clean+simple

For better or worse I have always found joy in a bit of clutter--something very cozy and homey about it. However the order, simplicity and clean lines of this home make me want to store away all my knick knacks.

The kitchen is ahhmazzinngg. I have to say that I hate clutter, and while it's easy to accumulate I long for not a thing out of place! Except things creep up on you, I wish I was this tidy

That kitchen is heavenly, and not to mention tidy.

I agree it looks very nice. But I like a bit of clutter as well as it makes the place looked lived in.

I like the use of black in every neutral room. Cool. But does anyone else think the crown molding on the hutch in the kitchen is kind of out of place?

Oh wow - just lovely. The mix of simple and modern with natural wood with a hit of exotic is the perfect pairing.

You know, in this house it looks perfect to be so sleek & clean. However, I do love my collections of "stuff" pillaged from travels far & wide. Now I'm thinking to put them away for awhile. Cool post.
