sister act: see the before…

While Marlie’s condo looks fresh and feminine and full of light now, it didn’t exactly read that way before I got my hands on it.


1 Home office

Before the home office nook was drab and lonely with a shelving unit that blended right into the red floor and a serious amount of wasted floor space…


A dramatic wall-treatment from Cole & Son’s Fornasetti collection made what once was an awkward nook into an eye-catching feature. Storage from IKEA is now off to the side to let the wallpaper pattern shine. The stunning second life rug from ELTE doesn’t hurt either…

aberfoyle spring special antique show 2012

This past weekend, I attended the Aberfoyle Spring Special Antique Show. This show always marks the kick off of antique season, here in Ontario. The dealers have been collecting vintage pieces all winter long, so there’s always lots to take in.

We arrived at 7:00am for early entry and made our way through the crowd. In addition to scoring lots of new (vintage) lamps for the Lamp Orphanage, we discovered a number of other fun finds.

Here are a few of my faves…



I was able to indulge my chair addiction with these iconic chrome pieces. I thought seriously about bringing some home to complete our dining set, but my man had to reel me in and remind me that we were there specifically on a lamp mission.

get the look of this posh parisian hotel: hotel duret

At once masculine and modern, sleek and stately, Hotel Duret exudes Parisian chic – how fitting that it’s in one of the chicest parts of Paris. Local to everywhere you want to be, it’s walking distance from the Arc de Triomphe, Avenue Foche (among the most expensive residential streets in the world), Avenue des Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower (I should know, I walked them all). It feels cozy, homey and welcoming while also clean, charming and fashionable – exactly the kind of combination that will have you waking up feeling like a bon vivant every day of your holiday.

pinterest boards we love {kitchen design}

I have endured my fair share of poorly designed kitchens over the years, thanks to my student and intern days (haven’t we all?) And although thinking back on those times, when all I had was a hot plate and a meager toaster oven to get me through the evening meal, is enough to make anyone shudder, I prefer to think of those culinary challenges as something of a rite of passage. Nowadays I have a deep appreciation for beautiful kitchen craftsmanship; an appreciation that would never have been nurtured had I grown up in college with fabulous kitchen design at every turn. That’s why this week the Style at Home team and I are focusing our Pinterest perusing upon kitchen-themed boards that are so pretty the sheer sight of them will inspire you to create mouth-watering dishes, experiment with spices and dirty every pan in your cupboards.
Keep reading to discover who these boards belong to and bon appetit!
