Beachside Home

I have a hard time resisting a good beach home tour. This Cohasset Massachusetts seaside residence is designed by Katie Rosenfeld Design. It's full of crisp white woodwork, a variety of blue tones combined with unique touches of coral. My favourite parts are the all white kitchen with the subtle aqua tiles and that daring coral front door!

New York Studio

I was so excited when I came across this pretty studio apartment in Manhattan designed by Paul Davis. It's loaded with all of my favourite things; custom built-ins, a grey/white/black palette, marble and even a wood burning fireplace. I could definitely move right in!

Around the Net


1. I have the worst luck picking peaches. Go here for advice on picking the perfect peach.
2. This before/after dining room by the talented Sherry is so pretty.
3. There is so much affordable original art on Etsy.
4. I want to make this salad.
5. If you live in Toronto you will recognize this rainbow tunnel. Guess how much the painting sold
    for?
6. It's true, the cupcake is dead.
7. Love this kitchen. See the before shot here. You won't believe your eyes.
8. Would love to get my hands on this huge and affordable (if there is such a thing) NYC apartment.

Zara "Does" Chanel

Every once in a while there is something really good at Zara.
Right now it is this Chanel inspired jacket. I really need it, but of course it is sold out everywhere.
I would wear this constantly...probably with heals and jeans or little black flats and jeans or black skinny jeans and gold jewelery...
See, I am trying to justify spending 2 hours trying to hunt one down.
Should I?
The price is right after all!

Remember Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine?

See, it's cute...


Also at Zara...more faux Chanel.

Kitchen Renovation




It has been ages and ages since I've done a Small Space Style post so I thought it was about time!


For this installment I have a kitchen renovation in a 300 square foot West Village apartment owned by Jennifer Pade. Jennifer has a diary of the complete renovation with everything from design inspiration, budget and dealing with NY co-op boards on Apartment Therapy.

I can not believe my eyes! The before photos show a crumbling kitchen with ancient appliances, almost no counter space and not even one drawer.

The final results are amazing! Jennifer used Ikea cabinets and was able to incorporate ample storage, a GE speed oven and even a dishwasher in a drawer all in a space about 8x6!

Chambray Blazer

I love the blazers from Two Penny Blue. The quality and fit are amazing and for every blazer purchased a school uniform is donated to a girl in Africa. I have the Cambridge Blazer in red and it is one of my all time favourite pieces of clothing. Here I have paired it with white and gold.


I was excited to see that the newest Cambridge blazer for summer is now available in chambray. What's really neat about this newest version is that it can be monogrammed! I think I had better start saving up my nickles because I really need to order one!








I've put together a couple of looks for the Cambridge Blazer, one casual and one a little more on the dressy side.

Not Your Granny's Florals

Fun and colourful floral paintings.
Painted by Laura Jones.
See more of her art here.
Makes me want to get out the paints and try one. (Maybe, almost?)
I think they would look great in a space like this...


What do you think?
