Winter has its ups – beautiful snowfalls, downhill skiing and hot chocolate – and its downs – lack of sun, limited activities and harsh weather. But, we are making the most of this season by indulging in a little culture – in the form of contemporary photography. (more…)

If you are looking to make a decorative statement, Farrow & Ball’s wallpaper is for you. This specialty company was founded in Dorset, England in the 1930s. Each of their fine wallpapers is crafted using a traditional block print technique to apply their ‘Zero VOC’ environmentally friendly water-based paint to FSC-approved paper. The result - wallpapers with remarkable sensuous textures and delicate appearances that are durable and washable.
We are loving the latest collection, called The Rosslyn Papers, which features a charming reproduction of a nineteenth century English cotton print with a sweet botanical design. We think it is a classic design – with a funky side. There is a wide and eclectic choice of colour combinations to choose from - calming neutrals, pretty pastels and rich darks. And they are enhanced with chalky matte and shimmering metallic accent colours. Perfect for a hallway, boudoir or even a feature wall.
Let your creativity run wild.

Remember being at the beach all day and getting just a little too much sun? Remember how good it felt when your mom rubbed you down with Noxzema and wrapped you in a towel? And remember how you thought it was the softest towel in the world while you napped in the backseat during the car ride home?
Well, you were wrong because we recently discovered what happens when the most luxurious towels meet a giant cuddly blanket. You get a Yumi & Laurie BlanQuette. Made from organic cotton and bamboo, these oversized blankets are not only eco-friendly but are so absolutely stunning, works of art you might say, you’ll want one for every room in your house.
Perfect for cuddling on the couch (we should mention that they are big enough for two) or watching the sunset from the boat, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one.
Who said we’re too old for a blanQuette!
