Cozy & Warm

Interior by John Jacob Interiors

This is where I want to be on a cold Sunday afternoon.  By the fire, books at hand, a desk at which to pay a bill or two, table and chairs nearby for a hearty soup lunch.  

Don't you think that in addition to the fire, the brown upholstered wall warms the room too? Without it, the lamps, portraits, and tables would appear to float in mid-air, I think.

Happy Weekend!

A New Year

Crane Beach, Ipswich, Massachusetts

New Year's day was absolutely beautiful in Boston.  Sunny and 53 degrees.  A perfect day for a January walk on Crane Beach in Ipswich.  We hiked on back trails and strolled the beach just before sunset when I took this photo (with surprising quality from my iphone 4s).

Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2012.
