When building my Waterford house, I learned quite a bit about light fixtures.  I had to buy one for each and every room of the house.  I spent hours upon hours searching for just the right fixture for each room.  My favourite of all were the 3 mercury glass pendants in my Kitchen.  I ordered then from West Elm. My…

Kelly Greeeeeeen

This morning, I was browsing through my favourite website, houzz.com, and came across this picture.  I thought to myself ‘Ahhh, that GREEEN again’. My love for Kelly Green all started with this one tear sheet I have of a kelly green chair from Ikea (and no, not because in my previous life I was Katie Kelly).  The tear sheet is…

I’m obsessed with Houndstooth!!!

One of my most favourite patterns of all time is houndstooth.  Why?  I have no idea, but I have always been drawn to houndstooth fabrics.  So I am devoting an entire post to Houndstooth! I have these 2 incredible chairs I bought a few years ago from Stoney Creek Furniture.  My cat has destroyed them and they are in desperate…

Built-Ins (Kind of!)

I absolutely love the look of built ins, but I hate the cost that is associated with them!  The family room in my new house could use some nice built ins on either side of the fire place (see pic below!) and I would love to do something wall to wall in the kids new playroom.  But errr, the $$$$. …

The Master Bedroom

 The Master Bedroom in the new house is one of the rooms that made me LOVE this house.  The floors are beautiful and instantly reminded me of our farm (tear, still miss that place).  I love the baseboards and the 2 windows scream ‘cover me with beautiful, luxurious drapery’.  The room has two huge closets and an ensuite bath.   When…

For my little man..

 James’s room is awesome!  It has beautiful baseboards and the most amazing wide plank, pine floors.  Why they have pine floors in just one room, I dunno.  But, I don’t ask questions when it comes to beautiful details. I’d like to get to James’s room as quick as I get to Grace’s.  They are on the top of the priority…
