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.
Sometimes, many different flavors can combine to create one larger, greater concoction. Such is the case with this week’s space. This room is somewhat of a gumbo; many varied elements and premises all tossed carefully and creatively into one large stew pot. We’ve got some comfort elements (plush chairs and a sofa) for maxing and relaxing, a studious little nook (a great little desk and window pairing) for taking care of business, a fireplace for a little heat and crackle, and a mass of books so large that this room could double as the east wing of your local library. It has it all, and it just works. This is without a doubt a book lover’s room. Let the daydreams commence.
In times like these, unity is crucial.
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.
My father often reminds me, "it's always something." Life does indeed tend to throw some curveballs, fastballs, and pretty much everything else at us; we can either get slammed in the face with those pitches, or we can try our best to swing hard and knock them out of the park. How we respond to adversity matters greatly. Best of luck to all, and thanks for reading.
