Monday Nook


Tara, from over at Landscape Design, says, "on axis with your favorite view, from inside your home, plant a fabulous tree". Well, I didn't plant the tree outside my Great Room window but the one conveniently growing there (hence the existence of the window) gives me such pleasure from where I sit blogging early in the mornings.


.....look that's where I sit, right in the middle, feet up.....you can still see the depression in the sofa, even when I'm not plonked there. That is sooo my spot. Comfort, peace and quiet and a 'green view'...pure bliss. Stay asleep children, stay asleep.... just for a little bit longer.
And that's the best I could do this morning for a 'Monday Nook'... oh dear!
Happy Monday!

  4. I love the birds-eye-view from your serene window seat. You put so much thought into the building of this home. The quiet hours in the morning, when you have the house all to yourself- it's the best, isn't it? It's my favorite time of day- just before my DH gets up and all is still. Love your comfortable nook.

  8. Your "great room" is well named! I'm in love with your divine sofa and the gorgeous cushions - I can see why it gets a lot of use. How very clever of you to have designed the room around this wonderful old tree. Leigh
