On my last buying trip to Paris, I snapped this photo of a cabbage as we strolled thru the Boulevard Raspail market. I have looked at it so many times since my return. I am struck by the beauty & simplicity of what some would consider an ordinary thing–a cabbage.

I think many times in design, rooms get over-filled. Things become chaotic. Items are placed in a room just to fill it up. It becomes harder for the eye to focus and find a resting place. “Only have in your home, what you truly love” is a thought I keep coming back to. Sometimes the simplest rooms are the most unique and pretty. Constant editing of your interiors will keep them fresh.

I am brought back to the simplicity of that cabbage. Like nature, sometimes the most basic, is the most beautiful.
