I’ve long been an admirer of Jennifer + A Merry Mishap blog. She makes, literally (and I’m not just saying this), the coolest jewelry and her home always has me swooning. Jennifer has some serious style. When I start feeling a little stressed about the clutter going on over at my house, I sometimes sneak over to Jennifer’s blog (or Instagram) for a hit of her simple Scandinavian style. There is just something calming and completely inspiring about her style, which always motivates me to simplify and modernize. If you haven’t read Jennifer’s blog it is a must read and don’t forget to check out her shop : A Merry Mishap Jewelry.
This is my side of the bed. I am constantly needing to be in touch with media and images so before I go to sleep I usuallyuse that time to flip through a book or magazine, and scroll the web on my ipad or phone. Of course I use the magazine rack I made to hang jewelry from the day and always have a cup of water nearby. My 2 year old son likes to wake me up in the morning, carrying with him an assortment of toys and things from his room. This is a pretty common look for our room!
This week would be a great time to organize my studio/office & storage closet. Many times with work messes can build up in the hurry of it all. Going through my filing cabinets and storage closet to throw away or donate things I don’t use any more is great for freeing up
space and helping me to find the things I need most more easily.
I have to let my work space go, there’s always a project or two in progress so even if the rest of the house is spotless, this is the place that I’ve learned will always be in a state of disarray.
Simply put, sometimes you have to let things go! I used to be super organized and clean with every corner of my house. After having a child and starting a business at home it’s taken me a while to grasp this concept but some things (like messy corners) are not worth getting upset over.
