A Painting, Some Pillows & The Staircase Reveal

Happy Tuesday.

Over the weekend I got busy making a few pillows out of some ponchos we picked up on our recent trip to Mexico. 

I was drawn to the vibrant colours & the nubbly textures & finished the back off with a white linen.
These new pillows remind me of Emily Henderson & that's A-OK in my book! I adore the way she embraces colour.
If you like these I will be adding some to the shop Friday.

I also created this painting for my master bath. 

The best part about this little DIY is that is cost me nothing. I already had the canvas & the paints.

The staircase has been on the list for a while & I am so happy that it got it's facelift!
While we were on holiday the staircase was painted in Benjamin Moore's Oxford White & Midnight Dream.
FYI- These are my favourite white & black paints.

Yesterday a very talented gent named Simon re-installed my leopard carpet runner, I say talented because he literally had to piece together the 12 pieces of carpet that were removed & no one is the wiser.

Just to refresh you memory here is the before.

To say that I am happy with the staircase makeover is an understatement.


  1. The stairs look great and well done on the pillow and painting front!!!! So pretty!

  2. Love, Love, Love the staircase! Amazing

  3. Much cleaner. Love the white with the black banister, very classy. I'm wondering how you're going to be able to lay on that leopard skin though. LOL

  4. It doesn't even look like the same place - just amazing and I can't believe your art...so gorgeous!!

  5. Love the pillows! and your staircase is AMAZING!


Thanks for reading. I enjoy your feedback.
