nesting with nest

My first floor renovation is finally coming to an end. One of the most exciting things to happen was the installation of the Nest thermostat. First off it is a thing of beauty – round, black, and shiny – it almost looks like jewelry on my wall. Secondly it is smart and can program itself and finally, my favourite feature, is that I can adjust it wirelessly from my iPhone or tablet. So I can be lying in bed and not have to run downstairs to turn the temperature up or down. I know I’m lazy, but to me this is a luxury.

who knew this is how sarah jessica parker lives

It’s official. Our Style at Home web team is obsessed with Vogue.com’s 73 Question web series. Sure, we love learning more about our favourite celebs, but we would be lying if we said we weren’t in it for the home decor.

Although we love us some Sarah Jessica Parker (who doesn’t?), we couldn’t help but spend the Sex and the City star’s Vogue.com interview focused on her home decor. If you’re picturing SJP’s New York City brownstone to have a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque style, think again! We didn’t get a glimpse inside any closets, but what we did see is one very eclectic and colourful home. Decorated with books, artwork and one-of-a-kind accessories (including a collection of globes), this space might surprise you.

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?
