House Tours: Ida of Sukkertøy for Øyet, Norway

2011-12-03T06:49:55.460-08:00

Do you ever discover a blog that immediately casts a spell on you?? Where you know it's going to be long night because if you don't get through the entire archive you won't be able to sleep?? That's how I felt when I laid my eyes on the dreamy home of Ida and her blog Sukkertøy for øyet. I didn't need Google Translate to tell me that meant "Candy for the Eye" in Norwegian. And candy it IS.



House Tours: Sylvie Rochon, Montreal

2011-12-03T06:49:55.460-08:00

One of my most favourite spaces in a long time was this fun, fresh apartment in Montreal, recently featured in Style at Home. As the owner of vintage furniture boutique Spoutnik, Sylvie Rochon certainly has an eye for vintage treasures and has showcased her collection beautifully throughout her home. Painting the walls and floors in all white throughout, with only small black accents, gives

How To: Dry Erase board

2011-12-03T06:49:55.461-08:00

The magic of the idea of dry erase markers and dry erase boards is never ending, especially considering how many things can be a dry erase board. Case in point: this DIY project we spotted on Real Simple. Imagine: a cool modern frame or a crazy-detailed vintage frame, combined with a fabric and paper in a pattern and color palette that fit your personality. Imagine putting these in a useful spot

tim walker’s vivienne westwood.when i was a kid growing up, everything in our house was green, orange and yellow. i liked to call it ‘peas, carrots & corn’ – just like the little vegetable nibblets you’d find in a frozen tv dinner on a friday night, when you’re parents would leave you home with the babysitter. i’m seeing a lot of it all over again – major flashback time! so here you go…this week,

Cul-de-sac Prints

2011-12-03T06:49:55.462-08:00

I love large-scale prints. Even though they’re usually expensive, they make such a statement that they’re hard to resist. These prints from the team at Cul-de-sac are great. Created by art director Marco Cicchianni, each piece — inspired by classic Italian and Danish design and pop-art colors — is part of a limited edition of 20 prints and measures 33 x 47 inches. You can check out (and order)

Iris Apfel's Over-the-Top Apartment

Iris Apfel, ageless bon vivant and co-founder of textile house Old World Weavers, deservedly receives the royal treatment in the June issue of Architectural Digest.  The nearly nonagenarian, who once wore a priest cassock just for the hell of it, takes ADreaders into her luxe and layered New York City apartment. The walls in Apfel's living room are 18th-century bleached-oak boiserie. The bombé

Pom Pom Pillow

2011-12-03T06:49:55.465-08:00

This really is a simple pillow to make.  It's just rows of pom-pom fringe sewn on with a zig-zag stitch.  The back is an easy envelope closure.  Really, the hardest part was coming up with a color combination.  I was pretty much at the mercy of what Joann's had in stock, but I could see this done all in one color, or different hues of the same color. Instructions after the jump...Materials:14"
