Random Happy Home


Pin It

Many times, this post title gives me the shivers. Is it really a happy home? Am I just one of this authors who make pretend, when their life is not what they pictured it would be? Well, it's not an unhappy home (praise the Lord!) and beautiful surroundings DO make me happy - especially with the gloomy weather and all. But these days the house is really happy, because there were a lot of changes in the study. Out with the couch, in with the day bed. Move the desk around, move the bookcase. Hence the bare corner, with nothing but the bare herringbone floors and the DIY faux wallpaper, during the process of redecorating...





I may have forgotten to plant the tulip and the hyacinth bulbs at the right moment, but nature keeps moving on. The potted narcissus bulbs that I've already had for some years keep making new green leaves, year after year. Of course, this is not a sure guarantee that we'll have yellow flowers, but we'll surely have the long green leaves :))) On the right, just a sneak peek into my next photo shooting, so please be patient...




Touches of turquoise are all over my kitchen counter. On the left, you can spot one of my most recent thrift finds, a tall turquoise glass with an intriguing amphora shape. It matches the backdrop of the Ikea melamine tray, don't you think? On the right, some very last chrysanthemums from my little balcony make a contrasting bouquet for the blue pitcher than you can also find here.




Also, the handsome potted coconut deserves a closer look. It may not be the star of my Valentine bedroom, but its arched silhouette completes the look of the room and adds a touch of life for these dark sky days of late January. Speaking of which, let me remind you that tomorrow is the beginning of a new month. So don't forget to come back tomorrow if you need a free printable February calendar!
