Living Room Decor Updates + Prettiest Chandelier EVER

Gallery Wall Inspiration

 

It’s been almost a year since we started redecorating our condo, and WOW, I did not expect it to take this long! But I’m so excited to say that we are almost done! I first shared our living room decor last December, and I’ve since made a lot of changes and new additions to the space. I still have a few things to do, like style our bar cart (not shown here, but I’ll share soon). I’m also still wanting to make a few changes to some things in these photos, like the styling of the cabinet and a few photos on the gallery wall, but I think I’ll always be making tiny changes and adding cute new decor items to the room.

 

The one item that I’m, by far, most excited about is our new brass chandelier from Lucent Lightshop. I first discovered this stunning shop on Etsy about 2 years ago, and immediately fell in love with their sputnik light fixtures. I was completely obsessed with their fixtures, and when I saw the Vortice Chandelier about a year ago, I knew that I needed to own this beauty. Since we rent our condo, I hesitated to purchase light fixtures, as these feel more permanent. However, I couldn’t stop thinking about this chandelier, and I knew it would completely change our space. I will definitely take this light fixture with me once we eventually buy our own condo, as I know this will look amazing in any room in the future.

Seriously, this chandelier makes me smile every single day. I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s truly a beauty, and so well made. I highly recommend Lucent Lightshop for gorgeous and affordable lighting fixtures!

 

I also added a ton of decor objects, vases, candles and new pillows to the space. If you can’t tell, I LOVE color, and kept everything bright and colorful. I also changed every photo on the gallery wall, except for one (a photo from our wedding). I bought my first Slim Aarons photograph (one of my 2 favorite photographers), and added 2 Gray Malin prints (the second of my 2 favorite photographers) to the picture ledges. I also switched all of the black and gold picture frames to all white. The photos are already colorful on their own, and I feel the white frames look cleaner. I love how the gallery wall turned out!

Out and About: Tablescapes Spring DIY Workshop with Canadian Tire

Thursday, May 25, 2017 0 1

The Canvas Collection Canadian Tire

 

You may have seen on my Instagram last week that I co-hosted a “Tablescapes” Spring DIY Workshop, featuring the CANVAS outdoor dining collection from Canadian Tire. I had sooo much fun that I wanted to share a little recap of the event for those of you who couldn’t attend. My co-host was the talented Tracy Platt, Canadian Tire’s resident style expert. Her and her team designed every piece of the CANVAS indoor and outdoor collection, and I must say, WOW, what an amazing job they did!

 

There are so many pieces in the CANVAS Spring Collection that I wanted, but when I finally narrowed it down, I went for a turquoise tropical theme (see my setting in the photo below). My fave pieces included the CANVAS Aloha Dessert Plates, the CANVAS Marina Dinner Plates, and the CANVAS Serving Board. Such a stunning colour combo, and perfect for Spring/Summer!

The “Tablescapes” Spring DIY Workshop had a great turnout! Attendees received some Al Fresco Table Setting Tips from Tracy and myself, they worked together to create some fun tablescapes of their own, and got to check out the CANVAS Collection showroom, showcasing all of the indoor and outdoor pieces from the Spring lineup.

Glitter Tape DIY Gift Wrap

DIY Gift Wrap with Glitter Washii Tape

 

I’m going to toot my own horn for a minute, and say that I’m actually a really good gift wrapper. I absolutely L-O-V-E wrapping presents, and have loved it for as long as I can remember. When I was in high school, I remember people always asking me to help them wrap presents when I was at their houses. My loved ones also always say that they look forward to my gift wrapping as much as they look forward to the actual present. So, when Seal-It reached out and asked if I wanted to get holiday crafty with their fabulous glitter tape, my first instinct was that it was the perfect item to get creative (and sparkly!) with to wrap my holiday gifts!

Supplies for this DIY are super simple to put together. The Seal-It Glitter Tape can be purchased online at SealItGlitterStore.ca, or at Shopper Drug Mart (in Canada), and I picked up all of the other holiday supplies at the dollar store! Cute little accents (such as bells, ornaments, faux greenery, garland, berries), ribbon, twine and candy canes can be added to the gifts for that extra wow factor.

I made the adorable gift tags by layering rows of Seal-It glitter tape on card stock, then cutting out the desired shapes. I used the same technique to create the letter ‘J’ on the gift tag below.

To create the bow above, I took 2 strips of glitter tape and placed them sticky side to sticky side. Then I created an ‘O’ shape with the strip, pinched it in the middle to create the bow shape, then put a piece of tape around the middle. Super easy and cute!

I LOVE the Seal-It Glitter Tape because the glitter never flakes off, and it can actually be torn with your hands…no scissors required! It can also be stuck to a number of different surfaces, but it’s not a heavy duty tape, so it can easily be removed. It’s perfect for crafts and DIY’s!
