Here are a few behind-the-scenes tidbits, lest the pictures give you a false sense of perfection.
I know it's easy to look at these pictures and see a neat, uncluttered room and be impressed. Don't be too impressed. Behind the camera, I assure you, there were piles of random clutter that I cleared from the tabletops. I'm constantly shoving things in drawers when guests come over.
The night before I took the pictures, I was up in my studio, pulling an all-nighter (which means I was up until 11pm, ha!). I started by just organizing a few shelves with some IKEA supplies I had bought earlier that day, but it turned into a 'pull everything out and purge it all!" kind of night. My studio has never been more organized, and I doubt it will stay that way, but for now, it's refreshing.
If some of the pictures had audio, you would hear Silas in the background throwing a temper tantrum. My guess would be it was about something like I wouldn't let him pour his milk out on the floor.
Several of the pieces of art hung in my studio are held up with packaging tape. Desperate times...
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures and getting a glimpse into our home and decorating style. Head over to Heather's blog and get the full tour! Happy weekend!
