{large scale floral wallcoverings}


I'm guessing you spotted Emily's powder room makeover the other day? Golden! I love seeing brave new ideas like this ... it truly is the LARGE-scale floral wallpaper by Ellie Cashman that makes the space - it just wouldn't be the same without it!

 
 
How lovely! Would you use a large-scale floral or botanical wallcovering like this one? It's definitely a go-big-or-go-home look. Here are a couple more examples:

I think it's perfection especially in a powder room - the idea of a small space that packs a seriously powerful punch is so attractive to me! What do you think?

{spring pastels: lusting for lilac}



I'm not one to generally gravitate towards shades of purple in interiors ... but lately I've been seeing beautiful examples of lovely lilac, and I adore it! Maybe it's because I'm dreaming of spring and all the pretty pastels that come along with it?

 
 
 


Everything looks so calming and airy in these spaces and I think it comes from the fact that in every example above, lilac is being paired with a heavy dose of crisp white and soft creams. So inviting, don't you think?

{house tour: a caribbean jem}


Happy new week! We had snow all weekend here in Vancouver - so, needless to say I've been reminiscing about our recent Caribbean getaway and that glorious Bahamian sunshine. So when I spotted this preppy Bahamas house tour via HouseBeautiful, I was instantly in love! Designer Amanda Lindroth created a very Florida-meets-Caribbean, modern-meets-preppy getaway:

 
 
 



 
 
 
 
Hope these sunny & bright images warmed your winter up like they did for me. Countdown to spring is on!

{five fabulous friday links ...}


Happy Friday! Woot, we made it! Have any big plans this weekend? I'm hanging with family, getting my hair cut {desperately needs it, can any one say split-ends?}, and celebrating my second cousin's first birthday! It should be a fun-filled couple of days.

I'll leave you with 5 links of loveliness to enjoy this weekend:


First up, did you catch Christine's house tour on Style Me Pretty this week? Gawh, too much goodness! Check out Christine's glam new website as well.


Ok, we talked spring-y pastel pink winter coats yesterday; it seems as though the fashion world is disregarding traditional seasons these days, and I for one am loving it! Check out Blair's winter florals, and Mackenzie's winter white jeans.


Another tour from Style Me Pretty, Meredith's insane office was showcased this week as well. I feel so blessed to have visited this space two summers ago - it honestly is stunning in person, what a talent she is!


I've been following Olivia's every move during fashion week, you can check out my pin board for the evidence - so many great outfit ideas!


And finally, have you ever printed photos from your Instagram? We all have hundreds of pics stored on our phones ... I think this is such a great idea to have some 'hard-copies' to hang on to and enjoy. I'd love to know what sites you have used if you have printed insta-photos before! Jen posted a lovely way she displayed her Instagram photos yesterday that I loved.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

{fashion inspiration: the pink coat}


Now that New York Fashion Week has come and gone, I think it's fair to say the pink winter coat is going strong. This is a chic and feminine look I'm loving in every way:

 
Wendy's Lookbook; Kate Beckinsale
 
 
 
 
Song of Style; Mira Duma
 
 
 
 
I love seeing such a spring-y pastel shade of pink in the dead of winter!
 
Hope you have a wonderful day ;)

{designer profile: luxe report designs}


Did you catch the post on Luxe Report Designs over on The Glam Pad last week? Well, I for one am so glad Andrea introduced me to Christin Carron and Lauren Kukkamaa, the duo behind this fabulous design/entertaining company. These ladies are all about Hollywood Regency and glamour; from Dorothy Draper, to leopard print, to blue & white décor, it's all the things I love wrapped into each of their spaces:

I love it all! I think I'm going to be spending some time on their new website. See the original post from The Glam Pad with many more images here.
