} Shade on Shape



Oh, the power of a pop of color in a monochrome room! Sure, the tone on tone or black&white color ideas have their power and benefits, BUT I’m a fan for color (my living room IS turquoise, after all.), and mostly great color combos. Call it an ex-graphic designer default setting, perhaps…

Shade on Shape‘s emphasis is all about simple yet powerful (thru color) home objects. Vibrant pops! :)

Coasters are such a simple affordable everyday life item, but can also easily add color and style to your living quarters! Totally digging these colorful and graphic re-purposed ceramic tile ones by Tilissimo!

} Boots N Gus



Boots N Gus takes vintage to a whole new level by pairing it with recycling and reusing.

Those beautiful vintage plates and kitchenware can have a new life in the form of lighting: brilliant way to upcycle! Also, bird feeders and hanging planters. Lovin’ it all!

} Pipes



Always loves the raw metal industrial look in decor. It usually bring a space to another level, so touches of it are always welcomed, I think!

Stella Blue Designs offers home products made (in part) out of iron plumbing pipes. There, you’ll find clothing racks, lighting and bookshelves! Oh my, what a beautiful idea!

Raw Dezign makes sure that geometry is well represented! From decor items to gardening containers, the little resin triangles gather together to form bigger shapes that are just stunning to look at!

Look at those clocks. LOOK! Incredible! hehe ;)

} Atelier-D




I recently visited 2 local design shows (SIDIM and HAUT&FORT) and found out about Atelier-D, aka Jonathan Dorthe.

He dabbles in furniture and accessories for the home, in wood, metal, plexi and fabric. You can actually see the thought put into every item offered… Just gorgeous!

} Obelisk




Concrete is a thing of beauty, but if you want some in your home (floors, walls!), you gotta be either lucky, or have the money to have it done.

In that context, concrete accessories then become awesomely awesome. lol!

No worries, Obelisk is there to the rescue! From bowls to hooks, to vases and platters, you’ll find something useful that’ll suit your decor.

As for me, I bought some of those concrete hooks! I got a “artistic wall of hooks” project in my brain, and before making a dozen good holes in my never-been-butchered walls, I want to be triply sure of everything! So, they are not hung yet, but I can barely wait! :)

} Liscious




Ok. It’s official. I fall in love everyday.

With something handmade, that is. ;)

Everything in Studio Luscious‘ shop (from Ontario, Canada) makes me weak in the knees. From the awesome awesome branch hooks, to the so cute birdfeeders, to inlayed walnut end tables.

Oh, did I say I love the hooks? I mean, I love the hooks… The hooks are awesome… Ok, ’nuff said! hehe

Leah Duncan, again!

I’ve blogged about her before, but I really CANNOT get enough of Leah Duncan‘s work!

A few weeks ago, I was at Buk&Nola, one of my consignment stores, to drop some of my jewelry (FYI, if ever you are in Montreal, DO VISIT this store, even if it’s torture for the wallet!), and noticed that Leah’s Rainfall print was there, my favorite. I do not know HOW, but I managed to leave without buying it (budget people, budget!).

Anyway! This week I was browsing Etsy (as always…) and stumbled upon Leah’s fabulous shop again! This time I noticed the tea towels, which would actually make wonderful wall art! LOVE!!!

This is starting to become an obsession………. lol! And to go with that, I just started following her on Twitter. *groupie* :)

Swingsssss!

I just *adore* swingssss! They are so funnnnn and freeeeee!

I was telling this to someone a few days ago, every time I walk by a park I feel like going for a swing! But I rarely do, only if at night. It’s a secwet! (Not so much anymore, I am aware of that!)

SO, if I had more space in here, and higher ceilings, I’d totally have a swing in my condo. Would just LOVE it! Too much of a good thing would be well, awesome.

For those lucky few who have this possibility, check these out (below) from ReidcraftShop! Carved & everything, classy stuff!
