i spy: hibernation.

it’s chilly and gray here today, and the thanksgiving holiday is winding down, so i guess i’m really beginning to feel that wintery, homey hibernation coming on. it’s time to find good books to read, some crafty indoor projects, and really layer up with cozy sheepskins and warm fuzzy throws. so today, i spy some homey hibernation!

i’d like to lounge about in this bedroom reading all day long (above), and then invite friends over for a home-cooked meal in this dining room (below), via trine thorsen (via the style files).

    i can’t wait until we reach hibernation weather here in the south. as of today it’s still 70 degrees. come on winter!

  9. I like the idea of that bushel of branches nailed to the wall. cool 3D art!

  10. Wow I am absolutely loving this post… I was just thinking my feet are so cold.. sitting in the kitchen… behind my laptop for an hour or so.. You make me want to take out all blankets .. throw them on the couch.. lighten candles … or just cuddle up in bed with hot thee and magazines..

    Great post ,, yummie stuff and pictures , desiree

  11. These are the colours of hibernation…. I loved the first photo – it has the smell of winterdays!

    Oh I am envious of your weather…down here in LA we rarely get those cool “hot chocolate” kind of days. I used to live in Colorado where you could count on being snowed at least once a Winter.

    If you are cozying up with a book may I suggest the new Diane Keaton memoir, “Then Again”? I could not put it down – very inspirational to both mothers and daughters.

    Stay warm up there!

  13. Wonderful post as always, I looove the Clay Antler Mobile!

    so glad you all liked the post – i’m just enjoying a little down time after the holiday, i think – and the idea of hanging out in one of these rooms just really appealed to me! :)

  15. If my mouth could water after looking at a blog post, it would be happening right now. Love! x

  16. Mo says:

    Wow, gorgeous. I love it all. Not sure why, but I’m so drawn to these crisp, clean rooms.

  17. PM says:


    Any idea where we can find the lovely wire antler in the dining room?

  18. victoria, this is my favorite post of yours ever.
    lovely culling of beautiful images.

    makes me long for a wood stove. *sigh*

  19. Melanie says:

    Wow, Victoria. This post is beautiful. The images seem like they’re made to go together. At first glance I honestly thought that you were giving us a sneak peek of some new fabulous magazine! Hope your ankle is feeling better! xo
