luck of the irish

As we head off into this St. Patrick's Day weekend I thought I would leave you with a moodboard I just did for HGTV. Emerald green as you know is the Pantone colour of the year. A bold choice but one I personally love. hgtv_emerald


Head over to HGTV to read more about this moodboard and how you could integrate a little green into your home. I'll be back here on Monday with a truly original Hello! Neighbor tour.

And if you haven't already head over to this post to win an original 8 x 10 painting of your favourite piece of clothing by Sarah Lazarovic.


happy valentine's day

Share the love! If you're like me and have small children than you probably spent the past week writing Valentine's day cards and making treats for tomorrow's class. My sweet four year old refused to put his name on any of the cards I handmade so the effort was all mine. I hope his classmate's like them! For treats, I decided to go a little sweet and a little wholesome - chocolate dipped strawberries. Actually I have to give all the credit to my husband who bought all the ingredients late last night and hand dipped each one himself. That's true love. valentine moodboard-1


(I shot this Valentine's Day moodboard for HGTV. Head over there to read the post!)

winter white moodboard

While I live in a somewhat colourful interior I could happily exist in the purity of all white. White floors, white walls, white furniture, white kitchen, white bathroom - it all works for me. Of course, it would have to be tempered with some warm, rustic wood and lots of texture. december moodboard-1

Something like this would be perfect. It reminds me of a forest walk on a snowy day - quiet, peaceful and enchanting. To see more of this moodboard and how you could translate this look into a kitchen check out my post over on HGTV.

Could you live in a winter white interior?
