Wise Words // Design Sponge Manifesto


Happy Tuesday!! How was everyone's weekend?!

I spent Friday - Sunday painting my bedroom and upstairs bathroom, so yeah Monday's arrival didn't feel too bad compared to all that.  I love how it turned out and I can start to see some real progress, but that's another story for another time! 


If you're an avid design blog reader you are probably very familiar with the genius that is Design Sponge; if you're not take the time to get to know them! They have oodles of DIY tricks, tips, inspiration and general design goodness to discover, but most recently they've come out with a new mission statement that I wanted to share with you all. It's 10 simple, lovely and inspiring reminders to keep with you when designing your home.  As a designer myself I know all too well how it can quickly become overwhelming trying to pull a space or home together into one cohesive look and feel.  (Heck, that's basically why I have a job in the first place; To create order out of the chaos and help bring your beautiful vision to life!)

But honestly, sometimes you just need a gentle reminder that it's your home and your home alone, so you can do whatever you damn well please to the inside! Happy Reading :)

Check out the full story and their new mission statement here!

I personally love the overall tone they're promoting; it's approachable, relaxed and hopefully gives you some confidence going into your next project! Which lesson hit your heart strings the most?
