Spectacular views.  That about sums it up for this week’s space.  I’m almost tempted to close it up with that…but not yet.  The enormity of the floor to ceiling glass beautifully exposes the sheer immensity of the mountains crawling up the surrounding countryside.  Views like that just tend to put every single thing into perspective.  Ok, now I’m finished….take a moment to enjoy the view.  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.

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.

Some rooms are cozy…some are minimally sparse…some evoke peace, some exude class…others just make you want to get down to business.  This week’s space would inspire me to get all old school and break out the typewriter (yes, typewriter), light the ol’ pipe, throw a few ice cubes in the tumbler, and get to work.  It’s a slightly cramped, lived in space, but it’s that worn ambiance that gives it a dose of true character.  This room has seen and heard many stories; this room has life.  It’s certainly a book lover’s room.  Let the daydreams commence.

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 rooms are useful, and some rooms are fun…often, they’re both.  This week’s selection is a perfect marriage of the two, complete with clean lines, high ceilings, ample sunlight, a gang of reading material, and the best part?  A built in netted nook to take in the relaxed vibes and soak up the lazy, laid back ambiance.  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.

Ok, so this room isn’t 100% my perfectly brewed cup of tea, but it is important to highlight the qualities and characteristics of different spaces.  This week’s selection is definitely of the old, almost baroque style; heavy, ornate wood, lots of gold and shiny little accents and accouterments, and an overall density and stout robustness that screams quality craftsmanship.  So it’s a solid room, to say the least, reminiscent of the smoking/card playing rooms that appear in the classic movies.  And hey, it’s chock full of books and a sweet spiral staircase.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  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.

Sometimes you just crave comfort; the ability to sit back, kick the feet up, and just chill.  This week’s space is that kind of place.  It’s got that quiet, subdued, organic, laid back vibe that would mesh well with sunny afternoons, dreary rainy days, and every day in between.  It’s got just enough rough hewn elements to give it some edge, and just enough comfort tones to make you want to dive right in.  The tidy little book collection doesn’t hurt either.  Let the daydreams commence.
