Color Me Yellow

With the New Year coming up, I've already started to create my resolution list. Top on that list is to add a little bit of colour to my life, whether it be in my clothing, food, decor accessories etc.

Bright colours tend to improve your mood and it's one of the many reasons why I especially love the colour yellow. It gives me a feeling of warmth and happiness, as if I was lying in an open field with the brilliance of the sun shining down on me.

So for the New Year, I intend to add some yellow drapes to our home, have not yet decided which room but my top pick would be our living room area. Here are a few of my inspirational interiors all with luxurious yellow drapes....just looking at these make me feel super happy :-) Can't wait to swap out our current drapes for yellow ones!

House Gawking: Houseboat

This week I was searching for a House Gawking Post for you all, and came across this stunning house boat, and just had to share!

Belafonte, was built in 1969 and restored in 2012 by Chris Wyllie and Kristen Coates, it is located in the center of Newport Harbor.  This couple restored this boat and now offers it for others to enjoy as a rental.  I wouldn't mind having a weekend getaway on this beautifully redone house boat.  I just love that they kept it clean and simple with white as the backdrop allowing the sea to be the main feature.  I also love the little pops of bright colours throughout to modernize the look and feel.  Sail away with me on this beautiful "house tour".









Via The Belafonte

Can you imagine waking up from a nap to that view.....just beautiful!

Unconventional Jewelry Display Ideas


I love to find new uses for old things.  So when I decided it was time to get my jewelry collection in order I decided to do to just that. 

I started off at HomeSense where I found two lovely wall mounted shelves, both of which are intended as towel holders, but I decided that they would be THE PERFECT pieces to start my jewelry display.  Other items I used were a paper towel holder, sugar bowl, tea cup and saucer, candle holders, guest hand towel holder, and kitchen serving pieces.

Don't be afraid to think outside the box, I used items from my home, HomeSense and even the 2nd hand store.  I shopped in every department other than the storage department to create this unique unconventional jewelry display.



 Tiered Kitchen Serving Tray as bracelet holder, sugar bowl for watch storage, guest towel holder for bracelet storage, or short necklaces.  All these items were from a second hand store.

Fillable Candle Holders  - had previously, but wasn't using them.

Towel Holder from HomeSense to hang long necklaces.
