The Way We Live: Art, Tales And Canine Friends

February 24, 2014

While in Boston, I had the opportunity to spend a night at a dear friend’s place.  I’ve always felt welcomed and comfortable in this home.  My friend’s place is earthy, eclectic and classical at the same time.  Little vignettes scattered throughout the house are meant to remind of exotic trips, special family memories or stories of a personal nature.  There are seashells from a trip we all took to Vieques Island almost 9 years ago, her Nana’s favorite chair, seed pods collected on hikes in many faraway places and, of course, there is Henry (featured above).  The walls are a feast for the eyes due to an amazing art collection. While music played faintly in the background, I snapped away trying to capture a brief moment of my life in her very special space.

Thank you JG for hosting me and for sharing your warm and cozy home with our Cocoon Home Blog readers.

One of my favorite things as a blogger is to feature people’s homes in “The Way We Live”.  Homes that aren’t overly decorated or styled, homes just as they are.  It has been gratifying to photograph so many wonderful spaces.  You can see more of them here.

I believe that Cocoon Home Blog inspires its readers to surround themselves with objects that speak to them and for them.

If you’re a new visitor to my blog (via Apartment Therapy) please take a moment to look around the site.  It’s where I feature work done for clientsand also share inspirational design images,botanical compositions, occasional DIY projects, and reflections on my personal journey through life.

If you like what you see and read, please cast your vote for Cocoon Home Blog here in The Homies Awards under Home Design and Inspiration.
Many Thanks!

Sweet and definitely charming! Gorgeous floors. Wood makes rooms shine. I enjoyed how you captured “little best things.” Pooch Henry is having a great day! Thanks for sharing.

P.S. Recently discovered your blog.

What a lovely home. It is beautiful and sophisticted yet relaxed. Exactly what our home aspires to be (someday…). Thank you for sharing :)

I love the way Henry’s front paws are nonchalantly crossed, displaying a confident, relaxed posture while guarding his beautiful home.
