the friday files

I've said this before and I'll say it again - winter is my favourite season. Most people think I'm nuts! How could someone possibly love cold weather, long nights, and leave-less trees. But I do. I love wrapping myself in sweaters and scarves watching the snow fall outside. I love warm bowls of earthy soup and hearty stews or even better a night of fondues (cheese and chocolate - sublime!). I love walks through the woods where the only sound is the crunch of the snow beneath your feet and the occasional bird. I'm happiest on the top of the mountain with skis on my feet and the promise of a hot sauna at the end of the day.

And whenever I dream ( I mean, really dream) of my perfect home I always return to what I guess could be referred to as a Nordic style. White walls, pale wood floors, abundant natural light, sparse furnishings and a certain sense of simplicity. Homes like the ones below.

(Speaking of winter I'm over at Space for Inspiration today sharing some of my favourite holiday traditions including my fave Christmas movie and song. Come by and take a look!)

Happy weekend!
