I love my home!
It is a beautiful sunny day outside and the sun is streaming in on this unusually warm January day. The sunlight gives such a lovely glow to my home and I just had to pick up the camera and start taking pictures. A dear friend Jann suggested that when taking photos it is best to do so without the flash. So I gave that a try today and was very pleased with the results.
One of the reasons I love my home so much is that my husband and I have worked hard to give it a warm and welcoming feeling. I have used warm golds, browns and reds to convey a spirit of love and friendship. My family room and living room are two of my favorite rooms in my home. Neither room has a T.V. and that was a conscious decision on my part. I wanted these rooms to be a place for interaction and reflection but not "couch potato" T.V. viewing (we have other rooms for that). So these rooms are for relaxing, board games, conversation and reading. Both rooms have wonderful vintage finds (another hobby of mine when I am not scrappin') that make me feel a sense of heritage and affection.
I think everybody should have a place in their home that makes them feel happy. A place they can find respite and peace. A place they can connect with their family. What are your favorite rooms in your home and why?
