This is a little nondescript area off my kitchen.
In its former life it housed a six seater dining table, but it was a tad squeezy to get past so we moved the dining table to the family room and chucked this old couch here ‘for now’, and now it is my favourite place in the whole fucking house.
In summer it is cooler.
In winter it is brighter.
It is the perfect place to sit sip a coffee.
Or a cocktail with friends when it is too cold outside (or MPS has got the motherfucking bonfire too fucking smoky again OMG).
To sit and watch Boo make his lunch in the mornings, or take a quick snap of my pretty shoes for instagram.
So comfy to lounge around and read a book.
Or sit and chat while food is being prepared in the kitchen just over there.
Boo is just metres away, so feels part it all, but can wander in and out as he pleases.
Or just look over while I am in the kitchen and smile cause the canvas just makes me laugh.
Sure, the couch is old and stained (but it’s comfy).
And the walls could do with an update in colour (but it is neutral).
And the cushions are just the random ones and the room is ‘unstyled’. (obvious by the whateverthatthingis on the floor *gasp* and cushions not perfectly straight. Random shot found on my phone. Stuck in bed, I am on the Supermodel Diet remember? Not getting out of bed for less than 10,000* so sure as shit not going to go and take a styled shot with perfect pillows and clean floors)
But it is my happy place.
And every time I walk past what is essentially a thoroughfare from the kitchen to the family room, I do so with a smile on my face and look forward to the next time I can sit down and enjoy it again.
Do you have an area in your home that makes you really happy?
(see, I can do posts that are not sad sacks of shit!)
*I realise that this joke dates me and this makes me cry.
