What I Love About My Home

I love how personal it is. It's full of my artwork and DIY projects. It's a labor of love!

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home

Storage space is a constant battle! I love collecting things and I'm always finding new ways and places to display my collections!

Heck yes! One of my very favourites, I think :)
I love your living room! I think the only thing I would change are the lamps...maybe something with more substantial bases. But it looks so cozy! I'm ready to come over and drink a glass (bottle) of wine and chat all night.
I am so envious of your sewing desk (wish I could sew, and now I wish I had a black desk with pink knobs).
For some reason I think the art in your bathroom is hilarious and I love it (I'm sure it's not intended to be hilarious, but it struck my funny bone).
I'm a sucker for white kitchens and I love kitchen textiles...Also love the cow teapot and pink utensil holder.
And the little toys on the shelves in your workspace look very cool :)

Love love love.

I too, am in love with the black desk with pink knobs. The stool for the desk is pretty fab too.

Even the cat match the color palette! I love the couch, the butterfly chair and the sewing area.

Yep, the silhouettes and bathroom painting are made by me :) Couch is from IKEA.

I love your silhouette prints over your couch, did you do them yourself? I have been thinking of trying it out... and your theme - "Labour of Love" since that's the name of my blog!!!

Definitely one of my favorite spaces!! You have mastered the art of having a cohesive space, which is so important when you're working with little square footage! I'd love to know where your couch is from.

Oh my - do you have every dunny? Love the way they are displayed. I don't usually like black and white - but you've done a great job with it. Love the various patterns. The entertainment center seems a little large to me, but I appreciate that it's painted black.

I really like your homemade touches and how you balance light and dark using black and white, yet it's not too stark.
