Homemaker: Clear the Clutter

So, I am getting ready for a move in March...sigh. 

The only thing about this move that I am looking forward to, is getting rid of clutter. I am downsizing a bit, so I need to get rid of stuff.  If I haven't worn it in a long time, it needs to go. If I haven't used it in a long time...bye bye. 

I have noticed how much clearer my mind feels since I have started getting rid of the clutter. "To have a place for everything, and everything in its place"...It will feel great. I have purchased a few items to help me organize my new closet (my closet has been in a hallway - long story). I love when keepsake boxes and baskets match; it is easier on the eyes, and I am a huge fan of the uniform appearance. 

Not only is it great for your mind, but I feel you attract more of the things you are hoping for when you make room for them. If you have any great suggestions, I would love to know about them. In the meantime, I will be over here clearing out the clutter. 

Kiss Kiss, 

Kiran

Interiors: Chillin' Poolside

I am dreaming of doing a backyard renovation, and I would love for my pool area to look as relaxing as the images above.  I am dreaming of chaise lounge chairs from Pottery Barn and a Mrs. Lilien Cocktail. I must get starting on making this dream a reality. 

Kiss Kiss,

Interiors: Home Extensions

It is hump day! We are halfway through the week, and I am ready for the weekend. What about you? I was day dreaming of a little architecture and ran into these two beautiful images on Pinterest. So lets talk about them, shall we?...

A tasteful blend of old and new. I adore the idea of adding on to a traditional home with modern architecture.  I enjoy seeing the contrast; it adds character to the home as well.  A girlfriend of mine turned me on to these type of home extensions in Atlanta. I love the thought of walking into a traditional home, and finding a completely different modern look inside. What about you?

Kiss Kiss,

Interiors: The Powder Room

Powder Room 4-005 Rev.jpg

The best thing for a small space is that bold wall color; or wallpaper you may feel uneasy to try in a larger room of your home. I think the powder room is an excellent room to take that leap! Imagine your guest wondering through your home, where you have more "safe colors", and enter into your bold powder room...Exactly! This is the place for all the quirks. I recently found this Bathroom Guest book at ZGallerie, and thought it would be something fun for guests to do. Again, it is about creating the unexpected.  

Kiss Kiss,

Interiors: All Mixed Up

Contrasting Cabinets Rev 2.jpg

Interiors: All Mixed Up

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a fabulous week. I thought we could use a little interiors in our lives today.  The one thing I pray to have in my dream kitchen are contrasting cabinets.  I would particulary like black cabinets on the bottom, and white cabinets on the top. As you can tell, I love me a little black and white. :-)

I also like the look of the kitchen island a different color than the rest of the cabinets.   This breaks up the look of the kitchen and gives it a bit of character.  Now I must get to work on getting this dream kitchen of mine.

Kiss Kiss,  

Kiran
