Summertime Sadness

Although it is a very exciting time when summer rolls around it also sad for many of us when we realize we are NOT bikini ready.
thus I have put together some images of wonderful one piece bating suits that will ensure we look our best. After all fashion does inspire interiors!

This bathing suit is very traditional in its colours and style as well. The blue and white with the separation of the belt is very similar to what someone would wear everyday to work. It also emulates the colours of a traditional light house inspired cottage.

This bathing suit I would say encapsulates my style in fashion and interiors. The dark seductive colour paired with mixed metals in the straps and her accessories suggest classic elegance with a touch of a vintage feel. I like to mix different medias in unexpected ways to layer lots of texture, much like the effect her bathing suit gives off. It also reminds me of one of my favourite time time in history, the roaring 20's - Great Gatsby Esq!

This bathing suit for me is very retro chic. It reminds me of shabby chic as well. This could easily set the tone for living space.

This image reminds me of images of hotels in france and italy. The architecture of the building is echoed in the style of her bathing suit, accessories, and well defined hairstyle.

This whole image for me is a mood board waiting to happen for a very laid back cottage. Imagine the white linen couches, sandy beige woven carpets, and blue sea accessories!

I would like to add that not only are the one pieces above stunning but so are photo shoot sets! 

As we can see our choice in fashion has a direct effect on our decor choices and vice versa. I hope you all loved my last minute bathing suit ideas and interior decor thoughts!

Talk to you later!

IDS 2014 Faves!

As most of you are aware this past weekend was the IDS 2014 show. I have a wonderful time and met great people. The highlight of the show for me was the gorgeous flirting options. All the tiles and different patterned hardwood options were fantastic. Below you can see all my fave from the show and do not worry there is no shortage of photos! ( all photos via moi curtesy of IDS exhibitors!)

I love marble no matter what type of vein! From simple subway tiles to a wonderful pattern like above the marble always shines !
A herringbone pattern can also add character whether it be a hardwood floor or a showers tiling!

Hope you loved my faves! See more favourites below....

I just loved ikea's booth this year! The gold tiling just to die for, I liked that they layered gold on gold with the frame and tiling. It is a bold statement that would look awesome in a brass or silver! Urban barn really took it to another level and upped there visual display! 

I hope you all had a great time and loved my highlightst above! Feel free to leave comments and share your fave booths,etc....

Talk to you Later,
