Meet Tootsie. She is my Scottish fold kitten, who is of the Lol Cats persuasion that “if it fits i sits,” as evidenced by her perch in my stock pot. (Cat soup, anyone?) I’m forever finding her in strange places, such as shoes, drawers, the fridge, etc. Adorable as she may look in these – ahem – resourceful spots, I think the time has come to get Tootsie her very own place, so I’ve been scouring the net for cat beds. Check out a few of my favourite finds so far.

I’m in love with New York-based fashion designer Mara Hoffman’s graphic boho prints and vibrantly coloured pieces (as evidenced in this post). Her attention-grabbing home decor collection with Anthropologie has been all the rage among the style set this summer, so it seems fitting that I’ve dedicated our Decor VS. Fashion post to her.
So, if you had $170 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: A Mara Hoffman-designed floor pillow or tank top?
I recently renovated my main bathroom – the one I share with every member of my family. While accessorizing I searched high and low for a new soap dish – something functional, but still good looking, one that would elevate a simple bar of soap. Here are a few of the ones I found:

Put your mark on your next pot luck offering with a rolling pin that’s embossed with a your monogram. Australia-based Denis Savelyev will hand-carve your initials into a sturdy birch pin. Even the most rustic of pies will be oozing with class – not to mention a yummy filling! And if pressing your moniker into your baked goods doesn’t appeal to you, perhaps a graphic pattern or swirly motif is more your style.

Knowing me, it’s not a total shocker that black and white was my choice palette for more than one of the bathrooms in my home. The September issue of Style At Home features what I like to call my deco bath, which earned its moniker thanks to its original 30s bathtub and vintage-inspired scheme.
