The warmer weather has arrived and it’s making me want to spend every sun-filled moment outdoors! The last thing on our ‘build our own house‘ project is the landscaping and deck. Oh! How I long for our deck to be completed! I dream of having barbeques, afternoon naps, late night talks surrounded by candlelight…. But until then, I wanted to share some beautiful black and white design inspiration! View Post
Scandinavian Christmas decor screams minimalism and whispers warmth and light. I am always drawn to Scandinavian spaces and love the way they are decorated for Christmas. I chose a variety of ‘looks’, but all have a similar theme. The beauty is in the simplicity, a colour-based theme, lots of light, and very nature-inspired.
Traditionally, a Scandinavian Christmas will be very white and red, with wood tones and rich, natural greens. When a natural tree is chosen, decorations seem to be sparse and thoughtful, or filled with vintage and colourful ornaments. Handcrafted ornaments, made of felt and wool, combined with candles, wood, and sparkly snowflakes fill these trees with warmth – but it’s never too much, just enough.
Many paper decorations are found in Scandinavian Christmas decor as well, with cut-outs of stars, trees, and simple dots used as decorations throughout the house. Branches of trees, bare or with evergreen needles, can easily decorate a simple nook, a bathroom, or a tabletop. A (faux) fur throws add a touch of luxury with a natural feel to a Scandinavian Christmas look. View Post
There’s something about a hammock that just screams relaxation to me. I’ve never been a napper, but the handful of times I’ve had the opportunity to lay in a hammock, I’ve always fallen asleep. While an outdoor hammock is fabulous, an indoor hammock can add a bit of bohemian whimsy or luxe quirkiness to a space. View Post

I love a neutral palette, but basic black and white contrast really makes a room pop. These black and white rooms for kids are void of traditional colour, but still full of life and quirky fun! View Post
I have long lusted over the beautiful canal-inspired Amsterdam collection from Kast van een Huis. Based on the 17th-century architecture of classic canal houses found in Amsterdam, these cabinets are a modern and stylish way to add storage and charm to a child’s bedroom. View Post
