Pink isn’t usually my thing. Not that there is anything wrong with it of course – I am just usually attracted to more masculine colors. However, these cheerful pink rugs are giving me pause. There is just something about a really great pink rug in a neutral space that is so gutsy and fresh. It’s such a easy way to work some color into your space in a rather unexpected way.

The cooler months are definitely hard for me. I really dislike the dark wet weather we get around here and I know I’m not alone in my seasonal struggles. But what I do love about it is the opportunity to make my home feel warm and cozy. I love to use loads of candles, pillows and throws to make thing the world outside seem somewhat bearable. My favourite winter accessory of all is the (faux) fur throw. It’s soft and sexy and just makes everything around it seem more luxurious. Here are a few great examples:

{ Aerin Lauder’s ski chalet - This.Is.Glamourous }

{ Z.Gallerie throw - Cupcakes and Cashmere }

Effortless style | Elle Decor }

{ Nate Berkus - Coco + Kelley }

{  Sketch42 }

Living Etc. }

{ Patric Johansson }

{ Rachel Zoe - AT }

(Note: I’m sure some of these are photos of real fur but please don’t send PETA my way. I can only fully endorse the faux stuff. Besides there are some really great fakes these days – using the real thing just seems silly.)

I have spoken many times before about my love of natural elements for the home. So it only makes since that I totally adore the look of a large tortoise shell, whether on a wall, on a stand or used as a light fixture. But before you gasp in horror, please note that all of these babies are actually clever resin replicas. No actual tortoises were harmed in the making!

Geometric shapes are a major trend popping up all over the design world. Whether the items are actually textural or not seems irrelevant. Even just a playful geo pattern fits into this trend.  I am especially loving these shapes when rendered in bright happy colours. It’s simple and clean, but a great way to add some interest to a space. Here are some great examples:


{ Fairwood Buddies Cafe, Hong Kong - Blu Ant Studio }

{ MS Cafe, Poland - Dezeen | AnAn Noodle Bar, Germany - CoolBoom }

{ Polyhedron lights at the Los Angeles flagship of Restoration HardwareLA Times }

{ Textures: Kutahya tiles | Cubix wallpaper – Graham and Brown }
