a sitting room...

full of sunshine and succulents. Wouldn't you die to have one?



From Melanie's dear friend Kate's house (her mom's house actually), an insanely beautiful, special, walk-around-with-jaw-on-the-floor type of California craftsman in Hollywood.

This sunroom used to be a porch on the second floor but some time in it's history, was enclosed and turned in a perfect home for books and plants and afternoon readers.

I wish I had a better picture, but alas...

oooooh I love succulents ... unfortunately my boyfriend insists I'm a plant killer and refuses to let me keep any more plants in the apartment ... which means, I'll probably just sneak out and get one anyway!

I will, I will! I promise. I just have to sort through the pics and get the post ready. It's kind of a weekend project, not an after work, after dinner project. Next week, for sure.

What a lovely room. It calls for tea and a good book in the afternoon sunshine.
