Words to Live By

{Source}

Once upon a time, I tried to live by the philosophy called minimalism.  But as the kids take over the house with their toys and other prized possessions, it truly is an uphill battle. One that I think is not worth fighting.  I now choose to embrace a little clutter few collections of lovely things.  And my busy patterned couch hides my kids’ stains very well.  Maybe I am not fully rejecting the idea just yet.   But for now, we are happily adopting a lifestyle of ‘organized chaos.’

So tell me, what is your design philosophy?  I would really love to know!
