Comfortable Minimalism

12 May

What is minimalism? Essentially, minimalism is about promoting what you value and the purging of all else. The ideology pertains not only to your physical space, but to the way you choose to spend your time and how you spend your money. It’s really about seeking a lifestyle of authenticity by living more simply.

This month for the Kitsap Sun, I expanded on this idea and outlined some practical tips for making the move toward living minimally in your home. You’ll also find a list of resources to get started with minimalism. I think that it is possible to live more minimally, with only the things you truly love, whilst not forsaking any of your creature comforts.


The air plant rests on top of a special collection of rocks collected on family beach walks. Not only do I love the look of the natural colors and textures, but the memories they invoke make me smile each time I pass by.

Hello friends! Yesterday, my October print feature ran in the Kitsap Sun. Here is a link to read about, and see photos of some easy, elegant ways to decorate for fall using natural elements and inexpensive accessories. I had a lot of fun putting this together, I hope you like it!

I’m Writing For the Sun!!!

1 Sep

I’m so very excited to announce that I’ve started blogging for the Kistap Sun, our local paper here in Kitsap County. I’ll be doing what I love to do, by telling my decorating and organizing stories and hopefully inspiring lots of new folks to cozy up their nests. In addition to posting on the blog Creating Your Space, I’ll have a feature story in print on the first Sunday of each month. Please take a moment to check out the introduction to the column and my bio. Thanks for keeping up with me!
