Converted Barn

Love the light feeling in this barn style home…so bright and open. Any place with these high ceilings really does it for me. Concrete floors and white furniture…now really what could be better!! That little touch of orangey/yellow in the kitchen is pretty good too don't you think?

 

Enjoy!

Home and Fashion: Dare to Compare

Last week I did a post comparing home decor and food styling.....As I said last week I think there is always a link between what we see in fashion, food styling and home decor. Don't you just see these girls strolling into these homes? What do you think? Do you love the look?

Pretty Apartment on Entrance

Pretty apartment on Entrance, a site for buying and selling real estate, with wonderful high ceilings and gorgeous mouldings. The chandeliers in the living room and kitchen are perfect to accent the architectural details of the apartment. Lots of bright white and grey walls keep it light and clean playing off the white and herringbone floors. I could move right in!

Pink Revisted

I am starting to feel that spring is not far off here in Montreal...yes we still have snow on the ground...but this pink is the perfect way to introduce the new season. I am so tired of dark boots, coats, and sweaters!! Loving the way the pink is used in these photos from all out pink bed to a shot of pink in the couch. A rustic pink wall to a pretty spring wool coat...bring it on!

Home and Food Styling

Sometimes when I am looking through my pins I have the sense that the decorators and the food stylists are working together…but as we know one trend influences the other so it is not a surprise. I often have the same feeling with fashion and home and it is sure the styles , textures, colours work one off of the other. So here is my version of food and home styling comparisons. I love them!

Exclusive with Food 52

So happy to announce my collaboration with Food 52! The super salad bowl…exclusively at Food52!

I have been working on a wonderful salad bowl…you know the perfect size that you can use everyday….that serves two to four people. The bowl is very organic in shape and has a wonderful texture that I press into the clay on the underside of the bowl. It has a really glossy white glaze..very yummy. This bowl is sold exclusively on the Food 52 website. Now if you don't know Food 52 and you love to cook and eat…well get on over there because that is the place for you! Super recipes and so much more….also a short article on 5 reasons you should be using bowls to serve and eat your food with a little info on my process.

Oh and check out my new video on making a Banana Pecan Bread here….(you can see the bowl in action!!)

Decor: Striped Rugs

I bought a striped rug last year for my living room and I really love it. It is a great accent piece in a room that basically has no other pattern. I like the added texture but I have kept it in a neutral to match the rest of the room. There are so many reasonably priced striped carpets in wool or cotton and of course the black and white stripe one from Ikea is always a good choice.
