Style at Home Limited Edition Collection

Remember last week I shared that I was going to the Style at Home Breakfast in Bed event? Well, it was this past Tuesday and let me tell the entire collection is lovely.

My favourites? The Tallulah bedding and accent trays. I think this might just be the beginning of my holiday shopping.

The entire Style at Home Special Edition Collection is available online only, click here to visit or shop. Everything is available for a limited time only, so if you like something get it while it lasts. Here’s a collection of snapshots from the event…

Wheatgrass Wednesday

If you follow me on instagram you’ve likely noticed my snapshot of ‘wheatgrass’.

I started a pilates class a few weeks ago, and before heading to class I pick up a one once shot of wheatgrass juice from Booster Juice. Half price on Wednesdays, so it’s a good thing.

“wheatgrass juice is literally condensed sunlight energy.”


Wheatgrass is said to be one of the most potent green foods in the world, where 1 fl. oz. of wheatgrass juice is equivalent to 2½ pounds of the choicest vegetable.

Wondering what it tastes like? Well, it tastes like grass. Not great, but lucky for me, the lovely lady at the Booster Juice gives me a little more of my energy shake to wash it down with afterwards.

You can find out all about the benefits of wheatgrass by visiting the Livestrong website here. The Livestrong site has a vast amount of helpful information; wheatgrass for allergies to wheatgrass while pregnant and fresh vs. powder.

Bistro Tables {Love}

I have a thing for small bistro tables.

The look has me thinking about cappuccino and biscotti.

I love them even in an office setting…

White Washed Floors

The white washed floors in the 2012 Princess Margaret Showhome appears to be a favourite feature for a handful of bloggers who attended blogger event with me a few weeks back. Have you checked out the official event recap by Seema from House & Home yesterday? Pop over and check out the video at the very end of the post.

I think white washed floors are a great way to make a space feel light and airy, calming even, but I favour it more in a vacation home or cottage over a primary home. Here’s a collection of spaces with white washed floors that are beautiful none the less…

Without a doubt there’s something intriguing about the look of white washed floors, however the thought of the care needed for keeping it scuff mark free still has me turning away.

What are your thoughts?

Kitchens Without Upper Cabinets

Kitchens without upper cabinets. Could you do it? While I think it makes the space feel much more open and less kitchen like, I’m not quiet sure I could forego the storage space. But then again, if I was building new, or considering a big renovation, and could include ample storage elsewhere, perhaps I would consider it. No upper cabinets equals more room for windows, floating shelves or artwork! Perhaps.

Modern Architecture With Warm Elements

Much like the 2012 Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome I shared earlier this week, this house brings together modern architecture with warm elements. To me, this ranch like home says ‘stay while and relax’ which is fabulous after a long work day.

Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome

If you follow me on twitter you might remember I attended the Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome Blogger event last week.

Designed by Lynda Reeves, of Canadian House and Home, and her fabulous team, this year’s showhome impresses again. Offering plenty of swoon worthy elements, this house brings together the best of rustic / modern / sleek / industrial decor and does it in a way that feels comfortable.

Some of my favourite elements…

  • the sleek industrial door leading into the family room {which echoes all the exteriors doors}
  • the huge kitchen offering seating, television watching and still room to build a train track {or two!} on the floor
  • the three walls of windows in the kitchen floods the room with light – fabulous!
  • the full length window in the main hall is fabulous {just as it was in the 2009 showhome}
  • all the rustic ‘real-wood’ touches that balance all the metal {the floating shelves and the mini painters bench in the family room are favourites}
  • every bathroom is beautiful {all six of them!}
  • the L-shaped house architecture is a nice change from the common square/rectangular box
  • the landscaping in the front and back {the L-shape allowed for a nice courtyard feel in the backyard, great for summer get-togethers!}

Enough to get you contributing to a good cause?
