inspired by Aspen

The view of Ajax mountain from our living room and balcony is simply stunning and one of the reasons I initially loved this apartment.  Waking up to see the mountain is so peaceful and the perfect way to start to the day!

I have rustic, cozy interiors on my mind.  I love how these rooms feel fresh, but still reflect the ski lodge spirit.

new year

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays!  I had a wonderful time catching up with family and friends, while enjoying a little blogging break.  I spent a busy eight days in New York enjoying the city, seeing our great friends for New Years Eve, and working on the Soho Studio I designed... just a few last decorating details and it will be complete!  Andrew and I also soaked up lots of time with his amazing nephew and the sweet new twins.

I am so thrilled that after a very long lead time our new sofa arrived yesterday!  Talk about creating a positive change in our living space to start the new year off right.  I wish some of the proportions were a bit different but it's always hard when shopping for an existing item rather than designing a custom upholstered piece of furniture.  I still smile every time I walk in the room now (though please excuse the grainy iphone photo) and can't wait to get some colorful decorative pillows in the works!
