Home Renovation Mood Board

If you have been following my instagram (Click here to follow) then you know that I recently got my Visa to live in the USA with my husband & step son. We bought our first home together a month ago and now that I am finally moving my stuff over I get to decorate and design the space like I've always dreamed.

I have a very minimalist style when it comes to home decorating and renovation ideas so when my husband and I decided to tackle renovations I knew it would be pretty simple as well as upgrade our home to a more modern feel. 

We just started renovating our office this past weekend and if you saw my instagram story you saw the whole process of turning a plain wall like this...

into an updated accent wall like this! (TA-DA!)

Now that we are on a home reno/decorating roll I thought I would share with you my mood board for our house! (PINTEREST INSPIRED)

All photos below I have pinned on my Home Decor board on Pinterest (I do not own any of the photos in my gallery below).

Looking forward to renovations and decorating all Summer long! What is your next reno/decor project!?

My current Home Mood Board 

My Wedding Dreamboard

Up until the beginning of January I was totally clueless as to what I really wanted for our wedding and what my options were! All I knew is that I wanted a more intimate wedding with our close family and friends to celebrate the moment with us! 

When all of the holidays ended and I had time to do some pinterest searching (which seriously turned out to be hours and hours of falling down a long dark wedding pins hole!), I finially decided on a few major details that I wanted for us! 

I have gathered up some screenshots of some of my favourite wedding ideas and posted them below! I figured I needed a place to house all of the ideas I liked and a blog post sounded like the best plan. 

 

I am super excited to sit down and start creating centerpieces for the tables as well as take a try at making the seating chart! Let me know if you have any helpful hints or ideas you think would work for us! I love the help! I have booked some of the wedding venues already and I am beyond excited for the planning process!

April Recap

Here are some of the posts I had uploaded this month! This was one of the craziest months I have had in a long time but I wouldn't change it for the world. I have grown so much with moving out on my own, travelling for work as well as having great get togethers with my friends! 

I would love to know what you did this April. Hope your month was amazing and full of great memories!

Weekend RoundUp: 03.05.16

Writing my weekend round up post is always bitter sweet! I love recapping what has happened during my days off and quality time with my friends and loved ones but it also reminds me of how fast it went and how much I am going to miss it! 

This weekend was pretty laid back, we didn't have many plans (other than family dinners) and sort of just went with the flow and did what we decided to in the moment. 

I decided to go minimal with my make-up on Saturday and skip the eyeliner..... WHAT! I am an addict to my thick black winged liner ( I even did a post on how I perfect my cateyes)! It was refreshing to change up my look for the day and it actually took quite a bit of time off my getting ready clock! 

Saturday afternoon we went out to visit my parents at their new house that they are currently remodelling. We had an awesome time there just hanging out and looking at all the hard work and progress that has come along since the last time I visited! 

I snapped a quick picture of the main staircase. I am in love with the look of the white classic stairs and the exposed wood of the walls! 

We ended the night with some family dinner and getting together with friends to watch the fights. Sunday morning we had some fun decorating plastic Easter eggs and lounging around the house, with coffee of course! 

We headed out for some lunch at a local sushi place. My OOTD consists of a denim top from Target, blush jeans from Material Girl Line  at The Bay, booties from Call it Spring & watch from Daniel Wellington.

I tried to add a bit of spring into the house and put out some new white tulips in my bathroom. I love the subtle change that it makes.. look forward to a decor post on Spring updates. 

Now winding down from a great weekend makes me feel ready to start another amazing week doing all things that I love. I cannot wait to share my journey with everyone.

Time for some Davids Tea -Movie Night tea and get myself ready for the week. 

I would love to hear about your  weekend! Post in the comments below!

February Recap

HomeSense Haul

Yesterday I took a quick trip to HomeSense to see all the new goodies they had in store for spring! Click here to read yesterdays spring trends post While at the store I could not resist picking up a few new goodies to brighten up my workspace. 

Here are the items I brought home with me;

Quote clipboard

This beautiful clip board comes with twelve different quotes that you can change out monthly or whenever you want! I love the gold foiled letters and the dreamy font that they display. There are a few quotes I am not so fond of but I do not mind spending the money on something that is interchangeable verse one picture (which I saw in store and almost picked up!). I plan on putting this on the wall with some more decorative wall art.
Price $12.99

Peachy Roses

These adorable fake roses are the perfect accessory to your desk. They are small enough that they wont be taking up too much space but just the right amount of flowers to make a statement. Every girl loves getting flowers but having fake flowers will be an eternal bouquet. Price $12.99

Gold & White Printed Pencils

I walked by the stationary section (like I always do) and looked around for some new notepads. While on the hunt I spotted an adorable set of pencils in different patterns. The pack came with twelve pencils in multiple different patterns. I will definitely be using these daily! Price $5.99

Mint Green Notepad  

This gigantic gold trimmed notepad is a perfect spot to write out my daily tasks and ideas. I am a sucker for stationary and when it comes in new pastel colours I just can't help myself! Price $5.99

I hope you enjoyed the few items I hauled from HomeSense and that you felt a bit of inspiration to add a few new little items to spring up your home.

Spring Decor Trends 2016

Spring is in the air (and if it's not then I am pretending it is)! I am so ready for the cold weather to melt away and bring the sun back out. I have never been one for winter time and the only reason I enjoy the colder months is because of the cozy indoor decor we can play with. 

I took a trip today into Home Sense and Winners  to take a look at what trends were popping up for home decor! I am in love with the pantone colour trends that are out currently. 

This post on instagram by HomeSenseCanada was what drew me in! 

I am usually only drawn to white/black/grey/gold decor but something about this quartz colour gets me. 

So off  I went to scope out what I could find in stores!

I bought a few things at Homesense which I will be posting a haul very soon! But the trends I saw today in the store were lovely!

 Lots of pastels to brighten up a space, wood and metal tones to define and contrast against the furs and flowers that can bring dimension and comfort into a space.

I am loving the look of rustic wood mixed with pastel paint and ombre drawers. I am working on a DIY of a nightstand (which I should be done soon!) and if I can master that DIY I would love to do a project incorporating drawers that ombre! 

What are you loving this spring for home decor and what is on your wishlist to buy?!
