bea's 5 r's of zero-waste are:
refuse (what you don't need)
reduce (what you do need)
reuse (what is left)
...and only in that order
there are still things to refuse to bring into the other rooms and things to reduce out of these rooms as well.
during this check-in, i was able to clear out that basket under the bench... a few things got recycled, chargers were relocated into a basket in the closet, and one unused item was donated. a couple of things were removed from the wall and a large woven circle was hung above the bed (right over top of the shell hanging). there is a row of hooks next to the closet, and i removed a couple things. all in all, editing prevailed in the bedroom. i tried to apply my own advice from the simple home style posts and leave only a very few things that communicate the vibe i want in this room. i think the baskets (both on the wall and under the bench), a straw hat hanging on the hook, a vintage throw on the bed, and the plants communicate a laid-back natural bohemian vibe. :) the color palette is limited and the feel of each piece is cohesive.
my closet will get a more detailed check-in soon.
