My {Brass} Wise Owl

Remember on Monday I shared how Gold & Brass Animals are trending these days? That little ‘ol post sparked a conversation between Jen at Will & Bequeath and I – well, one thing lead to another and here’s my new brass wise owl.

Isn’t he handsome? I love him. Thanks Jen!

Pop over to Will & Bequeath for more brass figurines… I’m also really liking the brass armadillo.

Gold & Brass Animals {Love it!}

Has anyone else noticed the obsession with gold and brass animals recently? Tag it a spinoff from Harry Allen’s gold pig bank or not, I’m loving the gold and brass animalia we’re seeing these days. Of course, the real thing is always fabulous…

However, these DIY gold pieces are just as fun and whimsy…

Outdoor Living Brings the Indoors Out

Creating outdoor living rooms has been growing in popularity in recent years and like many, it’s on my backyard wish list too. Recently I been seeing this notion taken to a whole new level – folks are  bringing the indoors out – literally. It’s gorgeous indeed.

I’m thinking it’s not practical for everyday backyard fun however, why not go all out if you’re having a summer soiree with friends and family. What do you think? For more indoors out inspiration, feel free to pop over to my outliving pin board or earlier posts; the perfect pergola, beautiful backyards or outdoor cabanas.

Ginger Jars

I have a love / hate relationship with ginger jars. While many are absolutely gorgeous, in a weird way they remind me of cremation jars. Have you ever had the same thought?

That said, I do love how a single enormous size ginger jar really makes a statement -

I also love them filled with fresh flowers…

Style at Home {Summer 2012 Trends Report}

Style at Home recently released their Summer Trends Report and oddly enough, I’m really appreciating Country Colours as a favourite. The earth toned colours which are part of their new paint line with Beauti-Tone has really caught my interest. The entire paint collection is calming and has a timeless appeal to it. I think you will agree, have a look at the Country Colours.

S@H Summer Trends Country Colours - Odd Couple

S@H Summer Trends Country Colours - Bountiful Beauty

S@H Summer Trends Country Colours - Staring at the Sea

S@H Summer Trends Country Colours - Monochrome

S@H Summer Trends Country Colours - Chateau Chic

Charming, no? So, whether you’re a cottage go’er or not, thank you Style at Home for making cottage-style a little easier to embrace – at home or the cottage! Wondering what the other two trends are? Aegean Blue, inspired by this season’s fashion and Kilim, a call to traditional Turkish decor.

Beautiful Blue {Love it!}

Remember I shared that I’m coveting blue lately? Well, I saw this instagram photo via Meredith Heron yesterday and I was instantly captivated. Such a classic colour combination, yet its fresh and current. Love it!
