Colorful Living

12.29.2012



So much snow has fallen in Montreal over the last few days - 50 cm and counting (yes you read right that is 20 inches of snow-ugh!) - that everywhere you look you see white. Kind of pretty at first but incredibly boring and cold long term so I'm warming myself up by posting some color. I hope that you find the pinks and purples as cheerful as I do! xxx Tracey

Eco Friendly Christmas Tree

12.22.2012

If you are environment conscious and don't want to buy a real Christmas tree then how about making one out of scrap wood. I found this one on-line and I think that the addition of the all white ornaments makes it really special.  However, adding some red ornaments would really make it pop!

White and Blue Dining Room

12.21.2012

This is exactly what I would've liked for my dining room. I love the mix of contemporary with traditional or classic. Even though it can be hard to do, this photo shows you how simple it really can be. The chandelier, scallop bowl and traditional material add just enough traditional to the contemporary mix. Everything looks great together and the traditional elements soften the hard lines of the contemporary table. Although I'm not a big fan of blue in décor I find that the blue here adds a serenity to the room that would be hard to imitate with any other color.

Dining Room Love

I'm totally drooling over this dining room table. I just love wood in it's natural, unrefined state and this table certainly makes a statement in this contemporary decor.

Shabby Chic Christmas

Vintage French Sled with Lili posing for us.

Vintage grain sack Advent Calendar
French zinc wash bucket
Antique tin ceiling tile turned into a frame
Vintage enamelware filled with flax seeds and candles
There are so many great ideas here I don't know where to begin. These photos are all from a website called Dreamy Whites which specializes in French Farmhouse décor. Lately I have found myself falling slowly in love with this type of look. I have tinkered with the idea of adding some elements of French Country into my own home but have never really been able to visualize it until now. I think 2013 will be a time for some change!

All that Glitters is Gold

I'm in the mood for something sparkly and this giant sequin wall certainly fits the bill. What a great way of attracting attention and customers. I also love the soft pink walls and accessories paired with the gold. Absolutely beautiful!

Creative Designing

12.14.2012


Here are two photos that I found which I really feel exemplify creative designing. Of course each persons idea of creative designing will be different than mine but my version is one that takes a bit of a risk. Like putting a giant picture such as the one above in the dining room or having a chalk board wall accessorized with a crystal chandelier and electric guitar in your bedroom. It's designing with spunk and I love it!! What do you think about this, too much or just right?

Seeing Double

I think symmetry is great in a room, it adds a sense of balance to the decor. Having identical cats however, might be taking it a bit too far though! I couldn't resist posting this, I thought it was so cute!

Dining Room Love

12.12.2012

I'm still stuck on the black and grey bandwagon. There's just something about it that is calling me right now. I have also always wanted a big round table in my dining room but alas I keep getting houses with rectangular rooms.  So for now, I am living vicariously through my one of my clients....

Eco Christmas

12.11.2012



I love the advent calendar - what a great idea - especially for someone like me who has a sweet tooth! The candles offer a message of love while illuminating your rooms and the newspaper wrapping paper is so pretty when tied with candy cane colored twine and monogrammed tags. Very chic!

French Country Kitchen

12.10.2012

Isn't this kitchen/dining room combo beautiful. Wicker baskets, miniature topiaries and a rustic sideboard definitely give this room a French Country feel. And I absolutely love those pendant lights and that awesome clock!

Click and Grow Basil

12.08.2012

Now THIS is a great idea! I love adding basil to many of my dishes but it never seems to survive in my kitchen for longer than a couple of weeks. In comes the Click & Grow starter kit which includes the electronic smartpot complete with basil seed plant cartridge, water and fertilizing system, and software that measures and provides exactly what your little plant needs at all times. Your job is to install the batteries, fill the tank up with water and place in a sunny location and Presto - instant Basil! What a great invention!
