adding warmth

I love the warmth that natural wood and baskets bring to a home. Just a piece or two is perfect for me. It's been a stuck at home kind of weekend, it's cold and drifting snow.. too yucky to tote two kids around. The down time is actually quite lovely after the busy of the holidays, x

I really love the island in the kitchen with the marble top. It's so perfect for the space!

I am in the process of trying to decide what will be wood and what will be painted in our home...I love the combination of the two, it adds so much more than once material and color throughout.

Off to enter your giveaway! Be sure to stop over and enter my Virgin Saints & Angles giveaway too.


Enjoy the blowing snow, I am off to take coffee & soup to our much deserved framers that are working in this. xo

Injecting natural elements is my favorite. Makes a home just that...'homey'. Enjoy your at home Sunday Sarah!

I love the contrast of a crisp white room and a natural element like wood or non-dyed natural fibers

Sarah baskets are something I plan on adding more of to my decor this year and I just started writing a post on that very subject today. Love your images and I agree, when it is cold and wintry outside it is so nice to snuggle in a blog hop!!! kathysue

Funny, I have been looking to all my wood objects in the house to warm my look. I am feeling very Ralph Lauren all of the sudden.

The kitchen is great - just the right amount of timber to give it warmth without looking cutesy. A very nice post!
