What My Guests See First

When Entering My Home
I was told recently that my home had "A Sense of Tranquility".
I like that a lot, I feel that is what I am striving for in my life.
At least my home has gotten there, me I'm still a work in progress.












What mood are you striving for in your home?

  1. what/how are you growing in those jars? looks cool. i don't think i have ever walked in your house thru the front door but i sure love your entry. your home is definitely a "tranquil" vacation place for us. i agree with you, i want my house to be a place where people just want to breathe it in like fresh air.

  4. I love your hardwood floors! How big is your house? I love the long hallway. You don't have to tell me :) Where did you get your antique pitchers. I love them. I'm striving for a peaceful house...it's not always the case with 2 small children.

    1. The hardwood floors are wide plank hand scraped oak. Notice the way they they are stopped and change directions at doorways. It adds great interest. My house is about 4800 sg ft. The layout is great http://www.linenandthread.com/2012/02/february-giveaway.html. The antique pitchers were collected over time from flea markets and such.

  5. Gorgeous home! I love the color and all that light! I think your sea colors do a lot to offer tranquility to your guests. And I love all of your large paintings with the gold frames. Art is a hard one for me - I can tell what looks good in other peoples', but I have no idea how to pick anything for OUR house.

    1. Art is a very personal thing. Remember true art is not purchased to go with your sofa. Pick what speaks to you. Use personal items, photos. My blog has a number of posts that might help. Check out some past posts.
