{lusting: leopard pillows ... }


A dash of leopard always makes me happy ... and what's more chic than leopard print pillows?

I think the evidence is clear! I particularly love the pairing of the grosgrain ribbon bordered white pillows above with the leopard, yum. Arianna Belle's pillow shop is a great source for both!
 
Yep, I think if my home had a separate living room {as opposed to tv room}, I'd go with an ivory sofa and pillows like these. I love the look! Any of you sporting a touch of leopard in your home?

{a spring picnic ... }


It's been gorgeously sunny here in Vancouver, and I'm dreaming of a pretty afternoon picnic complete with cucumber sandwiches & raspberry macaroons. Definitely on my list for this season! Here's some lovely inspiration:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
That's my take on a fabulous & preppy spring picnic, isn't the J Crew silk skirt gorg? Pink and green has to be my favorite color combo. Hope it's sunny where you are, have the loveliest weekend everyone!

{currently coveting: black matting}


So I've come to realize that I have been saving several images of frames with black matting. I think the look is super chic, especially combined with gold of course:

I'm completely decided that black matting has to happen somewhere in my home. A black mat amongst all-white in a gallery wall adds a perfect pop, I think that will be my plan:
 
 
 
 
Love it!!! Are you as smitten with this look as much as I am??

{neutrals, neutrals, neutrals ... }


I always love seeing projects with a dash of color, BUT truth be told, my heart seriously sings when I lay my eyes on fabulous neutral spaces like these ones below. With a totally neutral palette, all of the shapes, materials, textures, and furnishings take center stage. Jamie Herzlinger is the talented lady behind all of these fab spaces, you can see these and more spaces recently added to her personal portfolio board on Pinterest.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Seriously good stuff. That last bathroom with the amazing tile laid in a herringbone pattern on the floor and placed on the lower half of the walls makes me very happy. That's the most unique use of stone I've seen in a long while.
 
Don't forget you can shop Jamie's style over on JAMIESHOP, home to over 400 of the top "to the trade only" manufacturers. Have a wonderful weekend!

{make a statement ... }


Happy Thursday everyone! Hope your week is well thus far. Now, I know I'm not bringing you any groundbreaking news from the fashion world by saying this - but statement necklaces are one of my current favorite ways to take an outfit to the next level. I LOVE how it just sets off any ensemble:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Seriously, the evidence is clear isn't it? So when you are wanting to add a little 'oomph' to an outfit, add a statement necklace! And I think it's good to have a few with color, but at least one without color so you could literally wear it with anything. Here are a few of my current favs:
 
 
 
I adore each of these, especially #1, the nantucket necklace (only $32!!) and #3, the neutral colors are stunning. Do you have a favorite source for statement necklaces?

{lusting: beautiful archways ... }


I am constantly pinning architectural details to my millwork & mouldings pin board! It's all in the details, and I have big dreams for a 'dream home' one day :) Today I am inspired by beautiful archways; whether on doors, cabinets, windows, or in hallways, they add so much to a space. Here is a round up of some of my favorite examples:

 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Aren't they all so lovely? Dreamy spaces indeed, and all of the architectural details takes these rooms to the next level. I think if I had to choose just one, I'd love to have that black arched front door between the flanking topiaries. Hey, a girl can dream right??
 
Have a great Monday!
