I have also discovered I may have a new talent. I'm becoming a storage solution master. Moving from a big home to a small bungalow has it's space challenges. My hubby has been hard at work putting together many a unit so we can live comfortably. The irony is, we feel more organized then we ever have. How is this possible? It's been a 15 year cleansing (which is still happening) and we are trying to live only with what we: LOVE, NEED, USE. I have been wanting to do this for a long time and it feels like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders (and I'm hoping that will translate into a 5 pound weight loss for me too...ha, ha).
So, here are a few pics of inspiration that I have had for our new little love home and when I get this place a little more spruced up I'd love to share photos and tips as I learn.
First tip: if you have natural light - paint white. I painted the main floor (which is basically where we do all our living) a warm white and it created flow, light and airiness where every person who has come in has said how open and light it feels...music to my design obsessed ears!

|Looking at this picture again I realize my bedroom does reflect some of this. Wall sconces, light bedding, texture.|
