pinterest boards we love {patio decor + entertaining}

One of my all time favourite things to do during the warm months is to spend time on patios with friends and family. An afternoon sipping refreshing summer cocktails, nibbling on tasty treats and soaking up the sun along with riveting conversation is perfection to me.

So this week the Style at Home team and I are focusing on pretty patio related boards to help us all to pull together those wonderful elements that make patios a personal outdoor oasis.

blogpodium 2012: connecting the design community

One of the best part’s of my job is connecting and working with talented, knowledgeable and influential people in the interior design industry. From designers to editors to stylists, the opportunity to learn is endless and thanks to people like Jennifer Flores and Lindsay Stephenson, this opportunity is becoming more and more available to everyone.

From interior design shows to tweet ups, the decor dialogue continues to grow exponentially. Thanks to online platforms like magazine websites, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, and blogs, the talent seen in magazines is becoming more accessible to the mass public. Likewise, talent from all across the nation is being recognized and shared.

Enter creator of Rambling Renovators, Jennifer Flores, and Little House Blog, Lindsay Stephenson. These two passionate and driven women have created something to truly connect the design community on a more personal and educational level in Canada: BlogPodium. I was fortunate enough to chat with co-founder Jennifer to find out the ins and outs of this fantastic event.

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.
