Canadian Crush

So this week was a whirlwind. Design school is officially under way as is the start of Kindergarten. As much as I love spending summer with my favorite little tan people, I really do need a solid schedule in place in order to function like a normal human being. I need a full agenda book and a wicked to do list to get my sandy butt into gear. The first thing on my to do list for this weekend is to find some inspiration for my first design project. Naturally I like to search my favorite design blogs before I get lost in the world of Pinterest... and I noticed a weird little pattern. I think I have a thing for Canadian bloggers. All of my favorite design bloggers live in Vancouver and have the luxury of popping into The Cross Design whenever they are in need of some perfect accessories for their next styled shoot. After I am done drooling over these spaces I think its time to dig out my passport and beg my husband for a trip up North. In the meantime, I thought I'd share the love for all of you to enjoy, because Canadian girls got some serious style.

First up is Jillian Harris. She is a bachelorette contestant turned HGTV host of Love it or List it Vancouver. Her use of neutrals with just the right pop of color has become her staple and I really couldn't be more smitten with her feminine style. (All photos above are taken from

Christine Dovey from Bijou & Boheme has a serious love for art and all things pink. I mean look at her daughters bedroom?! Charli wouldn't leave her room for days if it looked like this. (Above photos  taken from

And I'm sure you've all seen the beautiful spaces of Monika Hibbs home flooding your Pinterest pages. She is the Queen B of white spaces... the way she layers in textures and different tones of white is so heavenly. ( Above photos from
What are some of your favorite designer blogs? I am always on the hunt for more design blogs to keep me up at night! Thanks for reading!
