One of the most difficult things for me about shopping for holiday gifts is that I can be totally selfish. Often I’ll find things that I want when I’m supposed to be shopping for others! Such was the case when I was shopping with Style at Home’s senior style editor Ann Marie Favot at the One of A Kind show. Ann Marie and I have similar taste (although she tends to like all decor accessories in pale colours while I have a tendency to prefer decor accessories that are rich and dark). When I first saw Ceramik B’s elegant pottery, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When I looked at Ann Marie, I realized that she felt the same way. Best of all? The tableware pieces are available in pale grey AND dark grey.

It’s that time. My living room rug has seen better days and I’m ready for a refresh. I recently discovered rugsusa.com thanks to a few of my favourite bloggers. The website has a huge selection of stylish, good quality rugs at really reasonable prices – there are always great sales – and I’ve only ever heard good things, so I’m excited to give them a try.
I have a slight obsession with white furniture (such a practical choice considering I have a dog!), so I’d like the rug to break up the room’s sea of white and act as a jumping off point for other accent’s throughout the room. It also needs to be durable and easy to clean (again, the dog). So here’s where I need your help! I’ve narrowed my choices down to three favourites, but I’m having trouble making the final call.
Savanna Trellis Flatwoven Navy Rug, from $336.
I wish I was in Copenhagen right now. One of the most stylish cities I’ve ever been to, Copenhagen always celebrates the Christmas spirit beautifully. So it was no surprise when I received a press release that the luxury hotel D’Angleterre, which is in the heart of the city, had put on an incredible display of lights.
