Early A.M. Light

The good thing about sleep issues,
cause there must be something...

is the early morning light
in my home.
No retouch here.
Yes, my home always has this yellowish glow...
I think it is the light palette paired with
the heavy cream color on walls

Here is the living room,
haven't shown it in awhile.
Not much has changed.
Compare this to Holiday pics to come!!!
Winter wonderland lol

You walk into the bowling alley style room
via the front door where I stood to shoot this.
There is a soaring 2 1/2 story slanted ceiling.

That doorway in front of the honey colored
 pie safe leads to kitchen and family room.

Cabinet by front door.
Yes Sue, you have dibs on it.
(She already knows where she would put it)

Stair wall below studio

So early a.m. at Z's
Coffee in hand with salted caramel mocha
creamer.. oh my!
Waiting for carpet cleaning estimate appointment,
watching the Sandy reports
and worrying some...

Stay safe my eastern family and friends.
We love you

I swear you use some setting on your camera to get that sepia look so naturally....

I would take 2nd dibs on that cabinet if I lived in Vegas. By the way do you watch that TV show Vegas? I quite like it. Lots of Vegas history (hollywood's made up history no less).

Yes, the light is ethereal, and I love your decorating style, which is very artistic.

This is a beautiful room, Z. I have noticed the lighting in your home before, it makes everything so warm and cozy. I'm wondering where you found that cream, too, it sounds heavenly!


Jill said...

A late good morning to you! Oh Z I love your wall art in the last picture!!

Susy said...

Love those twig hangers. You're a clever gull.

Robin Larkspur said...

Z, your home is very serene, elegant and very homey!

Kathy said...

I like the artwork in the last picture and do tell - what is the mosaic around the mirror made from?

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Gorgeous light! I love the photos on the wall and that cabinet with the bins. Such a welcoming space.

I came across your blog and was captivated because I too have difficulties with sleeping. I just had to share your blog particularly this one because I too have many mornings of greeting the first light of the day and your blog sure made me look at it as a blessing indeed.

The first time I noticed your tile pattern I had a bit of floor envy. Still have it. Looking down at mine this morning makes me think of cross stitch...

What a great room to welcome you in the early, early morning! Love that checked chair, looks so cozy!

Tina @ TinyBear Studio said...

Your home is so beautiful Z.
Hope your daughter and family is safe and that the worst part is over.

I kind of think women should rule the world. I think we would have a different look on things...a smidge of sunlight, the warmth of a candle glow, the hug of a quilt by our feet. I'm sure we could bless the world and call it good.
