Decorate With Natural Simplicity

Paring one’s home decor down to what you love and is beautiful helps with the essence of establishing simplicity and calm.

Here is a beautiful paragraph adapted from the book Timeless Beauty that seems to articulate this sense:

“It is one of beauty’s sweetest attributes that its appreciation slows things down; it can never be savored in a rush or fret. Quite the opposite; its enjoyment depends on patience, silence, calm and respect. And an openness of mind. Delight in beauty not only provides an experience which offers calm and self-forgetfulness but one that enables us to feel, to see, to live and to cherish. The enjoyment of beauty can help us regain our sanity and concentrate on the present, the now. Nowness is the magic of the present moment.”

Here are seven inspirational ideas from Annie and Cait on ways to bring timeless beauty into your home:
