decor vs. fashion: napkins or backpack?

I love dandelion (or mustard, or goldenrod, if you will) – it’s such a warm yellow that’s perfectly suited to cooler temperatures. For this week’s Decor vs. Fashion post, I found these simple linen napkins with amazing colourful trim (here, in mustard), and matched them to a sunny yellow backpack.

So, if you had around $50 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: a set of linen napkins or a colourful backpack?

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.

Casual, cool and comfy sweatshirts are all the rage these days – I’ve been spotting them everywhere lately! For this week’s Decor vs. Fashion post, I was inspired by this easy breezy look to find an equally cozy sweatshirt-like piece for the home.

So, if you had $90 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: a cotton jersey toss cushion or a sweatshirt?

places to go, people to see: canadian national exhibition

With grey days and cool temperatures – and the fact that the whole Style at Home office is busily working on our November “Holiday Decorating” issue – it’s hard to feel like it’s summer. But I’ve got just the ticket for getting into a summertime mood: the Canadian National Exhibition is on in Toronto! Running through the first of September, this year’s festivities include a preview of the 2015 Pam Am Games (which will be hitting the city on July 10), an art exhibit of can sculptures of our mayoral candidates, an old-fashioned saloon, a fleet of food trucks and much more. I’m looking forward to checking out what’s new this year, but my all-time favourite thing to do at the CNE (not counting eating funnel cake, of course) is play the carnival games. The only problem is, living in a tiny condo, I don’t have the space to house the stuffed prizes. (The days of my bed being lined with plush toys are far, far gone.) So, my best advice for the ring toss and Whack-a-Mole aficionados out there is to scout out your desired loot before you play. Check out this beauty I won last year in a game of darts. This darling vintage-inspired metal plaque has held pride of place in my kitchen since last August and I have no intention of taking it down. After all, it does speak to my cooking style!

Caitlin Wilson pillows at Indigo

I’ve had a bit of thing for Caitlin Wilson’s textiles for a while. If your not familiar with her here is a link to her website and to a previous Style at Home blog post about her. The exciting thing is that while I was recently trolling the Indigo website I saw these:

decor vs. fashion: gingham sheet set or shirt?

You really can’t go wrong with the laid-back look of gingham (especially when paired with denim). For this week’s Decor vs. Fashion post, I was inspired by Serena and Lily’s wonderfully made bed complete with gingham sheets to find an equally dapper gingham utility shirt from J.Crew.

So, if you had up to $130 to spend this week, which would you choose: a sheet set or a utility shirt? DecorVsFahion SheetsOrShirt decor vs. fashion: gingham sheet set or shirt? Read the rest of this entry »
