decor vs. fashion: polka dot pillow or shirt?

What’s black and white and printed all over? You guessed it–a beautiful polka dot throw pillow from Society 6 and a sheer blouse from Forever 21. As spring slowly gives way to summer, both of these stylish monochromatic pieces are essential to your home decor and wardrobe. The only catch? You won’t be able to take your eyes off of either accessory.

win a scotch-brite prize pack

art gallery

With the summer season right around the corner,(cross your fingers) I have been craving bright, cheerful colour in my surroundings. I have always been fond of gallery style white walls decorated in colourful artwork. At the moment I think there is a draw towards pieces that are casual and uncomplicated, the juxtaposition of high end art, accompanied by something created in arts & crafts has become a growing trend… I love it.
