a cozy place. to sit and think.
to rest my feet while digging into a new website design.
the right lighting to jot ideas in my “big idea journal” for safe keeping. watercolors abound.
a minimalist approach to living.
the more you have. the more that owns you.
each item in my home is intentional. intentionally placed in its spot. right where it should be.
why did it take so long to find my favorite living room color scheme? it speaks to me.
coral & teal & navy blue provide a soothing palette of inspiration amidst the mostly cream colored home that i rent.
architectural teal candle holder / coral vase from TJMaxx / “a” mug from Anthro
handmade pillows / lamp from Lamps Plus
this is perhaps the place i spend the most time. nestled on the couch with children reading books. with my reliable laptop working feverishly. with Pandora pouring out melodies as the clock passes through past midnight.
yes, i’m definitely bragging about the steal i found on this lamp. truly. amazing. truly. i can actually SEE what i’m doing without a glaring overhead lamp made from flourescent nonsense.
i’m thinking a simple DIY of the lampshade using some textured fabric. or maybe i’ll just leave it plain. or maybe wrap it in a map.
jotting ideas down in my “big idea journal” next!
stunning. right? i love the colors in this room and will continue to add flourishes of lovely color and elegant, comfortable beach-style until we move again!
a small collection of clear bottles filled with desk accessories. my vintage letter “a” wooden stamp, thumbtacks, a simple & beautiful orchid that i have successfully kept through this second blooming (this is a rarity) + my other new lamp. seriously. why did i take so long to choose new lamps?
the best thing about boxes arriving from online shopping? this face full of batman-finesse.
