Happy Holidays! May your home be cozy and bright.

By Virginia Barden, December 9, 2018

There is extra attention paid to “home” this time of year. If you are like me, much of that attention is driven by the need to stay dry, warm and immersed in lots of lights as the PNW winter sets in— it’s so dark out now!!  As important to many, however, is creating a home environment that keeps us inspired, motivated and meaningfully connecting with each other. Baking, twinkle lights, lots of coffee and the extra long times in pajamas are now encouraged.

This post is just an opportunity for me to reflect out loud, (so, thanks). I guess I’m trying to say how wonderful a time of year it is and how thankful I am for all of you. The ability to help people build whatever “home” is right for them is so meaningful and rewarding to me. The house is just the vessel for so much more.

For this holiday season, I wish you the ability to slow down, savor the time and space you’ve made for enjoying your home and each other.



*I’m also crazy in love with the fresh prints from El Barquero in Spain as seen in my little holiday scenescape. If your curious, you can find it here on Etsy.
