Where to begin? It is sometimes, no always, difficult for me to know where to begin with words. Being a ‘visual’ person, I tend to know almost instantly what I like when I see it but if I have to describe in words why I like it my brain immediately freezes. The beautiful flowing descriptive words that seem to come so easily to others struggle to come to the surface as they are faced with a major road block in my brain.
Here is a perfect example of a home that I immediately liked when I saw it but to say why exactly is difficult. Possibly it is the calm and soothing pallet of white and grey. The white floors and bed are a perfect backdrop to the beautiful grey door, basket and wool throw.
Maybe it is the simple furnishings, sparse yet appropriately scaled for the rooms. The white painted armoire and slip-covered sofa and chairs create a comfortable space for relaxing, reading and quite possibly watching a T.V. hidden behind the armoire doors. I can almost smell the pretty lilacs on the table.
The charm continues out to the little balcony with an antique folding chair and luscious green herbs for the kitchen.
So, as I hang my head in discouragement because of my inability to articulate with greater detail, beauty and eloquence, I can tell you that the sum of my feelings about this space can be described in one amazing word: pulchritudinous. (I couldn't help myself :-) )
