Jill Malek’s Luci Della Citta hand screen printed wallpaper. How much do we love this pattern? The soft palate, the dots that look like out of focus snow flakes or lights in a hazy picture. It’s so calm and romantic, it’s simply beautiful.

Malek, based out of New York, specializes in print and pattern for anything from printed books and stationary to textiles and wallpaper. Check out her website for more beautiful prints!

I’m surprisingly loving this graphically stunning tableware by CTRLZAK art an design studio for Italian brand Seletti. The inspiration here is the bridging of traditional chinese porcelain and European design aesthetic. Why not? It works! It’s sweet, hip, and with it.

Good grief, when I read on Coco Cozy that this apartment was only 570 sq. ft., I thought…inconceivable! There are some teeny tiny apartments out there, but this one seems larger than life and filled with style. Love it!

I love this simple design. Although it can be used for magazine storage, I especially love it for firewood. Preferred over a weaved basket (not that there’s anything wrong with those), or the way that my parents just throw it all on the floor in one giant heap. The sheer disorganization of it all makes me antsy. This way, all your firewood can be neatlly stacked in an OCD-ish kind of way. Just how I like it.

I always wanted a canpoy bed when I was little. Screamed and kicked. Ok, not quite, but I my bedroom definitely wasn’t big enough to have one. Alas, it still isn’t. I find them so lovely and elegant. Definitely a statement piece. So I’m sharing with you some beautiful canopies we can all ‘ooooh’ and ‘aahh’ at, and hopefully one day I’ll be able to have a mammoth one. Yes!

These pictures show up on every blog these days – on floors, countertops, backsplashes…literally everywhere. And that is fine by me, because I love herringbone. Is it weird that I find it somewhat romantic? Herringbone is a lovely way of changing up your usual floor pattern from regular hardwood flooring or my least favourite, parquet.

Whether it is made of wood, stone tile, glass, or even a vinyl composite tile, it always adds a great texture to any application. Use different textures and different colours to really make it stand out.

The iconic St. Lawrence Market, North Building located in Downtown Toronto is up for a new look. Five architecture firms have been hard at work to come up with their designs. My favourite is the “Green” building, as there is almost a continuity from the existing South to the new North Building. What’s yours?
