Thanks for stopping by!

Current Wishlist

Wallpaper: Osborne & Little/Light: 1stdibs/Chair: Kelly Wearstler/Table: Style in Form/Bench: Oly/Chairs: Lawson Fenning

What is it going to take for me to get one of those furry Wearstler chairs?!?!
I've been looking for a bench for my entryway for a very long time now and I'm currently loving the idea of the footed Arthur Bench by Oly (in black instead of white). 
We have a small foyer in the centre of our home that is in need of a table and I think this round one is the perfect fit - add a vintage flush mount on top and we're set! 
I have loved this wallpaper forever now and I think it's time it landed on my powder room walls. 
And lastly but certainly not least, these Lawson Fenning brass chairs are my next purchase - in black leather of course!

Eye Candy: Elle Decor

Elle Decor recently did a spread of a home that was decorated by the fabulous Kelly Wearstler. I seriously haven't been able to stop looking at the pictures since I first saw them. KW literally can do no wrong in my eyes, and if I had my way she would totally be decorating my entire house. Here are a bunch of my fav shots...

She does natural stone so good!

The tile in the background, the carpet on the stairs... amazing!

The staircase & wallpaper are the absolute best part of this home for me. I seriously neeeeed to have that staircase in my life - a girl can dream!

My husband needs a home office like this

Like honestly, it's literally perfection!

Fabulous Finds: 1stdibs Edition

All images via

I could spend hours looking at home stuff online!! One of my favourite spots is 1stdibs - isn't it everyone's? There is just way too much goodness all in one spot, and way too little money/space to buy all of it. This is just a glimpse of a few things I've been swooning over lately. The brass bar stools need to come home to me (if only I hadn't just recently bought some - which aren't nearly as amazing!) and those navy velvet Milo Baughman chairs literally make me die. I really wouldn't mind a chunky marble coffee table, or a set of Platner stools either. Love, love, love!

Outfit Inspo: Friday Fun

Shirt: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Pants: Current/Elliott, Glasses: Rayban, Bag: BCBG, Shoes: BCBG

Thought I'd have some fun and put together a little look during nap-time. I would so be wearing this right now if I had it all in my closet. Totally craving that muscle tank & those star jeans.

Dining Progress: Picture

Wow, it's been forever! I'm a horrible blogger - hence why I haven't told anyone about this blog and why I'm basically writing to myself. Anyways, I've been doing a lot of this lately...

 And of course spending time with the 3 men in my life. 
Here's a little picture update of my dining room - a before and almost after.

Gah, this picture makes me cringe. This was me trying to figure out which direction to go, yet still have something that looked presentable when people came over. Next, the current look...

This is where we're at right night. We still need to add the top to the floating sideboard, hang the wallpaper/picture and dress everything up a little. I think I'm loving it already...

My dining room is right in the middle of our main floor and visible from everywhere, so it's currently high on the priority list of rooms to complete. It's taken me some time to decide what direction I want to go with it. 

We bought a dining set when we moved in and it was very mid century modern - since then my style has changed a lot. The table and credenza we bought weren't cheap so I have to make them work. Luckily I got white Panton chairs as my dining chairs at the time, and decided to use them outside for deck furniture since we needed something anyways. I decided all this when I scored a sweet pair of chairs online (6 for 200$) which are currently being reupholstered in a neutral off-white fabric.

These were really the inspo to the entire room, and I'm hoping to make everything else work once I get them back. Anyways, here is a board of my current plans for our dining room.

We're making a floating sideboard and moving my existing to another room. I bought these amazing Fiona table lamps from Circa Lighting after seeing them in a issue of lonny mag - love! I found this wallpaper from Lowe's that looks like marble and plan to use it on a small portion of the wall - with skinny moulding around it - and possibly this beach print I bought from etsy (MyanSoffia)on top of it. The light is from West Elm and the fabric is almost identical to the sheer track curtains we have throughout the house. This is another option, just with my fav piece from Jessica Rae Sommer on the wall instead. Still deciding... I could put her everywhere!

Well, that's the plan! I'll post a few pics once things start coming together.

A quick picture post while my littlest man is snoozing. It's all about Rosie on this one.

 She's seriously stunning, and always dressed so perfect. Can I just say I wish I looked like her... that'd be fab! 

I seriously need to step up my blogging game - I took a loooooong unintentional hiatus between posts. Life has been a little on the crazy side, but I'm back... for now!

Ohhhh Milo B, how I love thee

Purchased my first set of Milo Baughman chairs from 1stdibs and I couldn't be any happier. I am obsessed with all his chairs, so to finally have two of my own was very exciting. Like honestly, could they be any more beautiful!

Tufted black velvet... amaze
(I have two. The other is in my entrance way)

My living room. Don't judge, I still need to paint
the fireplace wall black and get a rug.

Comfy comfy

I'm fashion obsessed. I love anything to do with it. However, unless I have somewhere to go or someone to see.. I dress like a complete slob. Yes, I get barfed on and drooled on several times throughout the day but it really comes down to not having enough time. Unless I want two little boys hanging out in the bathroom with me while I shower, it's just not going to happen. I really need to start setting my alarm early to get up and have some time to myself. Until that happens - which will probably be never - I embrace the fashionable sweat trend when I need to take a quick run to the store.

I'm especially loving the middle pic with the fur coat - perfection! For the times that I actually decide to get dressed, I wouldn't mind adding these beauties to my wardrobe

Those Paige jeans are screaming my name and I seriously can't get enough of the Isabel Marant sneakers. They really would make my life complete - too bad it will never happen :)

Well, the little man woke up, that's it for me!

Pinterest Pretties

Pinterest has changed my life. I don't know if a website can actually even do that, but really. I've made some pretty amaze desserts, meals and appetizers courtesy of Pinterest. I've found so much home inspiration and many amazing home decor blogs because of it. It's also been a great source for all things fashion and style. So yah, it's definitely changed my life - at least those parts. Here are a few of my recent Pins that I can't help but stare at!

Seriously, just give me a tufty time sofa

I am tray obsessed, LOVE this one

This colour needs to happen somewhere
in my house

I'm on the hunt for an amazing ostrich
painting like this one, love it!

The mirror, the mobile pendant light,
the gold velvet couch - delish!

I love the colours and overall style of this space.
I am debating having my BIL make me a geometric wall 
like this one for my dining room

The black doors, Zebra cowhide and gold tufted
bench are exactly what my entrance needs!

Details, details..

I never realized how many little nick nacks you actually need when trying to make a space look complete. I feel like I already have tones of them placed around the house - which is oh so hard for my 2 year old to resist - yet somehow I still want more! Here's a few of my fav things I've collected...

A Bust is a must
(my son points to this and says "Daddy" LOL!)

Mohair tray, vintage teacups, Gold flatware 
& glass decanter 

Leopard tray & gold keys

My "Jesus hands"
