Did you receive the latest issue of Dabble Magazine in your inbox? Its all about celebrating the upcoming Holiday season. I absolutely love the Christmas tree on the over….the blues and purples are gorgeous and not your typical traditional Christmas colours.
Lately I have been majorly crushing on anything GOLD. And I talk about this in my latest What’s Trending column, as you can see from the image below.
There’s also more Golden goodness on the Dabble Blog. If you are so over silver and chrome in your home, then hopefully these featured products will inspire you to add some glamorous gold into your home decor for 2013.
To also help you get into the Christmas spirit, My friend, Nicolas Rosaci, the resident Dabble DIY Guy has some great DIY ideas to enhance your gift wrapping this season.
Later this week I will give you a holiday tour of my house all decorated for Christmas. In the meantime, there is only 6 more days left till Christmas…..Yikes!! Good luck!!
On a more serious note: As a mother of 2 young girls, I was heartbroken about the terrible tragedy in Connecticut that had 20 beautiful children taken from their parents. Our children and families are so precious and we must never take them for granted. Please kiss and hug your loved ones today and everyday. I know I am.
The latest issue of Dabble Magazine went live on Thursday and its dedicated to the gorgeous city of Barcelona, one of my most favourite cities in the world.
During my trip to Barcelona, I became obsessed with Gaudi, the famous Spanish architect. In a future blog post I will share all the pictures I took of the magnificent structures he designed, including Casa Batllo and Sagrada Familia.
I highly recommend that you read this issue online and you may catch a glimpse of me on the streets of Barcelona!
I have great memoires of visiting the Museu Picasso and riding the Hop On Hop Off Tourist Bus….highly recommend doing this if you ever visit Barcelona.
And or course, inside the fabulous pages of the new issue of Dabble is my latest What’s Trending column where I showcase the powerful colour combination of yellow and grey!!
And if you missed last Tuesday’s episode of Dabble Day on Cityline where I talk about my 3 favourite home decor trends for fall, then click on the picture below and it will take you to my segment. Yup, I talk about yellow and grey.
Let me know what you think of the latest issue and be sure to subscribe to Dabble so you automatically receive the next issue in your inbox!!
Tomorrow is Dabble Day on Cityline!!! And I’m on the show (hurray) with Kimberley Seldon and Nicholas Rosaci. Dabble Day is all about Spain, as we explore Barcelona style in decor and food, plus a great DIY project by Nicholas with maps. In my segment I am talking about three of my favourite decor trends for the fall season: Ombre, Yellow & Grey colour Combo, and masculine decor which I have dubbed Masculine Sophisticate.
I was a little bit nervous as its been a while since I’ve appeared on Cityline so I totally felt like it was my first time again. Hopefully it doesn’t come across on camera but we shall see tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9am and 3pm eastern time. We are always our worst critic aren’t we?
Below are a few pictures from last week’s taping. Thanks to Nicholas’ fabulous partner Johnny for talking these photos!!
Here I am getting my Demo Table set up just before my decor segment begins taping. That’s the lovely Tracy Moore in the background admiring a gorgeous houndstooth throw from Urban Barn.

And of course, all the guest experts posing with Tracy.
If you are able to watch it tomorrow, let me know what you think!!
The latest issue of Dabble Magazine went live at the end of July but since internet is quite spotty up at Emerald Lake I wasn’t able to blog about it.
If you haven’t had a chance to read the June-July issue then click on the cover below and get caught up on all the Dabble goodness!
My current What’s Trending column is all about Ombre in home decor. One piece is all you need to add this fun effect into your home.
My good friend Nicholas Rosaci, Dabble’s DIY Guy has created a very stylish DIY project for this issue. He really is sooooooo creative.
Dabble also has an IPAD contest running right now. See below for all 3 ways you can enter and win this great prize!
Believe it or not, I’m currently working on the next issue highlighting fall trends which is my favourite time of the year for fashion and interior design. Can`t wait to share it with you next month.
Well, that`s it for now. I`m off to work on my Bunkie so I can share with you another progress update.
I am way overdue for a Decorate as You Dress blog post and the recent purchase of these fabulous floral wedge heels inspired me. Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous for spring/summer. And what an easy look to incorporate into your home decor this season. Love the feminine chintz pattern on these seat cushions (image from Style at Home magazine)
Here are a few more images from the same home featured in the April Colour issue of Style at Home Magazine.
And of course, you can never go wrong with having fresh flowers in every room!!
In the latest spring issue of Dabble Magazine I wrote how Florals in home decor are a constant trend during the spring/summer season. You can read my latest column here.
So, will you incorporate something flowery into your closet and home decor this season. Let me know by leaving a comment below!!
Happy Victoria Day long weekend to my fellow Canadian friends!!
In the latest issue of Dabble Magazine, a gorgeous Arizona home designed by one of my favourite interior designers, Jamie Herzlinger is featured. And because it is so glamorous, I thought it would be perfect for a Glamour Friday post.
This stunning 19th century Dutch corbeille shaped canapé greets visitors when they walk into this 7000 sq. ft. home.
I love this very glamorous foyer with neutral grass cloth covered walls, the fabulous marquetry commode and the stunning mirror above it make for a GLAM SLAM!
This living room is so glamorous with all the sumptuous velvets and silks in this room. And you can never go wrong with decorating in unforgettable plums and purples mixed in with neutral greys. Oh so very elegant!! Love it!
The master bedroom is very calm and serene decorated in a neutral palette mixed with lots of whites. I guess the lesson here is that it’s ok to put the bed against a wall of windows when it’s the only way to ensure that the bed remains the focal point of the room.
This sitting area goes extra glam with nail head detail on the chair and ottoman, a large mirror and lots of gold and brass accents.
This home designed by Jamie Herzlinger is truly a luxe retreat!
If you want to create a glamorous space in your home for 2012, then contact me online or via twitter…I’d love to help!
