“At the worst, a house unkept cannot be so distressing as a life unlived.”
Dame Rose Macaulay ((1881-1958)
My grandma used to smile sometimes with a shrug of her shoulders and refer to the famous piece of French wisdom, “It’s a beautiful mess”. Her home was always wonderfully kept; a welcoming place full of flowers and fresh baking. But this attitude helped her enjoy her grandchildren and embrace life’s imperfections.
Because life comes first, and there is a real wisdom in arranging our priorities and our spaces with that in mind.
A home doesn’t have to be Pinterest perfect. It doesn’t have to sport the most stylish and expensive decor. It doesn’t have to be spotless.
The real joy comes from creating a space where we can live fully. A place that expresses who we are, and that enables us to do the things that really matter to us.
After all, there is a profound beauty in living life well.
