A Home Full of Comfort













I cannot believe that Friday is finally here! This afternoon, my Mom and I are setting out for a much needed mini break and to visit close family for the next few days. Heading into this weekend, I sought out photos of inspiration that offer a sense of freshness, serenity and beauty...

Isn't this home amazing? Beyond the abundance of textures, warmth and open, flowing spaces, a soothing palette of neutral tones makes the house a home, and truly inviting. There are so many great features about this place. I love the contrasting ceiling heights the coved and lowered ceiling in the living room area, as opposed to the vast and open ceiling in the kitchen area. I enjoy how the double story windows let the most lovely natural light flood into the space! The kitchen sink and (concrete) countertop are too wonderful for words, as it that ornate and embroidered headboard! I could go on and on about the details, but would like to know, what are a few of your favorites?

I hope you have a lovely weekend, whether you spend it relaxing at home, have a full schedule of projects and things to do, or are taking it as it comes, and seeing what heads your way...

  13. I almost dozed off while looking at these - not out of boredom, but sheer relaxation! Neutrals bring out texture so much. It may be a simple palette, but the environment is rich.

    With Love...
