Saturday with friends

Late afternoon. The sun is hanging low in the west. A cool breeze nips and snaps to remind me that winter hasn't quite gone yet. I'm sitting waiting for friends to arrive. Wine, cheese, light the fire when the sun goes down. Jazz and chicken pot pie for dinner. Maybe mushy pies. A movie with orange almond cake during the interval. (Remember intervals and choc top cones?) Easy going, relaxed and just perfect. A bit like this warehouse space. Warm, cosy, real. Perfect for a Saturday afternoon with friends. Found at the always inspiring Airspace Locations. The Shoe Factory.

...one those rare cases where the space makes the interior rather than the other way around...put anything within reason in this space and it will come alive!

Wow! I would kill for all of that wood and brick. LOVE!! And the windows in the livingroom are gorgeous. Still don't understand the whole 'throw a sheet over the sofa' thing. First, it is always annoying to sit on in my experience because it slides forward and off of the sofa with repeated sittings so you're constantly adjusting it. And two, it always seems to state that your sofa must be too ugly, too dirty, or too covered in pet hair to be seen in public. It reminds me of college dorms and doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the decor.

This feels like memories to me--maybe the warm sun, the wood. Like my childhood. It gives me the warm-and-fuzzies. Gorgeous!
