Sometimes, all I want is a quiet place to sit. Know what I mean?
When everything starts to feel a little hectic, I think it's important to acknowledge a basic need: peace.
I think peace is like chocolate. You only need a little bit, and it goes a long way. Just like a square of 85% cocoa Lindt! I love to nest in my bedroom, the calmest room of the house, with sunlight filtered through pale green curtains, a huge stack of mismatched cushions, a good book or fresh magazine and the latest crochet attempt. Add a little glass of red wine and it's heaven. But even if I don't have the time to luxuriate like Cleopatra, just five minutes in a quiet garden seems to help.
I think I'd be quite calm in a hanging lounger. What do you do when you need a little peace?
