diy: upholstered headboard

I did it. I finally made my upholstered headboard – and (surprisingly) it was easy! For anyone needing to add a little ‘umph’ to their bedroom decor, I highly suggest you give a DIY headboard a go. Here’s mine – it really makes the bed more of a focal point in my farmhouse room. Click to read my steps for how I crafted this together. The room is almost complete – now it’s just desperate for artwork!! So close to calling this project a wrap!

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?

bluebellgray at hudson’s bay

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!

decor vs. fashion: leather magazine rack or tote?

Saddle-coloured leather with its warm caramel hue is one of my favourite things. I’ve had a leather handbag in a tanned hue for a few years now, and every year the texture seems to get softer and the colour, richer. The other day I was wandering around Anthropologie and the Saddle Ring magazine holder naturally caught my eye. It got me thinking about saddle-coloured leather accessories (and how I want them ALL), and so I’ve dedicated this week’s Decor vs. Fashion post to the top two on my must-have list right now.

If you had around $150 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: a magazine holder or a tote?

decor vs. fashion: copper pendant light or necklace?

Copper is, without a doubt, having a moment this fall. And whether you’re looking for traditional copper pots à la Downton Abbey or a sleek copper barware (Check out this set from Target!), you can be sure that the metal’s warm shine is undeniably timeless. I compiled my favourite copper items in the October issue of Style at Home and fell for the standout Perforated Metal Industrial pendant light from West Elm. I used it as the jumping-off point for this week’s Decor vs. Fashion post.

So, if you had around $90 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: a copper pendant light or necklace?

editor’s pick: bluebellgray

A few years ago, I happened across a virtual tour of Fiona Douglas’s lovely Glasgow, Scotland, home. I soon discovered that Fiona is the owner of and artist behind Bluebellgray, the most wonderful line of painterly textiles. It was immediately enchanted by Bluebellgray’s vibrant watercolour floral toss cushions and tapestries, but disappointed that I’d have to shell out hefty shipping and customs fees in order to have them in my home.

pretty novelty mugs

I just can’t get my day started until I’ve had my first cup of tea. For many people, it’s a cup of coffee that revs their engines but for me, it’s a cup of English Breakfast tea. Served in the perfect mug, one that’s just the right size, a cup of tea is my ultimate comfort, morning and night. With more and more novelty mugs available, it’s hard to choose just one but here are some of my favourites:
