Easy Breezy Boho Day


There is nothing better than a gauzy dress, a light breeze and a few open hours.  This is not how I'll be spending my day, but I sure wish it was.  Today I'm running errands with kids in tow, prepping meals and doing a large back-log of laundry. Maybe I'll keep my eyes open for a gauzy dress while I'm running errands.

The Home as Studio

The photo below of John Lennon and Yoko Ono quietly writing together in a communal space got me thinking about transitional rooms that provide a haven for creative pursuits.  When designing my own home, it is my goal that almost every room be at the ready for a painting project, journal entry, quiet reading or some other creative endeavour.  I love when rooms call out for creative play and thoughtful art.

Foot Stools, Poofs and Such

I love all the low lying stools, poofs, ottomans, tiny tables and such that I see perched in these living rooms and parlours.  I especially like the look of a traditional coffee table set-up with stools and poofs tucked in to serve as extra seating or movable surfaces for drinks, food or feet. They seem ready to jump in at any moment and lend a helping hand.
