Spring in New England…One day it’s sunny and warm and then the next it’s snowing. I am loving these warmer days lately. I still need sweaters and I haven’t packed away all my flannel pajamas just yet, but just the sun shining is a welcomed gift.
It has been so nice to open up our screened in porch for the season. On a 50 or 60 degree day, I can sit out there and it feels like a little blanket of comfort the way the sun warms up this space. When it’s 70’s and up, we open up those windows and enjoy the cool breeze. It’s one of my favorite places to read in the whole house.
I haven’t done much to it except paint the windows and floor. We are talking about redoing the walls and putting in new windows, but I do enjoy the pine boards and the way they glow in the sun. There’s an old-timey comfort to them that I’m not quite ready to let go of just yet.
As I said, the porch is my favorite place in the whole house to read. The light is so perfect. I spent the afternoon looking at some of my favorite books. I love a good coffee table book, don’t you? I was in the mood to peruse my seasonal favorites and do a little window shopping for new ones to add to my collection.
I’ll share my coffee table book picks for spring and summer and my outfit and room details in this post…
Books for Spring & Summer
I am living in sweaters lately. Our home stays quite cool until mid summer and it sometimes feels a little chilly. I snagged that blue one from the J. Crew Factory sale and it’s perfect for springtime. So soft! Sweater and white jean season is upon us—just my everyday uniform lately. For me, it must be headband season too…because I’ve been wearing them every other day it seems.
I don’t know how I went most my life without a screened in porch! They really are such a nice feature and we do enjoy using ours. Originally, I had patio furniture out there, but I decided to put interior furniture in there instead. It doesn’t get ruined because the windows all close quite nicely. It just feels a bit more comforting. I’m glad I made that change.
That’s all for now. I hope you are able to enjoy your homes during this time. I’m grateful for all the sunny days. Stay safe and healthy!
