french chateau

This spectacularly beautiful 18th century French chateau reflects a classic style on the outside with a modern twist on the inside. The minimalist design scheme creates a graceful flow from room to room. The width of the planks of wood on the floors are to-die-for! I don't think I have ever seen them that big! 

This magnificent place is on the market for $6.7 million - oh to dream!

masculine monday | forest green

A rich colour trend this season is forest green. This handsome dark colour is going to be a staple in your wardrobe and a colourful accent in your home. Forest green blends wonderfully with dark leathers and sophisticated woods - perfect for a masculine room!

A simple and fast way to get forest green into your home could be by adding a luscious plant or some fabulous accent pillows.

We have seen this colour for decades as a "classic" and it is so refreshing to see it back again.

rainy friday

We have been very lucky here in Toronto with the weather. Most days are very sunny and hot which has kept a big smile on my face! We knew the rain was coming soon but did it have to happen on a Friday?! Luckily I have my classic Club Monaco trench and sturdy Hunter rain boots with me!

Step inside the Manhattan home of iconic fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg. Her lively charm is splashed all over this rooftop penthouse located above her store. I am drooling over all of the animal prints and original artwork!

hotel dom

The colour palate alone at the Hotel Dom has convinced me that this is a place I must visit! The bright and cheery colours mixed with a white backdrop is heavenly. This happening spot is close to Utrecht in the Netherlands incase you're in the neighbourhood.

nopi in london

I have finished my first week of graphic design school and I am now even more obsessed with type and font! I came across this modern restaurant with clean lines and simple details.

Here Design has payed impeccable attention to detail with branding Nopi in London. They have carried their signature style throughout the restaurant and have created an elegant eating space.
