Design: White Subway Tile

What are your thoughts about white subway tile? Are you sick of the look? Are you tired of seeing yet another bathroom with white subway tile? As for me? I’m definitely not tired of them. Year after year (after year), I come across images of gorgeous spaces that use them, and I always think that it’s a beautiful, clean, classic tile option for a kitchen backsplash or bathroom.

I’ve picked up a 4″ x 12″ white tile for my new laundry room/bathroom, and I think it’s going to look great. I know patterned tiles are very a la mode at the moment, but they just don’t fit well with my aesthetic. White subway tiles on the other hand? I can’t get enough of them!

Although I prefer the tiles (small or large size) to be installed in a brick formation, I do like the look of the stacked installation as well.

The Friday Five: Vaulted Ceilings

I know many people might associate vaulted ceilings with breezy, summer homes, but I think they’re beautiful in any environment. The spaces I’m featuring here show how a white, vaulted ceiling brightens and enlarges a room. I just love this design option for both traditional and modern homes.

The Friday Five: White Pumpkins

Fall is here…and pumpkins are absolutely everywhere!

I am amused by all the white pumpkin photos I’ve been seeing on my Instagram and Pinterest feeds. It’s incredible! A few years ago, white pumpkins were rare! And now? They’re everywhere!

Fall decor isn’t my favourite, but I do like a good white pumpkin or two for my home!

Hotel to Home: Apotek, Iceland

We’re heading north to the hot-spot-destination of Reykjavik, Iceland today. Here, we’ll take a peek inside the beautiful Apotek hotel. This is a four-star boutique hotel in a historical building that once housed Reykjavik’s pharmacy. Apotek – get it? (Apotek means pharmacy.)

While there are so many stylish suites to feature, I’ve settled on this bathroom instead:

Hotel to Home: Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico

Today we’re heading south to the Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico. Bring on the sunshine and warmth! The Ritz Carlton Dorado Beach has plenty of beautiful spaces, but it was the simplicity of this hallway that really inspired me to write this hotel to home post.

Interiors: An Instagram Round-Up

Does anyone get sucked into endless scrolling through Instagram photos? I try not to get distracted for too long since it’s the end of term, and my pile of work is pretty darn high. That said, sometimes I just cannot resist, and I click on through a bunch of gorgeous images that inspire me to be creative, engage with the community, and think about future reno plans (my laundry room…oh man…my laundry room…it’s been on the to list since I bought my house!).

Here’s a round-up of some of the beautiful spaces I have come across in my Instagram travels.
