Obsessed with / Global Style

Untitled-2I’m tweaking the house a little bit and I’ve found myself gravitating towards well travelled looks, bohemian, and natural pieces. I’ve stumbled on some amazing pricing on some pieces, so you and I can get the “look for less”. I called this the “Global Style” but I’m not sure if that’s an accurate description for this roundup. Pretty much whatever the look is above, I’m obsessed.

If your budget allows, then some more designer pillows may be up your alley. I’m a big pillow hoarder and feel like pillows can instantly change a room, so am guilty of splurging on pillows like these…

Obsessed with / Moroccan Wedding Blankets

I’ve found myself obsessing over Moroccan Wedding blankets lately. The white (obviously) is a love but the layering of textures and the sparkle of the strips of trim have me swooning. There is something about the texture that is just divine. A quick search of Etsy brings up a plethora of sellers, selling from Morocco straight to your doorstep. Here are a few of my favourites that I have been saving for some time now… Continue Reading →

New roman blinds for the bedroom

img_3735 img_3702
We used to have white romans on our windows in our bedroom.
 They were purchased at Lowes when they came to Canada years ago, and were a steal. I can’t recall the exact price, but it was economical enough that when the backs of the blinds yellowed from the sun and made the white blinds white no more – I went back to Lowes and just bought the same set all over again.  However when the second pair discoloured from the sun I wasn’t able to find the same style in-store or, online anywhere. So windows have sat naked for years. (And, potentially why my neighbours may have seen ME naked for years) Continue Reading →

New Rug

IMG_9435

Do you recall my basement studio / family room reveal? It was pretty fun. But we’ve done a few mini changes since then! Originally we had a remnant stripe rug in our “family room” area of the basement and my cat barfed on it and ended up staining it. Thanks MakMak. Truthfully the remnant was more of a runner than an appropriate rug, and the lack of rug in this space was making it feel a little too cold and unwelcoming for my littlest. Who wants to do puzzles on a cold floor? Not us. Anyhow, I was initially craving something uber colourful and like these kilims I keep oogling over on Etsy and Ebay but alas, the fear of the purchase freaked me out (SO EXPENSIVE) and so it pretty much nixed that in the rear end. Also, since I stare at colours and colour matching in my office all day – I tend to keep the decor around me neutral. So, those rugs were out. Then I was on WayFair and saw that they carried Dash & Albert Rugs (I love them) which are indoor / outdoor (awesome for barfing cats + washing) and saw that the diamond pattern (one of my favourites) was sold online and had free shipping. As in, I didn’t have to go out, lug it into my car. Someone would drop it off for me. Side note, I’m getting into this whole “delivery” thing these days, which saves me valuable time. Like Grocery Gateway. Have you done it? Grocery shopping as you lie in bed, and shop on an app and you schedule when your groceries arrive? GENIUS. Anyhow. The free shipping won me over and it was also on sale. So there was that too. (It’s still on sale, I just checked!)

And here is MakMak. Staring at our new rug which she will likely barf on.
