interior designer,

 

Everyone has a wish list for their dream home filled with “must-have” items. In this series, I’ll fill you in on my own “must-have” items – and hopefully show you that in some cases they’re more attainable than you think! - Gabrielle, Savvy Home

This is going to sound a little absurd, but people are often at a loss when it comes to decorating large sized bedrooms. This often results in lots of empty space. Not all bedrooms are large enough to accommodate two full-sized chest of drawers as bedside tables, so if you’re among a few of the lucky ones that can indulge in this luxury, I urge you to try it.

First of all, think of all the storage possibilities. It also looks very chic and holds its weight: much better than a dresser lost on a wall too big for it. It leaves space in the room for other things: a bench at the foot of the bed or even better a small sitting area or chaise lounge. Are you convinced?

PB Easter

 

Have I ever told you how much of a “holidays” sucker I am? Christmas holds a particularly sweet place in my heart (it’s Christmas after all right?) but close second comes Easter. I am not especially religious so why Easter you might ask? For the bunnies of course!

Since I was born, my dad called me “little rabbit” because I always wiggled my nose when I disliked something or when it itched. Since then, the name must have been tattooed in white ink somewhere on my body because when I met my husband, he started to call me “Petite Lapine” (little rabbit in French) without even knowing about my childhood nickname.

That being said, when I walked into Pottery Barn & Pottery Barn Kids I immediately felt at home surrounded by bunnies of all shapes and sizes, I wanted to adopt them all and give them names!

Hurry in and get some of your own before this weekend’s brunches as the Easter collection of on sale and there are great deals to be made!

Pâques en lilac

Lorsque j’ai vu les images de cette séance de photos pour Pâques, j’ai tout de suite été chavirée. La douceur du lilac de la palette de couleur en contraste avec les accents vintage de tôle, de fonte et d’émail aux couleurs sombres, a évoquée chez moi un sentiment délectable.

À travers ces quelques inspirations, on peut rapidement voir comment créer des vignettes déco pour Pâques sans tomber dans les couleurs acidulées un peu trop “nanane” et les lapins en peluche.

Pour réaliser les oeufs lilac délavés, c’est tout simple! Faites bouillir les oeufs et, une fois refroidis, trempés les dans une casserole d’eau et de colorant alimentaire. L’astuce est de vraiment doser la quantité de colorant que vous utilisez afin de créer cet aspect.

Mon fleuriste vend des petites cages à oiseaux en brindilles ou en broche de métal. Elles sont décoratives seulement bien entendu, mais pour créer un décor pascal, elles sont parfaites. Déposez à l’intérieur d’une de ces cages des petites fleurs coupées ou encore faites des nids avec de la mousse de fleuriste ou, si le bricolage n’est pas votre tasse d’Earl Grey, achetez des petits nids de paille chez Michael’s . Ces petits nids seront parfaits pour recevoir des fleurs fraiches ou encore des petits oeufs teints.
