I'm not quite ready to decorate for Christmas, but with the cooler, darker days, it's nice to make spaces cozier.
Books warm up spaces
along with candles...
Sitting by the fire is cozy, so I moved this bench in here.
We also moved the six foot sofas so that they face each other. That's the beauty of two smaller sofas…versatility.
In fact yesterday, my client bought this Hickory Chair by Alexa Hampton ottoman to place in between two matching Lee Industries settees on order…for a cozy sitting room where she can "put her feet up."
I asked if we could buy the floor model and got a deal. It's a good time of year to ask.
These are the neutral Lee fabrics that we are using. The linen is on the lower end of the fabric price scale for the settees. The Fortuny type fabric is Lee's really high end but for their custom throw pillows (not upholstery) the fabric is priced all the same.
Pretty flowers even though they aren't exactly autumnal colors. My mom taught me to never complain about gifts from your husband though (or you might not get any). Thanks, Howard, so glad I married you.
This is Chief's "please take me on a walk" look. The rug by Restoration Hardware feels warm but lightens the foyer.Fortunately, we have great places to walk together. (Coming back up this hill is rougher than it looks though).
We are headed to Southern California to be with family for Thanksgiving. Tommy is coming home from school and we are going to celebrate his birthday, too.
No one's life is perfect. But we can be grateful for the almost perfect parts. Wishing you and your family a beautiful, warm and cozy Thanksgiving!
