My Favorite Room....All Things Heart and Home

autumn
Hello Kim's sweet friends!!! I'm Robin and my blog is All Things Heart and Home.
I'm so happy to be hanging out with you today! Like you, I love Kim's eye for design, her beautiful home never ceases to inspire me, so when she asked me share my favorite room I was thrilled!
Come on in and check it out!
All Things Heart and Home
The den is what sold me on this house 2 years ago...ya see, we were looking for a space that would give us enough room for our family get togethers. This den, which is really open to the rest of the living area - has high ceilings and lots of room for our peeps!
All Things Heart and Home
But even with the high ceilings, I feel cozy here in the winter months all snuggled on the couch by the fire...

And during the day, light pours into this room, making it near impossible to be glum when you're in here!
All Things Heart and Home
I'm in here an awful lot...I could work in several rooms in the house but I find myself drawn to this space. Maybe it's because from my chair, I can see the bird feeder just outside one of the windows ...it's always full of birdseed and there are always little birds flitting and perching and singing for their supper!
All Things Heart and Home
We've done lots of renovations in this old house in the past 2 years, in the den we've simply added some of our DIY projects like
the rustic tables on each side of the fireplace made from 250 year old beams...I so love the color and the texture of old beams and they work well in the den because I think the tall stone fireplace begs for a few other rustic elements.

We also added this Ellen-Knock-Off Tree Stump Table... made from a Birch Tree that we were forced to cut down ...I was so sad about that tree but it makes me smile every time I look at this little eclectic table... All Things Heart and Home
And since the den & the eat-in kitchen are pretty much one room...

All Things Heart and Home...with those doors open, I can hear the backyard waterfall from my comfy chair right here in the den~
All Things Heart and Home
The space for family, the light, the birdsong, the sound of the waterfall...maybe that's why I love this room the best!
I'd love for you to visit me at All Things Heart and Home-come over and introduce yourself!

Thank you, Robin for opening up your home and sharing your favorite room with us.

If Robin's blog, All Things Heart and Home, is new to you I hope you will pop over and say hi. I have been following Robin since before I started blogging and met her in person a couple months ago.
I always love meeting bloggers in person. Makes them real. :)

  11. I love that fireplace framed by those gorgeous windows. I'm so glad Robin chose not to clutter the windows with drapes. Those "open" windows along with the high ceilings really give the room an spacious, airy look. Beautiful space!

    1. Oh Mimi thank you for saying that about the curtains! I love the openness but soooo often I second guess my choice to forgo curtains! I really appreciate you weighing in on that :) Have a wonderful weekend xo

  12. Robin your Den is so warm and inviting. I love the little shutters on the mantle, those beam tables, the stump table and is that a farm table with benches I see peeking through in the kitchen? Thanks so much Kim for sharing Robin and All Things Heart and Home with us today!

  13. It can be hard to make such a large room with soaring ceilings warm and inviting, but Robin has done that. Love how light-filled and open everything is. Those benches/tables that they made to go beside the fireplace are a great addition. And the stump table is so unique! Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your Friday Features.
