It must be an early spring cleaning bug that has me in a redecorating mood. One of the perks of my cottage is a screened porch just off my kitchen. Actually, it was the one amenity that stole my heart the moment I saw it. I imagined sipping my morning coffee in that sweet space. I would browse through Victoria and Country Living...I would create wonderful little tidbits of artwork. I would journal to my heart's content. The porch has certainly provided all of those opportunities. Since it extends over a patio area, it lends a bird's eye view of the backyard. Looking ahead to spring chirping, I'm starting to think ....sleeping porch! I will keep my bistro table and the ladderback chairs. I would like to add this beautiful daybed from Pottery Barn. Isn't it charming??? Its charm carries a trendy price. However, it makes a lifestyle statement of comfort and simplicity to cherish forever! My decorating style is more shabby chic/cottage than the ad picture. No netting...I want the feeling of freedom! One beautiful floral cotton quilt and a couple of pillows will make it just the right place for an afternoon nap....or a summer's night with the crickets. I wonder why this one daybed has so captivated me. It's the blue...the beautiful blue that hints of days near the sea.
