I'm sure many of you have read Nester's simplifying posts these past few days.
I think they were just what I needed.

Sometimes I look at a space and just have a crazy urge to fill it with something, anything.
Then later I look around and I don't like the flow of all the "randoms" mixed together.
I desire for my rooms to be purposeful.
Which is why I cleared the mantle, the sofa table, and other areas of our family room.

My decorating mind needed to take a deep breath before deciding what I want in each space.

Here are a few things that I know now...

I want to add more natural color to our family room. 
The colors need to come from nature, in plants and colors from botanical prints, for starters.

I would love a boxwood wreath for the side of the armoire.

Botanical prints in simple gold frames, 2 or 3 on each side of the armoire.
Emily A. Clark found a book full of them and they look fabulous in her dining room!

That's where I am currently. I love nature and all of its beautiful elements.
My new mission is to incorporate more of it into our home!
And I am sure there will be more to come on this later...


  1. I love the boxwood wreath idea and you mirror is gorgeous! I want.

  2. Taking everything out of a space is a great way to clear your mind about what you want in a space! Love the idea of botanical prints!

  3. I LOVE to simplify!!! It feel so great!!!
