Today I have the pleasure of Showing Off and Bragging about Suzanne of Pieced Pastimes. I think you are going to really enjoy her home, so warm and inviting. She has filled her home with a style I like to call "rustic elegance". I love the touches of nature and the beautiful wood and stone details that make their home so unique and inviting. Grab a drink, sit back and enjoy, you will love this tour.
I am a big fan of Marty's Show Off & Inspire Series, so when she asked to feature my home I was beyond flattered. My husband and I built our cape home here in New Hampshire 30 years ago and raised our 5 children here. The weather in New England is unpredictable and our home has weathered many storms over the years. True to form, we are in the midst of yet another snow storm today.
We repurposed an antique factory cart into this coffee table a few years ago. Finding new ways to use found objects is a favorite pastime of ours.
Our mantel decor changes with the seasons. I start with a basic idea and build up from there.
My inspiration for this years Winter mantel was to capture the stillness of the season.
Our master bedroom is simplistic in its decor but filled with the memories of our lives.
Our bedside table carries the one essential for a beautiful life.
This is the view towards the closet side of the room. Sloped ceilings are an inherent detail of cape style homes. We took advantage of the feature by adding lighted storage space in the 4' knee wall.
The trapunto design on the matalaise bedspread inspired me to create some of my own wholecloth quilts.
I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse into our home and that you will stop by for a visit. I love to share my Home Decor, DIY, Repurposing, Recipes, Sewing, and other projects with you. One can never have too many friends. Thanks so much to Marty for inviting me to 'Showoff'.
Didn't I tell you this was a beautiful home? I knew you would love it as much as I do. Thanks so much Suzanne for letting me brag a little about you today, it was such a thrill to have you here. Now if you don't already follow Suzanne at Pieced Pastimes you really need to rush over and hit the follow button. You will love to follow along with all of her posts and projects.
