Mood Board | Masculine Neutral Living Room

Look, it’s a blogger mood board! Kilim pillow: check ✔Plenty of plants: check ✔Something mid-century: check ✔White walls: check ✔ I have to admit, I’m very much into the look at the heart of The White Wall Controversy, and I’ve been dying to use those chairs in a mood board for months. So here you go. #sorrynotsorry The overall look leans masculine, with a neutral colour palette and clean lines. But layers of texture and prints in varying scales keeps… View Post

ORC Week 1: Shared Kids’ Room Plans

I am a first time linking participant in this round of the One Room Challenge. If you’re not familiar, it’s a biannual event hosted by Calling It Home, where design bloggers make over a space in six weeks, sharing weekly updates.

It’s very exciting to be settled enough now to be able to join in!… View Post

Mood Board: A Mid-Century Office

Mood Board: A Mid-Century Office

I just recently discovered The HighBoy, which is a curated marketplace for antiques and fine art. There is so much good stuff on the site. I picked out a few pieces to put together an office space. I went mainly mid-century for this design, but the range is huge.  1. Pendant // This Art Deco piece isn’t mid-century, but it fits thanks to the beautiful navy detailing on the painted glass. 2. ‘Open Space in Jerusalem’ by Eve Menes // This gorgeous watercolor on… View Post

Get the Look | Sketch London

Sketch has been on my list of places to check out for afternoon tea for a long time. I mean, look at this place: A lot of the elements could work in a residential space too. The artwork at Sketch is by David Shrigley, who I love. His prints aren’t insanely expensive, but you could also opt for a similar (less humourous) aesthetic with black and white sketched prints from Etsy.

Small Space Solutions: How to Make Over-Night Guests Feel At Home

This year was one of the first we haven’t hosted overnight guests for Christmas, but it got me thinking about how we’d do it in this house if we wanted to in the future.

So, with a focus on small space solutions, here’s a little guide to essentials that will make your guests feel at home, even if… View Post

Mood Board: Dining and Living Room Design Plans

So we have a deal. J is allowed to buy some fancy (yet, in my humble opinion, unnecessary) computer thing and I am allowed my equally fancy (yet also not entirely necessary) Chesterfield! Woot! I’m not sure he really understands what he’s agreed to, but I’m going with it, and quick, before he changes his mind. In light of that, I’ve nailed down my dining and living room design plans for the new house. It’s long and narrow – similar to our… View Post
