After putting my neck and shoulder out and being confined to the sofa with a heat pack yesterday, I consoled myself by flicking through the delicious online home decor magazine Lonny and immediately fell in love with this room.
On cold wintery days I often dream about open fires, and this one is perfection with the vases of pink peonies perched above the fireplace and the ray of sunshine mirror. I can just imagine being curled up on the sofa listening to the crackling fire while sipping hot tea.
It made me think about all of the little things that make me ‘home happy’. My hubby brought me fresh flowers last week and they made me smile every time I looked at them.
I also have an obsession with bathrooms – I love luscious hand towels and french hand soaps, it’s a little daily indulgence.
It’s often the interesting little touches that make a house a home, it’s incredible what a few cushions, candles and coffee table books can do to a place. That’s my other obsession – coffee table books. I don’t have that many, but if I could, I would fill my house up with dozens of them and create a little reading corner just like this….. sigh.
What little touches make you home happy?
What makes you feel better when you’re out of action?0
