Finally a little sunshine streaming through the windows! This is one of my favorite places in the farmhouse to sit and drink my morning coffee because I can see the sun when it first comes up over the horizon. I am sure I have probably mentioned to you in the past that one of the main attractions when we found the farmhouse was how bright the interior was from the many tall windows. Finding just the right chair to place by the window so I could take advantage of the sunshine and start my day proved to be quite the challenge. I wanted a chair that had a modern edge but timeless feel. Nothing that I looked at ever seemed right until I found a slipper styled version with beautiful tapestry upholstery at Pier 1. It was one of those, “right place at the right time” as the store had just put it out on the floor. Bingo, it came home with me!
In decorating the mantel for Spring, I used a combination of glass and a large mirror to take advantage of the reflection from the sunshine. Deb gifted me with a lovely vintage frame that I used to layer over the old mirror for the center of the mantel. I kept the mantel fresh and light with the addition of glass cylinders filled with cherry blossom branches and mercury glass candlesticks.
My special place to start the day!
Tell me about the special place in your home where you start the day. I would love to know!
