A Room of Her Own - Charlotte Moss

Sometimes all a woman needs is a reading corner where she can enjoy a little solitude and spend some time catching up with her reading!

Watch Hill - A Blue and White Cottage by the Sea

Hi Everyone,

How's your week going?  I hope all is well with all of you!

It's beginning to look more and more like spring here!  More sunny days and warmer temperatures to enjoy. Perhaps that's why I'm pondering coastal living and warmer climes.

I thought you might enjoy this  Ralph Lauren collection from a few years ago.  It's called "Watch Hill" and even though it's been around for a while, I wanted to share it.  For those of you who haven't seen it before, it's a dreamy collection and for those of you who have seen it before, it bears repeating and enjoying once again.

Just imagine coming home to this little blue and white cottage by the sea.......the very thought of it is enough to make me swoon!

Have a wonderful day!

Blue and White Coastal Living in the Muskokas

Hello there!

I have one more fabulous cottage from the Muskokas - this one is also on Lake Rosseau and when you look at the first photo, it appears to be a 1 1/2 storey, but when you look at the second photo with a view of the front of the cottage, you will see that it's actually three storeys and 7,000 sq. ft.

The interiors are just beautiful and consistent with shades of blue and white throughout.  The house was built and designed by Cory DeFrancisco of Muskoka Living.  The homeowners gave him carte blanche to design and decorate their home after having collaborated with him on their Toronto home.  What fun for a designer and decorator!


This house is deceiving from the back view - the front shows 3 storeys..  The Muskoka room is on the right.

The foyer stairway has two Windsor benches on each side of it.

Love this indigo blue living room with the vintage bathing suits wall art.
The tv is hidden behind the doors above the fireplace.
(I would have put 2 of the bathing suits on each side of the fireplace for balance and symmetry rather than four to the left - but that's just my opinion - it all depends on whether you like symmetry or asymmetry).
Just beautiful!

The window mullions were painted a soft black to make them stand out in the dining room.

An antique oak island and pantry offer a nice contrast to the all-white kitchen and accents the ceiling beams.

This is the loft at the top of the stairway with it's million dollar view.
The blue slipper chairs are the only spot of color in this all-white room.
A beautiful, clean look.

The Muskoka room with white wicker furniture and coastal style toss cushions.
My favorite room!

Love the ship lap walls, beadboard ceilings and the fresh look in this laundry room - makes doing laundry more of a pleasure than a chore with such a fresh and light-filled room.

The only thing I would change here are the overhead lighting pendants - overhead light in front of a mirror is very unflattering to the skin - side lighting on each side of the mirrors is so much softer and eliminates the shadows an overhead light would cause.  A much more flattering light source.
Otherwise, a beautiful bathroom.

Wouldn't this make a beautiful writer's nook?  The soft and serene colors would put anyone in the mood for creativity!

Moodboard Monday - Blue and White Delight

Good morning everyone!  Can't believe it's Monday again already!  
As you will see below, we are going to enjoy a "perfect pairing" of blue and white today and in order to keep the post a little shorter than previous moodboard posts, I've restricted the images to interior ideas only (and that includes art).

Let me know if you like the longer or shorter moodboard posts - would love to hear from you!

Thanks for dropping by today and hope you have a wonderful day!
