Today’s challenge will be short and sweet.
I’d love for you to just take a quick tour around your home and look at your decor. The stuff on your walls, your end tables, your bookshelves. Anything that isn’t functional, just decorative.
How long has it been there? Do you still love it?
That’s the million dollar question. Cause if we follow that rule–Only have stuff in your home that you know to be useful or believe to be beautiful–then your home decor should be beautiful/make you happy.
And if it doesn’t? Well.
It’s time for it to go.
Before we moved to our apartment, I took a look around our house at some of the stuff I had hanging on the walls and realized I had put it up seven years before (when we moved into the house) and there it had sat. (Some of it I’m pretty sure had never even been dusted. In seven years. Ew.)
I knew I wanted to be more intentional about what made it on our walls at our new place.
Pretty much just maps. And a few photos. And some words. And a “T.”
And don’t get me started on knickknacks. Tchotchkes. (yes, I had to google the spelling on that one) Whatever you want to call them. Oy. Very little made the cut in that department. Except globes. And a few more pictures. And my wooden giraffes from Kenya. (Don’t mess.)
Today’s challenge: take a tour of your home and note your decor. If it’s not really beautiful and not especially meaningful and has been there forever and just collects dust, well. You know the drill.
And I want to hear your success stories!
