hardwood flooring: the final results

If you remember, back in the summer I was working on getting my mom settled in her new condo. After my father passed away, we sold our family home and found a more manageable place for my mom to live. The whole process came with challenges, both emotional and logistical. But amidst all this, my unwavering goal was to help my mom create a space that felt comfortable and as much like home as possible as she took her first steps on this new journey of her life.

It’s amazing how much that sense of home was created through the details. Of course it’s the family that makes a house a home but in my mom’s new condo, so much of what makes it a beautiful place for her came in the form of our design choices. We tried to strike a balance between incorporating things that were reminiscent of the home she shared with my dad her whole life and adding new things that would in some ways help to guide her along a new path.

pretty 2012 agendas

A new year means 365 days of new possibilities!

I’ve always been an agenda girl and I take my time finding the perfect planner. Some of my preferences in design change year to year. Like the changing Pantone colour of the year, I’ll go from loving red, to purple, to grey, to good old black and white. Then there are the endless patterns! From vibrant polka dots to bold giraffe prints, here are five agendas that have caught my eye for 2012.
