This started as an idea ahead of the holidays. I kept thinking about all the waste associated with gift giving. The packaging, the wrapping, the stuff that ends up in a landfill. What began as a seed to reduce gift-giving waste, turned into me looking at our everyday lives and how we could reduce our consumption and most importantly, our single-use items.
When we bought our house 4 years ago it had been completely renovated which meant everything was fresh and white. A blank canvas. We started decorating and adding our personal touches, but still kept our neutral walls. I love the aesthetic of a crisp white home, but after 4 years I got a little bored and antsy to make some changes; our main-floor powder room seemed like the best place to start.
I love to joke with my Ma that one of my greatest joys as a parent is to give Bea all the things I wanted as a kid. And I assure you I’m joking, because I did have the best childhood with the best parents.
