Oh, How I Love it!

I'm obsessed. There, I said it. The latest edition of Style at Home Magazine did a Christmas spread with the co-owner of one of my all time favourite stores - The Cross in Vancouver, BC. Her home, the styling, the photos and those adorable children...so beautiful! I love all the soft colours and gold with a splash of vintage mixed in. My favourite tip for Christmas, from this, is the fairy lights she has displayed around the mirror, so precious.

The Cross always has amazing styling and love all the little touches added to this home.  Enjoy!

Whistler Inspiration!

I have a sticker on my car that says "Whistler is my Happy Place." I know, I'm a nerd like that, but it's true. I have been going to Whistler, BC since I was a kid and with just a 2 hour drive from home it's one of our family's favourite little get-aways.

I'm excited to be working on a little project at my 'happy place.' The condo is a great open space but a wee bit old school in some of the finishings. So far we have painted, new counter tops, new sinks, appliances and kitchen knobs. What a difference (before and after shots to come). We are working on a budget and it's amazing what you can do with a little inspiration from the local Home Depot.

Next, we're moving on to the fun part - the furniture! Here are few shots for inspiration. We are thinking neutrals and lots of texture and maybe even a little 'woodsy' wallpaper thrown in there for fun. I thought these pics are nice to share as this time of year we can all add a nice throw or new pillows to make our home a little more cozy/cabin feel. Enjoy!

A Stunning Space!

When thinking of some of my favourite spaces, this condo featured in Style at Home always comes to mind. So girly, so soft, romantic, glamorous and so white! I love this space and maybe one day when my girls are a little older I can channel this style of decor. For right now I'll just swoon. Enjoy...

Oh, that chandelier!

The floors, that painting...

White, cream and grey...sigh

Love the wallpaper 

Now, that's romance!
