For now, I’m THRILLED to tell you that I, along some other blogging/decorating friends, am honoured to be a part taking part in Polyvore’s Project Decorate
And what’s this all about you ask?
Basically, it’s a super duper exciting initiative from the brilliant peeps over at Polyvore, created to help promote their new ‘home’ application.
For my part, I was asked to do a few funboat things.
First, I had to define my style with a little moodboard action.
Here’s what I came up with for that…
Next, I was to dream up my own little contest.
Step one…think of a theme.
For that, I put together something that definitely reflects my own personal style and the kind of aesthetic I’m most drawn to…
Called ‘wild rose’ it’s all about femininity mixed with a little spunk…edgy glamour as it were.
Step Two…pull together a collection of 20-30 items that reflect the theme.
Step three…decide on a store that works with what I’m doing and offer up a $500 gift card to said shop…this one was easy peasy…you all know my love for/girl worship of…
And finally, share the contest across the interwebs.
Now that all is in place, the fun can officially begin.
So…if you like my ‘style bag’…
…and want to win $500 to spend at Kelly Wearstler…
…and put together your own ‘Edgy Glamour’ board using Polyvore’s amazingly easy/fun/addictive home app.
If you need some inspiration/ideas on what to create , just look at the entries already in…
…so fun to see how differently each person interprets the theme:)
My ‘edgy glamour’/ #projectdecorate contest…
…will run for 5 days only and then 2 lucky ducky winners will be selected.
A huge, huge thanks to Polyvore
and the #projectdecorate team for asking me to take part…so honoured/excited.
Good luck my friends and enter away…can’t wait to see what you all come up with!!!!

Just under the wire, I am posting my entry to the Design Refuge October Contest. Here is my ‘design style’ in a nutshell, or in 3 pictures as the case may be:)
First, my living room- nothing defines my personal style more than my own home- it is my place of bliss.
Next, the first room in a magazine that I truly fell in love with; it encapsulates everything I love about decor. The room is energetic but restrained, modern but lived in. And on a purely superficial level, the artwork and yellow chairs make my heart sing.
And finally, this space…modern, vintage, new, reused, bold, subtle, white, colourful- all of it gorgeous and exactly how I define my style.
