clean slate {of curtains}

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time for a clean slate in every aspect of your life--a blank new calendar (which I just realized I don't have!), an revamp of your wardrobe or a fresh look in your home. And a fresh look in your home does not mean a major overhaul--it can be something simple like adding a crisp cream curtain along a wall to cover up an old wall color or simply to add texture, as in this home designed by Vincente Wolf. Even these little things make a world of difference.

I am also just crazy about the proportions of this light fixture to the dining room table and the way the mirror hangs against the pleats of the curtain.

Gorgeous rooms! Definitely find myself gravitating to lighter colours this time of year after the rich dark hues of fall and the beginning of winter.

I'm imagining how soft that couch could be under my stressed body. Wood combo at the dining room is a sure hit.
