A few vignettes from around our home. Someone on instagram recently asked if our place is always as neat and tidy as it appears. Truthfully, the answer is usually, but only because we're both clutter-phobic.
I've found that when my surroundings evoke a sense of order, my mind tends to follow suit.
So, we try.
At the end of the day, I want my home to be welcoming, warm, colorful, cozy, and personal. It's as simple as that. And hey: if it happens to be a day when a mug pile-up threatens to take over the coffee table, I remember that it's also a home that is undeniably lived in.
