Scenes from my Week

cousins {my cousin and I throughout the years} 

In just over 24 hours my cousin, and dear friend, will be walking down the aisle. Having beeen practically attached at the hip for the vast majority of our lives, there’s no denying we’ve had our fair share of adventures over the years. But this one adventure she’s about to embark on? Well I’m pretty damn excited about it. So pardon me if this is brief, but I have a bride to dress, some champagne to drink, some lipstick to apply and some serious celebrating to do! Before I go, here’s a peek at the rest of my week (in photos, of course).

Riesling Poptails

Wine poptails

I present to you: the riesling poptail! It’s a boozy treat served on a stick and I seriously can’t get enough. I was first introduced to the poptail a few summers ago at a now defunct restaurant in Toronto, and I could barely contain myself. Since that magical evening, I’ve tried my hand at a few homemade variations and although a few of them were pretty good, none had proven blog worthy until now. Recreated ENTIRELY by a recipe my friend Molly recently shared, it’s one part white wine, one part simple syrup, kicked up big time with a few edible flowers. It’s pretty, it’s refreshing, and it’s officially THE thing to make this summer.

Project: Dream Client

So I had every intention on blogging all about my real life interior design projects when I originally launched my business, but other than the odd mention in a SFMW post, somewhere along the way I totally dropped the ball. But if you guys think this is something you might be interested in, it could be a fun little series!

I’m currently in the thick of the planning process for a home in the East End of Toronto, and I’m so excited to see it all come to fruition. I’ve recently coined this beauty as Project: Dream Client as they’re two of the kindest, most down to earth people I’ve ever met, and I count my blessings daily. I’m meeting them next week to go over all of the final details before we start the purchasing process, but I thought I’d give you all a glimpse at where we started! The following are two potential design options I presented to them not long ago:

option-no-1{THE INSPIRATION}

Serene dining roomDream kitchen

Clean and sophisticated living room and dining room

Inspired by all things light and airy, this option feels fresh and pretty, all white remaining timeless for years to come. The palette is fairly neutral, with subtle navy and blush accents, brought to life with a wicked mint green couch they currently own. 


option-no-2{THE INSPIRATION}

Mint green living room Pastel bedroom

Pink and pretty round up

Option two is young, fresh and incredibly vibrant. It’s a little trendier and a whole lot more playful than option one, which is a little new for me, but I’m loving where it’s going.  And with two tiny tots in this home, it really just felt right. Pink accents take centre stage, while hints of gold add just the slightest bit of grown-up-glam. 


I’d love to know! Which would you choose? If you guys think you’d be interested in future posts like this, I’ll be sure to keep you updated on where we land in the coming weeks!
