As I slowly make my way back into blogging I thought I would start a series on spaces and home decor ideas that I love.

If I love them I have a sneaking suspicion that some of you might just love them too.

Nesting With Grace has added this hanging chair to create a cozy corner in her family room. It might just get the kids to slow down and curl up with a good book too.

Jenny Rose Innes describes her style as traditional but not structured. I would describe it as absolutely perfect.

Kim, at Junk Chic Cottage has the most amazing knack for finding salvage pieces and transforming them into the perfect pieces for her home.

This mirror is spectacular.

I keep waiting for My English Country Cottage to invite me to tea in her amazing 400 year old cottage in England, but each day when I check my mail I find nothing but an empty mailbox. 

I guess I will have to drool from afar as I sip me earl gray tea.

My small apartment seems to be overflowing with old books, and I have been racking my brain to come up with places to put them (besides under the bed).

Robyn's French Nest has given me some great ideas for how to incorporate them into my decor. 

Those hearts are really precious too.

So happy that I have found a way to justify all of the hours I spend in a hamster trance looking at everyone else's fabulous homes. 

Have a great day and I would love if you would check out my Etsy shop where I sell vintage and antique finds along with digital downloads of beautiful antique artwork.


  1. Thank you for the mention of my mirror Laura. All these spaces are so pretty. Happy to see you post again. Big hugs. Kris

  2. Oh that English Country Cottage table is outstanding. I'd like to eat there, too...and Kris' home is one of my absolute favorites. She has such a knack creating light and bright spaces! SO charming.

  3. So glad to see your post. I love what you have showcased. I could get list for hours on Pinterest if I let myself!! Xoxo Marilyn

  4. You've featured some lovely spaces, Laura! Looking forward to this series!
