i almost lived in...

a trendy modern loft apartment in the city...


It seemed like a fun idea. But we bought an old Victorian terrace instead...

and, eventually, ended up living in a stone house...



funny, the abode impulses, and the instinctual pull.


I still entertain the idea of living right in the battle line of a chaotic city for a little while. Like New York, or London. I love London but yet to visit NY. I want to pop out to grab the remotest of breakfast whims and catch the latest art exhibit.....



but for now, tranquility.

Is your current house your natural abode?

  1. your house looks very tranquil indeed ~ there is something about a stone structure that is very romantic, in my opinion...

    thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I look forward to exploring bohemian twilight ;-)

  2. I think a home in the country is the way to go. That said, I'm moving to Brooklyn. I need some time in the city before I make my way back to the country again.

  3. Although the loft looks absolutely cool (actually, it looks warm, but I think you know what I mean) I'd prefer the stone house. I used to be a city person, but that has long gone. I'd love to live in the country... or in a place like Santa Fe in an adobe house with rich colors and a wild garden... dreams (in real life I live in a completely unspectacular ranch-style house with a beautiful low-water garden smack in the middle of wine country close to the Pacific Ocean - doesn't sound that bad, actually).

  4. amanda, tranquil 90% of the time... of course, there's horrendous thunderstorms... but that's good noise... i think. :)

    brandi, welcome, i think living in one gives appreciation for the other, whichever it may be.

    hi carola, we definitely have the wild garden!

  5. I'm living in a city I don't love, but we have a new house with a yard, which makes a difference. The compromises we make for work and family! Ideally I would love to live either deep within a bustling metropolis, like London or N.Y.C., or in a smaller city steeped in history, like Florence. One day...

  6. I have moved a lot...City's... to suburbs. Right now I just moved to Putney in London and the feeling of having both... house with a little garden and the city with all it's life makes me not want to move again.

    A great bakery nearby, never hurst!!!
    Have a great day!

  8. We live in a very modern contemporary house, but actually having just been back to London where we used to live and stay with friends in a 15th century place I now yearn for those old beams...

  9. oh how fun! My house is nothing special - a simple one bedroom apartment (for now!) overflowing with love and atmosphere but lacking space. Soon, we hope to move to a spacey, fancy loft in the city :)

  12. I posted a comment here that got lost in the blogger fiasco I guess.

    I have always wanted to live by the sea; maybe someday.
