real living space

"For too many people, being happy at home is pretty much an abstract idea,
something they can’t know or imagine, until it appears on some taste maker’s must-have list, 
or in a magazine, or reposted on Tumblr. 
A home sweet home is not curated or produced by acquiring 
a perfect arrangement of chairs, lamps and friends. 
A real living space is made from living, not decorating. 
A bored materialist can’t understand that a house has to become a home. 
It happens, not through perfection but by participation."  
(Andy & Elsa Beach Apartamento issue #07) 
As you can see, it's very "real" at our house!  Our living room
is full and doesn't get sorted out nearly enough.
Our hearts are at home here...


  1. Home is where your heart is. Your home looks, comfy, peaceful and full of love.


  2. The last picture shouts "warmth" the wardrobe!

  3. Rebecca,
    This is oh so true!!


  4. I really like this description of a "home". Your place always looks both interesting and comfortable.


  5. Your home is wonderfully warm, inviting and comfortable. Your 'LOVE' pillow is exactly like one I found at our Goodwill years ago. It was in perfect condition and I do not know what became of it. It has disappeared. Oh well, I do have an abundance of pillows.
    Hope you and yours have a lovely weekend.

  6. comfy and cozy keeps it from appearing cluttered. I could be right at home in your house.
