Tile Envy

I'm working with my favourite kind of client right now. They are not only fun and easy-going but even better they are adventurous! They aren't afraid of a little pattern and are willing to jump in head first to include interesting elements in the search of a fabulous space! The mosaic tile we've found for their master bath that will run from the vanity to the ceiling is so perfect, it hurts. I don't think I've ever had tile envy before but I sure do now. Check out these beauties…. photo-11

Cottage Nook

What's a cottage without a comfy spot to curl up and read a book, take a nap or watch the storm roll over the lake?? It's an essential part of creating a relaxed cottage vibe and ensuring you and your guests have an enticing spot to encourage that relaxed behaviour! Not always an easy feat in today's fast paced world….

This little nook was one of my favourite parts of the cottage. The chair was inherited with the cottage and with a little paint (ok 5 cans of spray paint), some fabulous new fabric (thank you @tonicliving) it's my absolute favourite spot! See old CAN become new again and even better in my opinion!

Curl up and enjoy the view!

Cottage Life!

Cottage Exterior Cottage from the water

It's been a very busy year for me! My hubby was lucky enough to come into a family cottage that needed some serious love. This place had heart it just needed a few structural changes, new electrical, new plumbing, new floors, new bathrooms; ok the list goes on and on. But it was a fabulous place it was simply stuck in the last century. It was in desperate need of some serious TLC and a heavy dose of white paint! I truly believe that white paint can make everything better! This project was a decorators dream! A blank canvas, start from scratch kinda job and I was just the girl for the task. I'll post room by room the changes and the many DIY projects I undertook to transform the spaces into what they are now, hope you enjoy!
