Project 62 at Target

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’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. I can’t decide the look that I’m going for, so for now – I’m just obsessing over all of the above.Here are some I’ve also been pinning on Pinterest

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…

roundup of the best pillows on etsy

the best pillows found on etsy

After yesterday’s post lacking of colour and dismal pre-spring garden shots (and a rotting deck!) I needed to throw some colour at you. I have a few decorating projects in the works and at the top of my list is always pillows. My style is always white, bright and open and airy rooms with crazy hits of colour thrown at you in pillows. Pillows are the BEST way to add some style to a room at a really reasonable cost. Some pillows aren’t inexpensive – decorative ones (like this one that is my FAVOURITE EVER in my house) are the cost of a good gallon of paint. But it’s more powerful than paint. Because it’s so stylish and let’s face it. Throwing a designer pillow on your couch is also WAY EASIER than throwing a gallon of paint on your wall. So when  friends ask me to help makeover a room, I always gravitate to neutral couches and such – but tell them to have some fun with the pillows. One thing I have been guilty of is buying too small of a pillow for rooms. So consider 20″ and bigger for couches, because the small ones just (in my opinion)end up being tossed on the floor. But BIG pillows (especially down filled ones) you end up sinking into, and enjoying as you relax.

Although I adore places like Tonic Living and finding my own fabrics to make into pillows, Etsy is still a huge draw for me because you have such a huge assortment of fabrics and you can see them done up usually before buying. Click here to see my favourite pillows (which include all of the ones I’ve shown here!) by popping over to my Etsy Pillow Collection board. And you may see some of the ones here, in upcoming design projects!
