Hello there! I’m Heather from The Lovely Cupboard.
My home is a haven because it’s a collection of things that make me feel comfortable, grounded, and inspired.
I used paint colors that have an icy cool feel as you move from room to room. Whites, grays, blues and taupe make me feel at ease.
I appreciate the use of bold paint colors in other homes and know how enlivening they can be, but they aren’t for me. I feel relaxed with my color palette.
I feel grounded as I see pieces around my home that were passed to me from my mother and grandmother.
Many of them were collected from their travels all over Europe and Asia.
While heirlooms are only things, and things cannot buy us happiness or heritage, they do make me feel connected to family and serve as a constant reminder of where I come from.
I feel inspired by the process of creating a room over time. My rooms never stay the same long, and I’m learning allow a room to evolve with me as I grow and change as well.
Thank you Heather for sharing your haven!
