Home Inspiration: Tripod

Some homes inspire me. Usually they’re the ones filled – and overflowing – with love, warmth, and joy. There is a special peacefulness that comes along with those characteristics.

Home Inspiration: Potatoes

Home Inspiration: Fruit Plate

We were able to spend an afternoon at the home of some dear friends. The Mrs. has blessed her home with a style that is warm, inviting, and eclectic. She has combined the cabin-feel that her husband desired with her vintage, rustic touch. And to top it all off, they built the home to have a large line-up of south-facing windows which let in the most beautiful natural lighting.

Home Inspiration: Table Setting

Home Inspiration: Onions

As I looked around the room and the set table before me, I couldn’t help but pick up my camera and capture just a few of the many frames and compositions that were racing through my mind.

Home Inspiration: Water Pitcher

It was a pleasure to capture the small, intentional details of a home filled with not only rich, organic foods, but also the joy that comes with knowing our Savior.

    Beautiful post, Emily Rose!
    It is my prayer that our home would reflect the love of Christ as well. I am a perfectionist and have had to realize that it is nearly impossible to have a perfect “magazine” home. Although a clean and orderly appearance, sweet aroma, and pleasing-to-the-eye decor can add such a lovely touch, it is truly the attitudes and demeanor of the people in the home that make it a sweet haven to live in!
    I love being inspired as well. =)
    Many Blessings,

    Emily Rose,

    We thought you might be interested to know that we recently published a post on our blog entitled, “The Journey to Biblical Femininity”. Within the body of the post is a list of blogs and authors we used to illustrate the topic. Your blog was included in that list. We also thought noting such blogs might increase your readership and followers. If you’d like to see the post for yourself, here is the link:

    I think I would love Mrs.’ house if I saw it! I would love my kitchen to have the same touches. I absolutely love the look of red potatoes! I think I’ll have a bowl of them and also onions on my counter. :)

    In Christ,

    Ahhhh….. similar things were racing through my mind as I was looking at these photos! Oh, I just LOVE them! I pray my home one day (Lord willing) will have that feel and also pray the Konvalin home feels this way too! ;)

    I love your pics~pottery is wonderful! I love the fact that it is useful and decorative at the same time. I love my pottery bowls for display, but I use them just about everyday as well.
