Everything tastes better in moderation, don’t you think?…
We love surrounding ourselves with possessions to display our curiosities and tell the rich story of our lives. Styling discipline however works wonders, especially when selling property. Just like my diet to my body lately;). The paradox is that it looks like it requires the least amount of resources, like time and amount of props. Sometimes its true. What’s for sure, is that it looks luxuries, refined and understated.
I analysed minimalistic styling, so if you like the look it might help the next time you want to style for sale.
European (Inspired) Stores in Ontario
From time to time, I get asked where do I shop, so here is just a few of scandi, boho and modern stores beside IKEA. Common denominator: European influence. You probably know them, but these are my favourite.
Hunting for vintage reminds me of my high school days, when I used to go out to little joints in my home town. Nobody really cared how dingy these places were. What you cared about, was live music, cigarettes smoking, cheap beer and shared moments with your dudes. We were free, we were young and we felt cool;) Same here. Those places are cool. You can smell past, you can picture the journeys items have passed to get there, you can imagine people using them, resting them in peace in cold cellar rooms and basements, to finally let them go on garage sales.
Ta da! the house is sold. I’m actually shocked this only took one weekend… and my husband is even more shocked;) I’m torn between being happy and sad (that I have to leave it)…But… I just hope the next house will have as much potential as this one and I will, again, have the opportunity for this much fun in redecorating it!
