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.

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

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.

This week’s space is somewhat of a cross between Library Lusting and SnowPorn; we have all of the wintry goodness of one, coupled with the literary beauty of the other.  This room is a neat little mix of rugged, rustic charm, with just enough of each element to keep it minimal and yet still comfortable at the same time.  That’s a hard combination to achieve.  And c’mon…snow, a stout little potbelly stove, and books just go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Give me a hot cup of coffee and I’m set.  Let the daydreams commence.

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.

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.
