view of my neighborhood
Moving house is not for the faint hearted... and the longer you've been there, the harder it is to let go. But with all the chaos, organizing and sorting comes the opportunity for new beginnings and the chance to truly evaluate what you're carrying with you in your most intimate space. When you're a sentimental person like me, it's easy to end up justifying what you hold on to, so you end up carrying things with you that you never spend any time with, in fact even forget about until you move again! Although emotionally taxing, it's always a great time to truly sit with those items and be honest with yourself, "Why am I holding onto this"? And if I choose to, "how can I make this more than just storage?" The hardest part is when you know it no longer serves a purpose and it calls for you to let go... Or alternatively you could end up ignoring all of it and end up appearing on the latest season of this show. :) - believe me I've thought about it!
However it's not just the physical stuff I'm talking about, it's also the emotional stuff that ends up collecting in your home. Patterns, habits, ways in which you interact with your life within these walls - what do you want to leave behind in that regard and what do you want to bring with you?
With my move in date just around the corner I'm suddenly yearning for new sheets, new pillows, tables and chairs, a whole new revamp on my taste and style. If only I had the pocket book to match my new found inspiration! I thought I'd share with you some of the things I'm swooooning over! :)
nothing like a tree stump side table to add some organic earthiness to your space
I love this chunky heather gray pebble rug against almost any wooden floorboard; be it beach wood, white washed or dark wood.
There's nothing like sheer window treatments to add an element of easy breezy living. If you live in colder climates it will definitely not be as economical during those winter months but in moderate temperatures? Yes please!
fabulous accent pillows
Can you believe all of this came from West Elm?! You guys have outdone yourselves!
