If you’ve ever browsed the well-crafted goods featured on BRIKA (a curated version of Etsy), chances are the Toronto-based online retailer has since become a favourite shopping destination.

holiday celebration in style

How is your holiday decoration coming along? Party invites are flying in and my own party will take place in 2 short weeks!  Needless to say, I am super excited to host our first Christmas party at Chris’ condo (you will see this fantastic home soon!) but it is also very difficult to decide on a color scheme especially when he likes the festive traditions in red and I must rather prefer a soothing palette in blue.

If you are also in a similar dilemma, then you have come to the right place today as I tour this beautifully decorated home in three distinct color palettes, proving you too can have it all!

cure the winter blues with beautiful design

When the temperature outside feels like -30, I can’t help but dream of leaving this frigid weather and escaping to a gorgeous, sunny destination. If heading south is your go-to solution to cure the winter blues, or finding warm weather decor inspiration helps to remind you spring and summer are on their way, you’ll definitely want to check out the newly reenvisioned guestrooms at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. Designed by famed designer Jonathan Adler, the guestrooms reflect a truly vibrant and authentic Palm Beach destination experience.

editor’s pick: xmas gift wrap

To anyone out there who has braved the malls in the last few weeks, I think we can all agree it’s a jungle out there. In the spirit of the season, for this year’s roundup of pressies, I’ve chosen a wrapping paper that’s representative of the wild experience of gift buying as well as of the festive season. This gift wrap from The Container Store, aptly called Wild Animals Gold Foil, brings a hit of the unexpected to my offerings that I love. I paired it with a traditional red and green ribbon and didn’t hold back on the bow (go big or go home). Okay, one gift down — just a list-full more to go!

classic last minute stocking stuffer idea

Every year I get a new set of socks in my stocking at Christmas. It sounds like a really unoriginal (maybe even boring) idea but it’s one of my favourite things! I wear them immediately and spend the rest of Christmas morning warm and cozy, occasionally sliding around on the hardwood floors. Love this classic Canadian pair!
