There are many things I'd like to change or rearrange in my home. Right now, we need a new sofa, and I am dreading the process and transition. I'm also starting to feel the urge to paint things. Oh, boy… But there are certain corners in my house that I love all over again all the time, those spots and angles where I feel like I got it right somehow.
I've confessed here before that I keep my decorating magazines FOR YEARS. Seriously. And there are certain homes and vignettes that I go back to again and again, much the same way I return to certain blogs over and over.
What does this mean? That I am too cheap to buy new magazines? Definitely not. I have way too many, though not all of them become a part of what I call the "permanent collection."
I think it means these corners and spaces tell a story of some kind. They make the viewer feel they are being invited inside the lives of the people who reside there. This is my theory anyway. Here are a few corners I still like!
I love this desk and the painting and the silver box and the faux pears and the corner cabinet and the new (old) chair and that pink striped pillow.
I love the fresh, clean look of the white dental molding and the Tiffany lamp and the yellow chair, and I still really, really love the draperies I had made for this room.
There isn't much flowers and candles can't fix. They can lift a dull room or a bad mood.
I also love the match holder, a recent find.
Usually, I try indoor plants during the winter months. Sometimes this goes well.
But I like this little guy in my window.
What do plants say about a home?
While my family room (see below) drives me crazy this time of year because it is WAY TOO SMALL, I never
tire of the vistas on this hill.
Living in the country has many perks, and this is one of them.
What does your home say about you?
