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:

my deco bathroom: before and after

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.
