Marketplace: Oh That Coco

I’m obviously not the first to recognize¬†Coco Chanel’s influence on the fashion world. Not only have her designs stood the test of time, but so have her words.

Furniture: Settees

The photos below show the versatility of the settee. The small dainty piece of furniture looks perfectly in place whether in the¬†hallway, bedroom, dining room, or porch. Have a look…

If you’re looking to make a purchase, you might want to¬†visit Black Rooster Decor,¬†Jayson Home, One Kings Lane,¬†Restoration Hardware, or¬†1st Dibs.¬†I’ve also seen some lovely options at Home Sense. If you really want to go for an authentic French settee, I’d recommend making the trip to Paris’ March√© aux Puces¬†to¬†view loads of settees there¬†(Why not¬†dream big?).

The Friday Five: Kitchens

I don’t know about you but I spend many hours staring at photos of kitchens for no real good reason. The kitchen in my apartment is white (phew) so it’s not like I need to paint cabinets or renovate. And my NYC and Toronto family members all have white kitchens so when I visit them I always feel happy to be in their kitchens (It’s not like I’m against visiting colorful homes, I swear). But, still, I just love seeing stylish kitchen design.

So, speaking of gorgeous white kitchens, shall we drool over some this weekend? Yes, I think so.

What are you cooking this weekend? Or, will you be painting cabinets white perhaps?

Movies: How to Steal a Million

Last night I watched the 1966 rom-com How to Steal a Million starring Audrey Hepburn (who isn’t a fan, right?) and Peter O’Toole. I knew it was going to be a good movie as soon as I saw Audrey Hepburn driving a sweet red sports car and wearing an all-white ensemble!


Have you seen this movie? What did you think?
