finds … kitchen color

Currently my kitchen is gray, on gray, on white, on gray.  I love the simplicity of it, but in between the rain and the rain, I’m looking for some sunshine!  I’m looking to add some color to my kitchen without changing the color of my kitchen.  Changing up the accessories in a room can instantly alter the mood of a space without a major overhaul. As always, I start my search with ETSY looking for some fresh, original products to add interchangeable color to my kitchen. I’ve noticed a trend in my search… and may have to write a future blog posting on ‘paint dipping’.   I absolutely love it.  Here are my top picks for adding instant color and SUNSHINE to your kitchen.

finds … welcome winter ‘wool-fully’

Well, I’ve been wearing my snowboarding socks for a few weeks now, which only means one thing (regretfully, I’m not snowboarding), it’s cold outside! I wanted to share a few of my favorite finds to help bring some warmth into your home.  I love wool for its ability to add texture, warmth and colour into a space.  I love that it’s being used in so many unconventional ways, and I’ve noticed that I’ve often included one wool piece in my past ‘ETSY find’ postings (bowls, baskets, acorns).  Here are a few of my favorite winter wool accessories. a.

finds … 6 reasons why a wireless audio system will work for us…

As an avid music lover I’m a little embarrassed to say that I’ve been living without a dedicated audio system for years now.  I am currently limited to listening to music via an iPod, a computer or an Xbox.  With a makeover of our living room on the horizon I thought I would take this opportunity to sell my wife on including a Sonos System in her design plan.  Below are 6 reasons why I think the Sonos Wireless HiFi System will work for us: Small footprint. We have a very small house overflowing with 2 adults, 2 young children and 2 large dogs. We just don’t have the space for a standard setup with a receiver and bookshelf or floor standing speakers.  At 8.50 x 14.40 x 4.80 in. We should be able to find the room in our living room for the PLAY:5. Kid friendly.  Ok, the actual components themselves may not be kid friendly, but their size and lack of wires makes this system a lot more practical with kids in the house.  …
