“We were together. I forget the rest.”

Pale & Simple

When I look at my interiors board, I notice that lately I’ve been drawn to simple and rustic spaces. Which isn’t necessarily unlike me, but they all seem to be in the same pale and creamy palette. Maybe this is the calm before the color explosion of Spring? Do these spaces appeal to the minimalist in you, or do you find them dull?

    My soul is split between the minimalist (like these photos) and the bohemian… And yes, these are very appealing!

    I like them! So soothing and simple and clean. Plus the little warm touches of texture or pattern really make it.

BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
