Carving and Craving A Quiet Spot


Sometimes you just crave a quiet spot to reflect in this hectic world, and although we humans are (generally speaking) social animals it's important to have some alone time. It can be just a corner...


in a room for reading and writing, and just about anyone can carve out a space that is just for you!

A comfy chair is a great way to start creating a "me" corner and just let everyone else know that it's your private oasis. I often move my French chairs in the living room around to work or relax and all that is needed is a pillow and a throw...


A vintage alabaster light was moved in because with the rainy season I need more illumination when reading or writing notes...


 This weeks flowers included some sweet Freesia in the prettiest pastel pink...


Making every moment special with a treasured pen that was a gift and is from Tiffany. The notebook is from Shabby Chic Couture and I picked that up while in London...


A quiet spot in the living room on another day, and with minimal accessories it's simple to create a space for napping and reading...


Everyone asks about my white tufted sofa which was a thrift store find from several years back and I had it recovered in sturdy white denim. It's great for napping (which I don't often do:~) as I had a new cushion made that is stuffed with feather and down. Just pile on the blankets and pillows and I'm good to go...


 Set for a summer reading session with a glass of ice cold lemonade...


Just a few things have been moved and added, which took maybe 5 minutes. Easy living...summer living

Have a great day!

I dream of napping in a space exactly as you created. Holy moley it's pretty and SO INVITING!

You need to nap and tell us about your wonderful dreams you had while doing so. WOW, love it.

I need a nap on that gorgeous sofa right now.....I'm so exhausted from staining all day! lol I love how you creative the most gorgeous vignettes with the simplest things, Janet. Always so simple, soft, and serene. I'm hoping to do the same thing with my little boho porch soon. ;)
