As the silence of the morning fills our home, I bask in the sound of calm. The scent of coffee and toast fill the room and before my mind becomes occupied with too many thoughts, I sit in our humble home and listen to the soft murmur of silence. This home of ours, where the light pours in in abundance, even on the gloomiest of days. Where our family has shared laughs and tears and always welcomes us with comfy couches and warmth. This home, where mess collects and spills have known to have happened. This home where Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny have walked through. This home where we learned to tie our shoelaces, snap our fingers and whistle. This home where we’ve practice our reading and out of tune school instruments. This home where we have endured hardships but also overwhelming blessings. This home where we have learned to forgive. This home where memories have been and are being made. This, is the home we love.
I am so excited and honoured to be participating in The Inspired Room Tour – with my friend Melissa from The Inspired Room – to celebrate the release of her
new book The Inspired Room on November 1st. A book filled with beautiful photos and ideas on how to love the home you have.
You have probably heard me say this several times – your home is not about the things that hang on the wall, the latest home decor trends or perfectly placed chairs. Your home is a sanctuary and a little nest. A nest where what matters is the people…….
…or maybe a furry creature, you do life with.
Your home is that place that welcomes you after a long day at work or a relaxing day at the beach.
It’s the place that whether big or small, humble or glamorous, fills your heart with comfort.
That’s why I love this book. Not only is it filled with beautiful images and easy ideas, but it also conveys that important message : LOVE THE HOME YOU HAVE.
You can pre order your own copy by going HERE.
And you can also be part of this Inspired Room Tour by sharing your own inspired room. Go HERE for all of the details.
Thank you so much for visiting today. If you have a minute, you can visit the rest of my friends and their Inspired Rooms.
Lucy, your home is so lovely! I feel relaxed just looking at it. I’m very honored that you would share your home and my book, too. Thank you so much, it means a lot to me. xo
Beautifully wrote. And so very true. Love your blog and your artwork. (bought some pillow covers recently and love them!) Your craft ideas are wonderful and I have come back to painting with watercolors because of you. Thank you so very much! God bless.

I love the pix of your pup on the sofa. Your life in home are enviable. I love “homemaking”. We just made an offer on a house and found out our offer was accepted. This should be the last house we ever buy, so we have chosen a home that we can age gracefully in. Right size and floorpan, close to town. It’s loaded with storage and charm. It needs remodeling but it’s not overwhelming. So excited. I will be watching your blog for inspiration.

I always love to look at your house. It looks so nice and comfy cosy yet it also looks lived in (although not as lived in as my parents house! LOL). We also have a mantel and all we ever do is put cards up on it, birthday, anniversary, etc. We don’t do what you do. Maybe we need to take some inspiration from you.
So beautiful written and photographed, Lucy. x

I often try to win a gift myself. My son is very fond of various electronics, because he is a teenager and is interested in a lot of them. Recently I was thinking about what to give him because it’s his birthday, and then I found lootboxes on Drakemall and decided to test and win these prizes, I found here https://drakemall.com/boxes/daily-free-box , there are great free electronics and you can open this box even every day and win something. Already caught the gift of a smartphone and headphones. Already had time to come, so I’m ready for the holiday!
