They say its Spring, but I don’t believe it. I woke up yesterday morning to a blanketed landscape of snow. As pretty as it was to look at, I’d had grown tired of it. I’m ready for spring and all the good things that come with it. For our homes, Spring is a time of purging, refresh and renewal. Time to take out the clutter that we’ve accumulated during the winter.
A clutter-free home is not only about clearing away what’s behind closed doors. For many of us, our residences become a haven of collections as time passes on. Over time, we tend to collect furniture we don’t really need and over-accessorize our décor. When I think of clutter-free homes, I think of the saying “Less is More” and I immediately think of one of my favorite designers, Darryl Carter. Carter creates livable environments. He is a modernist who draws inspiration from the past and designs interiors with a refined, individual aesthetic. Carter’s décor is defined by restrained, edited choices, with an emphasis on subtle upholstery and elegant antiques. He brings clean, serene calm to the home environment. Wouldn’t you love to come home to a place that looked like this?
Happy Spring cleaning!
Ciao for now,
