Hump Day: A Bath With a View.

It's a rainy Wednesday in my neck of the woods, so here is a simple image to inspire us all. Wonderfully designed bath with lounger and sauna, and that million dollar view. brazil-bath

It's the sort of bath that you can just sink in to for hours, and then, emboldened by a sense of privacy and the wonder of nature, you stand bolt up right and shout "Here I am world, in my barest form! Take me or leave me!"

Invigorating...until the neighbours drop by to discuss a troubling site-line they have from their living room. And then you're on the hunt for a new home. Welcome to Hump Day.

Decor: A Converted Cottage

A personal design fantasy of mine involves renovating an old cottage in England. White washed walls, a thatch roof...it's the stuff of romantic notions indeed. Until such time as I up-stakes and move across the pond, or find a comparable cottage in these parts, I'll have to make do with house tours like this one of a beautiful little 1840's cottage. bedroom

So pretty - and the kitchen highlights that we don't necessarily need 150 square feet of prep space. Small is beautiful.
