Featured at ~ Recent Loves

Hello Monday! Hope you all are staying warm as we went from nice fall weather right into winter over the last 48 hours.  I guess we did have it good so far in Toronto and it's almost the end of November after all ... and I will be in Vienna in less than 1 month! CAN'T WAIT ... especially for the Christmas Markets!

As my next #eurovacay countdown continues and before I start thinking about my next #OneRoomChallenge, I want to share with you some recent loves from my favorite magazine + brands!

The Small Space Issue is packed with inspiring ideas and ingenious solutions to help us living large with limited square footage.  My condo was featured in Style at Home 4 years ago and as most people tend to shy away from bold patterns and colors in small spaces, I'd say the dining room is the perfect place to step outside your comfort zone and do what your heart desires!

I have also been dreaming to give my dining room a makeover lately ... will keep you posted on that in 2017.

And as I flipped through the pages of the Small Space Issue, look at what I have found: an image of Chris' condo not yet published!  I love this shot by Donna showcasing the stunning Bocci pendants, the elegant Brizo Faucet, my beautiful stools by Sarah Richardson, and of course the DIY barn board detail (from Stikwood) on the island!

You have also seen a fair bit of my kitchen makeover for One Room Challenge:

You all know I love treasure hunting and especially at HomeSense.  I love the fact that you just never know what you may find and I rarely leave the store empty-handed.  So when the lovely ladies at HomeSense asked me to team up for a brilliant campaign in the fall for the very reason, how could I say no right?

For that particular shopping trip, I was looking for quartz / crystal accessories.  As you can see, I found what I was looking for ... and then some, including these brightly coloured lucite trays (on clearance!) and the most delicious elderflower sparkling beverage!    

Love the promotion in October and check out these fun images!

Thanks so much for dropping by and it's all about the Holidays on DesignMaze from here on.  Come back on Thursday to see my first Christmas special of 2016.
