Canada Day

I’m a couple days tardy but I am somewhat new to being somewhat Canadian.  A belated happy national day to many of my favorite people on the planet!  For my fellow Americans or otherwise international readers who may not know, July 1st is the anniversary celebration stemming from the year 1867 when the enactment of the British North America Act took place.  It united the colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces (the Province of Canada being divided into Ontario and Quebec).  Canade became a single country, though the British Parliament had limited political control over until 1982 when the Constitution Act patriated the Canadian constitution.
Though the above interiors are most not likely not in Canada, they feel very Canadian to me;  red and white patriotic color palette, humble, cozy, and country.   To see hundreds of amazing Canadian interiors, gardens, design, and one of my favorite resources,  stop by Style At Home.  The magazine is just as delicious as the site.

Best wishes to Debbie and Mike

I met Mike around six years ago at an island art show where the both of us were presenting work.   A short time after I met his upbeat, pretty girlfriend Debbie and I distinctly recall a conversation where my (now) husband and I, and the two of them, bonded together over “no intentions to get married” campaign.  We had a good laugh about that recently when we bumped into each other at the grand opening for the Veranda.  They shared an intimate ceremony for two, just a few weeks before our nuptials in January.  The gorgeous photo above was taken at the The Estate, and the insanely romantic photo below, just steps away at the The Lounge, which by the way, looks like this every night of the week minus the bride and groom.
Today marks the time where the couple leaves Providenciales for a new adventure.  Bon voyage and best wishes!
