I love looking back at my blog to see where my design interests lie over time. About a year and a half ago, I wrote about the versatility of the settee, and I’m still thinking that this sweet piece of furniture has great potential.
Today’s Friday Five includes five settees that look quite different from one another, but they share the common features of small scale design and refined legs. Now, the question I ask is: Which one is your favourite?

Happy weekend, everyone!
I’ve been spending loads of time staring at black and white photographs online lately. Maybe I’m secretly itching to switch up some of the art around my home. Or maybe I just love browsing art collections. Either way, I’m happy to share some of my favourites with you.

When I bought my house 2 years ago, my nephews gave me a trio of all white art (seen here). My sister thoughtfully gave them a bunch of white supplies (e.g., paper, feathers, glitter, tissue paper) and let each of them create a piece of art for me. I really love this trio and they have a prominent place on my living room wall.
I find monochromatic art to be interesting, clever, and serene.

So, tell me, what’s your perch of choice in the summertime?
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
It is almost almost warm enough to sit outside. I cannot wait to put my furniture back out on my deck, lounge around outside with my latte, and fall asleep on my hammock. I am made for summer. In anticipation of green garden life, I’ve been browsing through many garden-y furniture collections. In particular, I’ve been focused on intricate garden benches.
