Weekend Warmth

Sep 30, 2011

Good evening!

As the weather gets cooler and the warm sweaters come out, I love curling up with a cup of tea. Doesn't really matter what I'm doing - reading, watching TV, chatting with friends - just something about curling up with a blanket that's so lovely this time of year :)

Doesn't that look like an amazing place to curl up and relax??

Hope you all have a lovely relaxing weekend, whether it's warm or cold :)

Currently Loving Vol. 1

Sep 29, 2011

Good evening!

This is what today looked like outside:


If only it was as picturesque as the photo above.

This is what I currently love. I cannot wait to go home for thanksgiving. Family + Food + Five Day Weekend (yay to strange class times in uni haha) = FABULOUS. Can't wait!


And this is what I am currently lusting after.


Isn't it just gorgeous?? It's a Leigh Viner original that she's giving away(!) and I really kind of hope she offers a print version that I can snag if I don't win the giveaway. I just adore it! Leigh has some serious talent and I just love seeing the new work she comes out with!

Hope you are all having a lovely week :)

Magenta

Sep 28, 2011

Good evening!

I painted my nails in this gorgeous dark magenta-ish colour the other day and I love it!

(It's Essie's Big Spender if you're wondering!)

Just had to find some inspiration for it :)



Hope you're having a lovely week :)

Inspirations in White

Sep 27, 2011

Good evening!

Just wanted to share a few things that were inspiring me today :)


Adore this bedroom!! Makes me want to finish mine so I can finally say it's done and be proud of it!


I bought a fabulous cookie jar that looks just like this, except it's a cookie jar haha Perfect for a bit of storage :)

I want to live more like this. Maybe not everday, but most.

Hope your week is going well :)

Lovely Libraries

Sep 26, 2011

Good evening!

Being back in school means lots of reading. And not the good kind either.

Dreaming that my readings could be done in one of these rooms, simply divine!






Hope your week is off to a good start!

It Was All Yellow

Sep 25, 2011

Good afternoon!!

I was up north-ish yesterday and loved seeing the changing leaves as we drove along! Definitely one of the prettiest times of year here in Canada!

Thought I'd rustle up some pretty yellow inspiration for today :)

Letterpress Yellow Thank You Note
Yellow Aspen Trees
Bijou Baby Boots

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Take A Nap

Sep 24, 2011

Good evening!

I had this whole post planned for a fun recap of my week with photos from my phone. Bit of beauty, bit of fashion, and a random present from Poland. But then my phone's bluetooth decided not to work and I can't get them onto my computer. Grr.

So instead, a recap of my week on Pinterest! Because there's some pretty awesome stuff out there.

Is that not a gorgeous shot of Paris?? Does anyone know if it's a print somewhere? Or just a photo online? I would love to frame it!

via
I found this print at the Keep Calm Gallery. They call it the Rules of Friendship. I quite like this.

via
So true right?? Kids definitely say the darndest things sometimes haha

Hopefully next week I can get my phone working and have some photos to share :)

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Modern Global, Wood Tones & the New Neutrals

Sep 23, 2011

Good afternoon!

To wrap up this week's topic of Fall Trends, I thought I would share my take on Style at Home's three trends!

First up is wood. In every shade. It's warm, cozy, and gives so much texture to a space. Verdict: This trend is perfect for fall!



Next is the new neutrals. Sagey-greys, lilacs, and greige (grey/beige) are pretty huge right now. Verdict: Adore this trend!! New neutrals is definitely my favourite :)



Finally, we have modern global. I love the layered, eclectic feel of this trend, but it's just not something I would ever do in my own home. Verdict: Great for some, but it's not for me.




Overall, I think Style at Home got the top trends for fall spot on, even if they're not all my taste. Do you agree with these trends? Have any of them made their way into your home?

And happy first day of fall!!!

Block it Out

Sep 22, 2011

Good evening!

A big trend that's come and gone in recent years, and is currently back in is colour-blocking. I think this look is fabulous and is such a fun way to introduce bold colour into a space.




And if you're feeling a little more daring:



Love those cabinets. If you had guests over and they were looking for something you could just be like, "It's in the blue cabinet." That would be kinda awesome haha

Hope you're all having a great week!

Plaid & Patterns

Sep 21, 2011

Good evening!

Another trend that I love for fall and early winter is plaids. Now, there is definitely a limit on how much plaid is acceptable haha But I love a little sprinkle of it :) Makes a room feel warm & cozy & home-y.




And along with plaid, I love big patterns in the fall. Again, probably just the cozy-homey feel, but I can't help it :)




And a roaring fire. Just cause :)

Is there any trend that just screams 'fall' to you?

Camel

Sep 20, 2011

Good evening!

If you had asked me a couple years ago, I would have never picked camel as a good colour. But now I definitely appreciate it's neutrality & chicness. While it will never be a staple colour in my wardrobe, I adore it in homes. From flooring, to pillows, to lamps, it's a gorgeous neutral that works with everything.







And it is so perfect for fall.

Hope you're having a lovely week :)

Seeing Spots

Sep 19, 2011

Good morning!

Another trend I've seen in fashion & beauty this season is spots & dots!


Now you don't need to cover every surface in dots haha Because they're are tons of little ways you can incoporate these little spots :)






Definitely love this trend! It's so fun & preppy :)

Anyone incorporating spots & dots into their fall style?
