Oh, Canada...

Our neighbors to the north have provided us with many things.
Justin Bieber.
Alex Trebek.
Bacon that is round
{which is really just ham, but poor canada...we'll let them have something}
I kid.

But I do not joke about how awesome Canadian House & Home magazine is.
If you don't get swoony, or at least a little inspired by these spaces...
well I just don't know if we are going to like each other. 

I know there are some people that are all "let a kids room just be a kids room"
but I think spaces for little ones can be fun and still fit in with the design of your home.
This room is a great example of that.

The color. the beadboard. the sink

luuuve the deeply stained stairs and railing..and all that paneling. l.o.v.e.

more dark stairs. major statement wallpaper

so dreamy...those puddling drapes, the sheepskin rug, wideplank floors. 

not safe for prying little hands in my house, but still love the look

i really heart zebra-inspired patterns with anything teal or turquoise.
although not sure how I feel about that particular shade of pink with the pinky-beige moldings and built-ins.
 it's feeling a little "grandma Ethel's florida house" to me. Maybe if they were crisp white or grey?

there isn't one thing I don't love about this.


I definitely don't know if I could do all that pattern in my own house,
 but still fun

One more day until the weekend lovey doveys :)


  1. Have never looked at that magazine, but man the Candains do have style. Love that kids room and the zebra rug. Wish my house looked like that.
