sometimes, a greater impact can be made when you take things away. take art for instance — a single, simple piece of artwork can speak volumes all on its very own. its negative space can be jarring, and eye-catching all on its very own. and so affordable, too — one of something is less expensive than lots, right? i think starting small with something you truly love can be the best way to start collecting art, and if it never grows beyond that one precious piece, c’est la vie — it will speak to you, and in the end that’s all that really matters when it comes to something so subjective as art.

  1. This post couldn’t come at a better time for me. After a month long road trip in nature, I came home to a house i couldn’t stand! Too many things! I’ve spent this past week majorly decluttering and these photos are encouragement to keep going.. they are a gorgeous reminder of why LESS is more. I love what you said about the negative space around artwork. Thank you for your constant inspiration.

  2. I’m commenting on this post late (just found it on pinterest!). But I couldn’t agree more with the comment above! After a lovely time away at the beach, I was so claustrophobic upon my return home. I have done the same intense decluttering. Thank you for these lovely inspirational photos!!
