House Tour | Margo & Me

Blogger Jenny Bernheim (and her French bulldog Margo) opened her lovely home to Domaine last month, and it really is a stellar place:

I love love love the Beverly Palms watercolor print by The Aestate ($61):

And PS - you must follow Jenny on instagram. Her images are whimsically stunning! Think Paris in the springtime, tea & crumpets, beautiful Chanel bags, and Margo the Frenchie of course ;)

Oh, and Jenny is planning a wedding in France, so my guess is many more beautiful images to come!

A Fresh New Look

Hello my friends! Welcome back, my sincere apologies for being 'missing in action' last week - we were busy cleaning up the blog & getting gussied up with a fabulous new look! I hope you like it, take a look around, things should be a bit sleeker and hopefully easier to find around here.

And on that note, I would love to start the week off by getting some feedback from all of my friends out there (that means YOU!). I've been keeping pretty regular with a few select post series on this blog, but I'd really love to take this opportunity to ask you what you would like to see a little more of, and what you would like to see a little less of. Here are 4 features that are currently pretty regular around here:

1. D E S I G N E R  P R O F I L E S - I love to find hidden gems, designers you may not have come across in other sources, and show you their fabulous work to inspire you! This is one of my favorite features on this blog.

2. H O U S E  T O U R S - I love to post any home that blows my socks off, hoping that it will blow yours off too of course ;) This also ends up meaning my blog is a bit of an extension of my Pinboards, a real archive of my favorite places & spaces.

3. F A S H I O N  I N S P I R A T I O N - Let's be honest, this is mainly a décor blog, but most of us that are interested in all-things-visually-pleasing are usually interested in personal style. I'm by no means an expert of any sort, but I love to share with you what I see trending each season.

4. A R T I S T  P O R T F O L I O - This feature is a bit newer, but I'm excited to bring you a bit more from the art world, after all - a home doesn't have a soul without artwork!! I'm a sucker for realism, as you can tell from these first couple of entries:

So what are your thoughts? Any of these you would like to see more often, or perhaps less often? Anything else you would like to see added? I would absolutely love your feedback! Any if you find anything more or less easy to maneuver around the blog, I'd love to hear that too, thank you in advance!

And last but not least, I'd love to give a shout out to the fabulously talented Brittany Douglas of Gallery No. Eight. She did all the hard work of getting this up and running for me; thank you Britt!

She's got a fantastic portfolio, blog, and instagram account - if you on the market for a blog makeover be sure to check her out and you can thank me later!

Designer Profile | LMC Interiors

And just like that, in the blink of an eye, we are almost at the weekend once again! Happy dance :)

Today I've got a fabulous portfolio to share with you;  Lisa McGough, a Houston-based interior decorator, has luxurious design down pat. Her blog is appropriately named Stroke of Luxe, and her instagram account is full of visual goodies.

Simply divine! I love her use of a very neutral palette with the perfect touches of pattern & texture. To see more from Lisa, visit her portfolio here.

Designer Profile | Patrick Mele

I fell for the designs of Patrick Mele, featured on Domaine Home. He's got a young tradition design sense, with a dash of spunk!


I love each of these spaces. And that ginger jar vignette in the photo just above has me wanting to go shopping to add to my own collection! To see more from his portfolio, visit Patrick's website here.

15 Inspirational Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Fellow Canadians, are you ready for the Thanksgiving long weekend? I am so excited for all the yummy food, quality time with family & friends, and sitting down to watch 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,' of course ;)

I've gathered up my favorite images of Thanksgiving Tablescapes in hopes that they inspire you as you prepare!

I love the idea of an abundance of foliage, or even a garland draping the sides of the table:
How about all blue & white? Such a classic look!
Gold flatware takes a table setting to the next level (still in love with this set from West Elm):
I adore the idea of painting pumpkins:
And lastly, using pumpkins as a flower vase, a creative and beautiful idea for a floral centrepiece! I'm going to have to try this one:
Happy Thanksgiving weekend Canada!
