West Elm Faves!

Hey Friends! Wow… it has been a while since my last post! Thanks to all of you that have stopped by to check in from time to time. It has not gone unnoticed and is much appreciated!

So we’ve been busy in the Urban Mom Home. Things are changing around here and we have started planning for some exciting new room makeovers that will hopefully be complete by late spring early summer. I am keeping my fingers crossed!!

Wanting some inspiration, I headed into the big city (Toronto) and spent my morning at one of my favourite shops. West Elm! It was so refreshing to walk in and see so many different shades of corals, teals, pinks and oranges! I will forever love black and white, but I must admit I loved all the pops of colour!

Here were some of my favourite finds…

A little of this a little of that and shopping Hauser outdoor furniture…

Happy Friday everyone! Wow…our little family had quite the eventful week!

On a whim, we decided to kick off the past weekend with a stunning house tour of a newly renovated bungalow in my home town of Cambridge. Designed by the super talented Amanda Forrest Interior Design Group and staged with the prettiest décor pieces from The Art of Home; this tiny house was transformed into a glamorous cottage in the city!! I am so looking forward to the full reveal on the Marilyn Denis Show!

amanda On Sunday we threw Miss. Vayda an awesome Sophia the 1st Princess birthday party.  How we have a four year old is beyond me?! I don’t know where time goes, I really don’t! This year I was super excited for her party, as it would probably be her first real memory of her very own birthday. That being said, we wanted to make it extra special and decided that her decorations would be a surprise.  So, Saturday night we tucked her in early and did as any parents would do…we stayed up until 2:00am and went overboard on decorations!  Her excitement on Sunday morning made our late night worth all the while!  It turned out to be an awesome party and we had (as Vayda would say) “the best day ever…”

With the busy week behind me, I am looking forward to a relaxing and finally getting a chance to enjoy the outdoors. This awesome weather has me dreaming of creating the perfect backyard oasis, so I thought I would share some inspiration one of my favourite Canadian retailers. Hauser creates some of the most unique and custom pieces that are perfect for any outdoor space.

Hauser

I love the company for many reasons. First off Hauser is Canadian and let’s face it; we don’t get to say that often enough.  Their upholstered pieces are not only stylish and comfy, but they also come in a multitude of colours giving you tons of design options. Lastly, they really make it easy to create the perfect outdoor space with oversized umbrellas, stylish rugs, lanterns and torches.

Shop on line or visit one of their many showrooms I promise you won’t be disappointed!

With that, I wish you all a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.

Where to find awesome Prints!

Happy Wednesday! This has been a jam packed week….and we’re only 3 days in! On an awesome note, the weather has been amazing and I am so excited for some down time over the weekend!

So, let’s talk about PRINTS! I have been working on some projects that recently sent me on the hunt for some cool prints. They are HUGE right now and I love how they add so much impact at a low price point. Whether you’re looking to dress up a nursery, fill a gallery wall, or frame one individual piece, there are so many on-line options and I thought I would share my top 10 favourites!

SOPHIE AND LILI

These custom prints by Sophie and Lili are overloaded with cuteness!! I absolutely love these prints. You send in your picture and she sends back your very own personalized caricature. How awesome is that?! Price points start at $80.00 and they are worth every penny!

SS PRINT SHOP

I love Stephanie Sterjovski’s prints! They are bold, graphic and very on trend. I recently purchased her “LOVE” print for a nursery project I had been working on. My clients loved it! When I came across this specific print, I thought it would be the perfect gift for a baptism, first communion or even a confirmation. Cost $15.00.
