White Wednesday

I've been looking at this room all day...Perhaps I'm so drawn to it because it is very similar to my own room. Though, my room still needs some work. Luckily, I have already taken some pointers from this one and now I just need more pillows to get the full comfy effect!

Pre-Light Living

My boyfriend started a new job that gets us out of bed long before dawn. After we finish our breakfast and he leaves for work, there's still no sign of the sun. I've always had a fondness for early, early mornings with their uncomplicated quiet beauty. Gareth McConnell's Night Flowers remind me of these mornings when the day has not yet been defined and mystery lurks in the atmosphere.

Springtime in December

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I was lucky enough to spend the holiday with my boyfriend and his family. His sister Ariel did an amazing job decorating their house for the festivities. Filled with greens and candlelight, it was both beautiful and cozy. I only wish I had pictures to share with everyone.

After Christmas, the world seemed to think it was alright to skip the rest of winter and go straight to spring. The temperature reached nearly 60 degrees here yesterday! We celebrated the unseasonal weather with a balmy hike through the not yet melted snow of last week's storm. I found myself craving pinks and greens, sunshine and breezes.(Photos from Sandra Lane via Sarah Kaye and Christophe Dugied via Cote Maison)

I had a great Christmas Vacation and I loved the slight taste of spring, but I'm happy to be back home and back to regular winter weather.(Photo from Cote Maison)

The weather outside is frightful

But these rooms are so delightful!

Such a colorful contrast to the white that is currently dominating the outdoor color scheme. Perfect for sleeping and reading in on a snowy Sunday. (That dog has the right idea.)

On a dreary day...

Nothing's better than fresh towels

Fresh flowers

And a warm drink

I am a sucker for all things purple. So you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across this photo today...

I'm really loving the girl on the right. She looks so cute and comfortable with just the right amount of sass for good measure.

How great is this headboard? Dear boyfriend, let's find a piece of wood and stick it to our wall ASAP.It's just the perfect piece to balance an otherwise flowery space. Raw and rustic and so lovely.
