Drooling Over Small Spaces

I’ve been hooked on a new TV show called “George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces“. He has inspired me to look at small spaces with a fresh eye. I always loved an idea of converting a garage into a cute living space, a garden shed into a studio or a guest suite. It probably would be a challenging process but the result would be wonderful. I actually remember seeing an article about some Torontonians doing just that on Toronto Life and the spaces that were created were beautiful. Imagine how amazing it would be to convert a bare unworkable space and design a functioning living area out of it!

Day Dreaming About Scandinavia

It was last year around this time that I got a chance to attend the Cool Nordic event in downtown Toronto. An event held by all the Nordic countries to bring forward the best of the best from Scandinavian countries. One of the most things I enjoyed about my experience was learning about how all of these countries follow the “less is more” way of thinking. Architecture, design and fashion all seem to follow the same thought process but they are so intriguing. Since that time, I’ve been randomly Google searching, Pinteresting and reading up on the Scandinavian countries and all I have to say is, there’s more to them than Volvo, H&M and Ikea and…. I REALLY WANT TO GO THERE!!! Badly!! Here is a little taste of Scandinavia…..
