Just Because


There is nothing I love better then getting my hubs a little something to let him know I am thinking of him. Sometimes I feel like he is working so hard to be a good dad and husband and I don't always tell him how much I appreciate it. You know it's funny, as your family grows and you get "busy" it's easy to let the things you once did and said with your significant other to fall by the waist side. Being a parent is all consuming and it's not that I don't love it because I truly do but at times it can feel like your relationship is taking a bit of a backseat to the children. 
I'm sure any parent would agree that it doesn't mean your not happy by any mean's but when the thought does cross your mind it's a good reminder to make sure you try and carve out a little time for you and your loved one.  If date night isn't possible then let them know that you care and appreciate them through words and acts of kindness. As soon as I saw these beautiful wood watches online I knew that it would be the perfect way to let my husband know I recognize all he does and give him a little something special. Now hey, let's get one thing straight- I by no means think that you can only show appreciation through material gifts however, if you are in the position to get your loved one a little something then I say why not! Moms and dads are usually last on the list to buy things for themselves so it's nice to get a little something, but of course it's not nessicary. 
I'm excited to share with you guys that I have teamed up with Jord Wood Watches to give one of you guys $100 dollars off a watch of your choice, however everyone that enters will receive $25 dollars off- the contest runs until July 16th and you can enter HERE! Also this is the exact watch I got for my husband incase you are interested in the same one and they also have a beautiful women's collection.

Home Envy

I hope everyone has been having a lovely long weekend, I know I have sure have! It's been a little crazy over here with my sons 5th birthday party but worth every second. I just had to share this space with you today for my Home Envy series because when I came across this home designed by Brian Paquette Interiors I fell in love!

It's layered with the softest textures and with the low colour contrast it makes it feel so inviting and serene. I just want to curl up on that sectional sofa with a coffee and magazine and just relax- I hope you all enjoy!

5 Ways To Update Your Entry


Well now that it is safe to say that summer is here it's a great time to get outside and spruce up the front of your home! There are some really simple ways you can update your entry without breaking the bank and giving you that welcoming space for your guests, and yourself! 

I think one of my favourite, high impact things to do to the front of a home is to paint the front door. This is such an easy and quick way to make an impact and freshen thing up. Another great way to create a focal on your home is to flank your front door with some beautiful tall planters, this will really draw the eye and create uniformity especially if you have an off entered entry. 

I also love to layer outdoor rugs and mats to create a cozy look. Finding a nice stripe or geometric and then layering a textured mat over top really looks great and helps make your door more welcoming. Adding a statement wreathe and some other smaller layered planters with some pattern will help finish the look and really pull things together.

Best,

A Bright and Airy Living Room

As you all know I am a big fan of airy and fresh spaces. We spend so much time in our homes it really is important to love where you live. But design doesn't have to be complicated, simple pieces with clean lines, lots of texture and a few pretty accessories are all you need and your well on your way to creating a space that you truly want to be in.

When I came across this beautiful space designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel I knew I had to share it with you all. I love the unexpected pops of colour, the simple clean lines and how it feels very cozy and inviting yet clean and minimal at the same time. I am also swooning over that entryway set up with the half door and beautiful sconce lights and gallery wall.

Guys, I am trying to work towards living more minimalistically aka ditch the clutter and only be surrounded by things we love and have purpose but gosh darn it it's hard!! I just love seeing spaces like this because it really inspires me to try and declutter and get rid of things we don't need or use.







Best,
Lauren

Lovely Layers

Well I have to say, after taking a week off from blogging for a much needed break I am feeling motivated and inspired and I have some fun posts coming up for all of you lovely blog readers! Today I wanted to talk about creating layers on your bed for the warmer months where you don't need quite as much bedding when you sleep.
We have always used a feather duvet which we love and is so cozy but once June hits it definitely feels like too much weight on the bed for a comfortable nights sleep.  So once those warmer nights start I like to switch out some of the fabrics on the bed for more light breathable materials. I am a big fan of bamboo sheets and how soft and thin they are for sleeping. They are cooling and help keep you comfortable all night. My mom bought us these white bamboo sheets as a gift and they have been heaven! However make sure you wash in cold water and dry with low heat because they definitely shrink!
I am so in love with this beautiful blue quilt from Garnet Hill. If you read my spring bedroom tour post you will know I am loving blue right now and how serene it feels. This quilt is nice and light which makes it a great layering piece yet it has enough weight to be warm in the night. The mix of blues and whites are so pretty and the circle motif is such a lovely touch and makes it feel more modern. It's funny because I usually don't find myself drawn to quilts but as soon as I saw this I fell in love with the print. Something else I have been enjoying is making our bed really simply on a day to day basis. There is something so fresh about minimal pillows and simple tucked bedding. I just love how pretty the tassel Pepper B Design pillow looks there solo front and centre.
Best,
Lauren Elizabeth
