rooms that fill me with wonder...




(all photos without following credit are from my favorites on we heart it)

i see photographs of rooms that i want to walk in, explore, day dream in and i wonder what stories the walls hold, what memories held dear, what secrets hidden. houses fascinate me. old wooden floors and wallpapered walls. windows and peaks. i dream of these things. i think that's why i am so enchanted with carroll avenue and want to go stroll through the neighborhood again and pretend that one day i will there...

I love the last one. It reminds me of some of the artists' homes in Woodstock that I used to know as a child...places where you have to climb on a bed to grab a book from someone's ragged and mysterious collection.

Oh yes, the last one !
Reminds me of the Charleston, the Bloomsbury Group's home ...

If you don't know then I'm pretty sure you'd love the colours & the ambiance ... I sure do !

Wow. Big sigh. I love these rooms too. Makes me just want to crawl up in them and read all day! I need to do some serious redecorating!
