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 »

best counter-worthy bath products: aesop hand wash

While I’m slowly but surely making over my bathroom, I’ve been on the hunt for counter-worthy bath products and toiletries. Since I prefer clear countertops (for both style and sanity), I only buy items with attractive packaging – unless, of course, I’m stowing them away in my cabinets. I’d like to share my latest obsession: Aesop’s hand wash and hand balm.

decor vs. fashion: mara hoffman floor cushion or tank top

I’m in love with New York-based fashion designer Mara Hoffman’s graphic boho prints and vibrantly coloured pieces (as evidenced in this post). Her attention-grabbing home decor collection with Anthropologie has been all the rage among the style set this summer, so it seems fitting that I’ve dedicated our Decor VS. Fashion post to her.

So, if you had $170 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: A Mara Hoffman-designed floor pillow or tank top?
