Coffee, tea and me...

Some neat spaces and places where I would love to enjoy a cup of tea, snuggle up with a good book or just people watch...just because...enjoy...

Outdoor Oasis: Before & After...

It seems that my husband has been nesting as of late...sweetly he insisted on doing an entire overhaul of our little balcony so I can have a small outdoor oasis to hang out in when our wee one decides to make an appearance (and before)...on a very strict budget (and I mean VERY strict), I have to say the space looks pretty amazing but most importantly it's incredibly inviting and comfortable...here are some before and after shots of the project...enjoy...

Before...
 After...
Welcome...
A creature in the midst...
 We added a new floor (from IKEA) which covered the horrible mish-mash original flooring...
 Our new floor didn't reach all the way to the end of our balcony so we used various plants to cover the gap...
 Serenity now...
 My very first watering can ~ I'm not kidding...
 Hanging plants are lovely and add extra colour to your space...
 Details...
 More details...
 Fish-eye view of the space...
Another fish-eye view...

 Afternoon tea...
Loving our new space...

Outdoor Living...

Summer is officially in the air...and I say this because we had some pretty bad weather while in Europe, so I am even more excited now to come home to sunny skies, light breezes and that fresh smell only summer can provide...so as an ode to summer lovin' living I put together a little visual inspiration of some amazing outdoor spaces...I realize that living in a city which is land-locked (other than a river and a canal) some of these spaces are a bit unrealistic...but one can still dream right? Enjoy...
The colours, the patterns, the EVERYTHING~oh my!

The pink details on the left are adorable...

Loving the natural elements of both the above and below...
As much as I love colour I still feel that you can't beat the simplicity and charm of white...

Ocean breeze anyone? Yes, please!
Aren't this drool-worthy? It makes me want to go out buy some more plants and re-do our own little balcony in our place...hmmm a weekend project perhaps? Stay tuned...
