Three images of blue and white toile (or toile-esque) fabric inspiration...always a classic and never outdated, when employed in moderation!

Absolutely in love with Jenny Rijke's beautiful ceramic pieces. There's something so soothing and natural about her work that makes me want to slow down just a bit and cozy up by a fire...with my favorite Mexican hot chocolate in hand, of course. I love the combination of her work's modern, yet organic aesthetic. Her indigo marbled pieces in particular are just divine...
All of Jenny's ceramic pieces are handmade in her home studio in rural Eastern Ontario, so each piece is its own unique piece of usable art. Her beautiful artistry can be purchased via her website and in her online shop. I suggest grabbing one of these indigo marbled mugs, or perhaps these sweet gold-rimmed bowls, perfect for a scoop of ice cream...

The Cabana Cafe at the Beverly Hills Hotel, always the loveliest place for poolside breakfast or lunch, and a feast for the eyes as well in the hotel's signature combination of pink and green. (Brides, this is an especially perfect spot for a bachelorette or wedding party brunch!) Ever a pleasure to have an excuse to visit this hotel by the Dorchester Collection and the first historic landmark of the city of Beverly Hills.
