DIYs we love

DIY Latch Hook Wall Hanging

It all started with a beautiful palette I had saved to my desktop  while pinning inspiring color combinations – another new addiction as of late. I wanted to actualize it into a three dimensional piece of art for our bedroom and what better way than to turn it into a wall hanging! Latch hooking is something I’ve been dying to teach myself for awhile now, thanks in part to the incredible weavings from tapestry artist Judit Just.

DIY Macrame Feathers

Beautiful, wispy macrame feathers have been clogging up my social media feeds as of late – but I’m not mad about it.

Innika Choo, Papier Peint

Boho darling Innika Choo has won my heart once again with her latest collection Papier Peint.  The Bali-based Australian designer drew inspiration from a selection of vintage wallpaper, so this season, linen dresses, tunics and…

Studio Grand-Père

These days, I’ll take all the positivity that I can get, which explains why I’ve been so drawn to lighthearted illustrations such as those of artist Rafaela Mascaro. Her work, each filled with clashing patterns, vibrant…

Heirloom Hats

Occasionally, I’ll discover an artist or designer that utterly excites me, greatly inspires me and reminds me exactly why I love my job. Most recently, it’s been Montreal based milliner Samantha-Tara Mainville and her young…
