Sunlight Shining Through


I just love it when the sun shines through the rooms in my house in the perfect way. You all know what I mean, right?? 
Here are few pics I have taken over the past few weeks.....
This is taken in my "blue" den. We have two dens so I have to differentiate between the two. This room gets morning sunlight so I have to be quick with the pics because it goes as fast as it comes:)
The same room. This couch used to be dark blue, but I have it covered with a white French linen sheet. It is sort of a "sloppy" look, but I love it. And of course one can't have enough pillows.
You can really see the sheet here. What do you think????
Grain Sack Pillow was made by my sister in law Michele at Maison de Michele. The chair is the Ektorp from Ikea. Love it because it is comfy, a slip cover and it is really inexpensive;))
I just love this little rose in this cup!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week.



  1. Cheryl, like your mirror over your slipcovered chair. OMG, I have a pillow similar to yours. Have a wonderful week.

  2. Cheryl! I have missed your posts and I am so glad you are back! :) You rooms are beautiful! So inviting! And I also love all the vintage lovelies such as the grain sack pillow and french sheet!

  6. Sunlight streaming in the windows makes all the difference in how my home looks and how I feel about it! Love the look of the French linen sheet on your blue sofa...everything looks so pretty! Great pics! :)

  7. Hi Cheryl, Your photos are so lovely. I LOVE your little settee with the shelf above and the rusty round stand!

  8. Love it all! I have the couch that matches that chair and I want the chair, too! I have a pottery barn slipcover that I put on it that looks very similar to your french linen. It's loose, too. I would love to have a French linen one instead! It all looks so cozy and comfy.


  9. It is just beautiful, Cheryl! I have been thinking about adding some ruffled pillows to our couch....trying do decide if I have the energy right now! : / It looks beautiful. Love the Ektorp line too!
