We spent so much time and energy on the inside of the house these past weeks that originally we thought we’d wait until next year to do the backyard. 

Lo and behold, we put in gardens in the front, painted the deck, bought lounge furniture, put sod down, and put in a small vegetable garden. (With lots of help from the in-laws I might add!)

Den – final touches

This room is nearly there.

We decided to add another sconce instead of the table lamp. So there will end up being 3.

Debating on a rug in here. I love our floors but the coffee table is sliding.

Art is up. It’s a bit of a negotiation because more is more–in my opinion–but my husband wants to stop for now.
This is the comfiest couch around and I want to spend all day on it. 

Starting on the Master Bedroom

Deciding what pieces of art to go in here might be difficult. I don’t have any more horizontal paintings or prints so I’m thinking a gallery wall of some sort.

I’m going to add some hooks for robes on either side of the bed, along with the art when I decide what that is.

Luckily we have a lot of space in this room and opposite the bed I will eventually do a dressing table/vanity desk/makeup station that I’m looking forward to.

More to come!

Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market

I have been admiring this style of candlestick holder for ages but haven’t quite found some in my price range. Between the grain, minimalist curves, and sculptural look I knew they’d find a place in my house.

Luckily, as I was shopping at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market this weekend, I found them! Between 3 different vendors (and two hours later!) I came home with 6 mid-century teak candleholders for under $100.
