happy weekend...



These two gorgeous images remind me of a book I have, called "Your Home As A Sanctuary". It's all about creating that inviting, light-filled space, that feels relaxing, yet energizing in that totally zen kind of way. A mixture of new and old things in neutral shades seems to really do that for me. I love the old wardrobe above with mixed frames of family photos, paired with a neat and tidy bed, smoothed out and tucked in to perfection. Even the way they just stacked the pillows like that gives a sense of balance and order to the room. I also really like the idea of a round table in the diningroom where everyone can converse easily. And those french doors and hardwood? Perfect!

I hope you all have a relaxing and beautiful weekend, hopefully the sun will come to play too. I'm headed to yoga tomorrow morning, and getting started on a new design project. As always, thank you so much for stopping by... there's quite a few new followers this week, so thank you, thank you! Can't leave without a few links of course... have a good one!


Also, stay tuned for a giveaway coming up on Monday - perfect for Valentine's Day!
