decor vs. fashion: black and white shower curtain or skirt?

News flash! We will never get tired of decorating with black and white! Case in point–we’ve added a monochromatic shower curtain from Bed, Bath & Beyond and a striped skirt from The Gap to our shopping lists this summer, if only for the classic and ultra modern home decor and fashion appeal each piece brings to the table.

You’ve saved up $50 for a summer upgrade. Which would you choose–the black and white shower curtain or skirt?

cottage fun: design inspirations

Chris and I rent our favourite cottage once a year to spend  time with close friends right by the water.  Hanging out by the deck, enjoying homemade mimosas, and of course gathering around the campfire with s’mores are all high on my ”To-Do“ list.  I would love to have my own cottage one day and have been collecting design ideas + inspirations for future references.  So I thought, why don’t I share with you some of my all time favourite cottages?

First up is this super stylish and chic private getaway for Dee Dee Taylor Eustace.  Being a professional interior designer and architect means Dee Dee knows how to push the boundaries to create the ultimate sanctuary of her dreams.  My favourite elements from Dee Dee’s cottage: the cedar shingles stained in navy blue (both interior and exterior), the eclectic mix of furniture pieces to give the space its character, and the classic yet cozy powder room.

primary colours

One of the first colour schemes we learn to love are blue, yellow, and red. With those three colours we are taught that by mixing one with the other we can create virtually any hue we dream up. Commonly we associate blue, yellow and red with toddlers, recently I have seen this famous combination used in more sophisticated, mature ways. Now these spaces are somewhere I could definitely “play, laugh, and grow” in! icon wink primary colours Primary Colours copy primary colours

nursery decor: cute cribs

There’s going to be a new addition to my family come September, and although there are lots of worries and concerns constantly running through my head as a first time mum-to-be, there’s no question about what sort of aesthetic I want to achieve in the nursery. I’m keeping the gender a surprise, so instead of incorporating a scheme of soft pinks or handsome blues, I’ll be going with a more neutral look. The most important piece in the room is the crib, of course, and I know I want something that’s white and very simple in design. There are so many options out there, so I thought I would share three favourites that I’ve come across.
