You know when you come across something and it encompasses your style completely? Well that's how I felt when I saw this lamp. It was love at first sight. This is me all wrapped up in a lamp and it needs to be in my house!! The pair would look so good in my living room. I found them at a great little home decor store called Stella Bleu. They have a great selection of pretty chandeliers to modern glam furniture and accessories. They are always a go to store for me when I'm looking for something special. Now I need to convince the husband that these lamps are a necessity!

I am currently working on a modern family room with minimal colour. A neutral pallet with great texture can be achieved by mixing fabric, metals and wood tones. This is a great way to keep a modern space from feeling too cold. Take note of the beautiful painting done by my friend and designer Karla Amadatsu from Kerrisdale Design.

I am finally getting around to decorating the house for the holidays and the first thing I did was fix up my empty uninviting planter at the front door. It was pitiful that my guests were being welcomed by an empty planter! I took inspiration from who else but Sarah Richardson. I loved the planters that she put together with Tommy on her holiday special. I don't have a green thumb at all so I think it turned out pretty well. Now I need to turn my attention to the inside of my house.
