Happy New Year. Its the beginning of a new year and at our home it means that al the christmas decorations are packed away and I always use that opportunity to clear away even more things. It's a chance to look at my home with fresh eyes: When things are brought back to basic it makes us think of new ways to put things back. What should be put in a new place - what was already perfect as it was. January can be such a dark month but buy some tulips and put in a pretty vase and you can find true beauty in the simplest of things. I have found some pictures to inspire you - it's simple and minimalist homes. Not because you need to make your home look like this but to make you see things in a new light perhaps.
