ON crazy days like today, all I want is to come home to a clean, uncluttered and calming environment. Of course I have no excuses for clean & uncluttered [blame it on Ruby]! But living in an apartment the ‘calm’ does escape me!
I may not be able to control the noisy neighbours [my headphones are permanently glued to my head!], but I can dream of my ‘one day home’ & creating my own calming haven. Somewhere my mind, body and weary soul can rest.
So today, I am dreaming of the calming presence and soothing grey hues of this Manhattan Beach Home.
[tomorrow of course I will wonder how I will incorporate some colour]
Welcome to today’s lazy daydream. Somewhere to stop, rest and clear the mind.
Well here is the Dreaming Nook. Good for reading, dreaming or just plain gazing out the window. In my ‘daydream’ the ocean is just beyond my front yard. I wouldn’t even mind some rain drizzling down the window pane
Winter Lulling Room
This is where I lull in winter by the crackling fire. Sometimes when feeling a tad energetic, I may even have someone play the piano for me. [if they ask me nicely]
Summer Lulling Room
Ahhh. The Summer Lulling Room for the warmer months. From here I can gaze out the French Doors into the yard and watch the butterflies flit along the hedges. Sometimes I even wander out back to the Pool House. Just for a change of scenery.
[in my dreams it is a Pool House, adjacent to a flagstone bordered pool]
Sorry this room came with the house. I think it needs a makeover. Perhaps some plush sofas with white slip-covers for lounging and lulling, and definitely new curtains and area rug.
Do you think so too?
Food Sampling Room
Well all that lulling can work up an appetite. When that happens, I move to the Dining room and have someone whip me up a feast. While I wait, I do some more gazing out the window. Maybe someone will make me a cappuccino.
Eventually one has to rest their weary head and where better than this softly hued room , simply adorned with beautiful linens. There’s also plenty of spots to ‘Stop , Revive & Survive’ as I make my way to the bed to slumber.
Well I think that is enough for today. Thanks visiting my lazy daydream, but right now it’s time for my nap!
