Design: Texture in White

We’ve had all sorts of weather this fall. I’ve had to turn on the heat, the fireplace, the air conditioner, and I have even had the windows open. We even had a really warm Thanksgiving! It’s been wild! But the cooler weather is coming – and I think will be here to stay. And cool seasonal weather means many of us crave texture.

Thinking of texture, I found a ton of inspirational images to share today.

#WhiteCabanaWearsPink: A Pink Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian readers!

It’s been another busy weekend on my end. I found my inner German on Friday to celebrate the first night of Oktoberfest in Kitchener-Waterloo, then feasted on turkey with family on Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving. Today, I’ll enjoy a day of rest (and take care of a few chores, too)!

Since today is Thanksgiving Monday, for today’s #WhiteCabanaWearsPink, I’m focusing on beautiful Thanksgiving table decor in shades of pink, rose, and fuchsia. Infusing pink into a tablescape is easy to do for other occasions as well. Just keep layering the shades, and switch out the pumpkins for something more appropriate. Miniature disco balls or ornaments would be perfect to include for a Christmas table setting.

#WhiteCabanaWearsPink: Interiors

Yesterday, I ran 5K (well, 4K running + 1K walking at the mid-point) at the CIBC Run for the Cure at the Kitchener run site at Conestoga’s Doon Campus. The weather, energy, crowd, route, and volunteers were all top notch! I am so grateful for all the research that has gone into understanding, fighting, and treating cancer. Raising money and running a 5K with an amazing crowd of survivors and supporters is the least that I can do to honour my family and friends who are fighting and surviving cancer and to remember those who have lost their fights (like my Zia Rose).

In addition to yesterday’s 5K run, this month, #WhiteCabanaWearsPink right here on the blog! Every Monday, pink will take over White Cabana to raise awareness – and funds – for breast cancer awareness. Sounds fun, right? It is! Let’s get going!

I’m starting the 2017 #WhiteCabanaWearsPink series with a selection of absolutely beautiful interior spaces.

Hotel to Home: Hotel Mono, Singapore

The colour palette at Hotel Mono is limited – black, white, grey. Classics, if you ask me! This minimalist hotel in Singapore opened just a few months ago in March 2017.

I’m definitely heading toward a reinterpretation of one of the rooms, but before I do, look at the hotel from the outside.

Did your jaw drop? Yup. It happened to me, too.

There are several room options available at Hotel Mono, but today I’m focusing on the most unusual: the single room. Everything in one room. Why create real walls when you don’t have to?

The room is affordable, too, at just about $100 CAD per night (depending on day of week month, and promotion, of course).

If you can’t make it all the way to Singapore, but you are looking to do a mini reno in your own home, here are some options that might get your plan going.

black jug and sugar bowl, tiles, black bed frame, mirror, sheet set, rainshower system, cabinet

The Friday Five: Large Windows

Interiors with massive windows always grab my attention. I love the natural light, the views, and the architecture. Here are five gorgeous spaces that show you exactly what I’m talking about.
