Seriously, I have this board to thank. My home used to be a wreck all the time and now I am very happy with it. I'm not even going to post before pics, but over the past few months I have really dedicated myself to this and with your help I'm really happy in my home. I can't even begin to tell you all the little ways this board has helped me, from storage solutions to that push to get rid of things that are just taking up space. Thanks for the support everyone!

And with no further ado- my house. I still have some hidden clutter, so just don't open up the kitchen drawers, ok? :

It's private so you'll need the read only password which is Bella.

Thanks for looking!

Wow, I love your style. It looks so cosy and homely. You've inspired me to get things on the kids bedroom walls (cool looking hooks etc with their things hanging off them).

It's a Delight-Filled Life.

1. I am so jealous. I set a goal for 12/31 of no longer living in chaos, it's so not happening.

2. I love the idea of your DD having her own corner in the living room.

3. I love the reading corner!!

Very cozy! It's much easier to relax when you aren't surrounded by heaps of clutter, isn't it?

Your home would look fantastic with light but warm paint on the wall. You have a lot of creative furnishings to draw inspiration from.

I love it! Your home looks adorable and I can't even imagine where there was clutter in it before, because it looks so totally clutter free. And I think you have motivated me to finish the oodles of organization I really need to do today. Thanx for sharing!

Very warm and cozy, absolutely lovely.

One question: where do you store office-type stuff like paper and your computer? That's probably the worst area of my home right now.
