Put a cat in a photo and I want to live there. Very simple. Plus being in NY and having those dining chairs and table would be a good addition as well. full house tour here.

Nikole from Herriot Grace started a new series on her blog called for the love of pie. As you might have noticed from my posts I'm not a huge cook but its one of the things I would like to change this year. I tell myself its because of lack of time but honestly it's all about prioritising.
First of the guest series on Nikole's blog is from Nathan & Katie Williams. They are couple behind Kinfolk Magazine and remind me very much my sister and her partner and also my friend Aud. In my eyes they are people who enjoy cooking (my sisters boyfriend is a wonderful baker:), live in smaller moments, and mainly have something very calm about them. I aspire that very much as I feel I'm constantly running somewhere, being impatient and restless.
Head over here to find how to bake this apple pie.

Couple of days ago I came across this great blog - paislee press and few things that caught my eye over that space was - DIY book covers and a book called Mini Masterpieces.
When it comes to DIY book covers, I know that not many of us probably have time or energy to do it, but I think these simple b&w covers and ribbon labels looks really pretty. Perhaps just cover the "ugly" books? like dictionaries, or really colourful books? head over here if up to this project.
Mini masterpieces is a photo book or in this case with pictures of drawings and projects your child made. I know my daughter would love it and me too...definitely doing it when she gets a bit older and have more drawings. Wouldn't that be great gift for grandparents?
Yesterday I finished one of these for a little B. A lady ordered large little stars in grey for her newborn niece. With a date, time, weight and measurement written in hearts I think it makes a beautiful gift for new mums and would look lovely in a child nursery...

Is another book lying on a side of my bed. I enjoy flicking through the pages, reading ideas and tips. Beautiful book about wedding styling. Matthew Robbins picks certain object as a painting, french candy, a cup or shells and creates a theme based on colours and textures. There is 9 themes, and it tells you everything from who could it be for, when is the most suitable to use the theme, food tips and styling, table decoration. A must for a wedding stylist and someone who's planning to design their own wedding. Just really pretty!

Like any other stylist's home this house is full of vases, ornaments, cups and plates. But beautifully placed with limited colour background they create calm and cozy place to be. Love the chocolate brown with white, nice change to b&w.... full home tour here.
