Here's the twin to my Franglais Stool--my Musical Stool!
I découpaged it with sheet music I saved from the trash at a book sale I volunteered at.

After IDS we spent the rest of the weekend shopping at gorgeous décor and clothing stores. They were such beautifully merchandised experiences! We started with Anthropologie on Queen Street (we later went to the Yorkville location as well, cause why not?)...the fact that it's in an old church = lofty architectural delight!
Bird cage, France, c.1880
Desk, France, c.1900...not sure if the wood-burned words and embedded keys and coins are from then or if it was a contemporary upcycle project...probably the latter, but either way I love it.
I love me some whimsical patterns! Speaking of whimsical (when am I not?), I bought this sweet cat knob!
West Elm is such a fun, cheerful store!
I am obsessed with geodes, especially when the edges are gilded.
For people who are indecisive when it comes to meals
The Snug Bar--adorable name!

Here are some snapshots from the eye-catching booths at IDS!
If this were my floor...
My friends and I had a nice chat with the rep for Jan Kath Carpets.
He told us that this rug was hand-woven using a photograph from the Hubble Space Telescope as the base pattern. Fun fact: Carrie Fisher has it in her living room!
Habitat for Humanity
Voting for Beauti-Tone's Paint Colour of the Year--I voted for the white. They were giving away free mini-can samples of the 4 colours in the running! Note the scalloped back wall made of paint can lids.
My friend Isa, who snapped this photo, and I were admiring this floor.
Marble and gold!
Urban Barn...oh that brick!
The rest area--isn't that scalloped chair awesome?!
Marble and copper!
