On one of those seemingly rare days when I see a golden sphere in the sky that I vaguely remember as being the sun, I try to do two things...bask for a few moments in its warm rays and then take advantage of all the wonderful light and find something to photograph. A few weeks back, when we were blessed with one of those beautiful days, I managed to snap a few shots of not only the dining room, but the living room too.
Sticking to my love of a simple and natural decorating scheme, I mostly just freshened up the room with some pretty pink hydrangeas and a few little accessories. I'm figuring out that my favorite style is a nice, light look with lots of texture and a bright pop of color.
Don't you just love hydrangeas?! They make me think of summer. This variety is called Firelight. I've seen conflicting information about the zone hardiness, so I'm not sure if they would survive in our climate. I figure when things warm up outside, I'll plant them and hope for the best, but otherwise I've sure enjoyed looking at those big pink flowers here in the house.
Oh, remember when I talked about painting my armoire? Well, one of the things I was so excited to do when I finished that project was to organize the inside...crazy, I know!
Anyway, even though it doesn't happen too often around here, I totally subscribe to the idea of a place for everything and everything in its place. So I got rid of a few things, bought some baskets and boxes for the rest and managed to cram all my art and crafty stuff into the armoire. See?!
Those fabric covered boxes weren't quite the look I was going for, but after driving here, there and everywhere I figured that they were good enough and just rolled with it. It feels nice to open the doors and actually be able to find what I'm looking for. Yay!!
My current project has been my daughter's little fort under the stairs...or the Cottage, as she's been calling it. It's such a dark space, but if I can get some okay photos, I'll show you when I'm all finished dolling it up.
Well, lovely people, that's all for today...hope you have a good weekend and that you see the sun!
