Comfort is perhaps the most ultimate luxury
I live in a historic home dating back to the late 1700's...that's right, it's got lots of character, and little idiosyncrisies, that only a homeowner could love...noisy radiators, low ceilings,
( i think i have a permanent egg on my head from descending into my basement)
....and creaky stairs and floorboards
....but, I happen to love my house and infact, I feel very comfortable and cozy when I am inside...
So, I got to thinking,
What makes a home or a favorite room comfortable?
Why do certain rooms appeal to us more than others...?
Is it surrounding yourself with soothing colors, soft tones, cozy furniture, family photos, all wrapped up in your own personal style? Is it the glow of candlelight or the blaze of the fireplace that puts you at ease. Is it the new zebra stools you found that screamed take me home...
or is it the perfect blue you found at the paint store...?
For me, it's a clean palette of Dove White, San Antonio Gray and black, mixed with white accesossories, a pop of yellow a little animal print and a lot of SPARKLE...( just like the room above) I found on one of my favorite decorating blogs...www.emilyaclark.blogspot.com....
