peace out by meg

Hi'ya beauties. It's a glorious day out today. That sunshine is making for a little hop in my step and looking forward to the weekend ahead with my little crew. We have been full steam ahead on the girls rooms, made a bunch of progress but still feeling like there are a couple of significant things missing which can only mean I have a little bit of work ahead of me but fingers crossed next week will prove to be the last of the changes.

We also ordered hubs a super cool new Herman Miller chair for his office. His back essentially told him that the time was up on his old clunker and new and posture friendly was the way to go.

Danielle and I are SUPER excited and grateful for all of the amazing attendees we have on deck for Le Collectif. Anyone who is coming will love the atmosphere, the learning and the scrumptious  food.  

Jay is picking up pizza for dinner tonight and a bottle of red. We have ballet uniforms and some back to school items to snatch up and laced in the busy time of end of summer, hoping for a little R&R.

Happy Weekend everyone.

solo time by meg

How important is your alone time? Are you someone who craves a little quiet to yourself or do you thrive on being surrounded by someone or several people all the time?

I love being surrounded by friends and family, sharing in meals, laughing often and hearing the little pitter patter of the girls feet running through the house. However, I always get to a point where I need time to myself. I like a day to recharge. Independent by nature, I often snuck away as a child to read, colour or craft. As the years went on, I began to see how my mood would change when things started to get too chaotic or the routine of life became mundane. Change for me ironically doesn't come in the form of something new or something 'more' in my life, it often comes in the form of solo time. I explore the city, I go to the spa, I read blogs, I do yoga. I embrace the things that often ground me in simplicity, relaxation and most importantly, give me the opportunity to reflect with a clear mind. I like time away from my kids and my hubby. I like to just be Meg and have the chance to miss these beautiful people in my life- it makes coming home really special.

into the grey by meg

There is a chill in the air that I have ironically embraced the last couple of days. No rushing out of summer but the cool breeze always reminds me of how much I adore the fall. In this transition, I find myself being attracted to grey an often lot. Our pallet at home remains almost exclusively white but a few recent additions of grey and black in to our space have been quite welcomed. I am getting close to sharing the girls rooms next week and this theme has continued somewhat in to their new little hideaways, Meanwhile, I am starry eyed over this modern Japanese inspired space designed by RMGB. 

Design refresh on the girls rooms by meg

If you follow me on Instagram, you will see that I am making a few changes in the girls rooms. My husband says this is just an ongoing thing but I know he loves that I like to change it up. 

My little lady just turned two and she is starting to transition in to a more toddler-esque room. S, on the other hand needed a space that would be more conducive to reading, writing and doing little bits of homework. In both cases, I wanted their rooms to be a little more modern. They both need fresh paint, I am removing wallpaper, replacing artwork with big bold photography, maintaining lots of white but surprising even myself with some exciting colours.

I am also partnering with a few amazing brands to bring this all together and will keep you posted on the details. Here is a little snapshot in to the inspiration I have pulled for both rooms.
