Little Corners

You love your home, right? But what about that hand-me-down sofa you just can’t shake. Or the shabby wall-to-wall carpeting that just isn’t in the budget to replace. We all have areas in our spaces that we’d like to improve upon, but why focus on them? Let’s enjoy the parts that make our hearts go pitter patter. The light fixture in the entryway that you saved up for. Or the chair that’s been passed down in your family for three generations. Yes? YES! Our favorite little corners where you wouldn’t change a thing deserve to be celebrated.

That’s why we’re starting a new feature – Little Corners. Right here, right now and I’m kicking things off with my favorite spots in my own house. If you’re interested in contributing and sharing your favorite corners, please email for details. Let’s focus on the things we’re doing right rather than what we’d like to change!

    This post could NOT have come at a better time. I spent all weekend cringing at what to do with my space. I was a bit overwhelmed. I think if I focus on the corners that I love, it will help me like my home much better than I did this weekend! Little bright spots! Love.

    I love your house! And you’re so right — I always remind myself not to go crazy when moving in somewhere. Buying furniture & decor en masse is not nearly as special as the story that comes with acquiring pieces slowly and whens something strikes you!

    :) this is perfect. I have a whole folder of photos similar to these I labeled “nooks” and it’s always those little spots in my own space that I love to look at
