New here? Here are a few things you should know:

1. we are renting, this is our fourth year in this house

2. I move stuff around all the time, so you might see the same thing in all different rooms

3. our home is here to serve us, not the other way around. we are not afraid to use it fully and make messes and live within the imperfect

4. my house doesn’t really look like these photos today why? I’m doing a little experiment: 30 days without accessories. we’ll talk more about it tomorrow, you are welcome to join in and give your stuff a break.
