My slice of heaven is a simple place. In the middle of a busy city, a single large room. The place would not separate work from home, night from day,
One side would be a wall of windows from floor to ceiling, overlooking a skyline or a bridge or simply look out. The other wall, shelves of books, floor to ceiling. In the “living room” area, I would have one large leather couch that pulls up and hugs me in, one round table for writing and a television (until Mad Men goes off the air, at least.)
The kitchen would flow from the living area. The bathroom would flow from there and have a huge shower. And I think I would like a bidet, just because I’ve never had one and they seem useful. And the final room, a bedroom with a bed. In every room, a wall of windows on one side, a wall of books on the other.
And of course, a dog. Maybe two.
That is all. No granite countertops, no fancy exotic woods, no heavy furniture, no expensive Italian tile. No lawn to mow, not roof to tile, no siding to wash, no shrubbery to prune. The wall of windows overlooking the city would be my artwork; the wall of books my only vice.
This blog post is part of a blog-off series with a group of bloggers from different professions and world views, each exploring a theme from his/her world view. This was about “Exploring your little bit of heaven” It extends a previous #letsblogoff about the simple life. To explore how others handled the theme, check them out below. I will add links as they publish.
