Beautiful Home Tour :: Vancouver Residence

I am completely enamoured with Pinterest and now it would seem the same can be said for Houzz! I simply adore looking at beautiful homes and interior design for decor inspiration and Houzz is a great resource.  
My design aesthetic is classic and timeless with a nod to the coastal influences often found in Cape Cod and the Hamptons. I just cannot get enough of this style, so you will find my Houzz ideabooks and Pinterest boards bursting at the seams with them.
I found this lovely home by Kerrisdale Design Inc when I was searching for dreamy bedrooms and the entire home is so lovely I had to share it!  

What interior design style do you favour?

Wanderlust :: Paris

My wanderlust is in full force and the current destination is Paris. Along with most people, the city of light has been at the top of my city break wish list for as long as I can remember. So I am beyond thrilled that in a month I will be able to check Paris off my wanderlust list and my winter bucket list! I am so excited to finally see Paris, I absolutely cannot wait!
If you are lucky enough to have visited this beautiful city, please feel free to dispense any pearls of Paris wisdom that you have :) If there are any sights, landmarks, restaurants, shops and anything else that we simply must see and do, I would love to know! 

Where would you like to jet off to at the moment?

My 2014 and Thoughts for 2015

I love to look back at photos, to reminisce and think about all of the exciting and happy times that have been. 2014 was a lovely year full of fond sweet memories that shall be forever cherished. 

Reflecting on the past year makes me extremely excited for the new year ahead and for all of the wonderful things that may be. 
As I mentioned in this post from January 2013, I don't make New Year's resolutions, instead I try to make every day count, have a zest for life and celebrate the everyday occasions throughout the year. However I still don't fully make the most out of every situation and there have been some opportunities that I have shied away from. Well not anymore! I want to remember to seize the day, embrace everything this beautiful life has to offer and not let my insecurities shield me from joy. 
In a few months time I will be participating in a sporting event that I have dreamt about for as long as I can remember. The very thought of it is exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure, but I am certainly going to give it my all and enjoy the process. I will tell you about it at the end of the month, once I have had a taste of the training! 
Here is to burning luxurious candles, using lovely sheets, wearing beautiful lingerie and seizing every delightful day this year.

Winter Bucket List

I am having so much fun making seasonal bucket lists and crossing off all of the lovely things and winter is no exception. I love creating new traditions to take part in for years to come and making the most of the seasons. 

As we are a few weeks into Winter and Christmas Eve is just a week away, I have already ticked a few things off such as finding and decorating the tree, making mulled wine and visiting a Christmas market. Now I cannot wait to start ticking off the rest! 

Go on a city break 
Find a signature winter cocktail
Visit a Christmas market 
Go ice skating 
Make mulled wine
Create a Christmas playlist
Find and decorate the perfect Christmas tree 
Take the Christmas tree down on Twelfth night and fill the house with spring flowers
Make marmalade 
Get back into jogging 
Watch classic Christmas movies 
Make sugar cookies
Find a new Christmas party dress
Create a a photo gallery wall 

What is on your list of fun things to do this winter and Christmas and do you have any traditions that make you happy?
