It may sound cliche but it truly is the heart of my home, my blog and my magazine. Even though I have an office in my home, I find myself drawn to this light and airy space with its cool blue walls and cream furniture, these soothing colors are a balm to my busy mind.
Most days I can be found either sitting at the dining room table making lists, working on my laptop or trying to organize items for yet another photo shoot or I'm behind the stove testing a new recipe. And because the space is flooded with beautiful natural light it also serves as my photography studio.
I love decorating and DIYing so I am always "tinkering" with things in my home. I've painted almost every piece of furniture in here which has been a wonderful way to help mismatched pieces of furniture live in harmony in this small space.
I have dreams about adding a new backsplash and a few other updates in my kitchen but until I get around to those I am enjoying simple updates like removing a couple of cabinet doors to reveal space to showcase some of my favorite props and treasures. It does a great job of breaking up the "wall of white" and didn't cost a penny!! And if I get tired of it, I can simply screw the doors back on!
I love having fresh flowers in my home and am so grateful that my parents allow me to regularly clip blooms from their garden. For me, there is nothing like fresh blooms to instantly make a room look (and smell) "prettier".
I have lots and lots (and lots) of accessories for photo shoots and not a lot of storage space so practically every available surface is filled with items waiting to be grabbed at a moment's notice and used to embellish a
There is also a small TV in this room which sits on a chest in front of my all-time-most-favorite mirror project ever! This mirror was such an easy project and I'm still so proud of how it turned out.
The "Keeping room" part of my kitchen/dining room is the fireplace area. I sit here every morning enjoying a cup of hot tea, reading my bible and mentally preparing myself for the busy day ahead. While I hardly ever light a fire, I still find it to be a cozy corner that is perfect for catching a few quiet moments before my day takes off. And there you have it, a tour of "my favorite room!" Thank you so much Kim for inviting me to share it, I am truly honored!!
