cabin fever…

i got it baaaaad…

the walls of my living room are starting to close in on me having endured a self-imposed sit-in for the best part of the past few weeks…

worse still, trying to configure furnishings in a room with so many decorating impediments is testing the last reserves of my already limited sanity: take one living room & incorporate no less than 3 doorways, a kitchen passcounter, a window & a set of french doors, two large radiators, a fireplace, two wall lights, a wall-mounted temperature control panel & numerous light switches & power points dotted around the perimeter {pause to take a deep breath}, & you’re not actually left with a whole lot of useable wall space at all…

i’ve spent many a late night dragging furniture from one end of the room to the other & i’m no closer to a solution…

humph…

the answer? indulge in a little daydreaming of some cabins that make me feverish for all the right reasons…

like this one on shelter island, new york…

homeowners harriet maxwell macdonald and andrew corrie have what i consider to be a rather unfair advantage over the rest of us when it comes to furnishing their abode: they can take their pick of pieces from their very own homestores, the glorious ochre & equally charming canvas

a girl can dream…

don’t own your own homestores? me neither… luckily i’d be equally happy to follow suit of this tree-top retreat… lots of rugs to keep things cosy underfoot, a meandering art wall & views to die for… yes, i think i could handle being holed up here for a while…

or here for that matter: inviting bedding & a mountain of cushions all arranged beneath a canopy of fringing make this nook one i’d happy hibernate in…

in fact, given the choice of any of these cabins i may never leave home again…
