I’ve been seeing a bunch of mini trends this year – including feathers! Check out these great peacock feather wallpapers. Love the colours! One a subdued turquoise and gold, while the other a bolder look with a striking mix of blue hues. Can you guess which is high and which is low?

Decorating with black and white is about as modern as you can get. If you’re thinking of updating your living room, a classic monochromatic loveseat can give you the refined, minimalist look you’ve been dreaming of.

Thanks to dropping temperatures and a desire to stay indoors more, we tend to (as studies have said) eat more during winter. Some say a drop in temperature results in an increase in appetite for the simple fact that it keeps us warm. Others say the lack of sunlight leads to seasonal depression, which is countered by eating. Either way, we experience cravings and seek delicious comfort food.
In light of this, I’ve come to realize there are a few key kitchen tools I need while we weather the winter blues.
