breathing room

These images have been in my design file for quite some time and each time I run across them I find them as fresh and appealing as ever.  Every comfort is accounted for,  yet restraint is evident in the unadorned plaster walls and the modest number of purely decorative items throughout.

The owner/designer is Jenny Peters and she certainly has captured the essence of the design philosophy I’ve often mentioned throughout linen & lavender: for a restorative, inspiring living environment we need to have areas we intentionally leave bare. —A rest for the senses…breathing room.

  1. Bonjour LeAnn

    Grâce à ce give-away, je revois vos posts (avec grand plaisir) et surtout j'essaye de traduire vos textes ( chose que j'avais bêtement omis de faire auparavant ) et c'est touchant de rajouter encore plus de beauté à ces images, grâce à vos mots.
    Vous pensez votre environnement, comme on compose un tableau…

  2. Hi, Spanish Moss Girls 😉
    Thank you for stopping by. I agree. The mantels and lighting are some of my favorites, too.

    Good to see you! Hope you are doing great. Hugs!~L
