Soothing and pretty... a break from the clutter

We are still up to our eyeballs in clutter today.
All 3 children's bedrooms have been cleaned and decluttered from top to toe.
The resulting excess has spilled out to the rest of the house and oh boy, total chaos!

These soothing and oh so easy on the eye pictures are just what I need.
A rest for my poor eyes and inspiration for neat and tidy.

We have been pricing and sorting the goodies from the kids rooms into boxes ready for a garage sale.

See the wire mesh on the stairs.
I think this is genius.
Simple, effective with a slight industrial edge.

This living room is light and simple.
Probably not something I would be able to keep this tidy. But it is inspiring.

Well, back to the mess. 
Hopefully I will have it tamed and packed away by the end of the morning.

Then look out kitchen cupboards You are in for a shock!

We might find time to squeeze in a trip to see the Smurf movie.
Anyone seen it yet?


  1. Hi deb, i really love the huge oversized mirrors!! lusting after one of those for my bedroom!! hope you are well,

  2. Oh my! Loving pics 2 and 4...so serene and calm indeed...mmmm! My house is a sea of Lego at the moment. Oh well, school holidays will pass by and one day I will miss the mess left behind by my little people (i think). Haven't seen Smurfs but we can't wait to see Johnny English : ) Alison x

  3. Hi Deb,
    What a productive day you are having!!! Nothing like a good spring clean.
    Love these soothing house images.

  4. Hello Deb

    I have a love affair with those large width and pale timber floor boards.

    So soft the whole lot and liveable too

    have a wonderful day



    (ps might be seeing the smurfs this weekend :)

  5. Hi Deb
    Have fun with the cleanout!!! I'm loving these greys .. especially the bed linens!! Been considering purchasing grey sheets.. and I think this has helped me make my decision..

    Have a great week.. ciao xxx Julie

  6. It helps to look at these crisp, serene pictures while dealing with clutter...they always make me want to tidy up as well! I don't think many know what a clutter person I am. My children have less clutter! lol!! Maybe I need to follow suit with you!


  7. Good luck with all the decluttering. I have to do that too these school holidays, my kids drawers are full to bursting! Love the images, especially the mirrors in the first two. Gx

  8. Oh i am sooo jealous of your spring clean - I am in desperate need but all boxed up at the moment.... Happy sorting x

  9. I look at pictures like these and think "I live in a shack!" We decluttered about a month ago and before that in April and could probably do it again. I have no idea were all the stuff comes from! It's like someone sneaks into the house at night and throws it in the closets, under the beds and on the back of the couch. I had a meltdown a few weeks ago about all the shoe clutter at the front door - turns out they were mine - had to hang my head in shame.....

  10. Once I saw the first picture I couldn't concentrate on the others!!!! I love that bath and mirror, SO gorgeous! X

  11. Gorgeous spaces! Loving those huge mirrors! Enjoy the beautiful day, Kellie xx
