Black, White and Copper
There’s a lot to love about this Stockholm apartment! Copper and rose gold seem to be catching up to brass as the new it color for accents and accessorizing. That Tom Dixon copper light fixture really anchors a black and white color palette and I’m loving the look of having two coffee tables of varying height for a living room. What I’m currently obsessing over are those copper hexagon mirrors from IKEA! I have a thing for honeycomb and geometric shapes so I love the way you can create your own pattern. Will definitely be recreating this!

Last week while taking a walk around the Mont Royal area, we stumbled on the restaurant La Salle À Manger. I kept hearing great things about it from friends so we thought we’d check it out. Upon walking in I was immediately smitten with the decor (duh). Bare-bulb pendants are hung in rows against tin walls and the hexagon tile has an old-world charm to it. The whole look makes me think of an upscale industrial cafeteria.

I ordered the smoked mackerel sandwich with a latte. I was surprised at how good the coffee was!  The photo of the sandwich may not look too impressive but the fish was super tender and full of flavour! 

If you go for drinks, definitely try the “Sang d’encre” beer—dark and super creamy!

The Perfect Kitchen Palette
This kitchen combines everything I’m loving lately. The brass trend shows no sign of stopping and I don’t want it to! This kitchen is pretty close to what I imagine my dream kitchen looking like—dark lower cabinetry with brass hardware, marble counter tops and as little upper cabinetry that I can get away with…just a few white cabinets and some open shelving. The intricate tiles provide a beautiful contrast to such a pure look.

Home Sweet Unexpected Home
I really enjoyed the refreshing style of this home tour so I wanted to share it with you all! When Claire Thomas, blogger behind The Kitchy Kitchen was house-hunting for a new home in LA, she encountered more than a few surprises. First of all, she never expected to fall in love with a “midcentury mod home on stilts” when she was originally looking for a Spanish colonial-style home in a “nice school district”. The more homes she saw in that style however, the more discouraged she became due to outdated kitchen and bathroom renos. The midcentury home is an architectural gem and sits on stilts 20 feet above the ground. She and her husband eventually began a series of renos that included opening up the kitchen to the living room and dining room. I love how they mixed organic wood pieces with gold accessories in the dining room and the green/gray backsplash in the kitchen is another standout! The original guest bathroom was covered in Gold lame wallpaper and wanting to keep the spirit of the room, the couple opted for gold and navy hexagon wallpaper paired with Jonathan Adler sconces. I am freaking out that the vanity and hardware were original to the house, it’s beyond gorgeous!

Fall Favorites
I thought I’d feature a couple of beauty products I’ve been loving lately and practice my product photography at the same time. I don’t usually post about makeup but these products have been working overtime compared to any others in my makeup bag!
1) Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
A bold name like this one better result in a bold look! The color is a rich, deep black and it really fans out and separates the lashes, which I love. The only downside is that it can clump a little if you take too long to apply it but other than that, it’s great for dramatic lashes.
2) NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu
Words cannot even begin to express how much I love this shade. I own 5 of the NYX butter glosses and this is the color I reach for the most. It’s a great everyday, brown-pink nude and for the cheap price, the color payoff is fantastic! As the name implies, the textures is buttery and non-sticky.
3) NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned
Welcome the witching hour with NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Damned. By witching hour I mean Fall/Halloween. I was trying to be creative. I was obsessing over this color for quite some time and finally got my hands on it after it had been sold out for a while. The color reminds me of crushed blackberries. It’s the perfect purple/raspberry color for Fall and surprisingly wearable. This color is going to be my go-to dramatic lip once the cooler weather hits. Fall Favorites

IKEA 2015 Catalog
Does anyone else feel like a kid at Christmas when the new IKEA catalog arrives in the mail? It reminds me of how I used to react when getting the Toys R’ Us catalog. I’d carry that thing around everywhere, dog-ear the pages and make notes for my parents. Yes, I was very thorough haha. Now I’ve moved on to IKEA! I always get a little giddy when this bad boy arrives. Above are some of my favorite styles that I spotted from the 2015 edition. If you haven’t gotten yours, it can be viewed here

I have always been a negative, impatient person. These two are pretty deadly characteristics on their own but when coupled together, man they can really wreak havoc on every aspect of your life. It’s ruined relationships, friendships and career opportunities. To some extent, I probably always will be both of these things but it doesn’t matter. What matters is learning to recognize those ugly voices in your head that say why not me and not mulling it over. Feeding off of these words will drain all of your motivational energy. Trust me, I know. Theodore Roosevelt once said that Comparison is the thief of joy. Well isn’t that the honest truth. No one likes to talk about jealousy because it carries with it a sort of petty connotation that no one wants to be associated with. Comparing yourself to others is the easiest, most instantaneous way to feel like crap. No other method will get you there faster and I’d really like to stop doing this.

I think once you’ve hit the age of 25 you naturally start to take stock of your life every once in a while. What have I accomplished, Who am I, What do I have to show for—these questions circle your mind like horses in a carousel and you just sit on one of them for a while, hoping the ride’ll stop.

Lately I always feel like nothing is ever enough. I haven’t accomplished enough, I’m not working hard enough, I don’t look good enough etc. Comparing yourself to others really is the thief of joy and jealousy can take on complex forms. Sometimes someone else’s happiness can inevitably remind you of what you don’t yet have. We tend to focus on why not me instead of me. Whenever you compare yourself to someone else, it’s easy to forget the things that are actually going right in your life.

The point is, even though you’re not one of those glass half full type of people, you just need to be happy with your glass because it’s the only one you’ve got. Not happy about what’s inside it? Make a change. A friend of mine who’s a teacher once told me a story that kind of stuck with me. She was trying to explain the glass half full/empty metaphor to a group of 5 year-olds when one of them raised their hand. “But Miss, if you don’t see the glass half full why don’t you just fill it?” From the mouth of babes, my friends.

Its really important to stop negative thoughts in their tracks and re-wire your brain to think positively. Choose to be happy and to make other people happy when you get the chance. Doing the littlest nice thing can completely brighten someone’s day. Actually, it’ll not only brighten their day, but their whole perspective. And they won’t forget it.

I promise, no more preachy posts for a while! If you’re looking for me to recommend some self-help books, you’ve come to the wrong place lol. You’ll mostly find pictures of pretty decor and food here. Thanks for reading!

As fall approaches I’m getting more and more excited about deep colors, rich scents, and lush fabrics so I thought this bedroom would be a perfect fit to my mood. This room was part of a project called Holiday House Hamptons in which 18 designers design luxury condos around a specific theme—the proceeds of which go to breast cancer research. I love the color of the wall! It’s that perfect midnight blue/black and looks gorgeous next to that white brick wall. The room is somber, modern and luxurious all at once as it contains a nice mix of natural textures and contemporary pieces such as the unique side table and lighting. And how clever is the framed art by Peter Buchman?

Wall-Mounted Box Shelving in the Kitchen
Open shelving has been popular for a while now and I’m kinda liking this variation on the trend. While I don’t think I’d use this style of shelving to replace all upper cabinetry, I’d definitely go for it on a smaller scale like mounted on a portion of the wall, or in a certain section of the kitchen. This look can be a great solution for small kitchens if you’re looking to avoid the bulk of traditional cabinetry and not to mention, way cheaper. There’s something really fun about this style so don’t be afraid to experiment! Arrange your boxes haphazardly for a deconstructed look or in a straight line for a cleaner vibe. If sleek and minimal is your jam, opt for a long rectangular box like the one pictured last.
So what’s your opinion? Are you loving this trend or does it look like someone ran out of money to complete their upper cabinets? Comment Ballin’ or Broke to let me know.

Nate Berkus for Target, Fall 2014
Here’s a sneak peek at the new Fall collection by Nate Berkus for Target. You all know how I have a love-hate relationship with Target, right? I love how affordable and trendy their home decor collection is but I hate how every time I go, the shelves are 80% empty. So very sad. No one does earthy-glam better than Nate Berkus and his most recent collection for Target is no exception. This time there’s brass everywhere so naturally I’m super happy. He also seems to be introducing a mythical element this time around with crowns, laurel leaves, snakes, wings etc. Above, you’ll find some of my personal picks from the collection which will be available in stores starting Aug. 31st.
