"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."

A settee is one of the most useful pieces of furniture. It can be used at the bottom of a bed, in a dining room or eating nook, in a living room if space is tight, an entryway or even a wide hallway. It's on my list of must haves when we eventually move to a new house. My choice would be to have one in my entryway and have a cushy spot for my guests to sit while they put there shoes on and off. I am in love with the first image. Isn't it gorgeous?
I didn't think I was going to squeeze in this post today. It's been a crazy week with the kids being home on spring break, so much so that I had my nine year old daughter take these pictures! She's a budding photographer don't you think? I love mixing different prints, polka dots and animal print is by far one of my favourite combinations. If this is too much for you then try mixing on a smaller scale. What about a floral shoe and a striped shirt? Have a good weekend!
I just love the new Emerson Fry spring collection! I signed up a few weeks ago to receive the spring preview and I'm loving some of the new pieces. I wish they weren't so expensive or I would be buying a few things right now! Here are some of my favourites.
I fell in love with this beautiful watercolour wallpaper from a company called Black Crow Studios. They are featured in the March edition of Canadian House and Home. It looks like a beautiful piece of art on your wall. If you didn't want to commit to wallpaper they will also mount it on canvas for you. I think it would be stunning on a dining room wall, don't you?
