Everything about this little space gives me the snowy smiles (whatever the snowy smiles are, this photo conjures them up).  It’s a quiet corner tucked away gently…we don’t even need to envision the home itself to appreciate the calming peace that this corner exudes.  It’s just enough of the rustic to give it an edge, and just enough comfort to give it warmth.  And you can’t beat the view.  I’d cozy up here with my coffee and drift away easily.  Let the daydreams commence.

Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week’s great wintry space.

Some spaces try do a lot with a little, while others attempt to accomplish the minimal…and end up over doing it.  Others meet that fine balance at the halfway mark.  I’d like to think that this week’s space is up to the task of achieving that desired balance.  Clean lines meet warm comfort, and that sweet spot is complemented gently by a quaint little fire and just enough open window to give the owners a perfect glimpse of winter.  Serve me up a cup of coffee and I’m there.  Let the daydreams commence.

Today’s selection is a SnowPorn pick on steroids; a quaint little space smack dab in the middle of a mountain.  What’s not to love?  If you’re an admirer of snowy solitude and the peaceful benefits that it provides, then this is your place…you can’t get more remote than this.  Clean lines and large windows…ample sunlight, and a bold, boss view looking right out into the depths of this wintry expanse.  Throw in some coffee and I’m golden.  Let the daydreams commence.

There's something very interesting here;
stark, structural simplicity blended tidily with a beautiful wash of snow swept countryside. A very striking combination when done right. One must admit that there is a raw, organic comfort in spaces like these; with uncomplicated, almost spartan furnishings, the emphasis is placed on the surroundings rather than the interior. As a result, both elements are enhanced considerably. And the little stout stove? Perfection. Let the daydreams commence.

Poems – Create.

While sipping the coffee this morning and thinking about my list of projects and to do’s, I thought about the importance of seeing my little ideas to fruition.  There was a time in my life when I didn’t realize how content I’d become with just thinking about ideas (and not doing a damn thing about them)…as if those ideas would just magically materialize out of thin air like some Harry Potter fantasy.  There are no magic wands…there’s just work.  Effort.  Consistency.  It’s easy to want to do something…it’s more of a challenge to formulate a plan.  A dream is just a pretty picture trapped in our heads until we take the time to mold them into reality.  Let’s get to work.  

Library Lusting.

There are many great combos in life; french fries and ketchup, Batman and Robin, coffee and my mouth, and (drum roll, please) books and sunshine.  It’s the perfect pairing, and this room is a comfortably complete addition to that grouping.   It tidily intersects natural lighting with a handsomely useful workspace, and then throws in the mother of all reading nooks for good measure.  Who wouldn’t love to nestle in that monstrous window seat with a good glass of something, and just disappear into a few hundred pages (or into the view, which I’m imagining is stellar)?  And a fireplace, too?  C’mon, it doesn’t get any better.  This, my friends, is most certainly a book lover’s room.

Two words…this view.  This.  View.  For a lover of all things minimal, snowy, and mountainous (I am that person), this is the place.  Place yourself (the daydream begins here) in front of that slender, expansive window, looking out into the immensity of that horizon, and clear away all of the…well, just clear it all away.  Sit back and relax.  Enjoy the view.  And go get some coffee while you’re at it.
