Sneak Peek :: MyDiab Canada Design

April 24th, 2015

It’s always fun to get a design outside of the U.S. Especially, when it’s a four season porch in Canada. This design reminds me of my hometown in Minnesota where four season porches are a must have in your home. The mission was to create a cozy room to retreat to for coffee and to read  a book. I think we achieved this while meeting the desired budget. Here is a sneak peek. It’s only the client that gets the detailed shopping list and more. Happy weekend all!

Design Quick Tip :: A Space To Share

April 22nd, 2015

This is such a great use of a children’s shared space. The idea of pushing the beds head to head along a long wall is so smart. I also love the gallery wall above. Artwork is still framed, but easily swapped out with colorful washi tapes. It’s so stylish and most importantly fun. You can find all these items on the oh so adorable website of Hanna Andersson.

DIY Tuesday :: Hanging Basket Pendant

April 21st, 2015

I’m really obsessed with  basket pendant lights right now. I especially love the idea of making one of my own. That way you can select a basket that really works with your decor. With a simple trip to Word Market for the perfect basket and Home Depot for the light kit you will be all set. Here is a nice tutorial on how to do this.

In The Details :: Hanging Bath Plants

April 20th, 2015

Is your bathroom white tiled and cold feeling? Give it that spa vibe with plants…a lot of them. You can create a dramatic plant wall in front of  a window with hanging plants. Or…it can be as simple as adding a  leafy branch in a glass jug vase. Either way it is sure to bring the outdoors in.

#1 I’m gushing over everything about this entry. What I love most about is that with a few key accessories like a rattan chair, fur throw, runner and wine jug vase with greenery you too can have this look. It can be in a niche, foyer or hallway landing. photo via SF Girl ByBay


#2 This is a great use of a dividing wall. This could work just as well for books for kids toys with baskets in a non bathroom setting.


#3 Did you inherit Granny’s sterling. Here are some great uses for these vintage pieces. via Apartment Therapy
