Nesting Urges

Personal

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately but I have this inexplicable lust for more space, a new bed, big windows, fresh flowers in every room, white washed kitchens, wood furniture with chipped paint, gauzy curtains, and lots of sunshine. My trip to Ikea yesterday probably didn’t help matters. And I love Pottery Barn but I really wish they wouldn’t cram so much stuff into their pictures.

I’ll order all of the following, please:

My kitchens (that’s right, I’ll have several)

Bedrooms
(Note the canopy bed. I saw this pic in the book The Comforts of Home by Atlanta Bartlett and I’ve been obsessed with this bedroom ever since! The bed, white washed floors, big mirror casually resting on the floor, old lockers, bench, sunlight… drool. )

There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.
