What a pretty little vignette.

 It's Wednesday today, and a general not-feeling-like-doing-much-of-anything kind of day.

I've washed our linens and will eventually get around to some much needed vacuuming, but for now I think I might snuggle a while with Willen under our duvet and read together. Though the temperatures are mild for November, the drizzling rain and dreary skies are making us feel a little lazy this morning.

Here are some beautiful images to inspire you.

I love the simplicity of this stairway, and the perfect contrast of the dark, rich woods and the bright, crisp whites. I love the collection of framed artwork (something I always have my eye out for), and I would love to find that exact bench and pretty cushions - It's perfect!

I can't think of a cozier place to curl up on a day like today. It just needs a lush knitted throw and a warm cup of tea.

Another great Butchers Pantry! I love so much about this space... where to start?

1- That sofa. It's gorgeous.
2- The cream walls with beautiful built-ins and ceiling details.
3 - The runner. I've been looking for something just like this for when we remove the carpeting in our hall.
4- The Dutch door in the background!
5 - If this space had a sink - say in the white cabinet in the front right of the photo, this would make the perfect space for arranging fresh flowers.
6 - The storage without the look of storage: Notice the simple hooks under the painting to the left? And all those simple bins that could house so many different things. The umbrella bucket and all the doors on the table?

I always think this is a dramatic looking kitchen. I love the rich wood counters and the simple white cabinets, but I think it's the old hardware, the fantastic faucet and the striking floors that make this kitchen so pretty.

And finally, (seemingly opposite to my own personal style!) this pretty writing desk. I'm white walls all the way, but something about these dark, charcoal walls makes this little space so cozy and warm. The desk is a beautiful piece (though I would find a different chair), and the whole little set up is perfectly inviting. I would actually incorporate this into my home!


  1. It is great !!! love from me............♥.. ♥... ♥....

  2. Such pretty images. Perfect for dreaming on a dreary day.

    Sigh....if only. I think you've just dreamed my dream house. :) Especially the kitchen.

  5. Definitely inspirational images ~ love that little reading nook ♥

  6. I have those days too. You have days where you just want to lay around and do nothing. I think these days you should do that. Time for yourself is good.
