I have really come to love and appreciate Sunday mornings. In fact, they are my favorite time of the week. Sunday mornings are a time to relax, take your time enjoying a cup of coffee, have brunch with friends, go for a morning walk and basically just relax. I live alone and waking up on a Sunday morning, especially when the sheets have been freshly washed, with the sun peeking into my bedroom has really got to be one of the best moments. Everything is calm, quiet and light and the best part is that it is all mine. I allow myself not to feel pressured by the to do lists and all the random to dos that pop into my head, a difficult task. I try not to mindlessly jump out of bed to begin my tasks. I try not to schedule myself to be anywhere. So for a few moments, every Sunday morning I get to really absorb my environment, the sounds, the colors, the textures and truly take pleasure in my calm, little haven. This Sunday morning I’d like to share a little bit of my Sunday morning coziness with you. Happy Sunday!!!
Love the light coming into the room as well as the textures…brings me calm
Having gone to fashion school and working in the textile/home furnishings industry for many years, I have been very lucky to become friends with other design lovers. Some of them are even quite crafty so when my friend Markus offered to make me a lamp for my bedroom, you better believe I didn’t say no. The lighting in my room was not the most flattering. My light source came from a ceiling fan. Yeah, not so great. I shared my dilemma with Markus and that’s when he proposed his design. He had an idea in mind for a small hanging lamp that would incorporate brass and a colored cord. We thought the placement could be on either side of my bed or maybe even centered on the wall behind my bed. Either way, it could be a nice reading lamp that would create a much nicer environment than the ceiling fan did.
Take a look at the lamp…and I think he may be taking orders….
Simplicity at its best
Would it be too much to ask for another one for the other side?
