i adore photos like this. clean, spare, just a bit imperfect with the bags strewn around and the scarf tossed casually across the chair.

so why, precisely - when i don't put my bag away, or a laptop case gets left on the floor - does it just look like mess?

  1. I don't know. I felt the same way once when I read that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had piles of books throughout either her home or office, and it supposedly looked very planned and elegant. I tried having piles of books for a while in our living room, and it just looked as if I didn't have enough room for all of my books so I plunked them down in any old spot.
