do you love cheese as much as me?

I’m pretty much obsessed with cheese, and in turn, this cheese board. It stores your cheese knives, acts as a wood cutting board on one side AND a marble board to serve the cheese on the other.

Have you seen the December issue of Style at Home? I love the modern op art trend I curated for the “Trendspotting” column – the products have patterns composed of irregular shapes in bright colours, which remind me of 1960s 0p-art motifs. In particular, the modular Kaleido trays and artful The Conversation necklace caught my eye, since they’re both small accent pieces that make a big statement.

There is only one use in my sights for my pillowcase, but here are three alternate uses that might surprise you.

6 great bathroom sconces that never were

Deciding on light fixtures is one of the more difficult things when designing a room – or at least for me.  When I started designing my family bathroom I knew I wanted it to have a nautical feel – utlitarian yet chic – both comfortable for children and adults.
