I think this beautiful photograph and the quote posted by The Terrible Artist are perfect for today – Valentine’s Day and every day after! Shouldn’t we all treat each other this way each day, no matter what? Yes, we should.
Have a great day today, whatever you do!
I used to read (drool over) every page of Domino magazine from cover to glorious cover. I just got the latest news – Domino will be reborn in newsstand-only special editions entitled “Domino Quick Fixes.”
The magazine will mix new and previously published content. Domino was always ahead of the design trends, so their “old” material will still look fresh today!
I am so psyched to get my that first issue in my hands! Here are some pics from the past.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Not ready yet?
Here are some inspirational images for you!

I love traditional interior decor when it has an edgy vibe to it. Like these rough and textured walls paired with fab furniture.
An unfinished bedroom wall is a stark contrast against a traditional headboard via desire to inspire. Textured wall as seen on marie claire maison. Concrete wall of a World War II bunker turned into a penthouse in Berlin via emmas designblogg.
You can get achieve this look by placing a custom order from the Concrete Wall collection. High-quality vinyl wallpaper, designed by photographer Tom Haga from Norway. The Concrete Wall collection is the result of photographing raw and refined concrete walls and raw cinder block walls. They ship worldwide. Awesome.
I was delighted to see that one of my favourite bloggers is featured in the new issue of Adore Home, an Australian online magazine.
Nicole Balch of Making it Lovely blog recently designed a fabulous bedroom on a budget for one of her lucky readers! Read about it in Adore Home and check out their awesome Style to Steal article for inspiration!
In 1956, the Tulip collection was created for Knoll by Finnish American architect and industrial designer Eero Saarinen. His rationale behind the design was to “clear up the slum of legs” created by the standard set of table and chairs. Gotta love it!
If you look at a typical interior, you will find an amazing number of legs. Saarinen decided to simplify the design from the start. The tulip table is a classic that comes in many sizes, shapes and colours. It is so versatile and can be used with numerous decor styles from casual to formal, modern, traditional and rustic.

It’s January and I have the blahs, so, I’m going to dream that my suitcase is packed and I’m ready to embark on a voyage to Paris to rent a quaint apartment, visit the cafés, the Eiffel Tower and all the gorgeous shops! I’d drink wine, try all sorts of pastries and visit every fabulous place this famous city has to offer.
I’m in awe of people who are constantly making pretty crafty things. I like to do crafty things but I’m also very lazy when it comes to buying all the supplies and gathering little fussy bits and baubles to create something. I also hate getting glue on my hands.
This clever idea on the sweet paul blog changed my attitude. Everyone has an old, unwanted sweater stuffed in a drawer somewhere. Even if you don’t, thrift shops sell them for next to nothing. Take a vase, cut the sleeve off the sweater, place the vase in the arm and cut off about 2 ” from the bottom. Fold that 2″ in and voila, you have a very stylish winter vase. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this would make a thoughtful gift for your mom or a close friend… don’t forget the flowers!
