Plants for the windowless room

I love plants. They undeniably add a bit of life and interest to any room. But, I’m no florist… endless bouquets are not going to happen in my home. I’ve actually become a bit of a succulent girl over the past few years, and I have a couple favourites that are really flourishing, and they […]

Week 4 – ORC, Bedding and Kids Bedroom Design

Is it seriously week four of the One Room Challenge, already?! Phew! It’s been a biiiiig week around here.

One Room Challenge – Kids Bedroom Design – Week 2

Here we go again! Time for week two of the One Room Challenge, and my little girl’s bedroom design.

A few of the new additions… Owl light: Urban Barn, $39 Striped Rug: IKEA, $19.99 Pendant Ceiling Light: IKEA, $24.99 Faux Sheepskin Rug: IKEA, $12.99 Curtain Fabric: Quilt home, Joel […]

Before and After: Slip Cover

With a floorplan like this, you can’t re-vamp one area without it spilling out into the rest of the room. In the on-going attempts to get the home gym in order, this sofa is the first “victim” to conform to the new plan. Sorry little guy, colour palette is changing… time to get with the […]

Our Garden: Nature’s Before and After

After the snow disappeared in Spring, and the grass wasn’t quite green yet, I had to wonder, will the garden actually come back to life? Because, it sure doesn’t look like much right now. Hmmm… Well, behold the power of nature! Bigger and better than last year, and going strong! Let this be proof to […]
