"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

I happen to be in Homesense last night and spotted these amazing moroccan pendants.  If you are looking to make a statement these would look amazing!

Thom Filicia's great style

I just ordered Thom Filicia Style on Amazon today.  He mixes a classic style with stand out accent pieces that would bring a ton of personality to any space.  Here are some of my favourite spaces.  Enjoy!

A few things on my list for spring

I am ready for spring and have my eye on a few pieces to add to my wardrobe.  I know it's a little early but as soon as Christmas is over I want winter to end and spring to begin.  This is around the time when my SAD really kicks in and looking at warmer weather clothes helps me cope!!

I'll take this whole look

Loving the florals

This whole outfit is so me.  I have a thing for scarves and this one is on my list.

Back painted bookshelves

I don't know about you but I just love the look of back painted shelves.  It really brings them to life and adds a great pop of colour.  If you don't want to commit to painting your walls a bold colour this is a great place to do it.

(I know this bookcase isn't back painted but I came across it and couldn't help but include it.  It's one of my all time favourites!)
