inglenook inspired

I find the inglenook so appealing.I can just imagine curling up by the warmth of the crackling fire. It sounds so inviting, even on this summer day. And it inspires me to try to capture the charm of the inglenook in my own home. So,  I’ve spent hours pinning family rooms in search of inspiration.   Now, I have a renewed sense of direction.  I plan to combine old world charm with modern elements to recreate the essence of the inglenook.
 Wish me luck!

Until next time,

Homemaking is Mrs. Hines' first love. So, when she isn't decorating or writing, you can find her at home watching television with Mr. Hines or trying to keep up with her teenaged daughter.
