I have no excuse, I fell off of the blogging wagon! I have spent six months thinking about blogging and coming up with new topics but that’s all they were….thoughts. I got caught up in life and failed to take some time to nurture my creative outlet aka this blog. I have missed all of you and I am so happy to be back! Here is a quick update – I bought my first place! I have dreamed of this moment for a very long time, and more importantly I have dreamed about how I would decorate my place. But now that I finally have the chance, I’m stuck – I can’t seem to find any furniture that I like (within my limited budget obviously). Needless to say, I am frantically searching for inspiration and through this search I have come across some gorgeous Inspiring Interiors that I am so excited to share with you.
Today’s Inspiring Interior is in Cordoba Argentina and it is soooooo cool! Named “La Negrita” and located within a forest, this abode was designed to exist harmoniously within nature. The home owners gave Cordoba based architects Morini Arquitectos the goal of creating a home that would be private from the street but connected with the surrounding landscape. The result is three separate modules (garage, bedrooms and open plan living and dining room) connected by a black facade. The black walls hide the home from the street but the latter part of the home has floor to ceiling windows that connects the interior with the stunning landscape.
Cool details such wooden floors that echo the trees outside and concrete walls and ceiling give the space a warm yet clean minimal vibe. This home is filled with beautiful contrasts, my favourites being the black facade against the light from the floor to ceiling windows and the privacy from street views to the openness and embracing nature of the home to it’s natural surroundings. Love it!
What do you think of this unique masterpiece?

Today’s Inspiring Interior is a small space with a lot of style. Located in Kiev, this compact (484 square feet) apartment was tastefully designed by MARTIN Architects. The owners intended to use this apartment as a rental so it needed to have universal appeal to attract potential renters.
Despite not being a very large space, the abundance of natural light and open layout makes this apartment feel much larger then it actually is. The bedroom is partitioned off from the rest of the apartment by a glass wall allowing natural light from the bedroom window to brighten up the entire apartment.
The colour palette is kept neutral with greys, blacks and brown but a aqua green accent colour has been incorporated throughout the apartment upping the style factor on this gorgeous space.
My favourite part of this apartment though is the kitchen. The exposed brick wall was painted black to contrast with the light floors – it’s positively swoon worthy!

Happy August Everyone!
The past two months have zipped by, and it’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the summer! I realize that we are already a week into August but I was having a difficult time putting together my mood board for the month as I entered August under a bit of a dark cloud. I had finally decided to re-evaluate a toxic relationship in my life that I had let fester for far to long. I took it upon myself to reach out and be completely honest about how I was feeling. I thought that I was heard, and I was hopeful that things would change for the better. I gave the person some space to think about our conversation, quietly hopeful to enter a new chapter in our relationship. Unfortunately despite trying to reach out to this person I was met with resounding silence. Rather then being treated with respect, I was ignored and put off as if my concerns and issues were not valid. While I am generally a pretty easy going person who hates confrontation, I was left with no choice – either I could accept being treated as an after thought who’s feelings didn’t matter, or I could cut the cord. That’s when, while scrolling through Instagram I saw the words of wisdom that I posted above “do not look for healing at the feet of those who broke you – Rupi Kuar”. And I knew what I had to do. So while I am sad that things didn’t work out, I am grateful for the opportunity to move forward without any regrets. I can honestly say that I tried my best to salvage what could have been, but I couldn’t do it alone. And now I have to move on. So for the month of August, I will be enjoying my freedom from finally being out from under a dark cloud. I will be healing any residual wounds I may still carry and taking some time to live in the moment and breathe, all the while rocking some of my favourite warm weather fashion. My mood board for August reflects all of these goals – enjoy!
