a happy spot in my home


you all know i love sharing happy spots.  so today, i thought i’d share a favorite happy (and updated) spot in my home.  i love cozying up with a book and a cup of tea or taking a few minutes to write here.


i’ve added this gorgeous area rug from medallion rugs.  which really sets the space.  to say i love this area rug is a bit of an understatement.  it is beyond gorgeous, isn’t it?  the pattern, the color and the texture is textile heaven.  yeah, i pretty much like to sit and stare at it.


besides the area rug,  one of my other favorite pieces in this little spot is the floor lamp from land of nod.  the tree stumps were made by a local artist, the bench is thrifted, the chairs i found in someone’s trash (yes, really) and the map is an old map of the london train stations, which is special to me.


sometimes you just have to make your own little happy spot in your home.
