~ Beach Vintage at Night ~




You know that time of the day. It only lasts about 15 minutes. It is the time when the suns last rays push through your back windows. It's almost dark yet the sun wants one last say. Last week as the sun set I looked around my home and realised that I have not published many photo's of my home at night. I thought it about time to share some. Don't you love how the light changes the mood at this time of day? Take a moment to look around your place tonight and appreciate this, as most of us don't take a second glance.

  7. It is a lovely time of day Simone...and if there aren't children to feed, bathe, homework etc...it evokes tranquility and 'home'.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

  10. I love this time of day too and I noticed that the fine layer of dust I haven't got around to dusting just disappears in this light!! Of course it reappears with gusto in the dawn light(LOL).

  19. Ah yes, that's my favorite time of day. I especially love it if I'm on the beach and almost everybody else has gone home. The light is beautiful and there's just enough warmth to make your body feel the glow. Perfect, perfect.

  23. Hi Simone, I love those photos of your house at night. Did you know that's called 'Blue Hour"? I'm not sure how to calculate when it falls but I can give you some help to find out if you like.

  28. Simone, these are just such serene images. I love your house. I'm glad to be able to take a better look. The lamps add such great light. I'm wanting that blue chair we can see the back of and the kitchen cabinet in the background. So sad to hear you sold your adorable caravan too. I hope it went to a good home!! I'm back now and great to catch-up on everyone's blogs. Pruxxx

  53. Yes, what the French refer to as 'Le Bleu'... The 'Blue Hour'... that time of day between the last rays of the sun and the darkness. I love that light. A person wants to grasp and hold onto each fleeting moment. Rather like time spent with a loved one, don't you think?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh gorgeous Simone! So tranquil, I can only hope when my house is finished I get the same feeling your home looks. :))
