This photo, which was on the cover of Veranda in September 2007, has been in my inspiration folder for a long time and I don't know how often I have kept it open on my desktop to enjoy the design. That room speaks to me, it looks both grand and serene, and I love the white chaise lounge. The interior designer is Renea Abbott and the artwork above the fireplace is by Cy Twombly.
Starting tomorrow, it was my plan to blog on Saturdays again. There is something delightful about creating a blog post with a cup of coffee on a leisurely Saturday morning, not to mention when the weather is nothing special and you just want to stay cosy at home. Then I checked the weather report and there is nothing autumnal about it, only warm days ahead to prolong the summer. Tomorrow we are also having guests over so I have a good excuse to postpone my Saturday blogging for at least one week.
• HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND DEAR READERS AND BLOG FRIENDS •
