Chris and I definitely won't be able to live in a minimalistic house or anything, our collective hobbies require way too much stuff and space for that, but we want to pare down what we do have. We decided that instead of having three catch-all bowls (for change and keys and random stuff) that we bought just because they're cheap, we're going to find one that we really like, which may be a little more expensive than we'd normally pay for, but then we'll have a nice piece that will last instead of multiple crappy pieces. We hope to be able to replace one thing or set of things per paycheck, and over time we'll have a few really nice things instead of dozens of crappy things!
I also got inspired when I was at my sister's to liven up and really form a cohesive look for some of our main rooms by making throw pillows! I made one set in a black and white print that I don't think we'll end up using in the living room, but I made two with this modern gold flower print today and I'm absolutely in love with them!
I love this color scheme, and I think it'll be easy to use throughout the living room. I'm getting really excited about everything I'm planning on doing!
Chris and I definitely have an eclectic sense of design. We like to mix vintage stuff with modern pieces, and we do really love the "lived in" look, but I don't think that means we need piles of random stuff everywhere. What's your sense of style like? Do you stick to a theme in your home? Do you have any tips or tricks for home decor that you'd like to share with me??
