cozy lakehouseDecember 09, 2014
It's a quiet peaceful morning here in hellolovelyland,
in spite of the holiday to-do list which seems to swell.
If you have a moment to breathe in this peaceful,
inspiring, architectural wonder on a lake
in the Adirondacks,
I invite you to slow down with me.
It's not everyday I have to look twice to determine
whether a space is a bedroom or a dining room, but the
room above is so cocoon-centric, it gave me pause.
The porch is a beckoning peacemaker of a space.
The gentle rhythm of swinging while breathing in the beauty
of nature all around is a heavenly prescription.
Wallpaper panels with an evergreen motif?
A brilliantly beautiful idea.
But pure in the flesh evergreen trumps it every time.
Understated, bland, low-key bedrooms may have been an option.
But look what happens when we choose an explosion of
artful life and personality
(hint: we don't have to lose sophistication).
I just know I could write a bestseller in here.
Wondering about the exterior of this lakehouse?
“All of us have a path to follow and the path begins on earth.”
― Richard Matheson
This location for me suggests one of those
"thin places" where the boundaries between
earth and heaven are wispy as gossamer.
Ahhhhh. I do love the interplay of tranquility,
inspiration, magic, beauty, and art.

I wish you pockets of peace during these
busy December days, and I hope you will
be gentle with yourselves, remembering
that you are indeed enough whether
you are running behind,
facing fear and rejection,
or all of the above.
Let love enter the equation and miraculously make it all okay.
Peace to you right where you are.
