Fellow blogging friend, Lynn Byrne of Decor Arts Now,invited me to share one of the rooms I first remembered, as according to Carlton Varney…this can help us identify our personal style.
I was surprised that my grandfather’s office is what popped into my head. He was known more for giving math quizzes than bear hugs but he exuded a solidness that I look back upon now with great respect. If you wanted to talk with him or “get quizzed”, it was usually in his office. I remember worn leather, a large desk, loads of books and light streaming in through the windows and french doors.
The above snapshot from Lonny circa 2010 captured the essence of that room for me.
So, I found it kind of ironic that the most inviting room in my home exudes that same kind of feel. Loads of coffee table books, espresso colored walls, family photographs in the bookshelves and light streaming in through windows and a set of french doors.
