The boy and I invited a couple of friends over for an impromptu dinner/Oscars viewing party last night. On walking in, my girlfriend exclaimed, "Wow, it looks so much more put together now!" Indeed, the past couple months have given us an opportunity to shift things around slightly and shop for the little things that make a space feel more like home. Buying these little things has also pulled our decor scheme together and better highlighted the key accent colours in every room (blue and orange with a touch of silver).
A lot of what you'll see in these photos comes from CB2. Full disclosure: I'm not sponsored by them (although that would be pretty amazing because it would save us a lot of money). CB2's functional, modern and sleek wares just happen to jibe with the boy's sense of aesthetics and mine--stylish enough for me, masculine and streamlined enough for him. So without further ado, here's a glimpse into our home.
P.S. Speaking of the Oscars, what did everyone think of the award winners? This was the first year the boy and I had seen most of the nominated films, and overall I thought the right nominees won in most of the important categories.
