I’m always on the hunt for that one-of-a-kind thing that has a story as rich as my own.
I think every room should have at least one conversation piece — something that piques your curiosity and makes you want to take a closer look. This sideboard with its unique parquet doors and mid-century styling is that piece.
Texture is so important in a room, which is why this sculptural wood stool has been on my wish list forever. I could easily put one of these in my bathroom, living room or bedroom.
Some vases look good empty, while others require a bunch of flowers to be worthy of display. This vase falls into the former category. With its columnar shape and subtle metallic finish, it’s handsome on a dining room buffet or placed on a shelf.
The unique tones in this rug make it a showstopper in my books. Pick up one of the secondary colours for your furniture and walls and throw in some caramel leather accent pieces.
I’ll let you in on a secret — rugs make a room. It’s always the place I start when designing a space from scratch. Once you figure the base out, you can do the rest: colour palette, fabrics, lighting and accessories.
This dusty, desert pink hue feels like the colour of the moment. What a great way to update that cream or grey sofa in your living room without spending the moon.
If you choose the right kind, hurricane lanterns are one of those items that can be used year-round. This one, made with woven iron, moves easily between indoor and outdoor spaces and looks as good on a mantel as it does poolside.
This throw is probably the nicest gift you could give someone. These super-soft stonewashed linen throws have a good weight to them, and the subtle fringe edging is just the right amount of flourish.
My favourite look for bedrooms right now is a neatly made bed with a long lumbar pillow as the only accent. It feels modern and clean after bedscapes that have been piled with so many accent pillows.
If I had a cottage, I’d buy these inexpensive round rugs made of 100 per cent jute in multiples. They feel summery and tropical and look smashing in an all-white colour scheme. I might even try hanging one on a wall.
There’s something very cool and collected about this botanical quilt set. The refreshing aqua and white colour palette is perfect for hot summer nights.
I predict you’ll be reaching for these tongs more often than you think. Whether it’s a family-style dinner or an outdoor barbecue, these stylish kitchen accessories come in handy for serving a variety of foods.
