Giveaway :: Paloma’s Nest

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

{please visit Paloma’s Nest here}

Welcome to our month-long tribute to “Wanderlust.” While the term generally implies canvassing the globe and visiting new lands, we here at the BSP also want to pay homage to the most comfortable destination there is: home. One of the best parts of vacationing is returning home to the familiar, the known. The desire to see the world is inherently tethered to the idea of a home base to keep you from getting lost. It’s always good to know where you came from so that you know where you’re going (and why.) To kick off August’s “Wanderlust” theme, we wanted to start where you heart is.

Caroline Colom Vasquez and Jose Vasquez-Corbalan are the duo behind Paloma’s Nest, the quintessential brand for quality, handcrafted heirlooms. These are the types of pieces that you hold onto, pass down through the generations. Every piece is gorgeously crafted with natural materials and filled with love and joy and the gentle reminders that our lives are worth the journey. The Home Tiny Text Bowl is the perfect place to catch your keys once you get through the door. Or how about hanging a custom Map Ornament above your bed so you can dream far and wide and always remember where you are. While many search the world for treasures, we think you deserve to find some in your own home. We think Paloma’s Nest is the perfect start to a beautiful journey.

Paloma’s Nest is giving away one Peace to All Who Enter Here hanging signto one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Wednesday, August 8th. Comments now closed…good luck!

    I love my porch which is really a room outside my house, but it’s still my favorite. During the summer its a shady spot to sit and be “outside” weven when it’s too hot to actually do much out there. In the Fall, it’s a great place to sit with a warm cup of hot chocolate and admire the changing leaves. We sit and visit there after work and waive to the neighbors as they are going about their after work activities. Porches are awesome.

    My bedroom. I used to travel 45 weeks a year in a previous position. Being able to snuggle into my own bed each night next to my husband is irreplaceable. I love snuggling up with him each night (even if he does say it’s like laying next to a space heater) and waking up each morning with the sunshine streaming in and the puppies cuddling up for morning scratches. It just can’t be replaced!

    Oh wow, you have no idea what a hard question that is!  We’ve literally rebuilt our house– every room is just the way I want it {well, mostly}…I’d have to go with our living room, because its where everything from craft projects to homework to movie night happens!

    My favorite room in my house is my bedroom. I like to sit on my comfy bed, light some candles, and read a nice book. There’s lots of windows, so I always have natural light, and that gives my room a gentle glow. The candles make my room smell amazing as well. Tis my sanctuary!

    after many years in an apartment with a bedroom that overlooked a parking area, my favorite room in my new house is the quiet, cool, dark bedroom. we’ve painted it a soft lavender, added luxurious drapes and bought a cozy new bed and we finally have a sanctuary from the outside. it’s awesome.

    We just rented a place with floor to ceiling windows in the master bedroom. I’ve never seen anything like it. The natural light is incredible. Great for taking pictures, waking up early and saving electricity. The only drawback? The room also has floor to ceiling mirrors, and I’m positive our neighbors can see us showering if they look. Maybe that’s why they haven’t looked us in the eye yet : )

    I LOVE Paloma’s Nest. I discovered her site a few years ago and have been a fan since. My favourite room in the house would right now be the bathroom. There, I can escape the traffic, the constant demands of people in the house and Tantrums of the Toddler. I often take a notebook and pen to the loo and I sit on an old wooden chair journalling or doodling under my head clears and I can face the outside world again 🙂

    My room. I’m not a very peaceful person… black and pink and rainbows etc make me smile… But for some reason every ‘arty’ thing I’ve brought into my room is very peaceful- floral, gentle colours… I think my subconscious has been creating exactly what I needed. 

    I’m a single mum so this room is totally my retreat!!

    The Kitchen!! It combines my two favorite things, social gatherings and food!

    Hee, we’re in the midst of renovating our home very slowly, and the only “finished” room is our gorgeous upstairs bathroom (we even put a custom panel of stained glass in the door) and I do love it completely. However, even though it needs a lot of improvements, my favorite room is still the kitchen. I didn’t think I liked cooking while growing up, but when I first met my husband, we would spend evenings together cooking and chatting. Now I really love to tackle a new recipe and provide a meal. I even love scrubbing down the counters on a Saturday morning and watching things sparkle in the sunlight. We plan to make it even more comfortable when we redo the room, add lots of lovely seating and make it a place where people can gather and settle, but even at this point, it’s still my favorite. I just love the feeling of making something wonderful and nourishing with my hands for our small family.

    I just this summer made an outside “room” on my patio..there is comfy round chaise lounge, with squishy pillows, and a soft blanket for night..a fountain, and beautiful flowers that smell so sweet…It is my new favorite room!!!

    Amy Grace says:

    My bedroom, why? because so much of my dreaming, hoping, and wishing happens in there as well as discussing and gossiping with my best friends in person or on the phone. I plan, study, and focus in my bedroom. Its the place where I relax the most and where I reconnect to myself.

    Tracy says:

    My bedroom. I recently painted it a deep orchid color, against everyone’s advice, and I absolutely LOVE it. It looks GREAT with my white bedding and white painted wood floor. And it makes me feel BOLD.

    HNR says:

    The kitchen! It’s filled with fresh produce and interesting spices and represents endless possibilities to create tasty dishes and memories. I have so much fun cooking with my boyfriend, pickling with my friends, and cooking food that reminds me of my parents’ home and my travels!

    Jessica says:

    The living room/dinning room area. It’s hosted so many friends over the years and is filled with such great memories of good times and good food.

    I love my kitchen. It isn’t anything special, but It’s where we all seem to gather all the time, around drinks and food and the big island.

    Linnea says:

    The dining room. It is where we gather to start and finish our day. I love conversations with my significant other at the dining room table-lots of dreaming, wishing, and planning goes on there. Plus, there is a spectacular view of our gardens through the sliding glass door!

    Andi says:

    I love my sons room. It’s not über-stylish and it’s rarely clean and tidy. However, it is colorful, creative and full of love. Hard to remember your worries when you’re (literally) knee deep in dinosaurs, Legos, and art supplies! Especially when there’s a quilt fort involved.

    Theresa says:

    My living room! My book shelves are there, it has a fireplace (rare in Miami where I am) and all my daughters wooden toys are in here, so she can play while I read/knit/craft!

    My bedroom – we live in a tiny two bedroom/one bath and have two kids, so it’s difficult to keep the chaos to a minimum. But we’ve made an effort to keep our bedroom calm and uncluttered so there is some place to have peace in the house, and wow, do I love it.

    Rosy says:

    It’s hard to say. I love my sitting-room because it is the place were my friends and I chat and watch movies. I love my kitchen because it gives me the opportunity to create. I love my bathroom because its aqua walls remind me of the sea. But I love my bedroom most, because it’s a shelter when I feel sad, where I can cry, where I write mails to my friends, where I use to read (love reading in bed!), where I sometimes have breakfast on summer days and where I make love with my husband 🙂
