You can only imagine how thrilled I was to see this gorgeous hardcover version (and how beautiful it will look styled on my bookshelf)!

I know, I know…this isn’t really ‘design related’. BUT I love board games and when I was sent a press release about ‘The Game of Things’ I just had to share. This game isn’t new, it’s celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year actually, but it’s a blast! For anyone who hasn’t ever played, I recommend you try it out – it’s pretty much guaranteed to make you laugh. Perfect for those upcoming holiday parties or for fall weekends when your family just wants to bundle up and stay inside with a cup of tea.

It’s getting to be that time of year again…the holidays. Which means presents. Which means wrapping! Last year, the Design Team created 4 different styles of DIY wrapping.

It was a ton of fun and not that hard to do (I promise). These would be great crafts to do with kids! Read on to learn more about the steps and to see some progress shots from the shoot!
Most recently, we’ve noticed some very specific posts seem to be getting all the attention (and likes). Is it beautiful bedrooms? Delicious desserts? Festive tabletop decor? Nope, it’s laundry rooms! If you liked the galley-style laundry room recently posted to our Instagram account, we thought we would share some more stylish laundry room designs you’re sure to love.

Did you know? It’s National Coffee Day today – and while I’m a self-professed tea lover, I know that many (most?) of you, swear by your cup o’ joe. And it seems you’re not alone. Canadians LOVE their coffee (they drank more than 1.6 billion cups* of brewed coffee last year!) and Starbucks highlights this in an infographic they put out just for this special occasion!
