relaxed shower at home

Every so often I will see a photo and something inside me exclaims… Yes, that is it. That is the look! The authentic look of good design and sweet crafted details combined in a natural, non fussy way. A look that is both beautifully pulled together and relaxed; allowing the space, the relationships and the light stand out.

This gorgeous home baby shower thrown for Alarna Zinn owner of Little Jane St. and photographed by Ashley Oostdyck is a perfect example of a such a celebration. I just love it!
