Lambert & Fils - Product Launch for Mobilia Furniture

I was invited to attend the product launch for



 for Mobilia Furniture & I am so glad that I did.

Lambert & Fils created a collection exclusively for Mobilia, called CLIFF.  
Designer Samuel Lambert drew inspiration from nature & mid century modern simplicity to create this lighting collection, using solid brass, steel, cast aluminum & enamel elements.









Each piece is created in Montreal by one of the twelve people who make up the Lambert & Fils Studio.

Nothing is mass produced as they prefer to create with real hands on approach to ensure careful production.

Which piece do you like? 

The wall sconces are definitely going to be making their way in to my new home.

Wednesday Wants on Friday - Wall Sconces in the Kitchen

Two days late on this one, but better late than never...right?!

For the next instalment of Wednesday Wants I have been thinking a lot about he kitchen & more specifically it's lighting. I have become a huge fan of wall sconces in the kitchen.
My thought process for my next kitchen, is a kitchen that doesn't really look like a kitchen. The gas range & sink being the only real 2 indications that you are in a kitchen! Hopefully a floor to ceiling window to let in lots of natural light in the day & then many wall lights for night lighting & effect. 













What do you think of wall lighting in the kitchen?

A Commission


I was contacted by the lovely  Dominique over at Comfy Cozy Couture & she has commissioned me to hand paint some fabric for a project. I won't tell you exactly what I'm making with it, I'll leave that to her.  Here's a small glimpse of what I'm up to.


This little number is inspired by Pierre Frey.
If you are interested in having me create a one of a kind fabric for you drop me a line I'd love to create some magic for you!

Until tomorrow.

Indigo Spring & Summer 2014 Preview - Part 1

Well it's the beginning of a new week & I have promised myself, that all you will see a new post everyday this week. 

I was invited to the Indigo Spring & Summer 2014 preview of all of the great new items they will be having in store for you to buy up.  Certain Indigo locations have also teamed up with some amazing Etsy shops to sell their products in store, but I'll get to that tomorrow. You won't be disappointed!

There was so much to see home, fashion, outdoor entertaining & some great stationary items. So I'm going to break down my faves from each category.

HOME


These 3 doggie prints are so freaking adorable, they would a great whimsical touch to a powder room.
They also make me want to go to Paris & have wine & a ride a bike with a baguette sticking out of my basket!


These dipped pillows are great if you want to give a slight nod to the nautical vibe at the cottage.


I know these are not new, but I do enjoy the simplicity of these mugs.


These pieces would be so fun to incorporate into your Easter tablescape.
I would have the large bunny dish hold a beautiful bar of soap in the powder room for when guest come over for Easter dinner.


I must get my hands on these gorgeous cloth napkins. The colourful water coloured pattern instantly makes you feel springy & happy. They also come in a blue/green colourway, shown the photo above.

FASHION


This lightweight linen scarf in a water coloured effect must be mine!


Pastels are an instant sign of spring & you can put a ton of stuff into these totes.


Along with the scarf, this buttery soft leather clutch in smokey amethyst will somehow finds it way into my wardrobe.


This would also make a great Mother's Day or birthday gift for the fashionable gal in your life.

OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING


 Wouldn't a whole bunch of these terrariums be awesome hanging inside the spokes of an umbrella? Some could have succulents & other could have tea lights. Perfect of an evening party.


Awesome pieces for a self serve bar for said party above. Make up a large batch of a tasty drink & let all of the guests help them selves.


Get all of you amazing drink & party ideas from this little book. 

STATIONARY


These gold embossed leather journals make me want to put pen to paper.



 These are adorable note card that the kids could use for writing thank yous.


As you know Indigo has a HUGE card & gift wrap section, but these new selections are to die for. The colour, patters & textures are so so good. If you need to do some wrapping go get some of this stuff pronto.

While enjoying all that Indigo has to come I enjoyed a delicious drink of peach nectar, soda water with a handful of blueberries floating around - Super Yummy!
