one of a kind spring show & sale – part one

The One of a Kind Spring Show & Sale wrapped up last weekend and I have to say that this year’s event was a completely new experience for me. Not only was I participating in the show as media, but also as an exhibitor.

While my own booth kept me pretty busy, I did have a chance to walk around and chat with many of the other exhibitors.

I’ll be sharing my top 8 fave discoveries from the show, over two posts.

Let’s kick things off today with my first 4 picks…

 

1. Evann Frisque 

Evann Frisque is a textile artist, who hand felts, draws, and silk-screens her own unique brand of original art. She adds unexpected details to each piece in the form of neon stitching, buttons, found materials, and even electrical components.

Shown here are her one of a kind journal covers that deliver a lot more personality than the average variety.

I had the pleasure of being placed next to Evann’s booth in the Rising Stars section. We had a lot of time to talk and get to know more about each other’s methods. Don’t be surprised to see us collaborate in the future.

outdoor decor ideas

A few days ago, I attended the preview for Andrew Richard Designs 2012 outdoor furnishing collection. The colours were vivid and bright, and the furniture cosy and inviting. I left the event wanting the warmer months to quickly settle in.

In the meantime, I thought I would share designer Andrew Bockner‘s tips to creating a relaxing outdoor retreat – as well as some of my favourite outdoor accessories for 2012.

diy baby shower gift idea

It’s that time of year again – you know, April showers, spring flowers and all that jazz. The birds are back, the sun is shining and gardens are growing. And on the family front, bellies are getting bigger and additions are being made. The season of rebirth is also, it seems, all about birth… At least if you’re in my circle of my thirty-something friends.

So here’s an easy and inexpensive spring shower craft – inspired by the one and only Martha Stewart – that I adapted to welcome an old friend’s new baby.

 

Bucket of joy for a bundle of joy!

chalkboard decor accessories

There’s something rustic and charming about incorporating chalkboard items into your home decor, isn’t there? A reminder of the blackboards of our high school years, these items are an easy way to add a little whimsy and youthfulness to our home decor. Whether it’s fun accessories or larger items like wall stickers used to adorn kitchen or office walls, chalkboard is a fun and flexible texture to play with. And for anyone who loves a good DIY project, try buying some chalkboard paint (you can find some at most craft or hardware store) and let your imagination run wild!

Here are some of my favourite chalkboard accessories:

korhani home at toronto’s world mastercard fashion week

At Style at Home, we so often look at where the worlds of fashion and decor intersect, whether the influence is from room to runway or runway to room, but it’s rare that we get to see these two bastions of style as fantastically combined as they were at Korhani Home’s fashion show.

loving the normann copenhagen line at homewerx

I’m smitten with the Normann Copenhagen line of Danish modern furnishings, available through Homewerx.

The classic colour palette and quirky lines make each piece uniquely interesting.

You can visit a Homewerx showroom in Vancouver, BC and check out these pieces in person, or shop online.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces from the collection…
