At Twoheys we have a great selection of upholstery on our showroom floor. Some best sellers are so comfortable we always have them for you to come and try out in person. A simple change of upholstery often makes the style look completely different. This charcoal fabric shown below is new in the shop, we previously showed it in a light cream. The same modern clean lines but it now pops with the fuchsia toss cushions.

I thought this was a great article about embracing your home’s design as it is right now.

“As I write this, I can’t help but think about how crazy it’s going to be in a year (or two, or five) to look back at all the posts we’re seeing pop up on blogs right now with tips on how to deal with the current health crisis and the fact that many of us are quarantining ourselves. I sit here wondering how we’ll all be a little different after this time, and hope that these events will change us all for the better.”

“Many of you know that I’ve been on my own journey through self-work and a lot of it (in fact most of it) is all about self reflection. Time to sit in silence and meditate. Time for slowing down and taking better care of ourselves so that we can take better care of others. I feel like the past year of this type of work has been preparing me for this crazy situation in the best way possible. Of course, the fact that I’ve always been a bit of a homebody and an introvert at heart is certainly helpful. But in the past few months I’ve been working hard to create self care spaces in my home to support my new practices, and damn are they coming in handy now.” – Cassandra LaValle

I recommend that you go read Cassandra’s entire post I thought it was very relatable.

Photographer Gray Malin created the series of photographs titled “The Art of Living”  in Bora Bora and I just love them all! Check out this post to see the entire collection of iconic midcentury Modernist furniture.

“This series challenges the viewer to question the conventional way in which we experience man-made design against the natural environment.” – Gray Malin

This is not your typical new build where your neighbour’s home is the exact same as yours. It’s got great details and finishes. The designer has layered pops of colour and texture in a unique way. Check out the house tour here.

“The quarantine has changed how people view their outdoor spaces. As we all spend more time at home, people are rethinking how to make these areas more comfortable and functional.” – Terri Williams. Check out this post about how you can make the most of your outdoor space this summer.

If you are into interiors, you may have come across the husband and wife team behind design firm Studio McGee. They have a new book coming out in October that you can pre-order now. “For the one million-plus followers who turn to Syd and Shea McGee for advice on building a beautiful home and life, Make Life Beautiful will be a behind-the-scenes look into how the couple transformed Shea’s small room of fabric samples and big dream of becoming a designer into one of the most successful and fastest-growing interior design businesses in the country.” 

Lots of our customers are in the process of renovating their homes or cottages right now. I loved reading about this affordable ceiling transformation. Bye-bye to those popcorn ceilings!

It’s been so hot this summer even this moose needed to take a minute to relax and cool off!

Olive and Mabel are back with a new video, these dogs make me smile.
