I had an amazing time in Newfoundland a couple of weeks ago touring around the island for some whale watching, iceburg spotting, and of course treasure hunting.  Today, I want to share with you one of my favourite shops in St. John’s: Home on Water Street.

gold home office accessories

gold-macbook-home-office It seems more and more people are working from home these days. Whether you’re a blogger who works at home full-time or have an office job where you’re able to work from home occasionally, a dedicated home office space will help you stay organized and efficient.

I needed to upgrade my old laptop recently and decided on the chic new gold MacBook from Apple. With a new gold computer, I’ve also decided it’s time to give my home office a facelift. (Any excuse for a bit of redecorating!) Using my laptop as the jumping off point, I’m scouring pretty gold home office accessories to complete the look. Here’s how my home office is coming together:

order in the media room

No matter how well decorated, a media room or office loses its style factor once you factor in the colony of tech boxes connected to the TV or computer by a tangle of cords. Whether it’s the cable box or game console, the internet router or an external hard drive, what the tech lover in you craves, the decorator in you hates. That’s why I’m thrilled to have chanced upon HIDEit Mounts. The company makes affordable discreet holders for all those ugly tech accessories that you can mount up and out of the way. Some are made to hide on the wall behind your flatscreen, others can hang off your monitor. All of them solve the issue of unattractive electronics cluttering precious console and desktop space – because after all, those zones are best reserved for the likes of a pretty vase of flowers or a picture frame holding a sentimental snapshot. Am I right?

bold and colourful summer accents

For a lot of people (including myself) bright colours are often hard to commit to in a home! I’m all for neutrals (have you seen my apartment?!) however I am a firm believer that having fun colourful accents is key to finishing off a room. For neutral lovers trying to venture into the colour world, one of the easiest places to start incorporating bolder shades is on your patio! I recently did a segment on the Marilyn Denis show all about fun, new colourful outdoor furniture & accessories. Take a look to see some of my favouirte pieces coming out and where I suggest using them.

lucky finds: 5 bright green home accessories

Lucky Charms cereal may not actually be Irish, but when I first caught sight of the gem-inspired Jonathan Adler brass box below, I couldn’t help but think back to my favourite childhood breakfast…likely because the decorative boxes also come in pink and blue.

In honour of St. Patrick’s Day (and emerald green being a paint colour to covet this year!) we’ve rounded up five bright green accessories that are sure to make a statement.
