{blue in the bathroom ...}


Hi everyone! Hope your week is ending well :) As the cold weather has set in here in Vancouver, hubby and I decided it was time to take down the pretty patio gear and get winter-ready! You may recall my lovely little blue & white garden stools from this post; well I'm kinda excited to get to use them inside the house for the coming months! Switching things up always keeps our homes interesting, don't you think? So I began to take note of all the gorgeous white bathrooms I come across that utilize blue & white stools, and I just adore the look:

 
 
 
 
 
Isn't that little dash of blue & white such a luxe look? Ok so my bathroom isn't anything like these lovelies at all, but I think they've helped me to decide where I'll be placing my patio garden stools until next spring :)

{lusting: artwork by anewall}


Happy Friday everyone! My apologies for the lack of posts as of late, its been a wee bit crazy over here! As regular readers know, I'm a college professor by day and the semester is getting a little busy. But all is well and I'm literally counting the days down till Christmas break :)

Have you happened upon Christine's amazing home projects lately? I am loving all of it, if you haven't been following along you need to hop over and check it all out ... SO good! After her recent artwork post I followed her link to new-to-me Anewall {pronounced a-new-wall} and instantly fell in love:



Seriously her home is looking incredible, and I simply can't get the scale of these canvases out of my mind. Best part is the prices are so reasonable! They've got canvases, murals, wallpaper, and customizable options; here is a sampling:

 
Love the science-nerdy vibe of this one, perfect for an office.
 
 
Architecture is definitely a weakness of mine:
 
 
 
 
Maps!! Love Paris & NY of course :)



So just to give you an example of the great prices, the NY map above comes on a gallery wrapped canvas as a massive 44" x 56" for only $149!


Too much good stuff that it's hard to choose! Let's just say I'm starting my Christmas wishlist ;)

{lusting: clothing racks}


Hi everyone! Did you have a good long weekend?

Today I'm lusting for a pretty display of my favorite clothing items in my closet: I adore the idea of a dress rack! Very practical if you have the space for one.

 
 

 

I love the fun display it creates, and my closet is bursting at the seams, so I'm really wishing to implement this idea. I've heard Ikea is a good source (one for $9.99!! You could spray it brass like Christine of Bijou and Boheme did above. Another here for $44.99). Any other racks you've seen around?

{timeless tortoise ...}


Hi everyone! Eek, it's Thursday already! And it's October 10th already! Where did this week go?

Lately I've had all-things-tortoise-shell on the brain. I'm seriously considering purchasing a tortoise shell watch, doesn't that sound like the chicest fall accessory? There are so many classic pieces out there, and at every price point. And you'll always know it will never go out of style!

 
 
Hope you have a lovely day!

{welcome october ...}



Well, it's the start of a new month and a new season. It's getting chilly out, I've got a few mini pumpkins dressing up my dinner table, and I've officially had my first pumpkin spice latte ;) I'm leaving you with a visual feast of all the images that have inspired me to embrace autumn.
