When I feel like I am in a style rut, I pull everything out of my closet and I asses what is still relevant to my life and make the decision to part ways with the items that I have been hanging on to. Much life my closet, I approach my home in the same way. Once ever couple of months, when I am feeling my surroundings getting a little stale, I remove every book, candle and decorative piece from its current surface, place it on my dinning table so I can evaluate it properly, and I start over.
It is an interesting experiment as all of the objects naturally end up in a new place. Some go into storage, but most find new places to shine. It is a simple fun process and always leaves me feeling refreshed. Here are some slide shows to demonstrate what it looks like. There is no rhyme or reason to the way I style things the way I do, I just place things to together that make me feel happy, or have harmony together!!
