All month long we've talked about how to embrace your space, where you are with what you have. It's been just as inspiring for me as it seems to have been for you. I've loved all your comments, tweets, emails, and messages - sharing your journey to contentment that I've been taking along with you. I'm honestly always amazed when I find that there are others out there with the same struggles that I have, because from the outside looking in, we see the perfection of others and compare it to our flaws. We've taken this entire month to explore all of those feelings, and hopefully I've inspired you just a little to make your home exactly what you want it to be.
Inspiration can come from a million and one places in our high tech world: Pinterest, blogs, Facebook, Instagram, magazines, and my favorite of all... books. When you find a book that you connect with to the core, then it becomes a part of you. Maybe it's a work of fiction, an autobiography, or it might just be a decorating book. No matter which kind of literary work it might happen to be, when you do find that one book that inspires you, it's like a nugget of gold.
Miss Mustard Seed, recently wrote a gorgeous book that's one of those kind for me. Although there are a few tutorials, it's mostly the story of her home and how she made it hers on a shoestring budget.
She's been such an inspiration through her blog for years, but there is something so tangible about holding an actual book in your hands with her ideas that makes it come to life even more. Between her love affair for painted furniture and her use what you have spirit - it's an attainable and affordable look that anyone can achieve.
No matter if you love her signature look with the chippy vintage vibe, or if you're just looking to learn more about how to embrace your own personal look - this book is a winner on all levels.
