Love Is In The Details

Home can be a tiresome entity if you let it. It's easy to focus on the imperfections and become overwhelmed by the thought of what you still need to make it complete. However, when I take them time to think it through I notice it's the simple and imperfect things in my own home that make me the happiest...
 favorite notes and sentiments
 terracotta and fresh flowers
 family treasures in Saf's room
collections of scents and old books
 handmade pillows
 maps and painted doors
 art supplies

 tarnished silver heirlooms filled with seasonal things
 natural textures and contrasts
old shiny things

  1. I so agree with this. I love those little signs of 'soul' in a home. Detail and traces of true personality and life. Like a decorative finger print by the owner of the home.

    Lovely pictures Leah.

  2. Incredible photos, Leah. The silver tea set looks otherwordly.

    And what is it about tarnished silver that's so beautiful. My mom came recently and nearly had a heart attack when she spied my tarnished silver Revere bowl. I wouldn't let her touch it.

    You have a million pretty spots in your house.

  3. Funny that you should even mention not being satisfied with parts of your home because any photo I've seen looks like perfection to me. Lovely, lovely images.

  5. So true...it's the items attached to memories that have so much meaning to me. Who I was with when I got this or that. What my parents and family have handed down to me. It's all treasured for me. Love the little reminders of love around your home...so beautiful! xx Danielle

  6. I love these little glimpses of your house - the little details that truly make it a home, no? And your photographs, as always, are simply gorgeous. You capture the light in a way that few people can. Beautiful, Leah. It's nice to visit here, even if only virtually. So glad to see you and yours so happy.

    I'm off to check out the Nate Berkus link and your sister's blog.

    much love,

  7. I tend to be overwhelmed a lot, so your post was the dose I needed to bring things back into perspective. I love your details - the family treasures, natural textures, and maps are always so romantic to me. All lovely.
    I am so glad I found your blog :)
