Cabin Fever

Maybe it's spending more time inside this time of year, but I'm feeling so annoyed with our house. Annoyed might be too strong; I'm just not inspired. I look at design blogs and I'm so inspired by people who do all these DIY projects and decorate on a budget and having amazing looking homes as a result. I think that part of my problem is not really knowing what I want or what we can do with what we've got (um, not high ceilings for one thing...), and I'm drawn to cluttery-ish interiors, but it just looks messy when we amass too much stuff. I know that eclecticism needs to be done artfully and maybe I'm not that disciplined.

Then I watch an episode of Hoarders and start panicking and running around trying to find things to throw out and decide that all I want is a clean, stark, minimal Scandinavian home with no little collections of thrift store finds. Thankfully the internet allows me to spend an hour or so looking at other people's places. Escapism is good!
