More Updates to My House...

I finally had some time to do some updating to my living and dining rooms yesterday so I thought i'd keep sharing the work in progress!
 The floors felt naked for a while so I finally caved and got this sisal rug from Home Depot. I was honestly looking for something a bit more special but budget and time do not allow...
 This print is an original vintage Christian Dior print that I purchased from my trip to Maui last year from this amazing store in Laihaina. I know this sounds ridiculous for a decorator, but this is the first piece of art I really invested in getting professionally framed. I had the frame done at Soho Framing and the result was stunning!
 I always believed in putting things around your house that make you smile, and this black and white sheep salt and pepper shaker do just that. I wanted texture on the wall, so I framed a piece of faux bois wood and glued the sheep on top kissing.
 The dining area finally received some colour from these postcard collages (explained below), but it's far from done. I definitely need to put in some kind of rug and my dream mouldings still need to be installed.
 I created two collages using these Penguin Book Covers I found on The wood faux bamboo frames are actually these old frames that were found in an old attic. I know it seems they are pasted on crooked but I did it on purpose to create a bit of texture.
I found this incredible tray from Homesense for $20 and I filled it with some of my favourite things for now until I get a chance to properly decorate. I have two small plates ("L" and "B") which are my dogs initials :)
