Cocoon 1…

Now here’s a cool new product!  Cocoon 1 is a very special place of retreat.  ”The innovative product magically connects aesthetics and function. Its insularity provides protection and seclusion. At the same time, its translucency enables us to let our thoughts wander whilst simultaneously allowing us to join in with life “outside” See more here.

Pillow Love…

No one can ever have to many pillows.  It’s the easiest way to freshen up a space!  I love the soft colors used in these Fred Shand pillows which are available at Anthropologie.  Also the tiny coral cross-stitches and printed and appliqué plumes are pretty awesome.

Avril Loreti Collection…

I am a firm believer in collaborating.  I always say that two heads are smarter and wiser than one independent head.  Lia Fagen of Mod Pieces recently collaborated with textile designer Avril Loreti to create a limited edition collection of lamp shades.  The two met at the Toronto One of a Kind Show.  Lia was drawn to Avril’s angular patterns & [...]

This is a look worthy for fall time.  Black and gold look fantastic paired with red and grey.  Of course I always say produce a room like this against a white backdrop.  The colors can pop that much more!

Sunday Inspiration {Kitchen Love}…

This industrial kitchen feels warm, probably due to the pretty rug and fantastic light fixture.  I’m a huge fan of metal and wood mixed so this space would fit nicely in my imaginary dream home.

It’s always exciting when you find new pillow designs.  It seems like pillows are the most wanted accessory when re-doing a space. These pillows from Stone Textile are graphic and super pretty.  Happy pillow shopping!!

Inspiration {Modern Traditional}…

I’ve been working with a client online who really likes mid century/modern/scandinavian but doesn’t feel like it fits her lifestyle.  She also doesn’t want to buy all new furniture and accessories.  She loves modern so we have decided to go with a mature modern aesthetic mixing traditional elements.  When I first saw this home on [...]

Inspiration {Living Space}…

When asking my husband what he loved most about this space he said the following:  ”It’s light, it’s inspirational, it makes me want to buy a journal and drink tea.” Thanks for the review, babe.  Keep at it! Image via Real Living Magazine.
