throwback thursday: which may cover is your favourite?

Our May 2014 issue hit newsstands this week, featuring living, dining and decorating ideas that work indoors and out. The cover embraces the best of the season with a casual outdoor oasis, offering you a seat in the inviting grey resin wicker furniture. The light grey palette actually makes the greenery look even more fresh and lush, don’t you think?

To celebrate our latest issue and finally being able to enjoy the outdoors as much as the indoors (well, soon hopefully), we’re looking back at our past May covers. Which one is YOUR favourite?

stylist staple: ikea hotdogs

I frequent Ikea quite a bit – minimum once a week. I know to some of you this might be too often (especially during the weekend crush), but to a stylist/decorator it is just a fact of life. With this often comes needing to pick-up something quick to eat. My go to is the Ikea hotdog – not the greatest thing to put in your body, but tasty and convenient when on the run. I like to wash it down with the Swedish Lingonberry drink. If only they had dill pickles to top it off.

trendspotting: citrus

So, we’ve talked about the watercolour trend for spring, and I’ve shared my love for Moroccan wedding blankets. Now, I’d like to talk about citrus. Citrus colours and motifs are really having a moment, and I couldn’t be happier. I think yellow is such a happy hue (and looks fetching when paired with cobalt blue or kelly green), and don’t even get me started on tangerine and grapefruit. If I’m looking for a pop of colour or an accent, citrus ones are usually my go-to. What do you think?

editor’s pick: smells like canada candles

While we all bid winter a warm adieu (if you get my drift), there’s one cold weather essential that I keep in my home year round – candles.

During the biting cold, there’s certainly nothing more cozy than a roaring fire. And on those short days, when night falls fast and steady, there’s a calm comfort in the glow of candlelight dancing around my apartment. No matter what the weather may be, it’s this sense of peace that keeps candles burning in my home constantly.

With the warmer months just around the corner, I’m excited for beaches, hikes and campfires, which is probably why Smells Like Canada caught my eye.

flower arranging: 3 fab spring centrepieces

One of my favourite part of my jobs is getting to go to interesting press events. I’m not able to go often – the Style at Home editorial and design team attend – but I love when I can get out of the office to be inspired. Today I went to a media launch for Kitchen Aid’s new Pro Line countertop appliances and the event exceeded my expectations. The appliances were spectacular (more on that later) but so were the floral arrangements that were used to decorate the space. When I first walked in to the event space I was struck by the beauty of this arrangements of red roses and tulips (yes, those are tulips!)

yay or nay: small space single bookshelf

Being a bachelorette apartment dweller, I’m always looking for smart small space storage solutions. Using whatever vertical space available is always recommended but sometimes renters, like myself, are not able to drill large holes for shelves and wall-mounted units.

Could the solution be this simple, single bookshelf?
