missoni for target madness at the nyc launch party

My love for Missoni is well-documented on the pages of Style At Home – just take a look at September’s Style News Palette and my apartment as seen in the June issue and the proof is in the pudding. So you can imagine my delight when a hook-up through Target’s Minneapolis headquarters resulted in my mother and I being invited to the New York City launch party of the Missoni for Target collection on Wednesday night!

modern decor for babies

039 modern decor for babies

When I was designing my nursery I came across Monte, a Canadian manufacturer who makes gliders that fit into more modern home decor. It was refreshing to know that there were companies out there that took modern approaches to baby items. Although we didn’t get our glider from them, we bought our son Oscar this little Cubino chair from them for our TV room. Oscar is already in love (see him pictured above in it!)

I fell in love with the the charcoal and green colour combo as it was soft and soothing and went with the rest of the decor in our house.

Monte Cubino Chair, $109 + shipping.

taking the plunge: my first bite of a deep-fried oreo

Having lived in Toronto for only a handful of months, there are a lot of places that I have not yet had a chance to visit. I was told by a myriad of people that going to the CNE was a must. With only a few weeks of warm weather left, I finally made my way to the Ex this past Sunday.  I saw the farm animals, walked through all the attractions and games and, maybe most importantly, had my first bite of a deep-fried Oreo.

decorating trend: chevrons

Untitled 18 decorating trend: chevrons

Chevrons are so popular these days! From pillows to handbags, the pattern isn’t exclusive to either home decor or fashion. When I was coming up with my new stationery line for the Fall/Winter collection, I was obsessed with the chevron pattern. But I was also really inspired by the awesome colours that I’m seeing in interiors, bright bold 80s colours – so I made my version of the chevron pattern and created the Mod Chevron Card [no 1 above]. It’s actually one of the best selling cards in my shop, so I guess I’m not the only one gaga for this print! Here are some other things I adore in Chevron.
