Displaying posts labeled "Colour"

Happy Friday everyone! I’ve got a busy weekend ahead filled with errands, chores around the house and other boring stuff. Hope you all have better things planned. 🙂 Thought I’d share some more photos from the fabulous French site du côté de chez vous (previous post here). FYI: They have lots of great small space solutions (some photos included below) for those of you who have emailed us begging for help in that area.



When you’re horrified by white (and a bonus)

Posted on Thu, 13 May 2010 by KiM

Nathalie is horrified by white. So naturally she gravitates towards colour. And she’s not afraid to use it….all over her apartment. In wacky and wonderful ways.


And on the same website that I found Nathalie’s home, I found a large selection of small spaces, including some pretty amazing solutions when dealing with cramped quarters. If you’re fortunate enough to have an open loft space but aren’t sure what to do for a bedroom, how about a rolling cube just large enough to fit a bed? This is SUCH a brilliant idea.

My sister recently sent me the link to a Hungarian magazine called Otthon. I was excited to find a slew of cool photos on their website. Here are some that really caught my eye. (The first one = SO ADORABLE!).

Why I wanted a shipping container – part 2

Posted on Wed, 17 Mar 2010 by KiM

Here is another store in Puerto Vallarta that I almost passed out in. It’s called Ponciana, located downtown, and was filled with everything under the sun. Clothing, tons of linens (lace, tablecloths, pillowcovers, runners…), mirrors, furniture, glassware, dishes, pottery, paintings…you name it. And I went a little nutty in this store knowing I could fit little bits and pieces in my suitcase. To my delight I did end up purchasing several items. Here’s a peek inside Ponciana, and coincidentally you’ll get a glimpse at a few of the things that came home with me (which is another post for later).


More from Mexico

Posted on Thu, 11 Mar 2010 by KiM

I had such a blast in Mexico that I thought I’d share some more photos that I took. These are again from some of the shops (plus a couple extras) in the town of Sayulita. I was so in love with all the ethnic/global/wordly items that I was devastated knowing I had only part of a suitcase to fill instead of a shipping container.
