In the past I’ve done a few posts called “Good Looking Ugly Stuff” because your toilet brushes and cleaning tools shouldn’t have to be ugly. I’m the kind of person who is genuinely happier when every thing in our home, down to the dish rag, is in harmony with one another aesthetically. It might sound extreme, but I challenge you to replace those lime green kitchen rags with something that you actually love and see how you feel. You interact with these things every day after all, and you can have both beauty and function!

    Yes! I totally agree with this. Things you look at and use every day should bring you (some) joy. I have a hard time finding beautiful buckets! Even a fun color will help but the only one close is the ugly red bucket from Target. Buckets that are not metal and not kids!
