The Art of Un-Decorating

Happy Saturday, kids! I hope you're all loving your weekend so far. I'm off to the Grove today for the SimplyStylist conference (more on that later), but I wanted to share with you a little something before I go.

One of my favorite trends in the interior design world right now is something known as "un-decorating". Its hard to put into words, so i'll make a comparison to - what else - the world of fashion. Un-Decorating is kind of like your chill, tomboy jeans-white-tee-and-chucks outfit. Timelessly cool and easy, but undeniably chic.

It can be implemented in tons of ways - a pile of interesting fabrics folded over an old chair in the corner, a polaroid or two taped to the wall with washi tape, or some old knickknacks and family treasures collected on a mirrored tray.

The way I'm un-decorating in my place is with this great old metal frame I picked up at a flea market here in LA. I just leaned it against the wall (hanging it just felt too "done") and used some cool clothespins to stick some of Nick & I's stuff to it.  

I'd love to hear about your adventures in un-decorating. Tell me what you came up with in the comments below - or, send me a link with some pictures of your project! Can't wait to see. x
