My Dream Home

Moving is on my mind...a lot! Even though the move has not happened, I dream of the decorating. I have also realized how much my style has changed when I notice what I gravitate towards now. Much more clean lines, modern and simple. I still like 'stuff' but I do have a goal to live with less of it and in a simpler way to enjoy my family.

One of my dream places was a the home of designer Nancy Riesco feautured in the June issue of House and Home magazine. Love all the natural light, the airy-ness and whimsy to this home. Now, realistically with house prices in Vancouver I might end up living in a shed somewhere but a girl can dream. Enjoy!

Master Bedroom Inspiration

Hello blog world...I'm back! While I've still been actively reading blogs I have ignored this little baby for a while. Truth be told with our house still for sale, working on a few exciting decorating projects and my 21 month old daughter literally sucking every ounce of energy out of me something had to give.

One of the projects I've been working on is a living room, dining room and master bedroom. The master bedroom is one of my favourites as it's always a room that gets left until the end but is so important! I did up a couple design boards for my client and I really like the direction we're going with landing on a mix of the two boards. I'm a huge fan of white bedding. You just can't go wrong. We tried to carefully do a combination of masculine and feminine elements in this room. Love to hear which one is your favourite?


One of my favourite elements of this room is the white cowhide rug. Love! 

This light fixture was the perfect hit of masculine for the room - perhaps to offset those feminine mirrored bedside tables :-)
