IWe really have the impression of being in the spring in our house, but even more, we feel at home! We’ve been living in this house for * almost * six years now, can you believe it? I’ve never lived more than six years, so it’s a really good feeling to be so well settled and to have had so many seasons in this place. He continues to feed us, surprise us and delight us in unexpected ways. We also settle into our rhythms here. All is not perfect, of course, life never is – but this space feels more and more familiar with each season. It feels like home.
We are surrounded by so much natural beauty this time of year! On a sunny weekend there are often dozens of boats cruising the water and the scent of lilacs and salty air circulate in the breeze from our open windows. There are so many things we love to experience here that I might have overlooked in the real estate listing photos, or just didn’t know, would have impacted us so much the first time we saw this house. I believe that every house has its own special elements and a more beautiful life can be lived anywhere when you get to know and take care of your house and its surroundings.
The longer we live here, the more it starts to feel like ‘us’. Each new season brings more clarity to the vision I have for her and the type of home she is and wants to be. Right now I’m bringing more ‘summer cottage by the sea’ than ever before. It just seems fair.
Can’t wait to show you more, but I mentioned in my Life Lately article that we have a new rug in our living room! I wanted to share more details about this today.
The carpet we have chosen is HERE.
We love it because it’s indoor / outdoor for durability and easy cleaning. It’s like the perfect jeans. It acts as a neutral that will go with everything, but the blue also adds a cheerful, grounded feel to the space!
We also have this plush pillow to use underneath, which makes it super comfortable and won’t slip off.
Hope you all have a great week!
