No wonder I was so excited when I read this article from Stylist Home. Apparently, nostalgia is good for both you and your home. Pictures and mementos remind us of who we are and who we want to be, despite the everyday pressures of jobs, families and more. That brief moment where you lose yourself in a picture from Thanksgiving 1999 is one of the best feelings in the whole wide world, honestly.
Instead of cleaning my room, I often find myself adjusting photos and cards and deciding what gets the spotlight during a particular moment in my life. Here are a few examples:
|Puppies. My grandma. And a vase full of wine and champagne corks from fun nights.|
|Collage on my wall by my bed. Sweet notes and sweeter faces.|
|A repurposed china cabinet topped with an Eiffel Tower 'borrowed' from a fraternity, as well as a UCLA globe and a sorority wreath. Precious (and ridiculous) memories.|
|Close up. Boy I love how good it feels to look around my room.|
