Simple Obsessions

I love vintage style, don't get me wrong.  But I also absolutely crave simple, clean, contemporary designs.  That's why my 125 year old farmhouse is filled with the old and the new.  After visiting California last week and driving around So Cal, I started thinking (actually, obsessing) about a few things:

  • small is cozy
  • simplicity is satisfying
  • clean designs make bold statements 
  • unclutter your space and you unclutter your mind
  • living simply is so much more than simply living.
So this is my latest obsession.  And if you have to obsess, like me, then why not make it a simple obsession?  What do you think?

  1. There's a lot I like about modern spaces: the simplicity, the way form and function combine, the clean lines... But I rarely see modern spaces that feel warm or homey -- at least in my opinion. I like the idea of small, older spaces. But that's just my style.
