Smart Home

smarthome-2I do love the new year. Even though it usually means the end of Christmas — and I LOVE Christmas — it’s a chance for a fresh start. Once we finally (and this year it took longer than usual) put away all the decorations, the house feels open and clean. I’ve been spending a LOT of time in our living room since Alexander was born (we got a FireStick on our TV in the living room which means I basically live on the couch). Anyway. I look around this room all day everyday and I have to say, I’m really in love with it. Alan and I have spent a lot of time making this room hip and modern, with touches of Minneapolis & North Woods flavor. smarthome-14Decorating a home is an evolving process, trying to balance tastes (which can change) and trends (which can definitely change). Recently I’ve really begun to lean in to the house’s natural Mid-Century Modern trappings, which meant embracing gold and darker wood. I’ve spent a lot of years pining after the ultra-modern Swedish look — minimalist, light natural pine, lots of black and white — but we’ve gone in a decidedly more Danish-Modern direction, which is totally cool too.smarthome-15 smarthome-8 smarthome-10 smarthome-1-2 smarthome-17

So, anyway, I’m today offering a little mood board inspired by my own home. mcm
