eye candy {morning retreat}

When I was fresh out of college my mornings were precious--I would get up early to watch the news, eat a full breakfast and have a moment of calm before a long day of work. Nowadays I am lucky if I even have enough time to turn on the coffee pot! I think that if I had this lovely sun porch in which to enjoy the morning light that perhaps I could get back to the morning routine of my early 20's.

I just love the tolix chairs mixed with the simple farmhouse style table and the large potted topiaries--all in all a perfect morning retreat.

wow, in my early 20's I slept til the very last minute, rushed out the door, stopped at Caribou for something laden with fat and sugar and costing $4 I didn't have, and was late to work.
Love it all... So calming & gorgeous! I feel your pain! I wonder sometimes if I even brush my teeth running out of the house {shhhh}! Yes that is a perfect morning retreat!

This is so welcoming and relaxing. I think fresh flowers and plants always tone down the mood.

I would love to have a relaxing breakfast here every morning. What a great way to start the day! Thanks for sharing the photo!
Gosh that story and that picture reminds me of how much I miss my 20's. Now I understand what everyone meant when they would say, "Enjoy it while you can!"
Green house scenes totally get me to simmer down, and enjoy the day.

If this is what greeted me every morning before I went to work, I would likely never actually get to work ;) So much loveliness.

Beautiful! I may have to reblog this post. I think you'd really enjoy the photographer's work I just posted on my blog (akadamson.blogspot.com)of interiors and things.

I love the use and look of outdoor furniture ... indoors. It's just so relaxing and beautiful, and the perfect sort of retreat.

Thanks for sharing this lovely photo!
