I have always longed to embrace minimalism in my living space - I love poring over Vogue living, admiring the gorgeously minimalist, perfectly right-angled interiors. But somehow I can never make myself "fit" into that style - I love having pretty things on display, I like my space to feel personalised and comfortable, to have it reflect my character (very, very girly!)
There is obviously a fine line between clutter and nicely decorated - I abhor clutter in every form (watching "Hoarders" makes me squirm), but I think its possible to display your favourite keepsakes, books and decorative items without overstepping that line. Or maybe I've crossed over, I'm not sure! You be the judge...
Serious cosmetics overload - the dressing table in the spare room (aka my dressing room) - I have a fairly limited makeup collection so I imagine there are far more impressive tables than mine out there!
My bedside table - replete with books, hand creams, candle, photo of V and I, and the ubiquitous "girly" crystal lamp
Our coffee table currently boasts several Glasshouse candles, body cremes, stacked display books, and an Aynsley china dish
Do you embrace minimalism? Or is your house more like mine?
