Pop Up! – W Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale

A little late but…a few months ago my husband and I had a great time on a fabulous Caribbean cruise where I mostly slept, slept and slept. I  couldn’t ask for a better week given the state of my current New York life. We stayed at the wonderful W Fort Lauderdale beforehand where I spotted some interesting art and architecture!

Below are two photos of the lobby. The ceiling of the lobby is actually the bottom of the pool. Pretty great, right?

Has anyone else stayed at the W Fort Lauderdale? What did you think?

Pop Up! Display

Corie sent me these photos of a window display in NYC. How perfectly suited this display is for her Pop Up! series!

Now – any ideas of how I can actually get my hands on those awesome letters? They’d look perfect in the White Cabana studio – aka my apartment.

Pop Up! – Christmas at ABC Carpet & Home

Last week we went to visit Santa with the boys at the beautiful ABC Carpet and Home. For those of you who don’t know – it is one of NYC’s most stunning shops! The visit kick started the Christmas season for us and I long for all-white Christmas decor thanks to these inspiring vignettes!

Welcome Corie and the Pop Up! Series

I am so utterly excited to welcome White Cabana’s newest contributor – welcome Corie!

As some of you may know, Corie is my older (sorry, I had to get that in there) sister and we lead quite different lives. While I’m working away on my PhD and loving life as a singleton in small-town London, Ontario, Corie is married to Jeff, is a stay-at-home mom to three boys (under the age of 4!), and lives in Manhattan. As you can imagine, Corie will bring a much different perspective to White Cabana and I’m thrilled that she has joined our team!

Corie will bring a new series to White Cabana called Pop Up! As you can probably imagine, life with three youngens is full of non-stop action. The Pop Up! series will allow Corie to drop in to the blog from time-to-time to share her experiences as a mom, a Manhattanite, and a traveller with our readers. She is just as crazy about white design as the rest of us so this couldn’t be a better fit.

So please join me in welcoming Corie to White Cabana (clap, clap).
