Weathered, white washed, soft, Victorian, floral, airy and romantic, are all good ways to describe the look and feel of the shabby chic style. Below are some items that can help you achieve this look and feel~ sold at Anthropologie

When I saw we (Torontonians) were getting a CB2 I was pumped. Years back I was gifted birch stacking boxes from the New York Store an since then I’m always looking on the website to see what they have, hoping they will expand into Canada. I got my wish! Their new store is located on Queen Street West and Bathurst. Two full floors of furniture and other finds.
For those of you not familiar with the brand/store I would say their target market is young adults, but the pieces they sell would appeal to anyone with an urban style sense (or an urban square footage). They have larger furniture items like beds, tables, sofas and wall units to smaller items like art, vases, plates and cutlery. As far as price point goes I would say it could be along the lines of EQ3.
What I loved about their current stock is the bold pops of colour, textured fabrics and mix of concrete(like) and wood finishes.

A snippet of a few things love and whimsy…. wishing everyone a happy valentines day.
Candles are great way to introduce some ambient light, set the mood or infuse a fresh sent into a space. They also make a great gift for a housewarming party or a thank you present. Candle bases range from soy to bees wax to coconut… and more.
My personal favorites based on scent and look 1) Diptyque Paris’s Fig tree scent 2) Anthropologie Voluspa cut glass jar in scent Huckle berry (hint, hint g!)
The above candles can be found at Diptyque Paris (online), Anthropolgie (I would check out the entire candle collection because it is awesome!), West Elm, Chapters, Pottery Barn, and Etsy (Orange County candles)
This post was inspired by my sister in law’s new in-home hair salon and her beautiful set-up.Way to go Sil!
** Chapters is having a sale on some of their candles right now.
