cottage bound

Sooo, my long weekend plans include: the cottage, the cottage & the bachelorette (go alli woot! woot!)
anyways, i am so excited because i haven't been up to the cottage in so long. its going to be nice seeing as it is the place i consider "home".. i have been coming up every summer, fall and (some) winters since i was born...i pretty much grew up there. And no matter how many times me and my sister have moved houses with our divorced parents... the cottage is the one place that always stays the same. :)
my grandpa built it yeeeaaaarrrsss ago with his bare hands!

OH yes. and on monday... bachelorette starts with Ali as the new lady, i love her!... Jake didn't deserve her, he's a dirtbag and is as boring as a thumbtack. i saw some cute vancouver boys in the trailor. which are soo much more her type. YAY monday.


Apartment therapy.

I have a design sense of mind. I tend to like small details and strong concepts.
I LOVE these interiors because of their charm, character and style.
not too modern, yet not traditional. stylish, yet home-y. (the list goes on)

There are a few similarities between them that you may notice,
and i am obviously a huge fan of. Including;

1. Unique lines and curves, interesting sense of space.
for example in pictures 2, 3 & 4 you see organic lines juxtaposing with hard, straight lines. Arched doorways and cascading overhead beams. 

2. open, airy & un-claustrophobic.
yet still intimate.

3. warm, cheery colors.

4. & windows, OH the windows. (i swoon)
large and open, letting a ton of light in.

I also notice ONE more thing about them that they all have in common, one thing in which i envy so much, envy enough to maybe even be inspired... they are all CLEAN. 

i HAVE to do something about the current state of my room.. (not to say that my apartment is in any way comparable to the photos above).. but i know that it could look ten times better if i just cleaned it up.
in fact i have already started... spring summer cleaning has started. 



Im back now, missing cuba. I am proud to say that i accomplished everything on my list... and a few more. met a couple new friends... and enjoyed endless sun. (and endless beer).  theres a picture of the seashells i collected and the sailboat/catamaran we went on one day and a flower (along with many) that the lovely towel boy gave me and my mom every morning :). The locals are so friendly and welcoming. the other picture is me and mom, and a sunset.

p.s there will be a lot more cuba posts to follow this one!
p.p.s sorry if it gets annoying!
