As I look out my window and see all the snow it is more than a bit strange to be thinking about spring- yet the media preview invites and product pitches are filling my inbox and it’s a welcome distraction from the fact that my new dress pants are already salt stained.
We’re working on a bathroom right now in North York that is certainly going to feel like spring. With a palette of green, white and yellow, it will be fresh, youthful and modern. Dust is still flying around in the space but the home stretch is very near- so I’m shopping accessories in sunny colours. But first-
Here’s a little Instagram sneak peek of the bathroom design. Accent tiles, white subway tiles, some modern chrome fixtures. There’s a floating white vanity with custom floating shelves on the other side that are screaming for some accessories. This is my favourite part of projects- the finishing touches! Enjoy this little hint of spring below courtesy of West Elm, Crate and Barrel, CB2 and Umbra.
This project was such a joy to work on. I worked with Natalie Bahadur, Senior Web Editor at Style At Home magazine to transform her condo from very blah to totally glam. I made a new friend in the process and discovered some pretty fantastic resources along the way. Here is our shopping list and enjoy the video!

If you have been following my posts you will know I am working on a fun project with Style At Home magazine. You can read about it here, here and here.
Well since I reviewed the original design with Natalie (pictured here) we’ve made some changes:
Natalie felt grey couches would be a better option for her lifestyle. So instead of white we have selected the Goodwin Sofa from West Elm (#1). I found it at an incredible price (and in nearly new condition) on Craigslist (what what!). I love it for the colour & modern angular lines. I’m excited about (#2) these mirrors from Moveline Liquidators. Gently used from a hotel suite it has also helped keep us on budget. For a bit of softness against the lines of the sofa we’re going with a pair of these tables (#3) again from West Elm. We may spray them different colour- I’ll decide when they are in the space. And again, to add some softness, I am in love with (#4) this Marimekko wallpaper from Newwall. Maria from Newwall helped convince me this deserves an entire wall in the space. Cannot wait!
Keep reading about the process on Natalie’s blog and stay tuned for the final reveal.
