Living Room at My Cottage


I did some Tabitha-approved rearranging last week. She's having a hard time deciding which sofa cushion is her favorite. I got rid of my large coffee table full of books (and junk) and put some low tables in front of "my" sofa. I'm liking this mix a lot even though the low tables are mid-century modern. I put a high tea table between the sofas and I love the way the lamp light shines on my antiquarian books in the glass front case in the corner. The mid-century tables used to be there and the lamp was much lower. I can easily move the low tables out of the way now when I need more room. I really need to get back on a new routine with my hula hoop for the winter. 

This cushion seems to be winning.

What a lovely, restful, peaceful room. No wonder Tabitha loves it so and can't decide which spot she likes best. They're all good!

Oh, what a cozy room! I especially love the tiger maple end table and the wonderful still life paintings. And is that a map print over the sofa?

Isn't it amazing how we let our four-legged children make so many decisions? The room looks lovely -- can I stop by for tea on my next trip to Cape Cod? (you know that is a joke...!)

Lovely room! I've been wanting to make some changes in my living area but haven't had a chance to work on it yet. Maybe you'll inspire me!

Love the whole room, especially the decorative cat on sofa. I'm amazed that she allows you to have so many pretty breakables around. My cat would have clear off those spaces for his own convenience. Particular love the window treatment.

Love a good cat photo. For all cat lovers, would recommend "Morris'Rescue Watch" which ties watching cute cat videos with a donation to animal shelters (if you do the security thing at the end of the video). win win.
