For the past 2 years, much of this blog has been devoted to our home renovation. A home renovation truly consumes you. It's all you can think about and talk about. Makes for very boring cocktail conversation. I fear I have been a very boring cocktail guest and blog writer this past bit, but I cannot help it. Not that it is done, I am so proud of our home and absolutely LOVE it. So when The Boston Globe ran a piece on two of my favorite rooms, our kitchen and Library a few weeks ago, I was over the moon. It is always nice to get that outside approval and justification, however sill and shallow that sounds. On top of my home being published, I got to photograph it! Ice cream sunday with a cheer on top. The article printed three photographs of the space, but I of course took way more.
The Library (pictured above and below)
I use this term loosely. Yes we have a gorgeous built-in bookcase filled with my favorite art, travel and photography books, as well as my hubby's college football helmet, but 1/3 of it is devoted to the TV. Yes, that eye-sore that is the bain of every designers existence, but lets face it...probably the thing in the room that gets the most use.
Here is the living room/library before
I did a post about the kitchen a few months ago on this post), but I styled and reshot it for The Globe piece
The before once again.
