No matter what the weather is like outside (it’s been raining here for several days), you can always find comfort in a cozy place to sit, read, and meditate on the issues of the day.
I thought I would show you my favorite place to get comfortable in our home. This sofa was one that I had my eye on for quite some time. I first saw this piece when my friend took me with her to visit an upscale furniture store. They had so many great pieces that I think I fell in love with several 🙂 This cottage style sofa was one of the pieces in the front showroom. When I saw it, I knew that it was just the type of sofa that I would love to have in our new home, but the price was out of reach for what I wanted to spend on one piece.
When we finished building our home and were ready to buy some furniture, my husband & I went back to that store, if nothing else, just to get some new decorating ideas. You can imagine my excitement when I stepped into the clearance section, only to find that “my sofa” was sitting there against the wall – marked “way” down from the original price! It was just sitting there waiting to go home with us 🙂
Needless to say – that week I found myself relaxing in my new cozy sofa, enjoying a good magazine & a hot cup of vanilla tea.
I love the feeling that you get when surrounded by the warmth of the “old world” colors. We use many shades of red, mustard, cream, blue, green, – and of course – always a good dose of black in the different rooms of our home.
The black coffee table is nice and big – wonderful for putting your feet up at the end of a long day.
The wooden bowl is an antique butter bowl that I bought at an auction for $1.
