This looks like a view of heaven.
I would love to see more of this beautiful home! Please!
Who needs a jug of wine and a loaf of bread? A roaring fire and a cup of tea make me happy!
Oh my. I want to come over! (Not stalking you, just admiring)
A reflection of your soul...what a home should be.
As Sunday afternoon should be
So warm and inviting.
I would love to have fire in the fireplace.....but we had 86F this Sunday afternoon, so we had a barbecue with the family.
I want this home. I want the dog on the pillow. I want to be by this fire. Right now I am on the road for business in the usual awful hotel room with loved ones and dogs far away. Keeping your picture up on the computer while I click through 100 channels of terrible TV.
I too have often read your SWNE posts from a hotel room somewhere. They're always a nice dose of sanity.
This does look inviting, but I must admit it is similar to my own home, except we have a gas fireplace. My husband was adamant on that (I lost that battle!). But otherwise, it looks very similar to how we spend most of our Sunday afternoons as well, usually with a good book or movie.
Wonderful paintings, prints, and horse brasses. I'm reminded of a quote by the 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy; "The horse is one of only three appropriate subjects for a painting, along with ships with sails and men holding up swords while staring off into the distance.”
Lusting after that carpet
Beautiful interior design Muffy. My sincerest compliments! Very comforting.Is that a leather rhino footstool I see under the white coffee table? Believe it or not, leather animal footstools like that could once be bought at Abercrombie & Fitch (I last saw them in the early 80's). Of course, that was back when they had transitioned from safari outfitter to something similar to Orvis. Luckily, a wide variety of leather animal footstools--still made in England--can be purchased from Scully & Scully in New York.
This photo could well serve as the definition for “civilization.” The objects nicely express the selective taste of the owner, and their harmonious geometric placement reflects both intelligence and thoughtfulness. Of course, what is NOT present here is just as important as what is.
