I call the walls "Tiffany Blue"

I recently got to spend the weekend at Seabrook, this amazingly adorable/perfect neighborhood on the Washington coast.  My friend and I stayed in this lovely little cottage; I felt as if I were in the pages of a Pottery Barn catalogue.  The whole development is only a few years old, so there was this fresh, clean feeling everywhere.  Add a little ocean air, and I was soon making statements like, “When I get home I’m getting rid of everything and starting over!” (which was an improvement on my previous “Honey, I won’t be coming home” phone call.)

The whole visit had me thinking about how important a clean, organized space is to the creative process.  I’ve been taking car loads of stuff to Goodwill over the past few months, and the whole routine of picking over my things to choose what stays and goes has really made me think about what objects I want in my life.  I’m currently on the path of choosing beautiful and meaningful things to look at and use, rather than holding on to things “just because”.

My space is not ready to be photographed quite yet, but I will keep looking at my beach cottage photos to keep myself inspired and motivated!

This is not a movie set- these are real houses!
