Nordic Country White Sleigh Decor


How about an antique sleigh in your living room?  Any child would love it.  All the shades of white make this room airy and bright.  I especially like the loveseat and chair with gold trim.  The hemp rug adds an earthy touch.  Judging by the railing outside the window this may be an apartment, but it could also be anywhere in the countryside.

Dutch bed nook - Carl Larrson style


Bliss is sitting in a rocking chair while warming your toes by an old wood stove...right next to your bed nook.

Beautiful european style hedge

A combination of cypress trees and purple verbena make for a stunning view along this driveway to Peter Janke's garden.  I found this on pinterest and clicked over to The Garden Wanderer's blog.  They have lots of wonderful garden photos.

Colonial Vegetable Garden

A year or so ago we visited a public flower garden that included a few old farmhouses and this charming colonial garden.  I took lots of pictures to add to my dream garden inspiration files.  When you get tired from gardening there is place to sit and drink some sweet tea.  Or a tall glass of lemonade (see the citrus trees around the fence line).

I snapped this picture of Positano last Fall as we were waiting for our bus back to Sorrento.  The bus ride to and from Positano reminded me of The road to Hana.  But it was definitely worth it :)

Pretty Tiffany Blue Pantry

The aqua blue turns this pantry from ordinary to extraordinary!  And the FLOR rug is a great idea.  I found this at Dina's blog called "Honey & Fitz".  Check out her "Before and After" gallery for more great inspiration.

The Prettiest Place in the Country

                                            {via vintagerosegarden}

Farm & Ranch and National Geographic are two magazines you can always count on at my grandparent's house.  Farm & Ranch has a feature called "Prettiest Place in the Country" and we'd always joke about how we should submit Grandma and Grandpa's farm for that column.

This picture could be called "Prettiest Place in the English Countryside".  The lighting and subject matter are perfect!
