I think the main reason why I fell flat for this space is the spring feel to it, at least in this particular photo. Well, that and the furniture, floorboards, fireplace and bookshelves (I wish I could zoom in and read the titles of all those books). And yes, let's not forget the flowers on the table. It's amazing how fresh flowers can make all the difference. I like the vintage vibe because the space is light and bright; not heavy, which is often the result with vintage styled rooms. You can see the rest of the house and read an interview with the owners on the website of Vogue US.
I find myself longing for spring, for sunny days and cherry blossoms, so that's probably why this space appeals so much to me. Is it too early to dream of spring?
Well, before spring arrives there is the fashion week season and the Oscars. Did you see the nominations? I'm always excited about the Oscars, whether I have seen the films or not. Even though I haven't seen Ben Affleck's Argo (2012) yet, I'm hoping the film does well at the Oscars. Maybe I just want to see him make another fun acceptance speech. (Do you remember his and Matt Damon's when they won for the screenplay of Good Will Hunting (1997)? Look it up on YouTube, it's priceless.) About fashion week season. A few weeks ago I wasn't excited about the upcoming shows at all but now I feel ready. Maybe it's all the fashion related books I have been reading lately.
