Happy New Year – I know it’s already the 6th but I’ve been away and am only now getting caught up with my blog.

I had a gorgeous Christmas break in Edinburgh with my friends and family, it’s always to good to go and see everyone – a hug is one of those things you can still only give and receive in person and although I’ve been fighting a cold for 12+ days, I wouldn’t swap those hugs for anything. My 7-year-old niece is a spectacularly good hugger, her brother now being 10 and too cool for such a thing gladly lets his sister shower you with enough hugs and love for them both.

I don’t know whether it’s the lack of these hugs or the weather here in Toronto – today I wore two scarves instead of just my usual one – that has me feeling chilly. I keep swooning over layered images of way to dress on pinterest and thought I’d share a few with you. They all contain a little bit of plaid, a little touch of leather and some brass – sounds like a gorgeous starting point for a library or a den………

Here’s a few of my favourite looks that could easily be used as a jumping of point for a design scheme.
