best counter-worthy bath products: aesop hand wash

While I’m slowly but surely making over my bathroom, I’ve been on the hunt for counter-worthy bath products and toiletries. Since I prefer clear countertops (for both style and sanity), I only buy items with attractive packaging – unless, of course, I’m stowing them away in my cabinets. I’d like to share my latest obsession: Aesop’s hand wash and hand balm.

woodland adventure

Hello all! I am heading up north to camp for a few days, and thought why not share with you a couple of my favourite woodland and nautical rooms on Style at Home, plus a sophisticated yet playful board I put together for a boy’s room.

This “woods” wallpaper from Cole & Son is definitely one of my all time favourites.  While the nature inspired pattern makes it the perfect choice at the cottage, the contemporary illustration and the colorways make it super chic in a modern contemporary space.  I love the soft, romantic look in this room, especially how the pale lavender accents juxtaposed with the masculine woodland backdrop.

Friday happy hour is back with a summery spin!

editor’s pick: cat beds

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.

decor vs. fashion: mara hoffman floor cushion or tank top

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?

The hunt for a new soap dish

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:
