Hello! I had an unplugged, computer/internet-free weekend that was unintentional. My internet access decided to not work all weekend. So I read, went to IKEA with my sister in law, niece and nephew, and watched almost the entire first season of Fringe on DVD. Also tackled the last room in my apartment that needed some paring down and prettying up.
I can tell you now (because they're gone - the piles that is) that I was living with a couple piles of clothes and linens in my bedroom (can we say "teenager"?!) - and sighed over them daily. Turns out if you set your timer for 15 minutes at a time and just start working on a project that you've procrastinated on, you can make excellent progress. The piles to dresser drawer and linen closet process took a timer setting of 15 minutes then an additional 4 minutes.
I love this home and wardrobe of designer Momo Suzuki from a closet tour on Jeana Sohn's blog. Jeana sums up perfectly why Momo's wardrobe and home are so appealing:
"Momo Suzuki is a Japanese born clothing designer (Her line is called Black Crane) and jewelry maker. She lives with her designer husband Alexander Yamaguchi in Los Angeles. Momo is multi talented, funny, pretty and super nice!
Momo's closet was simple, pared down, and felt well composed. A lot of clothes and jewelry were from her and her husband's lines. The pieces from her line are very minimal and loose fitting but the patterns are completely unique and interesting.
I was very inspired by Momo's style and the way she decorated her space. I learned from her that you can still be stylish without having a big closet and that simplicity is a powerful statement. Everything about her was so natural and a lesson in elegant simplicity - her hair, her barely there make up and her simple jewelry,,,. How about her beautiful apartment? I can keep going on and on.. "
