Booklover’s Dawn

leave a comment »

This cozy scene is about half as stuffed with books as my real life study is, I’m ashamed to say! I’m celebrating the early light of dawn here, which is much softer than the cold light of day and also a whole lot quieter.  I love this time of day when I can just sit and relax before everyone turns up to partake in breakfast.

The scene takes place in the bookshelves alcove of Cheeky Pea’s latest cottage, the Sherborne. I really like the open plan design downstairs because when you have a small place it can be a bit claustrophobic to put in sundry walls and doors, but in this cottage you could use room dividers and still retain the feeling of space, especially with the generous picture windows and ceiling height. I’m including a Slideshow for the cottage, inside and out.
