Didn’t want to get out of bed this am. But had to get moving to see hubby off, as he is away for work for a couple of days. Thank you so much @bedbathandbeyond for this amazing cozy space, even though it makes it so tough to get moving! #ad
So regardless of the cozy factor, my butt was all cozied up with a cup of coffee by 5am this am. It did however, give me some time to catch up a little here with so many gorgeous inspiring pictures! It was such a busy weekend that I was a little absent. I am absolutely Loving the extra colour added to the bedroom and the simplicity of the Christmas decor. Guest room is next to be Christmafied! Have you taken the plunge??? ❀️

What I love most about this platform is first the friends we make, ❀️and second, the inspiration and ideas we get and share. You have a design dilemma...ask a question or scroll a hashtag and dilemma is solved. Annie @zevyjoy is one of the people I go to regularly for inspiration. This is her tree from last year and it is one of the prettiest I’ve seen. I can’t wait to see what she does this year. You can swipe left to see more of her gorgeous home, and be sure to check out the last picture to see how she redesigned a trailer for her family! And, if you’re looking for some Christmas inspiration check out her decor from last year, it was gorgeous!
We have sunshine today!! After weeks of rain and some snow, it is such a welcome sight! Time to spend some much needed time out soaking up a bit of that good ole vit D!!
What’s on your agenda?

Happy Saturday friends!! One Christmas room done, so many more to do! I’m so excited to share my first sneak peak of my β€œCreate your Perfect Bed” #sponsored with @bedbathandbeyond I seriously had so much fun with this. From shopping with you in my stories to my on-line ordering experience! Bed Bath and Beyond has everything you could possibly need to create a perfect bedroom makeover: from decor to furniture to fixtures! I used their Wamsutta PimaCott sheets and Wamsutta bedding and I felt like a princess climbing into this bed last night! The quality is outstanding and I was amazed at their on-line selection of furniture and gorgeous bedding! I’ll be sharing my honest opinion and all of the links on the blog this coming week, as well as what I enjoyed the most and the only problem I ran into. I also did a #bedbathandbeyond hack that I’m excited to share.
Check out my stories later for a little walk through this space. I’m giddy with excitement, but coffee first!πŸ˜‚β˜•οΈ

To paint this fireplace or not? Hmm...that is the question. I #whitewashed this #fireplace about a year ago but am now thinking I should just paint it all out white or maybe even another colour? Thoughts? Maybe I’m just a sucker for a project. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
On another note, how many of you are excited about Outlander? I seriously can’t wait! If this isn’t your thing, what show are you looking forward to? .

I’m thinking simple this year for Christmas. Last year's Christmas decor had layers and little things scattered about. With a couple of 2 year olds running around, simple may be the right (sane)πŸ˜‹ way to go. Are you a layer-it-up kinda Christmas decorator, or, are you more inclined toward keeping it low-key? Although I started to go through my Christmas bins, that is as far as I’ve gotten. Thanks for the β€œget well” wishes, I’m feeling much better today and even moved on from jello for breakfast, lunch and dinner.πŸ€—. There something to be said for this yummy giggly food!πŸ˜‚

If you watched my stories, you saw how I created this custom map @mapiful as a gift to my father. ❀️Swipe left for a closer view. #partner I don’t know about you, but I can tell you my dad is hard to buy for, he is not a man that asks for or wants for much. But he is however hugely sentimental. If you’re looking for something unique and personalized, have a look at their website. You can also use my discount code β€œdesignsbykaran10” for 10% off your order! I really ❀️ being able to share discounts with you all!! When I first saw these, I knew instantly that it would be a gift that he would love. Being an immigrant and leaving everything you’ve ever known behind has to be such an emotional and difficult thing to do. I couldn’t even imagine the turmoil and heartache. Giving him this little piece of his home brings my heart joy and I know it will make him happy.
The frame was a thrift store find that I refinished. I also shared how I painted it in my stories.
What is the most unique gift you’ve ever given or received?

I’ve been curled up in this room battling the tail end of the flu πŸ€’ But, I’m feeling grateful for cozy nights and friends like you❀️. I’ve got my fav candle burning @antiquecandleworks Christmas Day, it seriously smells like Christmas guys and after the week I have it is a nice relief πŸ™ˆ!! Seriously though, it smells so wonderful. I also have a 20% off your entire order coupon code for you all - just use KARAN at checkout. Love passing deals onto you guys!❀️. Brittany also has a great sale on right now, a Christmas sample pack of 4 candles. Sale runs until Friday, it includes Christmas Day, Good Tidings, White Pine and their sent of the month Peppermint.
Now back to binge watching tv in between naps and jello... what’s your fav flavour? I’m currently fixated on πŸ‹

This has to be one of my favourite views right now. If you aren’t already following Jennifer @theramblingredhead Stop what you’re doing and go give her a follow. I mean seriously, what is not to love! Swipe left to see more of Jennifer’s gorgeous home. You’ve got texture, colour and warmth and to top it all off she is pretty darn funny as well. (Just watch her stories)❀️
We are on day 9, 10 maybe even 11 of cold, windy and wet here (I’ve lost count it’s been so long) so my pictures all look a little sad and dark. This shot brightened my day and I hope it will brighten yours too.
I love sharing other people’s homes for some #inspiration. Hope you enjoy seeing them come your way!❀️
Anyone have some sun they’d like to send this way!

A blast from the past this Monday morning. #christmas2016, Why? because it makes me happy and my house is literally upside down with things everywhere. πŸ˜‚ And doing what makes you happy is important!πŸ€—
Off to a doctors appointment this afternoon πŸ™πŸΌ and then hoping to hit up some thrift shops πŸ’ƒπŸ»while I’m in the city. I’ll share in my stories if I do.

We are working on our bedroom revamp this morning... or should I say I’m kinda supervising our bedroom revamp πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You can check out my stories If you’d like a sneak peek and don’t judge the pjsπŸ™ˆπŸ€£. While my house looks like a tornado went through I figured I’d share a fav space with you all. This space belongs to Erica @our_forever_farmhouse and you must check out her Christmas decor!!!
Hope you’re all having such an amazing day, we have gospel playing in the background and my heart is soaring with his light.
And we have sunshine guys!!! A week of rain so the sun is glorious!

A little #christmasmagic πŸŽ„from a couple of years ago to wrap up an amazing day. The Mr. and I spent the day going from craft fair to flea markets (you can check out my stories) just enjoying each other’s company, and damn, that is good for the soul. Found some fun pieces and even bought a couple of things! It is leftovers from our lunch out for dinner tonight, can we say yay for a clean kitchen! So if anyone is looking for us tonight, you can find us all snuggled in, like any old πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ§”couple, to watch a movieπŸŽ₯. Any thoughts on Momma Mia? πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»We watched Ocean’s 8 yesterday and really enjoyed it!

Early morning quiet... To be honest I’ve been feeling like I’m in a slump this last week. This whole thing here can pull you down and lift you up at the same time... should I post now, will they like this, why aren’t people liking a photo, is my home good enough, my style current enough, am I enough.... it goes on and on. But you know what, you are; we are good enough. I recently watched one of Erin’s @cottonstem videos and was reminded of something I once said to her for a blog post she was doing. β€œBe you and do what makes you happy”. Somewhere along the way this began to slip away from me. I began to stress over things instead of loving the process. Time to refocus and bring the β€œhappy” back. Erin talked about not letting the whole algorithm here and Instagram get to you and reminded me of why I’m here, thanks for that Erin. It all comes back to being true to who we are, creating a home that makes your heart happy and sharing that love here. Where it goes isn’t in our hands. Appreciating that your tribe and I have the best. That’s all of you! And let’s not forget, loving yourself along the way. So, that is where my thoughts are this wet and rainy morning (yup another wet day). I’ve started to pull out some simple winter decor for the transition to Christmas but haven’t started putting it up yet. Thinking it’s time for a change here, as we have had our Thanksgiving and winter is coming our way here. I am excited about the thought of the coming season and what it means. A season of kindness and gratitude focused on love and giving... How do you pull yourself out of those slumps when they hit? .
