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.

Spring is in the air at the Hudson’s Bay Company with the arrival of bluebellgray, a Scottish textile company run by the fabulous Fiona Douglas. Based off of her own colourful watercolours, these designs have been digitally printed onto natural materials which are then made into bed linens, pillows and furniture. Amanda Etty and I had the pleasure of meeting Fiona a couple weeks ago and seeing the whole line in person. Read on to learn more about the company and to see a few snap shots from our visit!

kitchen cravings: structure bakeware

I think it’s safe to say that Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend officially rings in baking season (for those of us who aren’t year-round bakers). I got a sneak peek at a brand new collection of bakeware from Quebec-based Trudeau, and lovely readers, I think you’ll be as pleased as I was.

The Structure collection features everything you love about silicone bakeware – non-stick and flexible properties ensure muffins and loaves easily pop right out of their pans – plus the added bonus of a reinforced steel rim for secure handling. Your baking lives just got a whole lot easier!
