A Home With Books
This is an old favourite in my files that I am revisiting for kitchen inspiration for a client.
I love the use of cabinetry, here in the kitchen, that gives the impression of a free standing armoire.
I love the low open shelves and the bank of windows letting all the beautiful light in.
And I LOVE the lights. Just perfect over the sink… with the glass catching the light.
I love the rest of the home too. They love their books.
This quote comes to mind when I see the books in this home. They’ve gotten it right.
Yep, they sure love their books! ….
… and their nooks! What a great use of ‘under the stairs’ space.
Love the little laundry, drying/washing nook too.
This beautiful home was renovated by Smith and Vansart Architects. You can see the full brief HERE.
I’m lolling in bed today. All day. Such a foreign concept, a day in bed. Hubby and the boys got out the door after much noise and chaos. I have a monster post anaesthetic headache so my blog post is later than anticipated.
Big son is off on camp at the Uni, to do some team building with his new school classmates of next year. Hope he has fun and makes some nice new friends. He reeked of aftershave as he walked out the door. His new school is co-ed … and not just girls, but smart girls! Warms a mother’s heart.
Little one got his report card from his new school yesterday. His report was outstanding, he got A for effort in every subject, with words like ‘happy’ and ‘sociable’, ‘polite’, ‘encouraging’, ‘friendly’ and ‘integrated seamlessly into our school’ giving me permission to acknowledge that I did make the right decision moving him. We’ve got our boy back. He is positively joyous at school now. We are looking forward to his little school concert tonight.
Happy Thursday! Have a great day.
