A Fancy Fine Bedroom

duvet_03The home of Ashley Ording has always been of great inspiration to me. Not only is she an amazing fashion stylist – both personally and professionally – she also has an incredible interior design eye. Ryan and I have been doing a spring clean and reorganizing our apartment, so I’ve been spying homes that make my mouth water with interior styling delight. If you are ever in need of colourful and quirky inspiration for your home, Ashley is the girl to look to. While her walls and majority of furniture in her bedroom may be white, the pops of colour paired with interesting furniture and playful decorative pieces make for a clean, aesthetically pleasing home that has a ton of character. You just know when looking at this bedroom that a boring gal liveth not here.

Vintage Charm

_MG_3414I follow a few design blogs looking for inspiration, but mostly making myself crazy seeing those with beautiful old homes that have been so well preserved. While a lot of the interior styling I see is lovely, a lot is not to my taste, but I do come across a few that I fall absolutely in love with and that I feel reflect my aesthetic (even if I don’t have the resources to make it happen just yet). This home in Vancouver BC being one of them. I must admit, I’ve become a fan of all white walls and clean, minimal spaces (not too minimal), but I think it’s important to have pops of colour and things around the home that make it feel like it’s actually a home and not a model one. This home feels like it has all those things…minimal, clean, colourful and lived-in with it’s quirky decor and vintage charm. (source)
