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?

decor vs. fashion: red striped rug or t-shirt?

There’s a new book that’s en vogue among the style set this month: How to be Parisian Wherever You Are. Have you read it yet?

The book offers lifestyle, beauty, fashion and food and entertaining tips with a dose of wit and a dash of cool.

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.

editor’s pick: rooms i love

This is one of my favourite kitchens that we have featured, designed by Sam Sacks. I love the mix of white, marble and warm wood tones. And don’t even get me started on that floor! When I finally buy a house, I’m using this space as inspiration.

small space storage solution: raskog kitchen cart from ikea

Keeping a small space organized can sometimes be a difficult task. I’m definitely guilty of having too many items and not enough places to put them. So, I’m always on the hunt for stylish storage solutions to help keep me organized without blowing my budget or taking up too much of the little space I have.

While searching online for creative space saving ideas, I came across the RASKOG kitchen cart from IKEA. With an endless list of uses, this little cart has taken the blogosphere by storm. Thanks to its simple design, large storage compartments and colours (my favourite is the turquoise), I have fallen victim to its charm.

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!
