Interior Design: Where to shop for unique home decor items

People are often asking me where to shop to find interesting unique items for the home. While of course there are many local stores to check out I wanted to share one of my favourite places, which thanks to the internet is accessible to us all.

The store is called Stilleben and they sell a unique range of beautifully designed ceramics, accessories, textiles, jewelry and graphic prints by Danish and international designers. They carry lines from top designers such as: Cecilia Forsberg, Julie Bonde, Society, Luckyboysunday, Christiane Perrochon, George Jensen, MUD, Cecilie Manz, Inge Vincent, Aymara, Kæhler, Helena Rohner, Yvonne Koné, Made a Mano, Tina Ratzer, Berit Mogensen Lopez, Playtype, Gubi, Scosha, ATWTP, Muuto.  Check out more about the owners and available items here.

I’ve pulled together some of my current obsessions below. 1/2/ 3/ 4 /5 / 6/ 7  (I’m very close to pulling trigger on #7, if only it were my birthday….)

Gift guide: For the hostess

The holiday season is here!

This time of year is always busy for us because aside from holiday parties and dinners about 1/3 of our friends and family also celebrate their birthdays in this month!

Needless to say I’m always on the hunt for creative gift ideas. This post is for the hostess in your life. Most of my friends and family love to entertain but I have a few who LIVE for this time of year! Hopefully something here works for you too!

Moody dark navy blues

Blue is a stunning colour for the home and has become my go to in resent months. The key word here being it is an actual colour. For many years now people have been drawn to grays and various shades of white in design (my self included). While they look great, colour can also look amazing and be a wonderful additional to the home. There are several darker blues out there that can add a moody and dramatic touch while still remaining a neutral.

I rounded up a few I thought worked beautifully.
