I’m currently in the middle of designing a kitchen with sky-high ceilings, and while trying to work out the cabinet logistics I stumbled upon the kitchen (above). That rolling ladder? It is so darn good, and literally exactly what I’m after. Continue Reading
Fall has officially decided to make its debut around lately and I, for one, am thrilled. I’m not sure if you can tell (ha!), but it’s my favourite time of the year. I love the crisp air, falling leaves, good hair days, hot tea, and cozy knits that go hand and hand with the season. Continue Reading
I missed my Scenes from my Week post last Friday when I posted our engagement photos (you can check those out here if you’re interested!), and while I thought the mini SFMW break would be welcomed, I found that I actually missed it. Lately I’ve noticed that sitting down to recap my week has been a bit of a therapeutic act, in a sense. While I feel like folks aren’t as interested in this series as they once were, Continue Reading

We used to entertain fairly frequently back in our condo, and seeing as we’ve been renovating for the last year, it’s something I’ve missed fiercely since moving into our home. But alas, the renovations are complete (for now!) and I’m thrilled to share our dining room reveal with you today. Continue Reading
For as long as I can remember, I’ve looked forward to having a front porch of my own to decorate seasonally. All day, around this time each year, I dreamed about transforming our own home into the likes of this or this. So when we first bought our home, it was all I could do to not begin scheming.
