Hello friends and welcome to a brand new week.
I know you join me in feeling so grateful for the homes we live in – be it an apartment, condo, cottage, house or estate – but sometimes when you love DIY and home design it’s really easy to only see what needs to be done and not actually enjoy your little corner of the world enough.
My genuine, talented and Red Sox-loving friend Brenna is kicking off my little dream series and sharing one of her favorite spots of her home. Every week from here on out I am thrilled to bring you a different home, it’s going to be so fun.
It’s a quick glimpse into someone’s home and style
and I hope you’ll enjoy this series as much as I enjoy sharing these homes.
Hi, I’m Brenna from Domestic Charm. The lovely Lisa has invited me to share my favorite spot in her “Shine Home Love” series. (Don’t you just adore Lisa?!) And I am more than happy to share it with you. I love this spot in my home. It has a lot of meaning to it, but you’d never know unless I told you. So here it goes.
My favorite corner of home is in my keeping room. It is a little living room right off the kitchen and it is where my family spends most of their time. From my little perch, I can see pretty much everything that’s going on.
But that’s not the only reason why it is special to me.
It is special to me because each piece holds some meaning. For example, the chairs (there’s a match on the other side of the room) were hand me downs from my parents. They were the chairs that you were not allowed to sit in as a kid because they were in the formal living room. And only adults were allowed to sit in the formal living room. But once they got to me I had them reupholstered and now everyone can sit in them.
The lamp is the first lamp that I bought for my home when my husband and I got married. It has seen better days at this point, but I can’t part with it.
And I thought I was so clever when I came up with the idea to use an old ladder as a magazine rack. Little did I know that everyone did that. But I still love the idea!
I like to sit here and read my favorite magazines, snuggle under a blanket and drink a cup of coffee. It truly is my favorite corner of home.
How pretty and cozy is Brenna’s favorite spot?
THANK YOU for kicking off Shine Home Love and sharing your home with us, Brenna!
