If I heard it once I heard it a million times: A clutter-free zone allows you to focus on the important things! And that’s the TRUTH! Keeping this phrase in mind, I created a desk area in my living room that is simple, inspiring, and a reflection of me! In design there’s always a starting point, whether it’s a fabric, paint color, a piece of furniture, or in my case artwork.
During my last trip to Florida I experienced my first auction, it was a lot of fun. That’s where I came accross this vibrant artwork, as soon as I saw it-I knew I had to have it! I kept reassuring my husband that I had a vision and it would be FABULOUS…..thank God he understands and is so patient with me!
I kept the desk and the accessories simple, surrounding myself with key things that make me happy; books, flowers, and souvenirs. I recently came across They’re Souvenirs, Not Stuff! in the NYTimes. A great article that talks about how souvenirs have a story; reminding us of places, people, and experiences. Two of my favorite souvenirs are the petit Eiffel Tower I purchased during my stay in Paris and the hand crafted wooden box my husband picked up for me during our honeymoon.
What souvenir/s do you treasure the most?
Enjoy and thanks for viewing!
