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!

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.

pinterest boards we love {home office design}

In order to get the creative juices flowing on a daily basis, I require a few specific things: tea, great music blasting through a set of headphones and an inspiring workspace in which to spend my 9 to 5. Of course, everybody’s idea of wonderful home office design is completely different. While a formal desk is paramount for some, a comfy beanbag chair will suffice for others and all sorts of interesting options reside between the two, which is why the Style at Home team loves perusing Pinterest. Here are a few of our favourite home office design boards.
