decor vs. fashion: metallic vase or dress?

Our sister brand, Elle Canada, launched an exclusive holiday dress collection with RW&CO. (available in stores and online starting tomorrow, November 1), and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Since I’m usually pretty conservative when it comes to dressing up and, let’s face it, decorating as well, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone with a very sparkly Decor vs. Fashion post. Here’s hoping that I’ll be inspired to shake things up!

So, which would you choose: a mosaic vase or sequined dress?

nesting with nest

My first floor renovation is finally coming to an end. One of the most exciting things to happen was the installation of the Nest thermostat. First off it is a thing of beauty – round, black, and shiny – it almost looks like jewelry on my wall. Secondly it is smart and can program itself and finally, my favourite feature, is that I can adjust it wirelessly from my iPhone or tablet. So I can be lying in bed and not have to run downstairs to turn the temperature up or down. I know I’m lazy, but to me this is a luxury.

who knew this is how sarah jessica parker lives

It’s official. Our Style at Home web team is obsessed with Vogue.com’s 73 Question web series. Sure, we love learning more about our favourite celebs, but we would be lying if we said we weren’t in it for the home decor.

Although we love us some Sarah Jessica Parker (who doesn’t?), we couldn’t help but spend the Sex and the City star’s Vogue.com interview focused on her home decor. If you’re picturing SJP’s New York City brownstone to have a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque style, think again! We didn’t get a glimpse inside any closets, but what we did see is one very eclectic and colourful home. Decorated with books, artwork and one-of-a-kind accessories (including a collection of globes), this space might surprise you.

diy: upholstered headboard

I did it. I finally made my upholstered headboard – and (surprisingly) it was easy! For anyone needing to add a little ‘umph’ to their bedroom decor, I highly suggest you give a DIY headboard a go. Here’s mine – it really makes the bed more of a focal point in my farmhouse room. Click to read my steps for how I crafted this together. The room is almost complete – now it’s just desperate for artwork!! So close to calling this project a wrap!

foxes are the new owls

Remember when every store you went into had some sort of Owl decor? Well bye-bye owls…Foxes are in! Amanda Etty was ahead of the game calling this trend out back in the January 2013 issue, and it’s still going strong! I’ve been out and about checking out what’s new and foxes are taking over the shelves. Here are a few of my favs.

decor vs. fashion: camel-coloured drapes or coat?

Camel is such a classic shade for the cooler months, and most definitely one of my go-tos. It transcends trends yet remains effortlessly stylish from year to year. I can attest – I’ve had my (very lived-in) wool camel-coloured coat for years now and it’s still my favourite. So, if you’re looking to invest in some warmth this season, look no further than this warm neutral.

For this week’s Decor vs. Fashion, which would you choose: Silk drapery or a wool coat?

diy projects: 5 things to spray paint gold

As a DIYer, part of the beauty of ‘doing it yourself’ is seeing something transform before your eyes.  Often times that transformation requires days or weeks, and sometimes months.  On the other hand, sometimes a transformation happens right before your eyes thanks to a can of spray paint.

Spray paint is the closest thing to magic I’ve found.  There is a huge array of colours to choose from, matte or glossy finishes, and even metallic.  My personal favourite is gold.  A little gold spray paint goes a long way to dress things up.

If you’ve got a few minutes, here are five fun items to whip out the spray paint for.  In a few quick coats and not much effort you’ll witness a  magical transformation right in front of your eyes.
