Inspiration Files/Maybe Someday: painted floors

We have hard wood floors all through our house, and I love them. They could certainly be updated and refinished, and maybe they will be some day. I also really really love the idea of painted floors…maybe not everywhere, but somewhere. Maybe someday!

Inspiration Files: let it burn.

I never had a fireplace until we moved into this house almost 8 years ago. Now I know that I was SO missing out. Ours is a gas fireplace, and not at all fancy, but I lovelovelove when it starts getting chilly enough to turn it on…it’s just like automatic cozy and just makes the room so homey. ♥ And I’ve only accidentally left it on twice when we’ve left the house. Yay me!

Inspiration Files: Lounging

I suspect this may be perceived as a bit cliche by some…but I really have always loved a chaise longue (lounge)…or recamier…or meridienne…any form of what you might call a fainting couch. There’s something very glamorous about a chaise, even those that are more shabby or primitive in design. I suppose it could be due to the images it conjures of fancy ladies lounging about, eating chocolates and cooling themselves with feathered fans, whilst wearing elegant silk gowns. Right? Is it just me?
