Red, Orange, Tan and Purple

Oct 29, 2011

Good evening!

I was finding some photos for another post I was planning, when I came across this work below. I learned about Mark Rothko in art history class and I loved the way he dealt with colour. His work was all about the relationships between the colours and the emotions they elicit.

Red, Orange, Tan and Purple by Mark Rothko

Just wanted to share a little colour inspiration from art history :)

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!!

Friday Favourites: Second Edition

Oct 28, 2011

Good evening!

Just wanted to share a few of my favourite things this week :)

I discovered Tobias Tovera through Pinterest this week, and I just think his work is so stunning! I love the layered look of the blues & greens in this one.

Hydra II by Tobias Tovera

And my three favourite posts from around blogworld this week!

Christine discovered & shared Saatchi Online. Go read her gorgeous post to find out more :)

I don't think I've ever seen a house decorated for Halloween quite like the Brooklyn Limestone home!

And Sarah discusses creativity, and realizing that we are all creatives.

I hope you've all had a lovely week!!

Currently Loving Vol. 4

Oct 27, 2011

Good evening!

I had this whole fun post planned about a piece of art I recently found, but I decided that can wait until tomorrow, because I'm feeling like another Currently Loving post :)

A beautiful workspace with a slightly French feel? All over it!


Pretty silver jewelry box, you must be mine.


And a mantra that I just love. So simple, yet so good.


So what are you currently loving??

Every Day

Oct 26, 2011

Good evening!

When you're stuck inside writing an essay, there doesn't seem like a lot of good going on. Or when it's Jan/Feb and the snow just keeps on coming with no end in sight, not a lot of good to be seen. I definitely need to remind myself of this more often.


So, today's good thing: I did really well on my midterm from a couple weeks ago! And when I went to pick it up my teacher asked about my nail polish and she was just too cute about it :) She grew up in a family of guys, so not a lot of beauty products there haha I love helping out people with beauty stuff :)

I hope something good happened today and that you're week is going well!

Shades of Grey

Oct 25, 2011

Good evening!

Just finished watching the two new episodes of Sarah's House! Really loved what they did in the entry hall with the grey/gold/orange-y colours. Anyone else?? And the grey kitchen was just lovely!

Speaking of grey, I'm making over some old lamps with some paint and new shades, both in shades of grey! A dark steely-metallic grey for the base, and a soft, almost-white grey for the shade. Or at least that's what I'm thinking at the moment. I've also been looking at beige-y shades.








I'm still trying to source the spray paint I want, Krylon's Looking Glass (can't find it here in Canada, but I have a friend going to the States soon so she's going to try and buy me some :D ), so I still have some time to find a shade. What would you put with a dark metallic grey base?

Hope you're having a great week!!

Little Gatherings

Oct 24, 2011

Good evening!

I've been spending part of the past two days styling my room a little. I finally had some help putting up a shelf (it needed some tools I didn't have) so I decided it was time to find a place for all the little goodies I've been collecting over the past few months :)

On that note, I've found some photos of little gatherings that are inspiring me as I work away!





Hope your week is off to a lovely start :)

Art Pour Moi, La Deuxième Partie

Oct 20, 2011

Good afternoon!

As I ponder the final piece of art to buy for my room, I thought I would share all the art that has been considered. I'm leaning to something Paris-y, with maybe a bit of pink in it. Soft pink though, not a bold pink. I think pink would look really good in the grey frame I have.

Silence & Noise by Leigh Viner
Paris is a Feeling by Irene Suchocki
Edinburgh Windows by Nina Moscrip
Chanel No. 5 by Christina Skrovanek
Windows of Paris by Jolly
The Suspension of Physics Necessary for All Athletic Endeavors by Colin Blakely
Live What You Love in Sweet Pink on MadeByGirl
Love Candy Gold on MadeByGirl

Any favourites? I know which one I'm leaning toward :)

Hope your week is going well!
