How sparse is too sparse?  How minimal can a room be before it becomes sterile and utterly devoid of comfort?  That’s a fine line, and it’s different for us all.  This week’s space is my kind of space (I do love them all, though); clean lines, minimal elements, and large windows.  The perfect way to be mindful of the present; the perfect space to clear your head, gather your thoughts, and enjoy the endless beauty beyond the windows.  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.

I’ll have to admit that this particular space may not be for everyone.  BUT, for those with a penchant for solitudinous beauty, this room has value.  Here, the major sticking points are in the minor touches; as if more is accomplished with less.  Large, expansive windows open up the room and flood it with gorgeous natural light, and the space is warmed gently by the judicious use of wood throughout.  What gets me is the lack of material elements which often clutter a space; in this area, we only see some essential items.  A space to rest and a space to work, which wonderfully  highlights the paramount bit; the immensity of the view.  Perfection.  Let the daydreams commence.

Man, this week’s space really gives one the urge to take a bath.  The room exudes a powerful sense of quiet and calm, and the angular, minimal aspects provide a clever dose of mind clearing peace.  This space is oozing with de-stressing mojo.   And the view?  No words necessary.  Let the daydreams commence.

Is it just a room, or is it something more?  At first glance, one may not celebrate its ambiance.  At first glance, it looks like, well…just a room.  Nothing more than a bed and a window; but what’s on the surface can often be deceiving.  What’s celebrated here is simplicity; in the rugged, organic structure of the bed, complemented thoughtfully by the sturdy nightstand, all while gently being watched over by a minimal floor lamp.  But all of that frames the highlight of the space…the window.  That lush, sylvan view adds just a touch of beautiful complication to the stillness.  Let the daydreams commence.

Library Lusting.

What elements constitute a legendary home library?  A few books?  A handful of bookshelves? Some unique architectural elements that most folks can only dream of?  Some home setups have all of the above, and then some.  This week’s pick is that sort; a truly immense space, stacked to the rafters full of books, a space reminiscent of a true library rather than one tucked away in a home.  One would definitely have to up one’s book acquisition game in order to fill the gang of space on those shelves!  Let the daydreams commence.

Peaceful. That word sums this space up succinctly. Soft natural sunlight flooding over the room by way of a massive floor to ceiling window, a sturdy workspace, a comfy chair pulled close to it for some close proximity relaxation, and a beautiful wall of books. Simple perfection; this is without a doubt a book lover's room. Let the daydreams commence.
