As work begins to slow, I am offered more time to day dream and to read. These opportunities to relax are a welcomed attention. So I thought I might share with you my little dream space. I would love for you to share your space as well, please feel free to comment below.
Where does your mind take you when you wonder into your imagination?
For me, this is a simple one. When I am daydreaming, I picture myself in my own personal library/study. I walk into the door, and there are floor to ceiling book cases that line both the left and the right walls. The room itself is built in a circle with two stories. On the first floor once inside, the scent of light sandalwood and honeysuckle fill the air. The lighting is light and non-abrasive, with a floor lamp just inside the door, and a lamp sitting on the right corner of the desk. The floor is a rich and dark wood plank with a large farm house round rug in the middle. Just past the edge of the rug sits a large writing desk. The desk matches the color of the floor, and glistens in its antiquity. Behind the desk sits a lush leather office chair. It is a lighter tan than the desk, but accents it well. Just behind the chair is a large bay window with a deep purple window seat, decorated with worn but comfortable pillows. The window seems to bring the outside in with rays of sunshine and the colors of various roses in view. On the left of the desk is a record player, with a couple of classical music records slanting between the legs of the wooded table on which the player sits. To the right of the desk is a metal winding staircase that leads to the second floor. The second floor is matched with the same deep wood floor and floor to ceiling bookcases as on the first, except on the wall with the bay window there is a small sitting area. In that delicate space, there is a oversized wingback chair. It is a light yellow, and on its back drapes a cashmere purple blanket. There is a small cushioned foot stool that sits just below the bottom of the seat, and across from it is a squat pot belly stove made of cast iron. A small basket next to it is filled with short and easily manageable logs.
I imagine myself writing or reading or sitting and daydreaming in this space. It is warm and inviting, and I am surrounded by my favorite things.
Sometimes little details change, but for the most part, it is the same space. It is my dream space.
What is your dream space? I would love to venture there with you, so please share your dream with me below!
