If My Blog Was A Room - Next Up - A Thoughtful Place

I have enjoyed continuing the series If My Blog Was A Room, where I pose the question- If your blog was a room, what would it look like? I am happy to announce the next wonderful blogger in the series... Courtney from A Thoughtful Place! I love reading her blog and seeing her beautiful, amazing DIY projects and design inspirations. When I read her posts, I feel as if I've known her for years! Here is Courtney's beautiful blog header:

And here is what she came up with! Take it away, Courtney!



When Amber from Simple Dwellings asked me to be a part of this creative series, I jumped at the chance. How fun to imagine my blog being an actual space. Too bad I couldn't really narrow it down very well! You'll have to bear with me!




First and foremost, my blog would have an amazing guest room. I would want visitors to feel pampered and relaxed. More than anything,  I would want a space where everyone felt as if they wanted to stay forever.  I think these do the trick. There is definitely an element of connecting the outside with the inside in both of these spaces.

These two images from Traditional Home capture the simple and fresh feeling I hope my blog has. They are formal and yet very comfortable and casual at the same time.










And this space has all the elements of a traditional home, but with an unexpected pop of color and whimsy. I think it says, "Sit down and stay a while!"

And lastly, if my blog were a room, it would be a place to entertain and enjoy friendship. I could spend hours hosting parties behind those French doors or sitting and relaxing with a glass of wine and a dear friend on these chairs. Everything about it is exactly my taste.

Thanks for letting me have fun with this, Amber!

Beautiful rooms! That outdoor space is gorgeous and the lighting looking into the house is pretty. The first photo is a dreamy bedroom with beautiful French doors and soft blue walls. I would like to be a guest there but probably wouldn't want to leave for awhile. I love Tobi's fabric she used in her drapes and pillows. Nice job, Courtney.
