.thirty-one days of minimalism: decor.

I spent a brief post on seasonal decor, but I wanted to share a bit about minimalism and my every day decor.

After our last move in the spring, my husband confessed to me that his absolute least-favorite move-in task was hanging pictures. This was after he had finished unloading the entire moving truck himself (I was 7 mos. pregnant) and painting a huge wall in our living room. So I knew he wasn't joking around.


Since we have at least two more moves in the next year (thank you, Marine Corps), I thought to myself, why? Why continue to make an already stressful thing like moving, even more stress?

So we made the decision to go more minimalist with our decor. We no longer have any picture frames to hang up. And it made our move so much easier!


But we had this very dated mantle when we moved...

So what to do, what to do?


We did keep my favorite mirror to hang (it was a wedding present and I just love it!

I also wanted some pictures of my sweet family.

And I have just been loving these photo panels. They are available from most photo-product websites. Easy to move, no breakable glass, and will work in a variety of spots, just in case we don't have a mantle in our next home.


Sometimes, it's the little things that can make a big difference!



  1. Are the photo panels canvas? I love that idea :) It looks great!

    1. They are actually plastic. Easy to dust, and virtually unbreakable!
