In celebration of the launch of Melissa of The Inspired Room’s latest book entitled “The Inspired Room: Simple Ideas to Love the Home,” I thought I would share a few pictures of the room in my home that has my heart.
Of all the rooms in my home, I would have to say it is my living area that I love the most. Moving from Ohio to Texas 18 years ago, I remember falling in love with the room the minute I walked through the entry door on our hunt for the perfect place we would call home. It was the windows….I immediately fell in love with them and the open, airy feel of the room. It has continued to be the place where I love to land. Whether it is in the morning as I catch a few quiet moments before my day begins or with my husband in the evening after the work day is over, the room comforts my soul and makes me smile.
Fall is the time I especially love this room because for me the touches of autumn warm up the space even more.
My first attempt at painting the pumpkin canvas that hangs above the mantle and and a gold tissue paper wreath that permanently graces the large chalkboard in the room each remind me that it’s the personal touches to a space that truly make it a home. (Thanks to blogger Emily Lex of Jones Design Company for sharing her inspiration for these projects.
I have learned to love and be grateful for the home I live in and am looking forward to even more ways to do this from Melissa of The Inspired Room’s latest book entitled “The Inspired Room: Simple Ideas to Love the Home You Have.” It is available on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble.
The book looks beautiful and is especially inviting to me because Melissa encourages us to love the home we are in for the joy it brings us and those we share it with.
So that’s my favorite room….My favorite chair is calling me to come sit awhile and soak up the quiet of this autumn afternoon with a cup of hot tea.
