For those of you who have worked with me one on one, you know firsthand that the beginning of a project is all about removing the STUFF that is in the way of creating peace, balance and purpose in your home. Simplicity is a key component of both beauty and peace. Remembering to keep open spaces where the eye can rest is so important, and then keeping only a few things that you truly love in the space to make it beautiful. Let’s take a deep cleansing breath, and I will give you an example.
Remember, IN THROUGH THE NOSE....PAUSE... OUT THROUGH THE MOUTH......
I don’t know if I could find a better example of what not to do if your goal is creating a restful, nurturing home. Not only does this room inflict visual fatigue, but just imagine the dusting! You'll find more pictures of this room, as well as other witty and wonderful posts on one of my favorite blogs Hooked on Houses.
