Sooooo…..I’m not a huge fan of the overdone Christmas planters. Main reason – they break my bank account. So this year I opted for the simple way of filling my planters. I went to Home Depot, bought two trees on stands and….
BAM. Done. Simple planter decorating for the Mom’s who can barely get groceries into the fridge, let alone a beautiful decorated planter.
I’m dying. D-Y-I-N-G. Target has launched a line called Project 62 and it’s glorious. Drop dead gorgeous / glorious / fantastic. I don’t even know why I tease myself going onto their site, to see what I can’t have. It’s torture.
I’m seriously considering a drive down to the US or just having it shipped to me via Cross Border Pickups. I’m obsessed with these in particular….
I happened upon a sale at Pottery Barn, and lamp I had been coveting – the Jayce Lamp, was down to $125 from $180. So last night I bit the bullet and purchased two, and I’m hoping they will work in our bedroom. I’ve always been a fan of marble bases to lamps and the fact that this was under $150 a piece (with the shades) was a bit of a steal. Not only that, the light itself is relatively small in comparison to other similar style lights, which is what I need for our bedroom. So price wise, it’s a fit and, aesthetically.

I’m obsessing over side table lighting right now. Here is a roundup of some of my favourites which touch on almost every look – from mid century to beachy.

The latest obsession I have is with dining chairs. It goes in waves what I start to research day and night. Right now it’s dining chairs. It started with the studio. Hunting for the right table to have in there, and, what chairs to put around the time. But then a bunch of meetings needed to happen and we neede chairs out there someway immediately – and so we temporarily moved the dining chairs out from our dining room and into the outdoor studio. We can’t move them back and forth all the time, so it means one room – either the dining room, or studio, need new chairs. Continue Reading →
We’ve been searching for an ottoman / coffee table for our TV room forever after I got rid of our last coffee table in a fit of anger because I hated it so. (It was way too big for the space, and was driving me nuts) Aubrey, in a similar fit of frustration (because he missed having somewhere to rest his feet while watching TV) bought an Ikea Lack coffee table for $35. He assured me it was temporary. Although size wise it was perfect – I’ll give it that, design wise it was killing me. It was like a black hole sucking any joy out of the room. I know, I’m being dramatic. But really. It wasn’t the look I was going for, but I understood the need for compromise. Continue Reading →
