{channeling} simple home...





Goodmorning! This past weekend I came across the book Simple Home by Mark and Sally Bailey and I absolutely love it. It talks about keeping your home relatively simple by decorating right down to the basics, with carefully chosen furniture and accessories you truly love. For some this may be a little too plain, but I'm definitely one for the neutrals. My place still needs those little extras though to make it a little more lived-in, but a bit of a french touch can do wonders! I love the idea of an overall white room, with bedding that has a classic striped edge, or a comfy couch stacked with soft, woolen blankets. It's all about that one statement piece and keeping everything else relatively simple. And i'm sure we'd all benefit from a little less clutter, right?

Can't wait to share more from this fabulous book, it's worth a read - and especially a look!

These are stunning, simply so. I love this philosophy and wish I could live like this. Unfortunately, I also love color and stuff and tend to veer in that direction. But the beauty and appeal of these serene spaces can not be denied. Especially that last shot, just gorgeous.

these spaces are beautiful. unfortunately, i end up surrounding myself w/more clutter than i'd like, but i'd love to strive for spaces like these.

After living in Europe for most of last year, I have become very inspired by the lack of excess in European homes. Seriously, you will never find a European family who would qualify for Hoarders…In particular, I like the way the Italians live- they keep their homes minimal, but the things they do put in their homes are beautiful and true works of art and craftsmanship…So, I have started off this year by cleaning out all of my stuff, and donating and selling what I do not want to keep around…I think it’s good way to live & the concept of that book sounds like it preaches the same idea. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.
