Inspiration for when we’re old

August 19, 2011

This is the sort of room I plan to grow old in; comfortable and not too proper; full of books and the spoils of a life well lived.  I love the WASPY touches; the dogs, the bar, the eagle mirror.

Oh yes … I love how lived in and easy this looks! Give me another 20 years, and I’ll be ready.

You really cannot go wrong with books, a comfy place to sit, and a cocktail.

Oh I just LOVE this! Yes, yes — I want to live in this room too. And I love your blog, which I recently discovered. (I’ve been under a rock.) I’m really enchanted by your images that you post (Perseid meteors) 🙂 — I don’t know how old your kiddo is but if you have the time, I’d like to invite you to come visit my daughter and I over at where I write about Children’s Books and fun things for kids. Have a great weekend! Aloha, Melissa
