a [beautiful] mess

It has been a very long and tiring day and the last thing I want to do right now is clean up the house. It would just be so nice if the haphazard clutter on my table, desk and dresser tops effortlessly looked this good!

My mess never looks this nice! Hope you had a nice evening to make up for the long day!

Courtney said...

Is "lovely mess" an oxymoron? Either way: my tables, drawers, and counter tops never look this nice.

Have a bubblebath and a glass of wine. [That always helps when I've had a long day].

Funny, my clutter never looks this nice at all. Maybe I should stop to appreciate it more! ha

The really funny thing is that the stylist on location most likely took quite a while to achieve the perfectly beautiful mess you see! Great images.

I know, it is crazy! Now if only I had a stylist at home to make my "mess" look so lovely!

Dallas, so happy that top image made your day!

Courtney, very good advice and that is exactly what I did:)

I am an organizational freak and always make sure everything has a home and is in its home. However, oddly enough I love meaningful clutter. Little trinkets and nick-knack. It's my way of keeping my compulsiveness from making my house look like a museum. This photos are great messy inspiration!
