Master Bedroom

Like the other rooms in our rental house, our bedroom has been pulled together with love and desire for comfort and happiness. But also, with the need to use things we already had on hand. The only new items are the curtains (IKEA) and their hardware (from our local curtain shop). I also picked up the wicker basket for holding firewood on the hearth. 

With many of our belongings still in boxes (beloved picture frames, dish ware, artwork, etc.), we are living very comfortably but sparsely. I have always gravitated toward minimalist design so it doesn't bother me. But there's always that vase you need, or picture frame you miss seeing... 

I took these images in the early morning so the room is quite dark. 

The wrinkled duvet cover and bed linens are fresh from the wash but not from the ironing board - no time for that I'm afraid. If I waited to take pictures until I pressed the bed linens, I would never post on it! 

Here are a few more photos just before bedtime. I decided to use the IKEA bed from our old guest house because it's so comfortable. I love the padded headboard and the ease with which you can nestle in with a good book.

A Quiet Living Room

For the most part, we've kept the living room the same since we first moved in, minus the addition of the chair that was relocated from the office. It is a room that we seldom find ourselves in unfortunately, due to its location at the far side of the house from the playroom. 

It is a room that lends itself to a quiet moment now and then - a moment to just be still and listen to rush of the river, the creaks of the house, the chatter of voices coming from elsewhere in the home. 

It is one of my favorite rooms in the house.

Strawberry Picking

Picking organic strawberries one summer morning last week. 
Oh summer, you are sweet.
