I go through spurts where I want to burn everything down because I cannot deal with clutter. Stuff does not equal happiness, at least it doesn’t for me!
I first started ripping the mantle off. The corbels have become a bit too cluttered looking for me and with no mantle and just the black mirror it feels a lot more streamlined and modern.
If you look back on past blogs, although the mantle looked nice, it added clutter to the space. Adding on round mirror to a wall can really direct the eye and calm a space down, as well as make the space feel a lot brighter.
Second, I pulled out a ton of decor. Often in the decor world more is better.. but it just stressed me out and it didn’t feel zen.
What did I do with all of the stuff? I migrated it to either rooms or sold it. Ever since January I’ve been purging a lot of stuff. Stuff that really has no value but has just moved from house to house with us. Stuff that doesn’t spark joy.
If you want to do a big purge, I say go for it. Even though it might be hard to give away / sell your stuff, you won’t miss it. It’s purely just stuff.
Quality over quantity.
Below I’ve tagged a few of the key pieces in this blog post. The Sofa, TV Stand and baskets are from Structube.
Coffee Table and Side Table are from Article.
Chairs are from Campaign.
What do you think of the change?
