Why I Decluttered and Redecorated — and Why You Should Too
Create Sacred Spaces
Breathe life into your favorite rooms by infusing them with natural elements, such as a twig wreath, seashell collection or freshly-picked wildflowers. Treat your home like a sanctuary that deserves to be honored and adorned with only items you truly love. Make a photo corner with snapshots of friends and family to give yourself a boost during the day. Turn a reading nook into a peaceful refuge by adding an oversized, comfortable chair facing the window that lets in soft light.
The goal is to decorate your home and declutter with intention. Skip over the latest gadgets and trinkets, and instead, embrace what truly matters. Only buy what adds to your home’s efficiency or tranquility, and leave everything else behind.
