Beauty & The Mess

Beauty & The Mess

When I rearranged a few things in my dining room the other day, it led to a mess in the living room. Does that ever happen to you, where a project in one room sets off an avalanche in another? No? Well, it happens at my house all the time.

I start to get one area more pulled together, and the room next to it falls apart (at least temporarily). Messes multiply.

I don’t think home projects are as compartmentalized or neat and tidy as we might wish they were. Rooms in our home are connected to each other (and intertwined with our daily life) so a project or change in one space can throw another room into a tailspin.

But that ebb and flow between beauty and the mess are all a part of the creative process.

Tell me about the mix of beauty and mess in your house! Let’s confess what we’re dealing with here.
