Back on Trend: Butcher Block counters

I have been seeing a trend on Pinterest these past few months of butcher block counters. It seems this look is back and I find it looks really fresh again. When combined with the warm metals like brass it especially shines! It feels warm yet modern and is something to think about if you are renovating your kitchen. Here are a few great examples....

Pretty Plants

I am currently helping my daughter decorate her first apartment and plants seem to be very much on her mind. Since it is a very small apartment with little room for decor and expensive accessories, house plants seem like the perfect solution. They also feel surprisingly modern considering the fact that they seemed to be in style when I decorated my first apartment. Big or small they add some life and colour to any space...

Beautiful Brownstone

This is an amazing brownstone in Brooklyn New York that is simplicity and style at its best. The gorgeous chandeliers, simple furnishings and clean white walls are brought to life with pops of blue. The floors are kept a very natural pale colour which I am seeing more of these days and really loving. The entry with the moroccan tile introduces the blue as you walk in the house and gives a preview to the lovely home that awaits.

Moroccan Pom Pom Blankets

I love these Moroccan Pom Pom Blankets I am seeing everywhere! I want to order one and I found a great shop on Etsy that has some but….. I think I could also make one that would not be too far in look from what I see here. I learned to make pom pons for another project and they are surprisingly easy to make and lots of fun too! I will give it a try to show you the results!

The White Room

This gorgeous space in Melbourne called The White Room, is available to rent! A sweet space that I would love to stay in...surrounded by the best restaurants and entertainment this little gem has superb style. All in neutral grey, white and of my favourite combinations. Check out Est Magazine for more pictures!


Summer in Sweden

Such a sweet summer cottage in Sweden in this months Lonny Magazine. This 1200 sq ft home in Sweden was designed by Carol Ross along with the owner, a former journalist from Los Angeles, Ulrica Wihlborg. I love the pale tones and simple furnishings in this house. For the full story and more photos visit Lonny here...

Summer Pink

You know I love pink just about as much as I like black and white. It always feels fresh added to white in small touches. I also love it in flowers (the peonies right now!!!) , pottery, and in my strawberry ice cream.  Feels just perfect this time of year doesn't it!
