As we plan our remodel (and find a place to live next year while all of this is going on – anyone want roommates!) I’m also thinking about pieces I want to use when we move back in – mirrors, bedding, rugs . . . the plan is to make things airy and fresh feeling, layering patterns, and keeping details simple and cozy. I’m designing the house keeping in mind that “everyday things” can pile up, so the backdrop needs to be clean and simple. In my opinion, it’s the easiest way to avoid a clutter filled house.
