Chapters Too, is a Gateway to an Empty Wallet

A casual trip to Chapters, nbd…. Except when I go with the intentions of a good book + find myself perusing through their home collection section for an hour! Chapters – why do you do this to me? Just when I think, okay I’m safe – there’s nothing to buy here but books! I am sadly mistaken by beautiful prints by the oh so inspiring + talented Stephanie Sterjovski, cheerful tea cups or bright pretty stationery from my favorite Rifle Paper Co. .. geez  you can’t even escape a good statement necklace! Whoever is doing the buying over at Chapters is doing their job because by the time Christmas rolls around I’m going to have quite the list for Santa.

Monday Zzzz

On a frosty Monday morning, there is one place in particular I’d rather be. In bed! So since I’m still day dreaming of my warm, cozy covers I figured it would only be natural to share some of my favorite spaces to catch a wink.

If ever you can’t find it in stores, you do-it-yourself. I’ve come across loads of DIY-inspired ideas for around the home that I would totally incorporate into my own. Especially these easy alterations to typical pieces like the ones I’ve shared below. A little gold accent really takes these looks to the next level. What are some of your favorite DIY projects?

Coffee Nooks

It’s official, fall has arrived + we are forced to say so-long to summer. Looking out the window at this cold, rainy + rather gloomy day got me to thinking about the warmth + coziness that I do enjoy when forced to deal with this sort of weather. Things I love most about this time of year are truly the simplest. Sometimes there is nothing better than cozying up with a great book + a strong cup of coffee.

I wanted to share some of the coolest + creative home coffee nooks + bars that I hope to one day incorporate into my own home:

The Coffee Cabinet from Details & Design

The Cappuccino Corner from Martha Stewart

The Coffee Bar from The Aestate

Rustic Meets Chic

As much as I love classic white, modern interiors I also have a profound love for rustic pieces that bring a unique charm + feel to a space. Much like my life, I admire + often adore high-end labels + glamorous style + decor. On the other hand I love the gifts that nature provides, the beauty of the outdoors, often spending my down-time on Vancouver Island basking in the beauty + simplicity of the ocean, trees, sun + sky. Blending these two worlds is completely unique to me, an imprint of my own personality.
