Powder Room Wallpaper

As my clients will tell you – I love wallpaper.  I simply cannot get enough and use it in nearly every project I work on.  The reason is simple – there are SO many amazing papers out nowadays, we’ve come lights years from the papers of the 70s.  Without investing a lot, you’re able to add interest, texture and colour to a space, which allows money to be invested in classic and timeless furniture pieces.  With advancements in designs and textures has come improved application – easing the fear of commitment and allowing you to go bold!

One of my favorite spaces to experiment and have fun in is the powder room.  As the saying goes: good things come in small packages, so why not use the paired down proportions of a powder room to express your bold side?

I’ve pulled some of my favorite looks for a powder room below.  Which is your favorite?

These four artists will have you feeling the sights, sounds and smells of the beach in no time, so much so you may not even feel the need to leave your land locked abode … maybe …

Summer Decor Finds

Warmer temps, longer days, lighter layers, can only mean one thing – summer is here! Is there anything better than the lazy days of summer, enjoying meals outdoors and if you’re lucky enough to be around water, spending the day in your swimsuit?  To make the most of what is sadly a very short season around these parts, I’ve pulled together some summer decor finds I’m loving.  From botanical inspired dinnerware to leaf print throws, you’ll be well on your way to celebrating the season in style.

Daybed Love

Hello dear friends!  I’m back!  After nearly three weeks away from blogging due to total chaos in my condo as I had it painted and then … a series of frustrating technically issues … I’m back in front of my computer writing and it feels so right and good!!  Can you sense my excitement?  Adding to my joy of having my space back to normal so I can write (well sort of, more on that in another post) is what I’m sharing today: My Daybed Love.  I simply cannot get enough!

And here’s why …

Backyard Rescue

An early spring here in the prairies means we’re all ecstatic and spending as much time outside as possible!  Many of us save getting our backyards, patios and gardens ready for summer until the May long weekend, but this year that will put us behind!  So I’ve pulled together some of my favorite ways to get the backyard ready for quiet mornings enjoying coffee and the paper to entertaining friends and family.

How to Style a Mantle

The cooler temps here in Calgary this week have made me turn the heat back on and think about lighting a fire!  A little part of me weeps as I write this, I really thought we had beaten the odds this year with a spring that was gorgeous and on time! But alas, this is Calgary and we know better.  So in honor of these cooler days, I thought I would share some of my favorite ways to style a mantle.

Mantles get a lot of attention during the winter months and holidays, but if you’re lucky enough to have a mantle in your space, they are a great place to add interest and decor all year around.

Bathroom Design Inspiration

Earlier this week I shared my newly discovered bath time routine, which naturally has me thinking all things bathrooms.  So I’ve pulled together some amazing bathroom design inspiration, that if like me you feel there is nothing more timeless and fresh than a white bathroom, these spaces may have you questioning yourself.

Decorating for Spring

Eeeep!  Spring is in the air!  Having lived in Calgary for the last 10 years I know better than to expect Spring’s arrival simply because the calendar says so, but I dare say this year we may actually experience spring on time!  I spied tiny little green buds breaking through on the trees in my neighborhood the other day, which can mean only one thing – it’s time to talk decorating for spring!

This is definitely one of my favorite times of year, I simply love the freshness, newness and lightness of the season – three things I like to bring into my decor at this time of year as well!

Patterned Tile

Patterned tile has been hot in interior design for the past few years, and isn’t showing any sign of letting up.

And honestly why would it when mosaic and patterned titles have been around for centuries and cement tiles have been used since 1850.  A time honored tradition of using metal molds to hand pour tiles before being pressed and pigmented is still used.  Creating gorgeous tiles, in which no two are alike.
