Peaceful. Some rooms exude it….some don’t. This week’s space lives up to every meaning of the word. It features many of the usual modern architectural elements; large windows, unobtrusive furnishings, and a sharpness to detail that highlights the interior design as much as the surroundings outside. Great architecture incorporates both sides of the coin and blends the two seamlessly, and it works here. It’s quiet, rustic, simple, and the rich wooden hues add a warmth to contrast the frost outside. Give me some coffee, and I’m there (although I’d still be there even if I didn’t have coffee). 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.
Coffee and snow; two things that pair excellently. By themselves, they’re great…throw in a kick ass wintry view, and the stock rises exponentially. This week’s space would be the perfect way to enjoy both of them…and then some. Large, airy cooking space, a wood fired stove…a lovely little place to eat, and off to the corner, a small comfort nook to sit and reflect (and guzzle that coffee). Mornings here would most certainly recharge the soul. Let the daydreams commence.
There’s a great, organic simplicity here…autumn is profoundly represented in the solitude of the tree, and in the solemnity of the gray sky. They play well off of one another. Quintessential Schiele, this one. Thanks for taking a look…Enjoy!
