Swedish serenity!

Oh my. After looking at these pictures I'm starting to think that my apartment has far too much clutter, and way too few "proper places" for everything. These images really iterate what a big impact a thoughtful color palette can have on one's space. Sometimes I feel that in order to achieve this I would have to toss everything out and just start from scratch; only buying or collecting items that fall into the color palette I've dictated. Have you achieved this in your space? If so, I'd love to know how you summoned the control!

One of my new favorite images of all time. So cheerful and pretty!


Look! Open storage that isn't an eyesore!

I don't know if anyone really lives here... ;)


You can never, ever have too many shelves installed on the wall. I've never regretted any that I've added!

You can put a lot of stuff in a little space with the right storage solutions

I love this workspace. I've been working on a small (but cute) desk since I moved, and sadly, it's just not working. I really need a large surface like this desk.

I really love the little rolling coffee table- great for small spaces

The Swedish people are big on white.
You are so right to call it serene!

Am I the only person in the whole who has books that can't possibly be colour-coded? Sigh!
As much as I love this whole apartment, I'm completely infatuated with the crate bedside table. Must have!

I know what you mean about wanting to achieve a consistent color palette but feeling like you'd have to start from scratch to do so. Right now our apartment does have a pretty consistent color scheme---but that's only because I only buy things in shades of beige, grey and white. Don't get me wrong, I love neutrals---but I would kill to have the courage to start working in some color. I'm just so afraid that once I start down one path, I won't be able to go anywhere else!
