This is the first in a new series of posts I’m going to try out for a while.
I’m a big believer in the idea that it’s the details that really make a huge difference when it comes to loving your home. I won’t deny that taking care of the big picture is important and that’s usually how a room design begins, but if you’re lucky enough to get to that point where you pay attention to those little details – to create those special little moments – that’s the sweet spot.
It’s those little moments that really make you smile as you sink into your comfiest chair or that extra special view when you look through your window into the garden. So often when I sit quietly in our house I smile from ear to ear when I notice the details.
Here’s the first picture that inspired this blog series. A beautiful tableaux with inexpensive blue and white vases just the right size for holding single garden roses. The antique wooden box was a keepsake from Maine this past summer and the gilt mirror is from Maine the summer before. I love how the mirror reflects the room beyond, like an Old Master painting and the watery, soothing wall colour in the background is still my favourite.
Here’s hoping you enjoy the details in your home.
