Brown on white



Some midweek visual pleasures here from a light-filled home captured by Anna Kern

{Looking at that fireplace especially at this time of year is suddenly creating a bout of 
"I want, I need, I want" 
ringing inside my head, hmm... 
Thankfully there are other ways to keep warm,
like a long soak in the bath, grey woolly socks, church candles, 
and fennel&marshmallow root tea
- a recipe that worked a treat tonight.}

  1. I just love the look of dark wood against a white backdrop! This is beautiful especially because of the not-too-precious look. Have a lovely evening xo

    1. I so agree,
      an all-white background has the danger of looking,
      well, too white,
      but with these worn browns and fireplace that's so invitingly a little crooked around the edges,
      it all looks just right!

    1. No soak tonight,
      but the church candles are still doing their trick
      (oh and a glass of red wine :) )

    1. Anna Kern is a name that's stuck with me,
      I'm sure she's never photographed a boring and sterile looking house :)

    1. I wish I knew a little more about the place,
      definitely has a Swedish-Danishy feel.

  8. I was longing for some just plain wood furniture, and Voilà! The fireplace is, indeed, a focus point of my vision and dreams for the time being. I was wondering about that large crucifix hanging from a coat-hanger. Quite an unusual place, there may have a significance, or just an aesthetic one. Charming house.

    After a couple of soggy days, this Thursday the weather is sunny but crisp-crisp.
    Love,
    Doina

    1. Yes, not sure how much here is a product of styling versus the real thing
      (as regards the crucifix).
      Crisp-crisp here, too, with a nice bit of sunshine today!
      A fireplace like that, one day!

  10. P.S. I was a little shocked as I noticed that the word 'Love' at the end of this post looked rather lovely& curly on my mac,
    but was screaming in big ugly letters when I looked at this post on a PC earlier on today, sorry, no harm intended :)

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
