Today’s new column is called MONDAY MESS.
Mondays can be a drag. Messes are definitely a downer. But beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.
Haven’t you ever been on the inter webs and spied someone’s messy desk and thought it to be beautiful? Truly, a beautiful mess, right? There have been so many times I have seen piles and clutter, desks, boards, nightstands, and the like, that are bit messy but ever so interesting.
While we are all striving for perfection, I’m convinced that it is the imperfection that is interesting. I’m certain that if your home is filled with beautiful things (and by that I mean, things that have meaning and beauty to you) than even when these items are strewn about or out of their place they still somehow bring a sense of interest to your space. Perfection isn’t always pretty. So, on this Monday when the laundry pile is overwhelming, the dishes are stacked to the ceiling and you can’t see the bottom of your desk, take heart! You are not alone! And do look a little closer because I’m quite certain there is pretty to be found in your piles.
This column is going to feature well lived in spaces of stylish and interesting people living with interesting and stylish things. While I love, and pretty much adore, looking at styled spaces, I love even more peeking into well loved and lived in homes. And I think you, just, might too? Each week we’ll host a conversation on a featured space, acceptance of imperfection, organizational tips and tricks and, end with a little inspiration. It will look a little like this:
PHOTOS / The mess
CLEAN IT / Blogger will share a space in their home they plan to pay special attention to this week. As well as a favorite organizational tip, trend or product. Anything and everything they might have to say on the subject of clean.
LEAVE IT / Blogger will share a space that, although it may drive them crazy, they are willing to let go this week. Accept it as it is. Move on and clean/organize it when they can.
BELIEVE IT / Blogger will share an inspirational thought, quote, idea, etc. Something in their own words.
