I am in the process of having a big clear out of my home ..... the bedroom needed painting, which forced me to empty the entire room, then I did away with one of my huge bookcases (actually we are using it in my daughters room), which made me donate a lot of books and magazines to the local charity shop, so that was a really good start.
Now, I don't see myself as a massive consumer or a hoarder and I have been trying to make a conscious effort to not buy anything I don't really need .... so I really can't believe how much "stuff" I actually have. I plan on being very brutal with my interior culling, I remember reading a book by Terence Conran and he swears by emptying everything out of the room on to the lawn and only putting back what you really love and need, don't think I will go that far but I think it's a good theory.
I really do want a bit more simplicity and sparseness though, don't worry I'm not going all minimalist or anything .... but I do think a good clear out is good for the soul, I know I will feel great when I eventually get through it.
Wish me luck, between you and me I think I have created a bit of a monster !!!
I thought I would share these interior shots with you, I find them quite inspiring in their simplicity.
I always love the look of a mattress on the floor in a bedroom, think I'm going to try it when we get everything back in there.
PS ......Ptolomeo bookcase, I love the look of it and it is so practical and space saving , I was really surprised at how many books it held, not sure where it will end up living yet.
Goes without saying, I better get back to work !!!
