Raw wood tables + dining on the beach

6.27.2014


I'm a big fan of eating outdoors. Add a raw wood table and I'm smitten. Add a raw wood table + the beach and I will never leave.


I can just imagine the lanterns lit as night descends with the palm trees swaying in the background. My kind of Heaven!

For more raw tables see post on my website

A Renovated Schoolhouse

6.26.2014


Leanne and Brad Shaffer went looking for a home and ended up with a schoolhouse dating from 1907. The transformation is remarkable but not surprising given that Leanne and Brad are the duo behind the creative agency Acres Goods + Services. Check out the before and afters below. 



I just love all the white combined with the wood island, baskets and industrial pendants.

Prefab Contemporary Office

6.24.2014


This practical and gorgeous prefabricated contemporary office from KitHAUS was designed by Tom Sandonato and Martin Wehmann.

The KitHAUS K3 is a fully insulated, pre-wired glass and metal structure that is easy to install in your backyard. Also offered fully furnished for an instant office or guest room, the decking extends from the inside out to further expand the living space. You can also add more modules to create more living space without having to add onto your house. Hmmm, I'm thinking Yoga/Meditation space......

Beaded Birkenstocks

6.20.2014

My friend Susan has a great sense of style so when she showed up at work today with these AWESOME beaded Birkenstocks I couldn't help but take a picture. I used to think these Birkenstocks were a step up from the regular ones but Susan's take them to a whole new level!

Plywood scraps to beautiful modern furniture

6.18.2014


Re-cycle and up-cycle. Two words that I love and the folks over at rePly have taken those words to heart with their latest furniture collection. Using recycled plywood scraps, each piece is hand crafted and unique. Check them out.

Love this kitchen!

6.16.2014

I looooove this kitchen!! The white combined with the wood on the island is unexpected and really makes you stand up and take notice. The painted brick, artwork, pendant lights and dipped stools add the final touches that make this kitchen Rock!

Happy Friday and Have a great weekend!

6.13.2014


I have been enjoying some time off and it was wonderful to sit outside and enjoy the sun. Feels like it's been forever since I could sit on my back balcony and just watch the tree branches dancing in the wind, their leaves lulling me into peacefulness with their whispers. 

I love impromptu picnics and here's hoping that the weather is good and that the photo above will become my reality. I know just the weeping willow that I can sit under....

Some interesting tidbits from around the web:

Don't these roast potatoes with coriander yogurt look yummie. 
Have you seen this wedding picture? Talk about a day to remember!
How about this drink to ease the summer heat. 
If you live in Montreal and like beer you won't want to miss the annual beer festival
If you thought that Lululemon was only for women guess again. Turns out they are dressing some pretty hot men. 

Have a great weekend!

DIY: Chalkboard Bottles

6.12.2014


I love easy DIY's and this one certainly qualifies. All you need is a bottle and some spray on chalkboard paint and you're done. I would recommend using Krylon chalkboard paint as I have had good results with this brand (this is not a sponsored post but simply my own observation).


How to:

Choose a bottle.
Remove the label from the bottle using hot water (if there is one).
Dry the bottle and make sure it is completely dry before spray painting.
Spray the chalkboard paint onto the bottle following the directions on the can.
Let dry 24 hours.
Use chalk to draw or write what you like on the bottle.

Black & White Kitchen

What a great place to put a window and the mirrored back splash really adds light and expansion to the the otherwise compact space. Imagine how beautiful those candles will look at night once lit. Their reflections bouncing off the mirror will just be magical!
