welcoming rooms

I was sitting here on my chaise lounge with a blanket, enjoying Irish coffee with hubby and reading (I just started One Day by David Nicholls – very gripping). I was also contemplating what to post. On my mind were cosy and welcoming rooms, rooms that let in light and this is what I found in my inspiration folder.

Now I'm off to check out your blogs. Enjoy the rest of the day!

  1. Very nice.. Wonderful pictures..
    have a nice week Lisa..
    Many hugs. susi

  2. Cosy, cosy pics - and hey; I´d love an Irish coffee! :-)

  3. Boy do I wish we had a home big enough for a 'welcoming room'. Unfortunately here it is just simply the hallway and that keeps all our shoes and coats. Not nearly as neat and welcoming as this :)

    And the cabin was great, we got the painting done and had a lot of great food as always ;)

    Hugs and a happy new week to you!

  4. Very beautiful decorated!
    Wish you a wonderful evening too!
    Big Hugs,

  5. Well the way you describe it, your home sounds lovely and welcoming. I read One Day and it mirrored my own timeline within a year or so and brought back a lot of memories!

  6. Love the photo taken through the door ;o)
    Also a really nice day to you - hugs Tina

  7. Oh I could pass many an hour curled up on any one of these with a good book :)

    Hope your week is off to a great start! xoxo

  8. I love that little reading nook in front of the window in the third photo...just perfect!

  9. Its SUPER important to have light! Especially this time of year. I don't know what its like in Antwerp but in Va its been SO GLOOMY! But the leaves are starting to turn.

  10. First picture reminded me of a hotel in Bruges where we stay every time we visit. So cosy and beautiful. x

  11. That third image, I could spend endless hours in there with my books and magazines and a cup of coffee. Have a beautiful day, Lisa! xoxo

  12. Ooooh, lovely, lovely, lovely. i adore your inspiration folder... have a nice day, Lisa!

  13. a window seat would always be welcoming to me.

  14. So, so welcoming. I want our new home to get the vibes from these rooms!
