Stylish stationery, free as a bird, Melo & Co. Melanie Louise Kazimierczy, print, art print, black and white, brush lettering, home decor

The lost art of writing a letter or sending someone a card seems to slowly be making a comeback. Perhaps it’s because we are saturated by our constant communication via screens and devices or maybe we are simply craving a more traditional (and real) way to connect with others. Whatever the reason, it’s a positive […]

I realize that I’m not reinventing the wheel by focusing on neutrals for fall but considering that a smart fashion philosophy is to invest in good basics, chic neutral outerwear was a must to post this season.

It was about 7 years ago that I first developed a passion for velvet in the home. I was decorating my new condo and it seemed like every picture I gathered for inspiration featured velvet sofas, chairs or headboards. I ended up purchasing the Byrd sofa from EQ3 in Slate and it was a wise […]

The blazer used to equal Wall Street and Dynasty-esque shoulder pads but today it’s the ultimate must have for any chic woman. Wearing a blazer doesn’t mean being stuffy or looking “corporate”. In fact, it’s probably the most versatile piece you can own as the swoon worthy photos below demonstrate. There are certain women that […]

From fashion to home decor, soft pink has been popping up all over the place during the past few seasons and this soothing hue seems here to stay for a while from what we can see. Pink works so well right now probably in part thanks to the monochrome trend in interior design and personal […]

Ever since having my bag stolen in Barcelona last November, I had been walking around with the saddest looking wallet (a tiny old thing I’d been using for my international currency). Luckily, Herschel Supply came to the rescue earlier this summer with their stylish yet understated Avenue wallet and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited […]

Je sais que je peux toujours compter sur Simons pour dénicher des pyjamas ou sous-vêtements ultra mignons pour un prix abordable.
