BRS and I are looking to put our house on the market sometime this summer/fall. It’s kind of bittersweet. This was our first home and it’s sad to think of leaving this little space where we’ve shared our beginnings as husband and wife. On the flip side, I feel pretty ready to get ourselves in a new place that I can do some major redecorating. There are so many things I would love to invest in and do in our current home, but I find zero motivation to put a lot of money toward interior decorating projects when we’ll likely be leaving soon.
With the weather warming up I’ve had the itch to do some major cleaning out and simplifying to make sure that whatever we take to another space is stuff I really love. I’ve spent the past few weekends doing major de-cluttering and trashing things I don’t need or use. It’s awesome to now to have such fresh, clear spaces…it almost feels new!
My office space had become a huge catch-all and I had lost my desire to work in there. In order to make my space more inviting again I had to get rid of a lot of junk and face my craft-hoarding issues. BRS had been on me about it for months but I finally got my booty in gear!
Remember this little guy? Still makes me smile!
Clean space perfect for blogging, calligraphy and emails to clients….ahhhh.
I’m really digging the minimalist aesthetic and really want to create this in more areas of my home. The beauty of it? It requires ridding of stuff instead of buying new; now that sounds like the perfect cure to my low-motivation/high-desire to decorate enigma, don’t you think?
