House Envy: Modern Victorian in Upstate New York

Modern victorian living room

For a while, Justin and I had every intention on beginning our house hunt last September. Aaaand then I launched my business. And at that point it really didn’t make sense to get ourselves into something so financially demanding until my income became consistent once again. With our dream of home-ownership so close (yet so far, it seems), I regularly find myself fantasizing about the look and feel of our future abode. And though I have to admit said style/feel/aesthetic changes on the daily, right now this modern victorian home in upstate New York is it. It’s rich in history, full of life, comes complete with sky-high ceilings and, paired with classic mid-century modern finds, boasts a hint of unexpected contrast I so often crave.

Monday Musings

Colorful picturesWith my trip to Thailand a mere four days away, I find myself daydreaming of bare arms and turquoise waters on the regular. I apologize in advance for this collection of bright and summery photos, but perhaps what we all need during this winter fueled by record low temps is a little dose of sunshine. In addition to said dose, I also give you a handful of links I’ve been loving lately:

:: The loveliest nursery
:: 300 awesome free things for start-ups (this has been so helpful!)
:: The prettiest graphic cookies
:: A trick for choosing wine
:: The most amazing bold lipstick
:: My new favourite site
:: 32 hilarious kids
:: I got a little personal in my interview with Supal 
:: And my current dream bag

And before I go, I wanted to take a second to thank miss Lauren Conrad who featured my raspberry rose fizz cocktail on Friday (right here)! Does this mean I’ve made it?

Scenes from my Week

Tea and flowers{a peek at a fun photo shoot with Impressed}

Last weekend, in celebration of Ontario’s new(ish) holiday, Family day*, the entire crew headed up to the cottage only to be greeted by thigh-high piles of snow. The entire county felt sleepy and still. Picturesque, really. Without a soul in sight, we set out on multiple snowy walks, partook in a very intense game of Phase 10, and literally and figuratively ate our way through our days. When we weren’t eating, we were busy preparing for our next feast. And when we weren’t preparing for our next feast, we were snacking on leftovers and brewing pots of tea. What I’m saying is that I believe the secret to legitimately enjoying winter is long weekends, lots of food, lots of family, and piles upon piles of snow. Here’s a peek at the rest of my week, in photos… 

*I am totally okay with invented holidays if it means we get an extra day off to snuggle on our loved ones
