Whistler decor!

My family and I have been spending much of our summer in Whistler, B.C. It's a fantastic spot for a family with tons of outdoor activities, lakes and kiddo stuff - not to mention some great restaurants for us parents! While here I have been working on a design board for a Whistler condo. It's been fun as the needs of this place are of course style but it also needs to be comfortable and functional. I usually like colour but we are going more neutral on this space to match the rest of the condo. I'm also trying to incorporate some fantastic mid-century modern chairs I found last year and have them prettied up a bit! They will be used for a reading/coffee nook in the corner. Here is the rest of the room. Just a start at this point but excited about continuing to plug away at it. Enjoy...

Cute Idea!

A love a simple, cute idea. The problem is too many ideas and not enough execution of them though. I've decided that let's just face the facts that summer will be a write-off in getting things done. We are finally getting some nice weather and I want to have fun! My daughter was running through the sprinkler in her underwear last night - a true sign that summer is here!

Okay, back to the cute idea. Love these little book shelves for a kids room. And best of all, the way to get this look is so simple. Ikea sells wood spice racks about this size, just give them a little paint and viola - you have a perfectly sweet little shelf that costs less than 5 bucks! Enjoy...
