"Neat"







Good morning! I think one of the reasons I'm in love with images of people's homes and creative spaces is that the cluttered messes become works of art. It gives me hope. Maybe if you took a really excellent shot of my extremely horrific craft closet, someone would think it was "neat!"

i think we would because it would be your craft closet and you are so neat.

Great shots!! Hmmm! I wonder if i should take a picture of my craft space. :)

Miss Aimee said...

I think you need to do that! A picture of your closet. I just have a feeling it would be a work of art to someone else. step back friend, and do it!

one person's trash is anothers treasure, right? (not saying that your craft closet is trash, not at all!)

i think it's got something to do with the fact that it's not *your* mess. you don't have to look at it everyday, wondering how you can rearrange it to make it look more organized. when it's disorganized in photos, you can look at it and move on with your otherwise tidy(ish) life, and partake in the peeling wallpaper as a quick escape whenever you feel like you need some controlled chaos.

Hope your 2009 has been filled with beauty so far!! :)

I always wonder about this too! Other people's messes seem artistic, whereas mine just seems lazy.

What makes all these photos beautiful and "neat" is the light. Light fills these pics, and your blog :)

I don't really know why these semi messy art spaces are so "neat". I wish mine was photographical.

I love this collection of photos! The beauty int he clutter. Especially the one with all the paper hanging.

Tina said...

these rooms are all so beautiful, they should definitely stay as they are! (not sure if the owners would agree with that... ;)
