the stars at night, are big and bright, deep in the heart of texas...
but this one was just not bright enough in the kitchen. we hung it somewhere better.
and added a little color to the room...
we found the pretty plates in a cabinet
and the branch bowl in that spare room full of beautiful things...
maybe you already have everything you need to make your house your home in a kitchen cabinet or in a box in your attic. i hung my grandmother's china in my dining room and it makes me so happy. we moved it from one attic to another and never took it out of the box until we started over in north carolina.
you can do that you know...
the whimsical little slice of bread cutting board was another score from a cabinet.
we added a few more to create a collection.
they also hide unnecessary and ugly outlets. that's a fancy designer trick right there.
every room needs a little art. so we got him some.
and angela was sad not to see a cactus growing in dallas. who knew? so we got him one.
'cause you know. it's texas.
have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.
william morris and us
our client practices this lovely way of living. i thought we did too until i spent time in his home. so i spent the weekend after we got home with those big blue ikea bags on the floor of each room. i filled them with anything i do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. the lightness and freedom you feel after giving away everything that you do not need is euphoric.
it's an even higher high if you blast the red hot chili peppers while you purge.
giveitaway giveitaway giveitaway now...
sometimes the best way to love coming home is to live with less. not more.
christina for all
