H2H: Cozy Winter Cottage

All of this freezing cold weather makes me want to run away to a cottage, and curl up on the couch with some hot chocolate and a good book. To me, the coziest cottages are dressed with accents of rustic wood, worn leather, plaid details, and warm candles. Below is a list of some of my favorite pieces for a comfy cabin in the woods.                                                                                                            -Anna

H2H: Bohemian Chic Under $100

I’ve grown a tremendous love for interior design, and always become giddy like a little school girl whenever I go shopping for new home decor items.

Now I know just as much as the next person, that everyone loves a great deal –  so why should great deals only pertain to clothing? You can find just as many chic home items, as you can clothing – and still have money left in the bank.

I’m going to share with you some great items which can turn your household into an ultra chic bohemian abode for under $100

H2H: Black and White Chic Under $100
There is just something so fab and effortless about black and white.
Such classic colours that no matter the pieces you choose, you can’t really go wrong.

When choosing to create a black and white look throughout your home, it’s easy for the space to come across as ‘busy’ when choosing prints that incorporate both colours.
So to avoid this problem, try to create accents using either black as your smaller pieces, and white as your larger items – or vice versa.

Here are some of my favourite picks when looking to recreate a black and white room for under $100
