…the home of Valentin Loellmann in Maastricht (as photographed by his brother Jonas Loellmann, featured on Bloesem’s lets get personal column).

…pacific north west, as captured by jennifer from field & sea (which is also a quiet space I love to visit regularly).

…watermelons, in the larder room, on a hot day. yes, please. (photo from this post).

tattes bakery as captured by nadia from la porte rouge. dreamy.

Lately I’m craving quiet spaces, quiet moments, quiet thoughts.

    My brain has been spinning and buzzing all day, but a sense of calm washed over me as I looked through these images. Thanks for the moment of quiet, Pia!

    That first photo filled me with a sense of calm – I’d like to lay back against the cushions on that window seat, with the blooms above me, a book in one hand a glass of wine in the other…. bliss. I am sure sitting by the water’s edge as the sun goes down in Amsterdam is a good place for you right now Pia.

    thank you so much for the link to field and sea – did you see the concert poster with the empty sheet music leaf and the egg? i loved it so much i had to blog it instantly; it suited a piano teacher on holiday perfectly =)
    i hope you too are getting the quietness you’re craving!

    can relate completly; after spending time at Palm beach staring at the beautiful blue ocean, a vista to behold, I am calm and happy, ready to re-enter the urban grey unknown.

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence that all these photographers and bloggers from the Pacific Northwest share that calmness and love of nature. It makes me homesick…in a good way :)

    Dear Pia,
    Thanks for this lovely post and this lovely blog. I have been following along for a while now just lurking but thought it was time that I said thanks for all of the serene and beautiful moments that you provide. I haven’t got my copy of the book yet but it looks fabulous. I wish you all the best with it. I look forward to my continued visits to the blog house.
    Cheers,
    Suzanne

    Well hows that, I just posted one of Valentin Loellmann’s clay lampshades on my “Friday Favorites” sourced from the “Bloesem” post. The house really is so beautiful.

    Glass of wine in Richmond Park, late afternoon – would that suit? I’ll bake something from Rose Bakery’s cookbook…
