Good morning! Are you having a good week? Seeing some signs of Spring? I spoke to my mother in law yesterday and they had a half an inch of snow! We are having lots of rain but I guess that is to be expected, after all, April showers bring May flowers.
Consequently the rain and grey days are keeping me inside working, reading magazines and puttering around.
I am a huge fan of shelter magazines and subscribe to many; and then because I am convinced that I do not have enough to read I go to Barnes and Nobel and buy all my favorites from Britain and France. I love to see beautiful design, interesting homes, collection, art and more.
I obviously read blogs for the same reason. They are little treasure troves of information, about art, collections, decor, travel and more.
As I mentioned last week, my husband and I are “nesters” and although we love to travel our favorite place to be is at home.
After reading so many magazines this week I suddenly had this crazy thought that I would love to get rid of everything in the house and start again with something new.
I admire Swedish design, the clean lines and the painted furniture that Loi at Tone on Tone collects and features so beautifully on his blog. Then I fall in love each time I see images from Vicki Archer at French Essence of her beautiful flea market finds.
My style is collected, layered and eclectic. I love traditional and classic and modern and more.
What about you? Are you traditional? Modern? Collected? Mid-Century? Swedish? French?
Do you change things in your house often or do you let the layers, and treasures from your life and travels surround you? Have you ever just started over with a clean slate?
I really do not think I will be doing that any time soon as I do like my “stuff” and the memories each piece holds. But a girl can always dream can’t she?
Enjoy your day!
