Here are a few pictures that show my current decor. Some of this will change when I move. The items we keep must represent and actively reinforce our core values. I have ten, and Jack has ten. Some of them overlap. Here’s the combined list:
Freedom Inspiration Problem-Solving Sharing
Creativity Adventure Integrity Magic
Simplicity Passion Communication Knowledge
Expression Dynamism Momentum Conservation
This is the living room wall.
The pages are scenes from Shakespeare’s Othello (one of our favorites.) They represent our value of Inspiration.
The frames I picked up at Goodwill for $.75 each. The twine is actually jute – I like it because it lays well against the wall. Of everything on this wall, only the actual prints will come with us when we move. These pictures of our wedding represent the values of Passion and Adventure.
The tiny clothespins allow me to change the photos easily when I want to use different ones.
This is the trim around the rest of the room.
I picked up a bundle of this green grass at Hobby Lobby. With my coupon, it cost $2, and there was enough left over to fill a large vase, had I wanted to. I love how the jute and grass fill me with a sense of Simplicity.
These gorgeous pieces will move with us. They roll up pretty small. We’ve made the decision to keep these because they represent some of our highest values: Freedom, Adventure, and Momentum. One day, we’ll go back to China. Until then, these scrolls inspire us to free ourselves financially and mentally.
We’ll take this poster when we move. This image represents several of our biggest values: Simplicity, Passion, Creativity, and Expression. We keep this poster as close to our workspace as possible.
This one hangs in our bathroom. It makes me smile when I look at it, partially because it reminds me of the values of Adventure, Magic. and Conservation. This will definitely make the move with us.
So there you have it! All of my decor. What do you think?
