    The rug in the first picture made me wish for hardwood floors in my hallway. I actually have hardwood floors but we haven’t ripped up the carpet over the hallway floor yet. This makes me want to get in there and start ripping away! : )

    These made me happy, too! You have such an artist’s eye for grouping photos to make a mosaic. The first one is just one of those photos that makes your heart sing; imagine what the rest of the house must be like!

    These halls made me smile! :). So cheerful!

  22. Laura

    Those are beautiful! So colorful, yet light and airy. I personally believe a window seat can pretty much make any room :)

  23. janmary, N Ireland

    Great inspiration.

    The hallway in our beach cottage is TINY – no room for any furniture, although I would love to add a little more character/color

    I have some shabby hooks, a couple of signs (“Bless this home” and “Home Sweet Home”, and some vintage postcards. The walls are cream.

    Any other suggestions?

  24. Tracy

    Love (LOVE) the rug in the first pic and the floral romans in the last and… and… and… Thankf for all the pretty, Melissa!

    The first pic makes me want to lay down on all those fluffy pillows. I love the rug. In the other pic, I would love to have that pink lamp. Thanks for sharing.

    Can anyone tell me what kind of rug that is in the first pic? It looks like a rag rug that isn’t woven – I’d love to buy or make one.

    Love, love, love them. I just discovered your website today and I havent been able to keep my eyes off.
