What caught my eye in the past month

Below is what caught my eye in the past month. A bit of a theme I think – you let me know!

Around the country a lot of churches seem to be empty and being sold. We have so much construction here. It seems to be on every corner.  So when I saw this home tour of a renovated church I so had to check it out.

Declutter in minutes takes us through setting up a weekly planning basket. A place we can put all our paper to deal with that week (instead of all over the house).

I’m not sure I could live with this much colour on a daily basis but it definitely caught my eye and made me smile.  Living room with colour!!

I guess I was having a month of being drawn to colour.  The crafted life shows us 10 colourful offices.

These architectural designs caught my eye. Tag line they focus on human and nature.

    Very interesting! Love the church she turned into a home; it would seem there would be way too much space, but it looks comfortable. I take it the bedroom is in the Choir loft…

    That really colorful house… yeah, no…

    Do you ever read the site Apartmet Therapy? You might find it interesting…

    Wow–that renovated church. Interesting–and I lived in Richmond, VA, for a long time–very cool. I adore the teal kitchen cabinets with the black plates. So fun. Thanks for always digging up the good stuff!

    As I am in the process of moving, decluttering and minimizing are paramount and what I have been doing and still doing every day. I will have to decorate and set up home in a new space in two weeks’ time so I love to get new ideas but I must admit that the office with all the colors, as for you, will be way too much for me, and especially that 2 of us will share the same ‘office space’ I will the tone it down and keep it minimalistic.

      Yes I’m drawn so some decor, like that colourful office, but wouldn’t necessary have in my home. Smaller space will be interesting to see what novel storage ideas you come up with. I found when I moved and brought what I thought I wanted when I unpacked some item I realized I didn’t want them in my new space. If that makes sense.

        Yes, I am purging as much as I can, but I feel that I will also end up with stuff once I unpack that will have to go due to either not enough space or that it does not work as initially envisioned.
        As for storage ideas, I have thought about this a lot, but most of it will have to wait for when we are in the new space to make sure that I get what we truly need, will fit and work best, so I still have lots of work coming up over the next number of months, but I am looking forward to it to settle and get everything organized in the smaller space.
