6. I am currently obsessed with étagères and this one simply takes my breath away. In silver-leaf, it is from Worlds Away.
7. The pacific blue seeded glass table lamp from Rumrunner Home provides additional light on the buffet/bar area. I love how the designers used only one on the buffet versus two. I’m a big fan of symmetry but in this case one lamp works.
I thought I would keep my list to seven, but I also love the coffered ceilings and all the tabletop dishware. Do you love this beach inspired dining room as much as I do?

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.
I just discovered a fabulously glamorous new blog through pinning madly away on Pinterest. The blog is called Home Styling and is written by Ana Antunes AND she is from Portugal….so naturally I was drawn to her as I am also Portuguese.
She runs a production company with her husband and is the Host of a Decorating Show in Portugal. I fell in love with the pictures of her office on her website and had to share them with you.
Below is the reception and waiting area. Love the black and white colour scheme….so chic and glam!
The next image is of her office. It is stunning. I’m a sucker for a good looking office with lots of glamour, especially since I am currently wanting to switch mine up.
Don’t you love the pink & white striped walls?
This is where her assistants work:
And the showroom. My goal is to have a similar looking showroom in the next 12 months.
All in all I think Ana’s office is a definite Glam Slam in my opinion. It’s fresh, with clean lines and very chic!!! What do you think?
Next week I have some exciting news to share with you!! Stay tuned. Have a fabulous weekend!
Happy Friday!! Great news: I’m quoted in the November issue of Canadian Living Magazine. I was contacted way back in late spring to offer some tips on “sexing” up your bedroom, and I totally forgot about it until a neighbour mentioned seeing the article. HA!
The article is called Sexual Healing and is written by freelance writer Rosemary Counter. In the article I talk about how to set the scene in your bedroom with some helpful tips. Below is a screenshot of the first page of the article.
There’s also other great advice in this article , along with other great topics inside the November issue, so hurry and pick it up!! Enjoy!
I remember completing a business paper on Estee Lauder when I was in New York getting my MBA. I was fascinated with the Lauder family, especially Aerin Lauder as she was a few years older than me and working in the family business.
When she announced last year she was leaving the family business to set up her own Home and Fashion lifestyle company appropriately called “Aerin” I was excited.
This women just oozes style and class, so I was eager to get a glimpse into her new Manhattan office. All I have to say is – very chic and very glam!!
It’s finally happening!! The Homework Room is finally getting completed! I literally put it on hold last winter/spring as I was busy with client projects (which is always a good thing). Then once the summer hit, we were too busy working on Project Dollhouse AKA the Bunkie.
You can catch up on my plans for the homework room here. The star of the room is going to be this wallpaper my daughters and I chose from Printers Guild Productions.
The wallpaper will only be on one wall, so I had to decide what colour to paint the remaining 2.5 walls. And of course this gorgeous wallpaper gave me 3 vibrant colour choices: Orange, Lilac or Raspberry.
The girls and I nixed the lilac…so now it was down to the orange or the raspberry / pink grapefruit flower as our colour inspiration.
I headed to my local Benjamin Moore Paint store and picked up 2 tester samples of Calypso Orange BM2015-30 and BM2008-30 Raspberry Blush to try on the walls next to the paper.
The minute I brushed the Calypso Orange onto the wall I knew it was the wrong choice…even with a 2nd coat (which I didn’t bother to do) I knew it would be too much for the room.
So I decided to go with Raspberry Blush. I was so excited about it that I tweeted out my colour choice to Benjamin Moore….and below is their response.
And here is the vision board I created for the Homework Room via Olioboard to give you a brief look at the look of the room that I want to achieve.
