The Friday Five: A Gorgeous Paris Apartment

Would it be so wrong if I spoiled you with five photos from a gorgeous apartment in Paris? Nah, I didn’t think so.

If you’re in Paris and need a place to stay, you can rent out this beautiful space on AirBnB.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Dreaming of the big city

What’s up with all the urban interest on everything from posters to bedding?

Today’s set of sheets and duvet cover are made in India with a 250 thread count detailing a graphic architectural take on cityscape speckled with embroidered blocks of colour (not too much colour, mind you).

These are new to CB2, Crate & Barrel’s little sister retailer that I have yet to drop into. I keep hearing fabtastic things about this shop and I’m excited to check out the furniture, home décor and yes- the bedding!

Skyline bed linens, $49.95-189.95, at CB2


The Friday Five: Bedrooms

I never get tired of browsing through photos of peaceful white bedrooms. In my opinion today’s collection of five spaces are beautifully inviting. What do you think?

Painting

It’s been at least a year since I painted anything and this fact makes me a bit depressed as I used to paint quite often. But time has moved at lightning speed this past academic year and it’s only now that I’m finding more chunks of time to paint. Here’s a piece that I worked on last week.

Double Trouble

Double Trouble (a.k.a. my cute little nephews) are in town this week. In honour of their visit, here are two twin beds that I just adore.

I love this ruffled jersey organic sheet set from Pottery Barn.

The Friday Five: Garnet Hill

In the last few months I’ve been drawn quite a bit to Garnet Hill. I have yet to make a purchase or to test out any of the products but my friend Therese is a fan and I can see why.

Here are five of my favourite items for the home but there are also a lot of great articles of clothing and accessories. Definitely worth a browse…if not a few purchases!

Signature scalloped percale bedding, $21-$49 (on sale)

Frette bath towels, $10-$65

Megan tufted headboard, $978-$1188

faux-bamboo nightstand, $788

Simon Pearce Cavendish ceramic bowl, $40-$46

Thanks to Therese for introducing me to Garnet Hill.
