The colour combination of mint and gold is increasingly popular in wedding decor as well as fashion and now interiors and I personally am loving it!

Simplicity in Mustique

 Architect Jack Diamond is best known for his landmark civic structures around the world however when it comes to his beach house in Mustique his aesthetic is translated in a more organic way. The three bedroom house like his many projects spanning from Toronto to Russia is deliberate and unpretentious and he keeps only what is necessary. Functionality was a central design factor and the name "simplicity" could not be any more perfect to describe this breathtaking property.

Summer is the perfect time to get outside and take advantage of the warm weather if you aren't lucky enough to live in a warm climate and a hammock is the perfect place to relax. Hammocks are by far one of my favourite types of furniture if you can even classify them as that. Hammocks offer an assortment of options and come in all sizes, colours and shapes. They are also easy to move around and store when neccessary.

Breakfast Nooks

A breakfast nook is the perfect place to start your day. Breakfast nooks are not only cozy and practical but super multi functional. Breakfast nooks are not limited to breakfast either, use the nook for a work space, reading nook or small intimate family dinners.

Malibu Beach House

This contemporary Malibu beach house featured on the pages of Elle Decor is both fun and casual. While the bones of the house are still traditionally in the Malibu beach house style the home is full of quirky finds and pops of colour. The combination of the traditional white panelling and simple jute rugs along with all the accessories and details makes the space seem effortless and comfortable. This is definitely a casual beach house getaway that inspires lots of relaxing, even the dogs think so!

Elegant Living by Sarah Richardson

Sarah Richardson and Tommy Smythe originally from Design Inc and now on HGTV's Sarah 101 executed another perfect space. This elegant design was inspired by the vintage French inspired metal console table. There are so many perfect details all adding to the overall luxury. Some of my favourite elements : The guilded antique mirror, the custom sofa, stunning throw cushions and the chandelier. Impeccable attention to detail, thoughtful accessories and a perfect colour palette prove another perfect space by the pair.
