Preview Of Our New Nest

I hope your Thanksgiving was a festive, joyful celebration, with loads of good eats and good company!

I couldn't believe it when the handyman who has been working on our apartment actually finished. The next morning when I walked into our living room, I felt the most delicious happiness! There was nothing more to do. Everything was in it's place, and everything was perfect.

I took my camera and went from room to room, taking pictures and admiring the calm, quiet beauty of order. Utter satisfaction.

Here's a picture of our dining table. It's just a little preview of the mother and her boyfriend arrived from America today and we stayed up late, talking and laughing, so I'm very tired in a happy way now, but wanted to share this pic before heading to bed.

We are constantly commenting on how much space we have now. We got rid of so many belongings, and I've been revelling in the feeling of having only what we need and love. Sweet simplicity.

We're still waiting on our new linen couch, two barstools, and curtains. But other than that, we're DONE!

More photos to come...

Sending love,

xoxo country girl


  1. Oh my gosh Dawn.. first it is soooo wonderful to see your posting! I have missed you so much! Glad to hear things are settleing down for you and just know how amazing it must be to have your family visiting!! Nothing better than having family surrounding you with love...

    Looking forward to more what I've seen is so beautiful, wish I had some of that simplicity in my

  2. That looks so beautiful. I just love the clean lines and the open feeling. I've been discovering more and more that the open feeling is what I crave, to just get rid of the STUFF, and to have what I need.

    I'm excited to see how you've put that to practice, and, as ever, your decorating skills are top notch!

  3. What a beautiful peaceful living area. I love those colours too - so fresh and clean. I absolutely love your whitewashed floors too. We redid our floors in the same colour but in glossy tiles since we don't have timber floors, but the light colour is so bright and happy it just makes me feel happy to be at home as I can see you are too. Enjoy your new home and time with your family.

  4. I've been looking forward to seeing a glimps of what it looked like. I love the way the winter light hits the room and gives it a white kind of warmth. I'm sure it reflects the love inside. Whata great time for you to make it a home for you all, I'm sure it'll be an extra special Christmas.

  5. I always look forward to your posts, but really love the home shots and the dining room is divine! Can't wait to see more! Hope your Thanksgiving was a blessed event!
