let's go to the ex

Once a year, the Toronto Exhibition open their doors to the young and adventurous. Attracting guests with popcorn, candy apples, silly games and exciting rides. My parents would take my brother and I to spend the whole day running around the fairgrounds, with big smiles from ear to ear. This yearly fair is only here for a few more days - hurry or you will have to wait until next year!

masculine monday | the beginning

Masculine design is a favourite of mine. You can brighten up a handsome space with lots of windows and white walls. Keep it simple with clean lines, minimal textures and few colours. Today I begin the Masculine Monday series!

fig love

Figs are one of my favourite fruits! They go wonderfully on a platter of sliced meat and cheese for entertaining guests. You may also want to try them as a delicious appetizer on a salad or sliced baguette.

let the fall fashion begin

With the days slowly getting shorter and shorter, I can begin to feel the fall air. Stores have started to put out their new lines of cozy attire and the leaves up in cottage country are beginning to turn. 

Below, Nimue Smit is modeling some new pieces from the H&M Divided collection on the Brooklyn Bridge. What a fun place to have a photo shoot with balloons!

jackie astier | elle decor

This Manhattan home is comfortable and glamorous at the same time. Jackie Astier has carried luxurious fabrics and warm woods throughout each space. Can you believe that her dining room took 10 coats of lacquer?!

I do apologize for not being on my blog for the last little while, I have been sick and super busy prepping for the fall! But after a long week of this and that I am off to the cottage!

architecture | bold & beautiful

Black is the colour that signifies timeless elegance. In both fashion and architecture, it radiates a striking boldness - add a splash of gold and it is a true classic.
