Monday snoop–simple is key…

If you are still hitting the snooze button 3 times before getting out of bed, then you have my deepest sympathies because I have been sharing in your pain. I guess I am still struggling to tear myself out of holiday mode. And even though I hate to admit it, taking down all the festive decorations seemed to help me get back on track – I can now see the television again and I am no longer tripping over miles of fairly light cables. I think the key to getting through this month will be keeping things simple. Packing away all the excess festive alcohol, relegating that old fondue pot to the loft and de-cluttering my bookshelves. It’s this notion that has me drawn to simple Scandinavian homes with bright clean walls, neutral tones, minimal furniture and beautiful styling.

A little something like this…

  1. Eugh, yes, back to work here too and missing the escapism of the festive season. You have my sympathy on that one.

    Those images are gorgeous, could I please have a scandinavian-sized home in London at an affordable price? I can do the decorating - no problem ;-)

    Have a good week ahead xo

  2. Happy New Year Meghan, lovely to be back in the world of blogging. I love your new look too, very cool!

    Those Scandinavians are so clever. They create effortlessly gorgeous, clean living spaces, that still manage to ooze warmth and personality. x

  8. There's something about New Year's that screams "organize" to us and you're right, now that the holidays decorations are down, it's easier to do. Love the quiet simpleness of your images today, Meghan, and here's to a produtive week!
    xxoo

  9. Yep, I'm on that same page. My body just isn't used to getting up early these days. I say the solution to all of this is another few days off. It seems only fair.

  10. I am in the process of doing just that. It is amazing how many decorative items one can collect over the years but that is what makes the Christmas season. And yet, I have not a lot compared to others. I love the color on the walls.

  14. Ahhhhh I just love the Scand's way of design ..... simple and clean. Its nice how the house looks somewhat empty now that our decorations are all gone. It's inspired me to go inside the drawers, purge and make them look as clean the rest of my house. LOVE IT! Oh and I'm with you totally about the waking up bit in the morning, I'm still struggling too.

  15. Love the bedroom, it is so light and airy! I had a hard time getting out of bed today as well. I didn't hit the snooze button this morning and turned the alarm off. Of course I fell asleep again and woke up an hour later. Woops! I am still used to the long holiday weekends and don't want to get up early another four days this week ;) Have a good one!
