I have let this blog fall to neglect again. Hopefully, 2013 will bring more inspiration and progress. It has been hard so far. The anchor of the family passed away at Christmas. His wife is left trying to figure it all out now. They were married for 75 years. I have never seen grief as real as when we told her he was gone. The imprint we leave on the people we love is real. It is physical and tangible, and not to be taken for granted.

Save the Date

I try not to play the "if I were to get married today" game too often, but these save the dates KILLED me. Amazing, right?

Just Beautiful...

(from Notes on Design)

Dark Kitchen.

Love this kitchen I found at What Wilson Wants...

Tree. House.

Wouldn't it be awesome to have an actual tree in your house? This log gives a nice effect, without having to design around a growing, live tree. House designed by Pamela Makin, photography by Prue Roscoe.

In the Rocks

A sweet lady tipped me off to this amazing spot. Can you imagine?! Looks like we have to go back to Switzerland now...

Teepee or Treehouse

Now that the major work on the cabin has been completed, I'm already thinking towards the -- hopefully more fun, more crafty and way less expensive -- next projects. We're not talking about doing ANYTHING anytime soon, that was enough expense and headache for a while. But this little plot of land will be a life-long project, growing as we grow I'm sure. So, the next obvious question is; Teepee or Treehouse?

New Favorite House.

This is the most amazing home I have seen in a while. Love that it's quirky, but refined. The whole house is worth a look through the New York Times Website....

I want to live in this room. I love how the wallpaper mimics the trees outside......perfection.

Did anyone see Supernatural last weekend? It's the new Snowboarding competition by Red Bull and Travis Rice at Baldface Lodge in B.C.. They spent the past few summers building man-made features that they could revisit in the winter after Mother Nature softened them with tons of snow.

Dude. Amazing.

More Dunton...

Remember that wedding we did at Dunton Hot Springs? Well, Tec Petaja has some amazing pictures from it up on Once Wed and Designsponge (I'm a little behind posting this, I know). Jill did a few little behind the scenes posts on Studio Choo as well.

Ladies Alpine Club.

In 1907, Elizabeth Hawkins-Whitshed became the first president of the Ladies Alpine Club. She wrote seven books on mountain climbing and over her lifetime climbed twenty peaks that no one had climbed before. Can you imagine what winter exploration was like in 1907? And in a bonnet and dress?!

Good Fire.

Someday -- not in this round of construction -- we will have a fireplace at the cabin. Here are some of my favorites.

A Collector.

The Greek home of Alketas Pazis, a collector of all things design from the 1900‘s – 1950’s. I so admire the passion that he brings to his space — just lovely. More about Alketas's collections — and more photos—
