    Functional Art for The Home

    Mmmm. Yes, please. You know what functional art is? It’s art that is not only lovely to behold, but it also serves a function; a utilitarian purpose. It’s useful. And I am all about functional art in my home. I have a rule, it’s actually #129 on my list of 365 Ways to Be Awesome:   Put nothing in your home that isn’t useful to your life, or meaningful to you. I’m lucky, because wherever possible, I try to do both. At the same time. And, why not? Why not have a light fixture which adds beauty to a room? Or a bit of decorative storage that stores things you need regularly?…

    My Comfy & Cozy Sitting Nook

    This room has gone through a few evolutions since we first moved in. First, it was just a space that I had no clear idea what to do with. I did know that I wanted it to be a place to socialize; maybe have a cup of tea with a friend, or a glass of wine with my love. I’m a writer, and I wanted a space that felt inspired. As it turned out, this was my first truly inspired space in this home. We got a couple chairs from IKEA, a little end table, a foot stool, and this lovely desk. My husband had this awesome folding screen made for me…
