The 3000 Thing Challenge

The 3000 Thing Challenge

Do you own stuff? Or does your stuff own you? Join me in the 3000 Thing Challenge!

Every once in a while, I get so tired of it, I could scream.

Stuff takes OVER.

And you have heard me say here before that “You cannot have a beautiful space if it is filled with junk.” Tough love? Maybe. But it is true. If you look around you and see clutter and pieces and papers and piles… you will not experience the freedom that comes with a beautiful, clean slate.

In the month of January, I am taking a simple challenge that I heard about from my friend Nicole. I decided to make it a “Thing,” and I do so hope you will join me!!!

Do you own stuff? Or does your stuff own you? Join me in the 3000 Thing Challenge! #declutter #3000ThingChallenge (<-Tweet This)

All you need to do is get rid of 3000 Things in the month of January.

Give them away. Donate them en masse. Throw them out. Get them out from under your roof. 3000 things.

Go one drawer at a time. One closet at a time. Do a little each day. Or go to town for 5 days straight. Or dive in each weekend.

But imagine how much lighter you could feel in the New Year if you owned your stuff, instead of it owning you?? I, for one, am done with being a slave to a bunch of things!

For people who are overwhelmed at the thought… just think: you could probably toss at least 100 things from your junk drawer of pens and pencils alone! 100 little things a day will add up to 3000 things (+ or -) in the first month of 2016!

Are you ready to start this year a little lighter?

If so, comment below and tell us all that you are IN!!!

PS There are a zillion awesome posts out there on the HOW of decluttering. Just do a quick Pinterest search and you will find something great. Questions you can ask yourself, etc. My advice? I just chant “Be ruthless. Be ruthless. Be ruthless.” when I declutter. You can do this!

When the Pantone Color of the Year is a 90’s Victorian nightmare

When the Pantone Color of the Year is a 90’s Victorian nightmare

When I saw the Pantone Colors of 2016 ( more is more. we now have 2 Colors of the year), these are the thoughts that entered my mind:

1.  Oh yes. I painted my Victorian dollhouse those exact colors. A long time ago.

2. The Barbie dream house is finally “in” again. Alleluia.

3. Thomas Kincade, may he rest in peace, would have been TOTALLY psyched.

Friends. Shall I confess? I do not currently plan on using these colors in my home. Especially the blue tone of “Serenity,” which is truly not a fan fave of mine. To me, Serenity, is the epitome of country blue and can only be used successfully by the rare decorating genius, like Angela or Kelly Wearstler. Just being honest.

Then, I silenced the critic and went on a hunt to see if I could even find some beautiful fashion and interior spaces that were based on this combo. And in my snarky, yet humble, opinion, I think I found some winners. Just a few:

Dear friends. That is all I’ve got for you on this one.

What about you? What do YOU think of the Pantone Colors of 2016??

ditto worthy house tour :: rich and saturated elegance

Ditto Worthy House Tour: Rich and Saturated

Happy {ditto} Monday!_peacock

You simply must check out this ditto-worthy home. I am in love!

{This Houston home, which belongs to the Moldawer family, is a stunner. Interior Design by Jan Showers.}

What I would ditto about this overall style:

1. This classy space is rich in color, texture, and gold. Each room has the inclusion of a saturated color pop that is so dreamy.

2. Drapes take center stage in these rooms, and certainly have my attention here. Ceiling to floor, they add the drama and the dressmaker details.

3. The fabrics are gorgeous, with saturated silks and velvets that can’t be ignored.

4.  I love the contrast happening in every room between cool tones and warm tones.

5. A drop of gold enters every room, adding to the richness.

6. Classic, elegant simplicity enters each room, yet every room includes a pop of modern art and color. Right up my alley.
