“…the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.” L.M. Montgomery, Anne Of Avonlea
This winter has been long, and apparently there is more snow in store. While we were all at home, nursing colds and chatting online, we discussed with Lynn Byrne of Décor Arts Now how our colds provided us with the perfect cover to stay home. Because in actuality, we are all of us homebodies.
While we love attending design events, nothing beckons more sweetly than the simple pleasures of a loving home. Home with comfort foods on familiar china, eaten on a well worn sofa, watching an old movie. Later, evening promises soothing music with new books and magazines to read in that perfect chair that molds to our body, snuggled up in a throw, next to the fire. When drowsiness beckons, we can simply close our eyes and nod off, or pad up to a serene bedroom to sink into a sumptuous bed. And although a restful day spent at home surely fortifies us to meet life’s challenges, we never tire of waking up and doing the same, all over again.
