Seriously?! How beautiful is this space?!

I am truly so so lucky to have a friend who allows me to send her umpteen pictures of things I think she needs, pick up yellow pedestal tables cities away and trusts my “vision”, entertains my idea for a DIY spoon mirror and most importantly lets me photograph this very special space and plaster it all over the internet!

The “theme” in this room is elephants.  The accents are subtle but as you can see my love of ceramic animals has already found it’s way into baby “Stone’s” nursery {thank goodness for friends with similar taste and babies who don’t get a say}

The mama-to-be knew she wanted a gallery wall and I love love love how it turned out.  That amazing “W” is an easy find and the frames a combination of Ikea and Homesense.

I am proud to say that my DIY habits seem to have rubbed off as the mama-to-be whipped up this print on her own. I just love DIY and the $$ it saves!

The glider was a find many-many months ago at a Homesense out of town.  Sadly we were travelling in a small car that day so she had to make the 45minute trek back the following day to pick it up.  It is probably the most comfortable piece of furniture I have ever rested my tush in!  Mama & Daddy are going to enjoy some amazing moments in that glider!

Baby “Stone” is lucky to have a very talented Grandma who whipped up so many amazing things for this sweet baby, that afghan on the back of the chair is just one of her many beautiful creations!! I am enlisting her for all future baby shower gifts!!!

The knit pouf ottoman is from Urban Barn and really does a great job pulling together the “natural” elements in the room!

How adorable is this elephant head {ceramic taxidermy is my favourite}!!!!!!

“W” is the first letter of their last name so when I saw this fantastic basket at Homesense for under $20, you can bet I was taking pictures to send to momma-to-be who was there that afternoon to scoop it up! It will be great to collect baby’s toys!!!

The infamous spoon mirror almost didn’t make the cut, but I think it adds just the right pop for that wall!

When I spotted this yellow pedestal table while I was 2 hours away, I knew that it may just have to make the trip back to Peterborough.  Lucky for me my awesome friend saw what I saw and thought it would be great for the space.  I just adore the pop of colour it adds and it will transition well as baby grows up!!

See those adorable knit booties?! Knit with love by baby’s amazing grandma, I am still hoping she will make a few grown up sized pairs!  The elephant bookends were a find at the same time as the yellow pedestal table {I really need to stop shopping for others, I am so lucky she lets me}!

How much do you love those quatrefoil sheers?  Under $20 for two panels at Homesense on clearance, what a find!!!!

After a little bit of a lamp mishap, a thrifted find stepped in as a replacement and with a coat of spray paint I think it looks just as good as its $50 brother {may it rest in peace}

There is nothing I love more than finding a great piece at Homesense for a great deal and then seeing it in a design magazine or high end home store only days later!  This hamper was one of this things and I just love how it ties in with the natural elements of the room.

The super plush shag carpet is going to be one of baby’s favourite spots.  It has already proven to be canine big brother Jack’s favourite place in the nursery as well!

The ikea dresser offers a great amount of space to hold all baby’s things and will continue to grow with baby for years to come!

It is truly a beautiful and calming space fit for the little prince or princess who will be arriving any day now!!

Light Me Up

Are you sick of coral and gold yet?  If so this is not the post for you because I most certainly am not and I don’t see this love affair slowing down anytime soon. No way! There ain’t going to be no Kim Kardashian Kris Humphrey 72 day action here so buckle up people it’s going to be a coral and gold infused few months.  Wait, are we over the K’s with the arrival of the direction North West? Moving on….

Remember here and here when I talked about the infamous tall white table lamp I basically fell head over heels for and then mistakenly let go on more than one occasion?

Well never fear home decor aficionados because on one of my recent {and ever so rare} trips to Homesense guess what I found?

A sweet sweet throw pillow!

Just kidding…

Seriously though, why would I have wasted the last 3 minutes of your life going on and on about THE lamp of all lamps again if I hadn’t found this beauty, just chilling with her sister in the lighting aisle.

Let’s get real, I didn’t pause long enough to take a picture of this pretty lady in the store, I swiftly scooped her up and marched to the front of the store to get a cart so I could continue my shopping pushing my dream baby {sorry future children} around with pride. So speaking of getting real…here she is in my war zone upstairs spare bedroom.

I have the “concept” for this room makeover but wouldn’t you know that now that I am on the hunt for coral it cannot be found anywhere?  Thanks fabric gods, not like I have curtain panels to make and an upholstered headboard to update or anything. Soooooo, that being said, I have only accumulated a few small things for my coral and gold dream space but I could not resist creating a little “vignette” with a few of the items I have so far.

Remember my Coral Hexagon Table?  Well she plays a supporting role to that hunk-a-hunk of lamp right there

I cannot wait for this room to come together, but I don’t want to “make things work” so it may take some time to track down all the elements.  For now I can keep staring at this little corner of gold and coral heaven!

More Shopping Adventures

It has been awhile since I have shared a shopping adventure so I thought it was appropriate that I share some of my most recent home decor finds.  As our house moves closer and closer to “complete” {no home is ever complete} I find myself in the market for less and less.
