I am no minimalist.

Hi Sweethearts!

As you know I am working my way back to my happy self, one day at a time, and one room in my new flat at a time. I am recharging, redefining, expressing my self, grounding my self within my self and in my new home. going at it determinedly.

I finished my living room yesterday, and looking at it one thing jumped out at me. I am no minimalist.

In fact, I am a maximalist, in my fashion, in my designs and in my life. When I love I do it with all of who I am. When I mix prints I don`t hold back.

This approach to life and style is not about taking the easy way out, but I have a secret weapon. I know that I can get away with it. And when I can`t, I can laugh about it.

Case in point:

Getting my heart broken.

Incredibly hard to deal with, but worth it.

Am I not going to dare to fall in love again? No way.

I have been blessed with the gift of being completely close, completely happy.





Buying the biggest lamp known to man.

I laughed so hard when I was assembeling it and realized just how bleedin massive it is that I nearly wet my self.

Was I going to admit defeit and return it? No way.

I took it to the next level instead by decorating it with some fabric. I nearly got the measurments right. I`ll fix it if I can be bothered. But I probably can`t be. I don`t need perfection.




Meanwhile, how`s this for daily affirmations:


                                                                                                                                                                       I`ll report back on that one.

Ps. The soft furnishings are mostly my design. Also, thank you so much for not giving up on me. I love you.

Tell me my friends, what is your approach to life?


 I would love to connect with you!
