I have posted pictures on here in the past, but not much of my curent house.  This weekend we got a new to us dresser set for my DS's room.  We decided to declutter and organize him room and I am very happy with how it turned out.  Everything has a home now, which

love!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your photo wall!!!  I've been wanting to do this for a long time and you gave me the motivation to do it!

How do you post pics directly?

post #906 of 1163

I love this thread!

 

Thriftyqueen, I love your photo wall too! I also love how the decal ties it all together.

 

Cookiepie, when you post there's a bar of options above it where you can change the font, hyperlink, and choose smilies. There's an option that looks like a square picture that if you click on it says "insert image". I believe you can upload directly from your computer.

I spent most of yesterday working on my living room. Spring cleaning and decluttering was the theme of the day lol! No baby toys on the floor, or muddy shoes by the door. The kitchen is next on my list!

Hi, I'm new here! I've been reading a lot for at least a week and just decided to jump right in!

Here are some pics of our 600 sf apartment. There's three of us, we only have one bedroom but we co-sleep with DD (2). The living room is a combined play room, home office (each person has their own desk!) and lounging area. The kitchen fits a reasonably sized table. The bathroom is quite small but it fits a washing machine. I feel like we have plenty of space, we have lots of room in the cabinets (we all share the built-in wardrobe in the bedroom). Though we used to have more stuff and I felt crammed and claustrophobic, but turns out we didn't need a bigger home, we just needed less stuff :D Go figure! I don't ever want a big house now that I've got this figured out!

Love your wood stove and wood floors Beckybird -- it definitely looks clear and clutter free! Way to go :)

post #911 of 1163

Loving all these wood floors! Gorgeous, decluttered spaces, mamas!

Thank you so much!

I love this thread. It's so inspirational! What beautiful homes you all have love.gif

post #913 of 1163

Thriftyqueen I have found your photo wall so inspiring!  I am trying to work out where I can do this in our home now. orngbiggrin.gif

 

Also in your other photo, I noticed the view outside...do you actually have snow in your backyard?  (forgive my wide eyed wonder....coming from Australia I just can't imagine it!)

So glad that my picture wall inspired you!  I love being able to look at that wall and think about all of my family.  It makes me feel so loved!!

 

Yes, we have lots and lots and lots of snow.  It started in October and we just had another big storm last week.  Can't wait for it to melt and for some spring/summer weather!  This is a closer view of my yard.  This is the front yard.

And this is the backyard:

Wow...it looks so beautiful.  Although I can imagine the novelty might wear off quite quickly when you are ready for Spring to arrive. winky.gif

 

We have quite opposite weather here of course.....it has been very hot for Autumn, still hot enough to go to the beach and swim in our pool...but the last 2 days finally have become a bit cooler which is nice, have even worn a cardigan to go out.

Minimum, I LOVE your home!  How fantastically inspirational.  I do hope that you share more!

post #917 of 1163

Thanks cece!!!! I actually rearranged a little in the living room. And I took some new pictures from all over the apartment, including our wardrobe.. I hope this isn't too many pictures :)

 

 

 

My clothes (and DD's dresses on the far left). The bottom shelf of jumbled mess is my undies, socks and night wear. I also have a couple of cardigans, jackets and coats in the entrance hall. Two bottom shelves are for DD's clothes and diapers (not seen in this picture.) DH has the other half of the built-in closet.

DD's shelf of clothing in my side of the closet. In addition to this she has woolly stuff and outerwear in the entrance hall. She has actually a bit more than she needs atm.

IMG_0751.JPGAnd here is the entrance hall with open coat rack and shoe rack. The colorful winter overall is not supposed to be hanging where it is, but on the other side with the other clothing.. so that the hallway isn't blocked!

 

 A robot hook hangs two bags that hold mittens, hats etc.IMG_0756.JPG

 

Cooking utensils and vintage jars with flour

IMG_0755.JPGIMG_0753.JPGThe above shelves in the kitchen

 hold a washable paper bag as DH's landing strip, an enamel mixing/serving bowl and an enamel coffee pot that functions as our water /juice pitcher. The rooster whistle is DH's memento from his grandma.

IMG_0655.JPGIMG_0675.JPGIMG_0722.JPGIMG_0729.JPGIMG_0665.JPGIMG_0676.JPGIMG_0673.JPGIMG_0749.JPGIMG_0750.JPGIMG_0761.JPG

Close-up of DD's comfy corner. The tiger is from DH's childhood and I've made the pillows.

 

So, I don't know, I think we have managed to fit a very comfortable amount of stuff in our 600 ft one-bedroom without feeling crammed in the least.. I will try to pare down just a little more, but still stay cozy and homey for DD!! Mostly our thing from now on will be to limit the incoming stuff to minimum. And if anything does enter our home, something else must go. But the best thing is to bring in the bare minimum, only replace worn out clothing for example. DD will get new toys and books obviously but I will try to keep it in check and also have started to talk to her about giving away excess..DH is completely on board with minimalism and he isn't into shopping or clothes or anything much beyond computers and books, but the books go the his work place's library after he has read them so that's all good!!!

MiniMum, it looks like you are doing a great job keeping your small space organized and homey!  I think it looks awesome!!!!  I luxlove.gif your green settee!

post #919 of 1163

Thanks! The green sofa is from my mom's side of the family and it was recently reupholstered. It seats three people. There are also six chairs, but we have no room for them. The sofa is our least functional piece of furniture- pretty much only used when we have guests. It's not good for lounging, but oh so very pretty! Still, if someone else in the family would want it at some point I'd give it away.

Here are pics of the other side of the living room, with my husband's desk.IMG_0762.JPGIMG_0768.JPGIMG_0763.JPGIMG_0744.JPG

 

I'm still thinking of things to get rid of. Under my desk is a cardboard box full of cd's of childrens' stories (my aunt was a director in the national radio) and we should burn them and get rid of the actual cd's. Under my husband's desk is some of his junk. There is room in his side of the bedroom closet where we could put them, just need to sort through it... And I'm culling pretty much all the categories of stuff, but mostly things will just be "naturally decluttered" from now on, meaning we will use them up and wear them out.

@ MiniMum- Too many pictures?  No such thing on a "Share your pictures" thread!  Thank you, your space is very inspirational to me.  Is the white cushion a bean bag type of thing?    I love, love the light feeling that your home evokes.  I'm motivated, hopefully I can share some pics of my own in the next few weeks!

P.s., I LOVE your office chair!
