style at home - trends report!

hey everyone!  exciting news for me:  i'm going to be one of "style at home's" guest bloggers!  woo hoo!  style at home is a canadian based decor magazine, that' i've been reading for years!  it's great for us canadians b/c it uses products, furniture, and accessories that are actually available here!

they also have a great website, as well, as having a fabulous daily blog, from various bloggers!
thought i'd share a few trends according to style at home!

paint colors:

Go for taupe
Grey's friendlier cousin, taupe works well with warmer woods and is a great choice for open-concept spaces, where you need a single wall colour that works with everything. From left to right: 1 Beauti-Tone Angora SD021, Home Hardware. 2 Sarah Richardson Shoreline SR43, Para Paints. 3 Burnished Clay UL260-12, Behr. 4 Fog Mist OC-31, Benjamin Moore. 5 Elephant’s Breath 229,Farrow & Ball. 6 Valspar Oatlands Subtle Taupe 6005-1B, Lowe’s


(i have to say i do love the trend of wood.....so natural and organic and warm....can be used in so many different interiors/styles.....and how cool is the watch???!!)

modern global:

you certainly don't have to go switch out your entire house to keep up with things....but i do love seeing what's trending out there!  that's why i like to keep my home fairly neutral with the big items....furniture, majority of wall colors...etc...then just insert a little punchiness of a trend in a decorative item to keep your room looking up to date and fresh!


  1. Such exciting news! congrats! I love SAT.

  2. Wow Natalie! Congratulations! I think you found your calling when you started your blog. = )
