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.

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

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.

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.

Is anyone else ready for winter (well, those of us in the States)?  Photos like this week’s space just open up the inner wintry spirit.  One look at this bright, airy space is enough to get the itch for snow (sitting inside, chilling…not driving in it).  And despite the glorious cold stuff packing gently outside of the room in this photo, the space retains a spectacularly cozy warmth due to the rich, warm wooden hues.  This is a coffee sipping, winter loving space indeed.  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.
