Coffee Table Tuesday with The Peak of Tres Chic

Today's Coffee Table Tuesday features one of the first friends that I made in the blogging world, Sam of The Peak of Tres Chic. Like me, Sam is currently in school studying Interior Design. This lady has a big career ahead of her, as evidenced by her amazing Rose Creek project. Sam participated in my Favourite Furniture Fridays series way back when, and I am so thrilled to welcome her back for this new series. So grab a cup of coffee and enjoy Sam's styling tips!

Coffee Table Tuesday with Elliven Studio

Hi loves! Welcome to Round 2 of Coffee Table Tuesday, a new weekly series here on TLID that shares the ways that some of my blogging friends style their coffee tables. This week, you're in for a real treat because we have the lovely and talented Julie from Elliven Studio joining us. I met Julie last year at Blogpodium, and have loved following along her journey to decorate her house ever since. Her space is painted in the most perfect shade of grey, and her entire instagram feed is a daily dose of pretty.

Please join me in drooling while we snoop her coffee table style!

New Weekly Blog Series: Coffee Table Tuesdays

Hi loves! One of my favourite things about blogging is connecting with some pretty fabulous people. I used to run a weekly blogging series called 'Favourite Furniture Fridays' where I invited these cool peeps to join me and share their favourite piece of furniture that they own. It was so much fun! You can look back on all of those posts here if you missed them.

It's been awhile since FFF, and I'm missing the it, so I've decided to start a new series here on TLID called 'Coffee Table Tuesdays'. My coffee table is probably my favourite thing to style, and it is constantly being rearranged. I will start the ball rolling this week, but next week, I have our very first guest poster lined up and you won't want to miss her!



 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

If you would like the full tutorial on how I made over my coffee table, you can check it out here.
I hope you are all as excited about this series as I am!

Watercolor Wednesday's: Bookshelf Style

Last night I took a few quick minutes to paint this week's watercolor, inspired by my absolute fave room feature in my Design*Sponge at Home coffee table book.
Michelle Adams's entire apartment stole my heart, and I especially loved the way that she styled her bookshelf! If I ever flip my Expedit the other way, I will be using this picture as a styling guide.
And thank you for all the good lucks yesterday. In case you are wondering, the presentation went wonderfully and the design pitch was a success. I wish I could say more, but at this point it's still confidential! Your support means the world to me! xo

I've received each one of these as a gift (excpet for GBGP which I won in a giveaway!) and I love each and every one.  Thank you to my brothers and their beautiful girlfriends, my godmother Aunt Trish, my darling friends Bre and Mike, and my loving Boyfriend for these beautiful books!

To end off today, I'd like to send my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the horrible events that took place in Boston yesterday. I am filled with sadness for all those who lost lives and limbs and loved ones. My heart goes out to you.
