I have fought against my own desire to move and have loved being settled. There are, though, good things about moving...
1) When you move you can have a really good clean out. I am a bit of a clean out queen and there are those in my family who know that if anything is left out too long it gets thrown away. They know who they are... It is hard to see the wood from the trees when you have been in a house for thirteen years and we have TOO MUCH STUFF.
2) It is exciting to plan the decoration of a new house. You start to think about the way you live afresh and can make some good changes.
3) I have written before about my love of a clean notebook. A new house is like that notebook. In this one you will get it all exactly right...
Well we are not about to move and we love our home but it is a home that is looking, well lived in. I am also craving all the things you get from a move. I have recently been inspired by a series on the site Apartment Therapy called The January Cure. They suggest that you can completely refresh your home in a month. I can't, but over the next few months I will be making little moves to de-clutter, get round to several little projects that we have been going to do 'one day' (like fix the banister and tile that extra bit in the kitchen), and freshen up some paint work.
I am collecting images on a new pinterest board to inspire me. The image above is one of my inspiration pictures. I see wood, baskets, white walls glass and natural objects. They are things that have been constant in my homes over the years. I am getting back to my basics.
