A hit of hipster with a dash of whimsical? Sign my up. I can not get enough of my current style obsession, so I decided to throw in an inspirational Indie-vintage post just for shits and giggles. Every image listed above gives me the warm and fuzzies. Don't you just want to get lost in an enchanted forest, make a rose crown, and skip through tall grass into the setting sun? Yes, yes, YES!

The Holiday Cheer Series: 2013

I'm a sucker for a good 'Theme' tree each Christmas season, and this may just be the cutest thing I've ever had the pleasure of decorating.

If you're looking to step outside the box this season, why not pay homage to your inner child who believed in magic and fairy dust? This sweet look comes alive with soft greens, champagne golds and butter yellows. To achieve the whimsical garden feel, we draped soft white orchids like garland on a flocked tree, and strategically placed cream calla lillies in between certain to branches to make it look like there is indeed a garden growing from within the tree. To add some sparkle, glittered green holly, leaf ornaments, and golden birds were layered in. The garden look was complete with dragonflies and butterflies, and of course, the fairies.

If you're not feelin' the rather youthful theme, the bones of this design looks darling with or without whimsy accents. The softness of the green, white and yellow envelopes you in warmth, which is a great option for those who don't appreciate the 'high-contrast-bold-colour' {I'm lookin at you, red & green!} Christmas decor but still want it to feel classic.

This look is tailor-made for any home with rustic influences. Here's a few spaces that best suits this colour scheme;


Hope you enjoyed!

Stay classy,

The Holiday Cheer Series: 2013

November has arrived, and I'm instantly in Christmas mode. I have no shame.

The main ingredient to my madness {and thus enabling my addiction} is my job, where every year we close the shop doors for Halloween and completely transform the showroom into a winter wonderland. By the time November 1st rolls around, I'm already covered in glitter and humming a Christmas classic.

In attempt to help you ease in to the impending holiday season, I'll be showcasing different on trend looks for Christmas 2013. By the time December rolls around, you'll be fully equipped and practically spoon fed with plenty seasonal inspiration for your own abode.

Layers of turquoise and celadon blue, popped with crisp white, give a twist to the classic blue scheme {usually paired with silver}. If you're looking to update your decor and impress your neighbors, this unexpected pairing of blues goes a step beyond the current Christmas trends. The punch of turquoise instantly adds life and vibrancy, where the white & celadon soothes the space, creating a perfect balance.

If you're a lover of shabby chic or Cape Cod cottage design, pair this scheme with rustic woods in washed out tones, and layer whites on whites {easily accomplished with dishware and linens} to enhance this look.

Craving more inspiration, here are some examples of different expressions of this colour scheme;
