Once again I am drooling over what the ladies at The Coveteur have provided...this time it's a sneak peek into co-founder and designer of Cushnie et Ochs, Carly Cushnie's amazing New York city apartment...I love all the details and all the shoes (oh my do I ever love those!)...but I'll let the pictures do the talking...enjoy...

Little Details in an Instant...

This morning I woke up super early ~ the baby was kicking, the puppy was whining and I figured why not make good use of my time while the house is still relatively quiet (minus puppy) and take some detail shots in and around the house...and that's exactly what I did...even though a home is always a work in progress I have to say that now that the messy job of washroom renos is almost out of the way, I feel very settled and happy in our little abode, so why not share some of my favourite little details...enjoy...
...I am a sucker for making lists to keep organized, especially now that I have so many different things on the go pre-baby...my good friend Sharon gave me this lovely blue vintage notebook to keep track of all my "to dos"...
 ...found this adorable print at Flock, here in Ottawa, it's printed on a vintage dictionary page...
 ...magazines, another one of my guilty pleasures...I keep all of my recent editions and some of my old favourites displayed...
 ...just one of two things I managed to snag from the Jason Wu for Target collection...
 ...vintage glass containers used to store my jewellery...
 ...bathroom details...stay tuned for the big reveal coming soon...
 ...my peek-a-boo owl in our new bathroom...
 ...I like to display the make-up I use the most and keep it handy ~ I am especially fond of the vintage glass jar that was large enough to store my most-frequently-used eye shadows...it has gorgeous gold and white detailing along the sides...
 ...my dress bust and my treasured Alexander McQueen scarf ~ Thanks Julie
J'adore...oodles and oodles of pillows...
...and finally one of my absolute favourite little things in my house, my beautiful little puppy, Bubak...

Interior Lovin'...

Now that our washrooms are finally done (stay tuned for the post of the final product coming soon...) I am able to just enjoy some of the lovely interior design blogs I frequent instead of constantly scrutinizing every detail to see if anything would fit in with our renos...that being said, here are some of my favourite images for the week of some really amazing and lovely spaces...enjoy...
 ...details, details, details...
 ...what can I say I am sucker for colour...
 ...one word: fabulous...
 ...more details...
 ...not a huge fan of darker woods but this works and looks amazing...
 ...loving the red details...
 ...ahhh books my kryptonite...
 ...even more adorable details...
 ...I have never been brave enough to get a patterned couch but this one is divine...
 ...what's not to love here...seriously...
 ...pink...
 ...I want to be here right now...
 ...simplicity...
...simplicity part II...
...still nursing a cold and feeling kinda miserable, at least I am at home in Toronto with my parents where my mom can fuss over me and make me feel like a little kid again because let's be frank, we all need a little fussing from our mommies now and again...am I right? Happy weekend everyone...

Little things...

I am nursing a cold, which really stinks considering I managed to stay healthy all winter long, when one doesn't mind being bundled in bed with a good book or great re-runs...but no, now that the sun is shinning and the weather is warmer I get my first real cold (misery and whining included)...so to make myself feel better here are a few images that make me smile...stay healthy everyone and enjoy the first signs of spring...
 ...black and white...
 ..the beach...
 ...sunset ~ sunrise...
 ...string...
 ...speechless...
 ...dive...
 ...tea cups...
 ...tea...
 ...leap...
 ...I dream...
 ...beauty...
 ...longing...
 ...o.k...
...your voice...
