Posted on 09/29/14 in homelife, No Comments

I find that come the warmer, longer days my energy levels slow down…some days to a grinding halt! It is common knowledge that I am a lover of gray days – cloudy skies and a cool breeze make my heart sing. In preparation for the warmer months I like to not only invest time in […]

A RETURN TO FLORAL…

Posted on 09/08/14 in homelife, No Comments

I am a Cath Kidston girl through and through…Floral ALL the way! So, it has been refreshing to see floral take centre stage, in both fashion and decor once again. (Well, for some of us they’ve always been in the spotlight!) I love how new twists are placed on old favourites within the design world. Bold […]

WEAVING IN THE GOOD STUFF…

Good Monday morning! As I sat and did my daily reading this morning, zoning out from all my commitments for a couple of minutes, I felt restored after a somewhat full weekend. I must confess to feeling a little overwhelmed as we step into spring today. The year seems to be racing along and I […]

CHOOSING YOUR FIRST PIECE OF ART…

Posted on 08/16/14 in homelife, No Comments

Great artwork changes the vibe in a room. We started investing in artwork a couple of years back and I can’t express how much we enjoy each piece. It is quite remarkable how new artwork blends seamlessly with the existing creating a body of works that we truly enjoy. Before we made that first investment […]

Question: – What do you do with a rug you love that no longer works with your floor plan? Answer: – Get creative and transition it into a new object of enjoyment! Yes, this was a very real dilemma for us when we moved 6 months ago. We had purchased a beautiful playful rug for […]

THE ART OF ADDING COMFORT…

Posted on 07/30/14 in homelife, No Comments

The easiest way, and certainly the least expensive, to add a new dimension to a room is with soft furnishings. Soft furnishings (SF) can soften hard surfaces and make a room warmer. (During these cooler months adding these extra layers will also assist in removing any draught!) Even if you’re renting you can still add […]

A cluster of roses brings elegance to a table top, while an overflowing cascade of fine fern, mixed with peonies says eclectic. Before you race out and invest […]
