{house tour: via little green notebook}

Ok, I know that probably half the world already saw {and pinned} Callie's home tour on Little Green Notebook yesterday, but I just have to re-post a few images here in case you happened to miss it. Mostly because I don't get super excited about spaces I come across everyday, but this one knocked my socks off. It is totally my style; neutrals with tiny touches of color, gorgeous vignettes everywhere you look, glamour, and hey a few ginger jars for good measure! I could move right in. Be sure to go see many more images over at LGN!

The vignettes! They are all so gorgeous! Callie is one talented gal ...

It's all so good, I can't get it out of my head ever since seeing it yesterday. And after seeing her pieces I feel an overwhelming urge to spray something in black lacquer!

Today is the last day to get your name in the draw to win a $250 designer bedding set from from Bedding Style HERE! Contest closes at midnight EST, I'll announce the winner tomorrow!

{aya 'blogpodium bound' contest}

I love what this amazing community of bloggers has been able to create; so many fabulous events with opportunities to learn, connect, and grow are taking place in so many cities. Enter BlogPodium: Canada's 1st and only conference series for design bloggers. They are holding a fantastic 'The Business of Blogging' meetup in May, and I'd absolutely love to attend it! Of course, fellow Vancouverites can tell you, the price for us to fly to TO is almost as much as it is to fly Europe ... and that's where the wonderful people at AyA Kitchens & Baths come in:

What an amazing opportunity! To enter you have to design your dream kitchen using products from AyA's website and other sites you love. I have to say, it was so much fun searching through their site and dreaming up a gorgeous kitchen. And I think you'll agree, this kitchen is SO me {you can click to enlarge for all the lovely details}:

No.1 - The Metal Peddler Copper Hood; No.2 - AyA Kitchens Antique English knob; No.3 - AyA Kitchens Classic/Traditional Allegra cabinet door style; No.4 - AyA Kitchens Traditional Large Crown; No.5 - Home Depot pot-filling faucet; No.6 - Ann Sacks marble subway tile backsplash; No.7 - Circa Lighting wood pendants; No.8 - La Cornue Chateau range; No.9 - AyA Kitchens English Antique Handle; No.10 - Paul Marra Brass chair; No.11 - 1st Dibs burled walnut table; No.12 - One Kings Lane accent chair

This really is my dream kitchen, because it has an 'old meets new' feel, with a dash of young traditional. References to the old-world include herringbone floors, large-scale cabinet crowns to the ceiling, the antique table, and plenty of brass from the Antique English AyA Kitchen hardware to the delicate brass chair. The geometric wood pendants and fabulous artwork add the touch of modern I need. Oh, and a pot-filling wall mounted faucet is totally on my must-have list, I'm not a fab cook so the easier the better! But in THIS kitchen, I think I'd become a chef ;)

Best of luck to everyone & thanks to AyA Kitchens & Baths for the amazing opportunity!
