Pinspiration: Home Decor

I'm currently living and working in Jasper, Alberta, Canada for the next four months during my summer vacation. In September, Paul and I will be living together in Hamilton. Unfortunately, in my Universities town, leases for students usually go from May to May so I'm actually paying double rent right now (ugh) and won't even get to be able to enjoy my apartment until September. I will be making a lot of money this summer serving, so I'll be able to afford both rents. Living out here and waking up to mountains everyday is worth every penny. We are currently in the process of obtaining our apartment. I fell in absolute LOVE with this apartment located in a really cute neighbourhood called Westdale in Hamilton. The apartment is a 1930's apartment, in excellent shape with a decorative fireplace. It is my dream apartment and I can't WAIT to move in. Even though I won't exactly be moving in for another few months, I have been collecting inspiration via Pinterest for apartment decor. I really want to make use of the decorative fireplace, so I have collected some fireplace mantel inspirations to share with you. 

I love the pops of colour everywhere! And how they used a plant for inside the fireplace. 
I'm in love with the huge artwork above the fireplace. 
 Black and white dessert theme. 
 What isn't their to love about this? I especially love the idea of putting books into a decorative fireplace. 

Antlers instead of wood! Great idea.

Which one is your favourite? 


  1. I love all the fun colors in the first one!

  2. Love the first pic! Those giant skull heads are so cool!

  3. so happy that you guys are finally together!
    just one more month and I'll be in the arms of my boy again, can't wait!
