gold home office accessories

gold-macbook-home-office It seems more and more people are working from home these days. Whether you’re a blogger who works at home full-time or have an office job where you’re able to work from home occasionally, a dedicated home office space will help you stay organized and efficient.

I needed to upgrade my old laptop recently and decided on the chic new gold MacBook from Apple. With a new gold computer, I’ve also decided it’s time to give my home office a facelift. (Any excuse for a bit of redecorating!) Using my laptop as the jumping off point, I’m scouring pretty gold home office accessories to complete the look. Here’s how my home office is coming together:

new-use tuesday: sponge

As I wrote in the March 2015 edition of Style at Home‘s Housekeeping column, your kitchen sponge can harbour a ton of bacteria and ought to be disinfected rigorously and regularly. But in addition to some unpleasant surprises it might have in store, the sponge also holds tons of wonderful potential. Here are just a few of its handy alternate uses.

The ultimate wing chair makeover

Do you have a piece of furniture you’ve always coveted? Always longed to be yours? I certainly do.  And one such item recently landed in my possession and I haven’t stopped rubbing my hands together saying, “they’re mine, all mine” with a devious grin since.

 

This is the story of coveted family furniture and how the beautiful world of social media brought two people back together to help make beautiful things happen.

 

The item in question is a Wing Chair pair (with ottoman).  Originally purchased in 1975 by my mom and dad, they played a central role in many family events.

 

Here’s adorable little me celebrating my first birthday on the chairs. How cute was I? And how totally 70’s is that fabric?!!

decorating with farrow & ball ranelagh wallpaper

Many people I know are timid when it comes to wallpaper but I am not one of them! I adore wallpaper. When I renovated my condo a few years ago, I enveloped the front foyer in a pretty tree-themed pattern and five years on, I have not tired of it.

My husband and I recently bought a new home and I was beyond excited to decorate, to mark our new space with the personal touches that would really turn our house into a home. First things first: Wallpaper! I’d long yearned for the opportunity to use a particular Farrow & Ball wallpaper in my home and the time finally arrived. The pattern, Ranelagh (BP 1847), features an architectural diamond trellis border with a delicate foliate motif.

bold and colourful summer accents

For a lot of people (including myself) bright colours are often hard to commit to in a home! I’m all for neutrals (have you seen my apartment?!) however I am a firm believer that having fun colourful accents is key to finishing off a room. For neutral lovers trying to venture into the colour world, one of the easiest places to start incorporating bolder shades is on your patio! I recently did a segment on the Marilyn Denis show all about fun, new colourful outdoor furniture & accessories. Take a look to see some of my favouirte pieces coming out and where I suggest using them.

Lucky Charms cereal may not actually be Irish, but when I first caught sight of the gem-inspired Jonathan Adler brass box below, I couldn’t help but think back to my favourite childhood breakfast…likely because the decorative boxes also come in pink and blue.

In honour of St. Patrick’s Day (and emerald green being a paint colour to covet this year!) we’ve rounded up five bright green accessories that are sure to make a statement.
