finds … I heart coat trees

There is something about a standing coat rack (coat tree) that it so beautiful and sculptural, yet practical (which I love).  Coat trees add color, dimension and texture to an otherwise open space, creating a warm, welcoming entry.  It’s an opportunity to add color without the commitment of painting an entire room and the freedom to mix metals with woods, paint and other materials. The statement of a coat tree can be as bold or as subtle as you wish. I have been shopping for a coat tree for the last 6 years, yet I have never purchased one.  We now have the space so it’s time to narrow my search down. Here are my top picks in making a bolder statement. This year, I will buy one… 1. Blu dot;  2. Room & Board;  3.Overstock.com;  4. IKEA;  5. Room & Board;  6.

news… hello again

It has been a while, but it’s time to get back at it.  Since my last posting I’ve kept busy moving into a new house, new city, new COUNTRY and most importantly welcoming a new baby.  Well, new baby is now 2 years old and its time that I take back a little time for myself, my love for design and all things organized!! Now based in Seattle, Washington, I’m a wife, mom of three, and designer with Canadian roots (hence my spelling).  With this blog, I hope to share my design ideas, projects that I am working on and all things that keep me inspired.
