Autumn Inspiration

Autumn has arrived! After summer, it is my second favourite season.

Nothing beats the beautiful colours... And I absolute love the look of a forest this time of the year.

It is always nice to bring the outdoors inside in the autumn, the colours add a warm, welcoming feeling to a space.

100% Reclaimed

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I just wanted to share a little something with you that I came across and thought you might like as well.

A couple of weeks ago, while I was at work, a customer came in and he was talking with my manager and I. He was telling us about his company that makes furniture out of 100% reclaimed wood found in Southern Ontario. Before he left he gave us a business card and said he had a website, so after he left I was pretty interested in what he was talking about so I decided to check out his website. The company is called Hd Threshing Floor Furniture.

The furniture this company makes is gorgeous! The wood is so beautiful, the colours, grain and imperfections from the wood show in the pieces wonderfully, I would love to get one of the tables, they are so unique.

The company and showroom is located in Cambridge and they deliver all over Ontario. Check out their website for more information and pictures. www.hdthreshing.com

Here are some pictures of their work.



Love, Love this table!






I love them all!!
The pieces are beautiful, don't you agree? There is nothing like having a good solid piece of furniture that can be passed down through the generations of family members (that is what I would do if I had a piece like these)

Goodbye Summer

Sadly, summer is coming to an end. I really enjoyed this summer, taking my little guy to the beach, the cottage and doing all the fun summer activities. It is probably my favorite season, but now that it is ending I am looking forward to the fall. The fall can be very nice (you just have to dress a little warmer), it is defiantly a beautiful time of the year with all the leaves changing colours. (Great time for pictures)

I leave you with some summer photo's we won't see again until next year....

Until next year, summer blue sky, green grass, beautiful flowers and refreshing blue water!














Goodbye Summer!! 
You will be missed.

Did you have a good summer? Are you going to miss the warm weather? What is your favorite season?

Herringbone Flooring

I really love the look of herringbone flooring it is absolutely gorgeous! I especially love it in a dark hardwood. The pattern adds interest to the space and helps to draw the eye around the room.
