fab find: ikat frames

Like most of you probably do, I now take the majority of my photos on my iPhone and upload a lot of them to Instagram… I’m borderline addicted. With more and more company’s now offering to print Instagram images (like Black’s), this week’s Fab Find is the perfect frame to highlight some of these captured moments!

Inspired by textile weaves, these photo frames (for 4″ square shots) can add a powerful and bright border to any insta-image.

decor vs. fashion: eyelet bedskirt or dress?

Although summer’s definitely winding down, I’m still grasping on to my lighter layers. Soon it will be all wool and denim and down. Eyelet is one of those great breezy patterns that’s meant for summer, but is perfect when you’re transitioning to fall – just pair it with warmer fabrics. I spotted this eyelet bedskirt at Anthropologie and it quickly inspired this week’s Decor vs. Fashion post, which is all about dainty eyelet.

So, if you had around $150 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: an eyelet embroidered bedskirt or an eyelet dress?

editor’s pick: jonathan saunders rugs

When deocr meets fashion, the result is almost always fabulous, and Jonathan Saunders’ floor covering collection for The Rug Company is no different. The Scottish designer is known for his bright colour choices and tantalizing prints. He didn’t hold back while working on the collaboration, creating four styles that pair bold hues in bolder combinations on captivating patterns. The price points are a little steep for this fashion and decor lover (my place isn’t quite as palatial as the below), but a girl can dream. Check out the four patterns and the inspirations behind them.

editor’s pick: rooms i love

This is one of my favourite kitchens that we have featured, designed by Sam Sacks. I love the mix of white, marble and warm wood tones. And don’t even get me started on that floor! When I finally buy a house, I’m using this space as inspiration.

new-use tuesdays: paperclips

It would appear that people can be divided into one of two groups: Paper clipper or stapler. I am the latter (there’s something so satisfyingly final about punching your documents together), but I’ve recently learned a few alternate uses for paperclips that threaten to sway me in the other direction. Here are three applications for the little metal fasteners you may not have considered before.

editor’s pick: cotton pillowcases

I’m such a sucker for soft cotton pieces (seriously, you should see my closet) and tiny florals, so these printed cotton pillowcases from Bon naturally caught my eye.
