A Bowl Full of Simple | Home Office Inspiration

I am finally designing a small home office for myself.  I’ve been dreaming of this dedicated workspace for so long!  I tried the office-in-the-kitchen thing, did NOT work for me.  Then when we remodeled in 2009, I built a small desk space in the mudroom/laundry room which was way too small.  Then I started a little business called A Bowl Full of Simple and spent the first 2 years blogging in all sorts of various locations around our home. More recently, my desk has been moved into my bedroom which I vowed I would never do.  I hate the idea of work being in the same place as rest, but it had to be done.  It’s actually been ok since my bedroom has so many windows and is at the back of the house, it almost feels like I’m sitting in the garden.  It’s been a long time coming but am really excited to soon have a perfect little space all my own.  I’ll keep you all posted on the progress once it gets underway.  It couldn’t be better timing actually as things around my little corner of the inter web are about to take on a whole new look.  I’m so excited to share it with you all soon!  But for now, here are a few rooms that have been inspiring me as I dream up what my space will look like.

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than one seeks.  - John Muir There was a time in our family life when little moments together were easy to come by.  When we had Saturdays free to play and explore and nap times which offered quiet time at home.  When my oldest entered grade […]

Inspiration | Entryways

January 15, 2015

It’s no secret that I am a certified purger.  Let’s call it professional editor.  I’m constantly in a state of editing our home and find myself incredibly gratified by the look of a clean surface, empty drawer or lightened up closet. There’s something so inviting, like the possibilities are limitless.  I feel like work is […]

A Bowl Full of Simple | Napa Getaway

No matter how badly I wanted to forget my birthday this year, my sweet husband was not going to let that happen.  You see, the thing about having a birthday at the end of the year for me, is that I rarely want to celebrate.  Whether it be because of residual childhood memories of no […]

Christmas Tree Hunting

A Bowl Full of Simple |  Christmas Tree Hunting

Quite possibly my favorite day of the year.  It rivals swimming in the ocean and snuggling my littles at bedtime. Hunting for our Christmas tree feels that good.  We load everyone up, bring along hot cocoa and often a picnic and head for the hills.  My husband and I have been doing this ever since […]
