A Room Of One’s Own…

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are at
Theodore Roosevelt

Hello, sweet friend…

No doubt the biggest difference between an
old house and the newer ones…

is the change where the kitchen is the center of the house and almost all daytime space revolves around the kitchen.. I am one of those who actually enjoys working in the kitchen alone… (I see it as somewhat of my sanctuary)

This time of quarantine has taught me…

now more than ever the importance of having a room to escape to…

the proverbial room of one’s own…(We all need physical space to stay balanced)

That being said I recently defined separate living areas between two rooms (living room and dining alcove) simply by sewing curtains for the French doors…

The results make a happier statement within our home and somehow enhance moments of the day by creating a space in which we can enjoy & celebrate specific activities…
