Today, I get to announce the winner! But before I do, let’s¬†do a bit of a review, shall we?

Glenn Dixon’s designs for Korhani Home are inspired by nature, and this white marble carpet is an example of nature at its best. Just look at how marble is harvested (via Jennifer). Here’s the marble rug (the Stonefield) in place at Art Toronto’s VIP Lounge last week:

Kristen thought that Caviar20’s¬†Hans Wegner Cigar Chair and the Harold Town “Toy Horse #54” 1978 print would pair nicely with¬†the rug. I think it’s pretty cool that the print is labelled #54 and Kristen’s entry number was 54. Wild!

Congratulations, Kristen! Look for an email in your inbox soon!

Thanks to Caviar20, Korhani Home, and Glenn Dixon Home by Korhani Home. Thanks especially to Troy and Andrea.

Giveaway: Caviar20 + Glenn Dixon Home by KORHANI Home

Well, have I got a treat for you this Monday morning! I’ve teamed up with¬†Caviar20 and Korhani to giveaway a beautiful area rug designed by Canadian design star¬†Glenn Dixon. Excited? So am I! Happy Monday, dear readers!

If you had a chance to stop by Art Toronto this weekend, you may have noticed Dixon’s¬†Korhani rugs in¬†the VIP Lounge designed by Troy Seidman of Caviar20. If not, here’s a quick peek:

Quite a piece of art, isn’t it? The 8×12 rug would look equally interesting in a bedroom, living room, or dining room. Don’t you agree? Dixon’s Korhani rugs will officially¬†launch in 2015.

Since I worked with Troy from Caviar20 to arrange this post, I just had to think about what pieces I would pick from Caviar20 to pair with the rug. Here are my top choices:

Winner: Panasonic Giveaway

Thanks to those who entered and commented on last month’s Panasonic feature & giveaway. I am happy to announce that Boba is the lucky winner of the stainless steel microwave. Have a look at her old-world + modern appliances kitchen design. I love that the induction cooktop and modern wall oven look perfectly at home among the oriental rug, rustic wood table, and beautiful blue fabrics. I also love the inclusion of a classic white KitchenAid stand mixer and white Danby (I think) pots. Let us know how you love your new microwave, Boba!

Many thanks to Panasonic for sponsoring this giveaway and to Candace B. for her coordination.

Giveaway: #PanasonicStyle

Hi all. Was the weekend a good one? Did you cook up a storm? How do you feel about getting creative this Monday morning? Good. I’m glad. Have I got a contest for you!

PanasonicStyle

I wrote about Panasonic’s induction products last week and this week I’m challenging you (it’s an easy challenge, I swear) to create your own Panasonic kitchen style inspiration board using the¬†Panasonic induction cooktop and convection oven.

Here’s my inspiration board to serve an example:

White-Cabana-Panasonic-Style

White Cabana’s #PanasonicStyle

My inspiration board includes items that are smooth, sleek, and highly functional – like the Panasonic appliances, the Kaiser Idell light, and the Bialetti coffee maker. I’m also inspired by natural sunshine, so this board includes gorgeous large windows. The fresh flowers promise the arrival of springtime and growth. The fresh squid ink pasta and black and white art show the beauty that comes from making things by hand.

But enough about my inspiration…it’s your turn!

What would you include in your #PanasonicStyle kitchen inspiration board? Go ahead, create one. When you’re done with your board, email it to me along with your contact info and I’ll add it to the #PanasonicStyle Pinterest board. That’s all you have to do to enter the contest!

So, you probably want to know what’s up for grabs, right? This is your chance to win…

NN-GD693S(CPH)_Front_sp1219_(Final)

A Panasonic Mid-Size Genius Inverter Microwave! The winner will receive the microwave as well as the trim kit (so that you can mount the microwave above the stove/over the counter). This prize is a biggie – valued at $470! Um, yeah. I told you it was going to be worth your pinning efforts!¬†Who doesn’t want a new microwave, right?

To recap:

1. Create an inspiration board (i.e., collage) featuring the Panasonic induction cooktop or convection oven.

2. Email me your board – whitecabana [at] gmail [dot] com

3. The contest deadline is¬†Friday February 21st, 2014¬†and it’s open to Canadian residents (over the age of 18, excluding Quebec).

Your popcorn kernels will thank you for entering and so will I!

Many thanks to Panasonic for sponsoring this giveaway and related posts.

Event: Octaspring + Pinterest Contest

You may remember that last week I announced Octaspring’s current contest. Use Pinterest to create an #OctaspringDream bedroom board and post the link on Facebook…that’s all it takes to enter! The prize is a great one…a set of Octaspring pillows plus a $250 gift card to the Home Depot. Can I mention again that I am one of the judges of the contest? Am I excited? Of course I am. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what your must-haves are in your dream bedroom!

While I cannot enter the contest, I did want to create a dream board. It’s been a handy board, actually, considering the fact that I’m currently rearranging a lot in my home and the master bedroom still needs some attention. Here’s a sneak peek at my #OctaspringDream bedroom Pinterest board:

WhiteCabana_OctaspringDreamBedroom

Have a full look at it here.

As you’ll notice, some of my bedroom must-haves are: art, windows, sunlight, excellent linens, texture, cool lighting, beautiful closet, pretty pyjama sets, flowers, an assortment of pillows (I’m currently sleeping on the Octaspring Evolution – I’ll post a review soon!), and a bed that is made (I cannot leave the house with a messy bed. How about you?).

The #OctaspringDream bedroom contest ends November 18th Friday December 13th so get a-pinning!
