As I decorate my apartment — piece by piece, find by find — I am always on the prowl for interesting items that will surprise and delight my future house guests. Recently I have been attracted to illuminated items, fun things that glow, things like:

Illumined pots, which I discovered at Spencer Interiors

Lighted mirrors! Imagine… no more bad lighting when applying make up. In the cunning words of the big bad wolf, these mirrors will allow “to see you better my dear”…

The Ti.Galet, a glowing sculptural seat designed by Gilles Rivière. There is something incredibly organic and futuristic about it. It seems equally inspired by Henry Moore and Jean Arp, as Dan Flavin. It also makes me think of the aesthetic of the new Tron film — florescent glow surrounded by smooth darkness. This piece is thought provoking, and is sure to start conversations, which is a rare quality in a seat.

Last but not least, d°light Bubbles, which I am currently obsessing over and trying to figure out where I could possibly place them. Playful, metamorphosing, silicone LED light bubbles that you can shape as you wish!

Until next time,

One of my guilty pleasures is shopping online. It could be trying to find that perfect vintage piece of furniture on Craig’s List, browsing the online version of In Style or navigating my way through multiple fashion blogs. I’d describe my personal style as classic trendy. I tend to go for clothing choices that last the test of time, but add some flare with a few season specific pieces.


I’ve recently discovered an amazing website that I want to share with you: Guilt Group. This site is invitation only, but I did not have any trouble signing up without one. It took them about a day to approve me. Guilt Group gives you roughly 70% off of luxury men’s and women’s fashion brands, as well as home decor. Another favourite feature is the JetSetter portion, where you can get incredible deals on luxury hotels and vacations. Style, comfort and savings, sign me up!

The only downer is that you currently need a credit card with a US address to purchase something, which I painfully discovered when attempting to purchase some Happy Socks for my partner. We can only hope that they will soon smarten up and make it available to Canadians as well… but until then, do be aware of it’s existence, as it an exciting new way to shop!
