Bathroom inspiration

My younger sister Jen just bought a house with her boyfriend Dave which includes a bathroom that needs renovating because of some serious leak issues. So I told Jen I would post some photos to inspire her for her upcoming renovation. This was tough because so many bathrooms out there consist of really gorgeous and therefore really expensive tiles or marble, or they're simply really large spaces. Jen and Dave do not have alot of money to spend and although I haven't seen the bathroom, I know it will be a small space. Jen and Dave, do not take these photos literally. For example, I do not think you should tile an entire bathroom in black tile, but using all different shapes of a tile in the same colour is a great idea. (I've also realized that white tile looks incredible with dark grey grout.) Hope this helps.

Dog on a couch with some fab pillows

Dean of my little apartment emailed to share photos of her half corgi/half beagle pooch named Bunny, who appears to love lounging on her couch with some fabulous vintage geometric needlepoint pillows. Thanks for sharing these Dean!


Sorry to steal your thunder Dean but while I'm posting more cute reader's pets, I thought I'd sneak a photo in of one of my 5 monsters cats. Here's my favourite one of Lucky, sitting like a little old man on one of my mid-century chairs I inherited from my nonna (grandmother). This one is for you Auntie Jo.

Deborah Jaffe


Deborah Jaffe is a photographer who had shot for all sorts of magazines: Domino, Elle Decoration, Jane, Cosmo, Elle, Glamour and more. But of course, I am particularly fond of her interiors portfolio. Sadly, the photos on her website appear to be scans so they aren't very large or clear, but they are beautiful nonetheless.
