i couldn't have said it better

This sign in a little London breakfast spot pretty much sums up how i feel every morning!

new minis

i just added these new mini pillows in my etsy shop - the new design is called the Kensington.



i just brought a few pieces to this wonderful little boutique on Laurier in Montreal. stepping into Buk & Nola is like entering a wonderland of beautiful design - i'd move right in if they'd let me! Zooey, Simone and Nadja are now available there - go check them out (Buk & Nola - 1593 Avenue Laurier Est in Montreal)


it's my first night free after a busy week, and all i want to do is curl up and watch a film.

mid-century beauty

i've been busy busy this last little while and haven't found the time to post - sorry! but i did have time to sneak this beauty into my esty shop. yep, that's more thomas paul fabric!


the new pink

(from Design*Sponge)

Design forecaster Li Edelkoort says yellow is the new pink, and thinks we'll be seeing even more of it popping up. My yellow obsession continues...


sweet like a... fox

Amy Blackwell is an artist living in the UK, where she makes sweet little prints like these. I have one of her little creatures on the wall in my bedroom, but i think i need a few more. You can never have too many fox prints, can you?

too late

(from the MAC)

Last night, I headed to the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal, hoping to see Robert Polidori's exhibit - it had ended TWO days earlier, so I missed out.

I did get to wander through Betty Goodwin's pieces though, "the grande dame of Canadian contemporary art." Check out her Buried Vest - a wall piece featuring vests buried in dirt - awesome!


oh, estrid

(from Svenskt Tenn)

Estrid Ericson, such a cool lady! I love this photo of her and Josef Frank, admiring one of his prints.

i spotted this great outfit on Oh Joy! and immediately started planning similar fall outfits...oh, fall, how i love you!


panthéon pétro

If you're in Montreal, check out Dominique Pétrin's great exhibit, Panthéon Pétro at La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse. Think floor to ceiling prints with crazy patterns and colors!


This antique footstool was spruced-up with an awesome Marimekko print - now available in my etsy shop.
