The Best Accessory

In my humble opinion, there is no better accessory than beautiful, natural light from undressed windows.

There are no words for how much I love this mudroom.
And windows all around? Swoon.

I would love to wake up to this view every morning.
And those mini windowpanes to the left are amazing.

A sitting room with windows all around. A dream come true.

There really is nothing like the soft light of an open window.

I've always really admired photographers who can capture the beauty of a room. Not to mention the subtleties of natural light. I hope your week is off to a beautiful start!

P.S. I'm out of town for a bit, so I may be a tad slow responding to comments or emails. xo

oh my!! I so heart an undressed window.. How true!! Thats the only reason I've put blinds in my bedroom.. atleast they can be drawn up completely to give an undressed effect.

Love all the pictures... specially the bedroom.. stunning!

Glad to have found your blog. I am a fellow Bay Area mom, and agree about the natural light. It can make or break (lack of) a room!

I too love the mudroom....I am definitely filing this away in my inspiration folder for when I have my own home. Thanks for sharing such inspiring pictures.
