Beauty in Simplicity.

Today I am finding beauty in the simplicity of these relatively unadorned rooms. I don’t know what it is about stripping away all the ‘stuff’ that leaves more space for peace to abide. I think it must be the lack of distractions and stimulation that I find really refreshing in a time where there is no shortage of those things all around us – vying for our attention (I am talking about you, Pinterest). But really, I like all the inspiration as much as the next person, but do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by it all? I do. I often have so many ideas floating through my head so quickly that I don’t have time to process any of them before the next one comes flying at me.

Sorry to get all philosophical on you there. I just think that these spare interiors allow space for the mind to rest and be creative on it’s own, if that makes sense. I also think they prove that you don’t always have to have the latest and greatest new couch or chair to beautify your space. I am constantly learning to see beauty in the simple things.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have gorgeous wood floors and a massive amount of natural light. I hope you all have a wonderful last weekend of October!

    This is my theory for why I see SO many ‘all white’ homes featured on design blogs, tumblr, and pinterest. Our society is bombarded by SO many visuals … billboards, advertisements on buses, in stores, on buildings, TV, iPad, telephones … we look for ways to reduce all that noise. My .02cents Canadian. 🙂
