and so it begins.
and so it begins…my favorite part about moving, is collecting inspiration for my new home — a small guest cottage in san francisco’s noe valley. the least favorite part being the dreaded packing. therefore, i hereby vow to live more simply. to declutter and purge, feel lighter and live better. that’s my plan, and i may need you to help me to stick to it. i saw this print, a butterfly in your house, by barbara berrada and it reminded me how much i do love the idea behind living with less. i own a home full of ‘stuff’ and most of it — in truth, a great deal of it — is never used. enough. time to come clean. here’s what’s inspiring me to move on with a much lighter load, carrying with me only those things that matter most.
a perfect butterfly chair, via stella harasek’s home.
i’m going to take along just a few of my favorite prints, via les zigouis; and i like the idea of playing music on my turntable more often, like this one pearched on a saarinen side table and the other via bostad erikolsson; and i had to have this classic Mid-Century Modern Plycraft Lounge Chair, via mid century modern finds.
a great combination living – dining area, via patric johansson photography.
i have this lovely well-lit room in the new place which is currently being used as an office. i’m going to turn it into a cozy dining area, a bit like this one photographed by patric johanssen.
i plan on having a fiddle leaf fig, like this one from the marion house blog; another lovely butterfly chair via erik olsson; and this is nice bright dining inspiration, too, this one photographed by trine thorsen.
