Spring Forward Bliss

It is 7:57am and my entire household is still asleep. I assure you, this NEVER happens. But Spring has nearly arrived in all it’s forward-ness affording me nearly TWO HOURS to enjoy a quiet early morning to myself with not one but TWO cups of HOT coffee. If you’re a mom, you know that drinking and enjoying a cup of coffee are two entirely different things. I usually guzzle my first cup of the day, and I would inject the caffeine if I thought it might work its magic any sooner. Unfortunately without it I’ve been known to put a diaper on Mia over her clothing and give my cell phone a new home in the freezer. But not this morning. While I could have used the time to fold a load of laundry or pack a few boxes for our upcoming move, I have taken this rare and precious moment for myself. And what better way to do it than to drool scroll through Elle Decor’s Look Book? I went to sleep last night thinking about our new house and how I want to design the space. As you know, Clark and I are songwriters. Therefore the muse must be given a proper space to inspire, right? Lately, we try to catch our ideas as they come in our family room, but the site of Raggedy Anne hanging out of the toy box with her skirt pulled over her head doesn’t exactly scream Top 40. We need a room to read, to write, to enjoy adult conversation and a hot cup of coffee more often than just once a year when the blessed time changes. Although it may be the caffeine jitters, here are a few living rooms that made my heart go pitter-patter.

Which room would you cozy up to with a good read and a hot cup of Joe?

Spring Forward, to you I raise my empty mug and credit the stylings of my future living room and the royalty points
it will surely inspire.

Happy Tuesday!

    I like the rug in the first picture……the green and white chairs in the second pic and flowers in the third! I think we can pull this all together and create an amazing adult room with lots of style!
