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!

one of a kind spring show & sale – part two

I’m sharing my top 8 fave discoveries from the One of a Kind Spring Show & Sale, over two posts. Did you miss the first one? Check it out right here.

Let’s wrap things up today with my final 4 picks…

 

1. Avril Loreti

Avril’s work is clearly an expression of her own personality… Bright, energetic and fun. Her booth was definitely hard to miss. It was positively bursting with colour and pattern. I was drawn in by her geometric pillows & held captive by her playful tea towels. Don’t be surprised to see us collaborate in the future.

colourful outdoor side tables

Spring is one of my favourite times of year and I’m always grateful for the burst of colour that comes with the season. I take delight in watching the sky brighten, the grasses green and the flowers bud. All of these hint at the beauty that will take shape later in the season.

If you’re looking to give your backyard a similar lift, take cue from nature and inject colour with chic and cheerful side tables. Strong enough to resist the weather elements and small enough to move around on a whim, these little tables pack springtime punch that’s sure to satisfy your colour cravings.


Stick to a tight budget with a simple indoor/outdoor metal side table sprayed your favourite hue. Photography Credit: Crate and Barrel | Pedestal Side Table | $50.05 CDN.
