Current Crush: Tulip Tables

I've always had a soft spot for mid century modern and scandinavian design, so it's no wonder why I love tulip tables... They're such a timeless design that can be styled in so many different ways. In my opinion they're the perfect table for anyone moving into their first place or for someone living in a smaller space! Here are a few different ways that you can style a tulip table:

Last but certainly not least, here are my favourite budget friendly tulip tables. Whether you're going for a more feminine vibe or a mid century modern look, you can't go wrong with this style of table.

Green With Envy

I know I should have probably saved this post for St. Patricks Day but I couldn't wait! Even though muted greens are all the rage right now I still have a major soft spot for hunter and emerald greens. They're such a bold statement and I applaud anyone who is able to decorate with them... And by decorate with them, I mean successfully decorate with them.. i've definitely seen some terrible green rooms in my time. Here are a few of my favourite green rooms that I would consider a success:  

I love the eclectic mix within this room. Also gold and green is a fantastic colour combo. 

This is one of my favourite greens. It's more muted but still makes a statement. 

Black and white might just be my favourite accents colours with green (sorry gold). 

...again... black, white and green is so chic. 

Let's just take a minute to admire the beauty of this tile.

Last but not least, is this darling boy's room. It's masculine but also preppy and fun. What instantly sold me was the HBC blanket and plaid pillow.

Are you wanting to add a little green to your life but are too scared to commit to green walls? Try one of these great statement pieces:

I know, I know, it's been awhile! HOWEVER, while I was away, I graduated from my residential decorating program so i'm officially a decorator and i've been working on starting my own business. Needless to say, i've been quite busy. Anyways, I thought i'd share with you a project that i'm currently working on. It's a 1910 house that is getting flipped so I wanted to keep it fairly traditional and neutral for future buyers. 

PS. While I was on my little hiatus I finished my website

Pinspiration: Outdoor Living

To celebrate the fact that it's finally summer, I thought i'd share a little outdoor living pinspiration. I've been spending every possible minute outside because the weather has been glorious lately! 

P.S- we bought these at Target for our patio and they make the patio look so magical at night.

Anyways enjoy the inspiration and go enjoy the beautiful weather!

Bedroom Redesign Epiphany

Guyssss, i've been in the midst of trying to redesign my bedroom for months now and I finally had a design epiphany. I was debating redoing my room in mint green or icy blue but nothing felt right. If you walk into my room you'll see different colour swatches all over the walls, it's like living in a giant easter egg. Anyways, I went down to Fargo this weekend and came across Nate Berkus fabrics at Jo- Ann fabrics and I had my ah ha moment. THANK YOU NATE BERKUS. 

Another thing I want to do to my room is find better storage solutions. My room is quite tiny so i'd like to add a bookshelf to the wall to create more floor space. I also want to downsize my current standing book shelf. 

Last but definitely not least, my desk chair needs to be reupholstered. I'm definitely thinking of going with a dark blue. I fell in love with this chair from Target:

Anyways, this is just a bit of my design plan. I can't wait until I actually start painting.

The Lil' House's Lighting Guide: Chandeliers

I love a classic chandelier, especially when they're in unexpected places like the bedroom or bathroom. However, there are so many new modern types of chandeliers that are gorgeous too. So folks, it's time for part three of The Lil' House's Lighting Guide. I may have the song 'Chandelier' by Sia on repeat right now, and I expect you to be listening to it too when you read this. I'm gonna swing from the CHANDELIERRRRRRR....

Current Crush: Velvet Arm Chairs

My current desk chair is a chair that was passed down to me from my uncle, who inherited it from my grandparents. I love the chair but the fabric is truly ugly (my uncle had it reupholstered in an ugly blue 90's fabric when he inherited it). Lately i've been thinking about getting it professionally reupholstered so of course i've been browsing Pinterest for inspiration. While I love bold trendy patterned fabrics, I feel like I should go with a solid fabric that will stand the test of time. So of course, i've gravitated towards velvet, because well ... what's more chic than a velvet armchair?

Here are a few velvet armchairs that make my heart swoon:
