Wild - Animal Prints Done Oh So Right

We’ve seen it pass through fashion decades and implement itself into our interiors. If done correctly, animal print can be used as a neutral and a perfect starting point for a room or outfit.


A scarf is an easy way to insert a pop of leopard into your outfit

The boldness and contrast of the Zebra stands out infront of a softly patterned and bright wall.

Polka Dots and Leopard Spots. Why Not? looks great and rules are made to be broken.

a few punches of colour and pattern.

A stark room now has character with cowhide chairs.

Softer contrast makes this top very wearable

I love the blue on the chairs. They would just be floating in this white space if it weren't for this grounding zebra rug.

Another simple way to interest to an outfit. The blacks and greys are a nice change.

Black and White with a bold punch of Yellow

Neutral and Monochromatic- Elegant. Dark walls are such a perfect backdrop.

Love the unexpected mix of color; soft blue walls and the moss green throw cushions! The little coffee table adds sparkle and mirrors the zebra pattern. Lucite legs on that traditional chair are amazing.

Looks amazing when paired with simple, bold accessories.

Soft greens and minimal furnishings (love that little table for even more visual texture)

Too cute.

Orange and Leopard! I love how layered this look is, so rich.

More Orange and Leopard...

...and even more orange and leopard. I really love this combo! (Umm and the kelly green handbag is pretty fantastic too)

History ... Friday?

Danish Design! Why not?

We have talked about Danish Designer Arne Jacobsen before on this blog with his magnificent Swan Chair. Let’s talk about another one of Denmark’s masters, Verner Panton.

Verner Panton attended school at The Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen. He studied Architecture but practiced many disciplines of design. His designs were very advanced and he made use of “futuristic” materials including plastics. In 1960 Panton created the ‘S’ chair. It was the first single-form injection-moulded chair. This chair is very popular still today.

Here is some more Verner Panton Design.




We are heading off to Copenhagen in a few months for a quick trip and a family wedding. Check out the cute little apartment we found to rent in Torvegade! I can't wait to take in some great Scandinavian design while I'm there.



Tofino Weekend

I have been a very inconsistent blogger. I apologize. Been working some long hours but had time for a quick weekend escape to Tofino and Ucluelet. We stayed at the Black rock resort. Did some surfing, beach combing and whale watching.

Enjoy some pictures of the our accommodation at the Black Rock Resort and trips to Incinerator Rock, Chesterman beach and the swells of the pacific rim ocean.

The Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet was spectacular! The whole resort was built into a rock inlet (as you may have guessed). The building featured curving walls, natural west coast materials and thoughtful lighting design. I loved the concrete caste walls that looked like wood and my favourite feature was the driveway vestibule with its peak-a-boo lighting.

I hope to be a bit more consistent in my blogging. Thanks for your
