removable wallpaper for renters

I rent my Toronto apartment, so I’ve never considered putting up wallpaper. But these removable wallpaper tiles from Hygge & West are amazing – and WAY less of a commitment. Wouldn’t the wallpaper be lovely in a powder room or entryway wall?

colour of the year – benjamin moore

I recently went to a media event for Benjamin Moore‘s new colour line for 2015. Not only did they launch a collection of colours, but they also picked a colour of the year – no pressure there 😉 I’m not one to dabble in colour – grey to me is a colour, but I was throughly surprised with the new palette and actually thought that I might be able to incorporate colour into my own, yes my own house!! My favourite colour was the colour of the year – Gilford Green HC-116 – part of their historic collection. Here are some images of it incorporated into rooms.

decor vs. fashion: metallic vase or dress?

Our sister brand, Elle Canada, launched an exclusive holiday dress collection with RW&CO. (available in stores and online starting tomorrow, November 1), and I couldn’t be more thrilled; after all, who doesn’t love dressing up?

Since I’m usually pretty conservative when it comes to party clothes and, let’s face it, home decor as well, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone with a very sparkly Decor vs. Fashion post. Here’s hoping this will inspire all of us to shake things up!

So, which would you choose: an opulent mosaic vase or sequined dress?

nesting with nest

My first floor renovation is finally coming to an end. One of the most exciting things to happen was the installation of the Nest thermostat. First off it is a thing of beauty – round, black, and shiny – it almost looks like jewelry on my wall. Secondly it is smart and can program itself and finally, my favourite feature, is that I can adjust it wirelessly from my iPhone or tablet. So I can be lying in bed and not have to run downstairs to turn the temperature up or down. I know I’m lazy, but to me this is a luxury.

who knew this is how sarah jessica parker lives

It’s official. Our Style at Home web team is obsessed with’s 73 Question web series. Sure, we love learning more about our favourite celebs, but we would be lying if we said we weren’t in it for the home decor.

Although we love us some Sarah Jessica Parker (who doesn’t?), we couldn’t help but spend the Sex and the City star’s interview focused on her home decor. If you’re picturing SJP’s New York City brownstone to have a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque style, think again! We didn’t get a glimpse inside any closets, but what we did see is one very eclectic and colourful home. Decorated with books, artwork and one-of-a-kind accessories (including a collection of globes), this space might surprise you.

diy: upholstered headboard

I did it. I finally made my upholstered headboard – and (surprisingly) it was easy! For anyone needing to add a little ‘umph’ to their bedroom decor, I highly suggest you give a DIY headboard a go. Here’s mine – it really makes the bed more of a focal point in my farmhouse room. Click to read my steps for how I crafted this together. The room is almost complete – now it’s just desperate for artwork!! So close to calling this project a wrap!
