Tulips in the late afternoon light...
This lamp, which you see pop up again and again in my photos, sits on a little table in the front room of my house and often finds itself in the company of whatever flowers are in season ~ tulips here of late. The way the light comes in through the blinds in the afternoon is almost ethereal some days. I snapped this photo earlier in the week, as the afternoon light was nearing its end for the day. The little room, which used to be a porch but was enclosed years ago, is all windows above the chair rail, with the exception of the front door. It's a great place to watch the world go by or sit in the papasan chair and read the afternoon away while the sun keeps you nice and toasty. In the summer, there is usually a nice breeze blowing in off the ocean. I always call it the front room to others, but in my mind it's the reading porch.
If you'd like to see photos of the reading porch, and some of the other rooms in my home, you can visit my other blog, The Art of Living Beautifully, for a special tour. I took some photos this past weekend as I was finishing the seasonal updates ~ slipcovers, softer colors, moving some rugs around, etc. You know, just a general lightening and brightening that brings the outside in. Click here to see the tour.
As a side note, I had said earlier that I was going to take down my The Art of Living Beautifully blog and just reside here at The Pink Home. Silly me ~ that isn't going to happen. Instead I've spruced up the place and will be keeping both blogs. I hope you'll hop over for a visit.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend full of sweet pinks and romance, in honor of the Royal Wedding.
