My simplicity inspiration comes from this UK site


I’m officially getting my news these days from the UK’s House and Garden.  Every history and patina-soaked image of clean European living inspires me to be a better editor of my own things, and seek out one-of-a-kind items that will outlive me.  It serves as a reminder that beauty is often the absence, not the presence of things.  It’s hard to get wrong if you call a centuries-old French monastery home, but we can all do better with what we have.

What sources aside from organizing magazines and catalogs serve as your inspiration to live a cleaner, more beautiful life?  Please share in the comments!
