home make-over.

some of you might remember when i first moved in to the barn loft. i remember painting the green wall, and almost crying. not because the serpentine color is so rich, but because it was symbolic of settling down...of making home.

saturday morning, i woke up with so many thots. they swirled and swirled until i caught them all and made them sit down on a piece of paper (well, many pieces of paper). then, out of nowhere i had a vision for my space. i quickly drew out the new upstairs floor plan & schemed when i could rearrange everything.

later that afternoon, i told my friend about this idea over a 3pm lunch, and he said he would help me move right after we stopped by the good will. so...we scuffed the floors, pushed, pulled, and turned the loft into a space i feel like i can keep growing into.

with that... here's the simple home make-over : everything i own, shifted around.
please visit brooke's site missuloveu for some whimsical expressions of all things she loves. she (and her work) are a delight.

what i realized later was that it was no coincidence that my morning thoughts were intermingled with the vision for this space. this new layout symbolizes where i'm at in life: grounded & expansive. and that's exactly what i had been journaling about.
