning to for inspiration these days are Jenny Steffens Hobick and Julie Blanner. There spaces are uncluttered but not austere, and there are no jarring color combinations. The pattern play is good but not distracting and everything seems purposeful. Loving it.
The first group are all from Everyday Occasions by Jenny Steffens Hobick.
Julie Blanner's home is the epitome of calm as well.
I am beginning to figure out that our lives may never get less crazy than they are now but our home (even as a work in progress) can be just the sanctuary we need.
