inspiration from the home depot dreambook

When I was a kid, I eagerly awaited the arrival of the Sears Wish Book at Christmas time. I’d pore over the pages, fantasizing about all the toys I hoped Santa would leave under the tree.

The 2012 DreamBook is filled with gorgeous photos and ideas for helping anyone turn their home into a stunning space, one that’s fit to grace the pages of any style magazine … you know, like Style at Home!

cookbook giveaway: joe beef

If you love to indulge in good comfort food and are in Montreal, you must check out Joe Beef.
