Gab Loves: Light Neutral Tones

Gab Loves: 17.09.14 — Light Neutral Tones on @SavvyHome

If I was ever in a blogging rut prior to NYFW (I was) — it cured me. So much inspiration. I decided that despite Labor Day being long gone, I’m going to stick to my love for light neutral tones and shades of blue, à la Rosie Assoulin. I also decided it was time to get a boyfriend just so I can buy this sweater for someone. Just kidding (not kidding). In all seriousness—don’t you ever wish you could shop the men’s department for yourself?

Domino Magazine’s Spring Issue has been open to page 77 on my desk for a few weeks now—serving as inspiration for a new client project I’m working on in this beautiful Ottawa house. This airy art-filled house owned by Leanne Citrone and her husband, is a testament to the science of decorating a house around an art collection, and not the other way around. The couple started collecting art slowly—starting with a beach scene by Massimo Vitali—and seeked the help of designer Lauren Soloff to bring their collection together in a coherent manner.

The rooms were kept neutral: with lost of natural colors and textures: ivory linen, jute, tan leather, sheepskin, organic wood… This allowed the art to truly stand out. Each piece in the house was chosen carefully and as such, the design evolved organically over a period of two years. There is no better way to decorate a home. Read the story on Domino.

The Serena & Lily Fall Collection

Serena & Lily Fall Collection — on @SavvyHome

New Fall collections are hitting stores left, right and center, making the this sudden change in weather a little less frustrating. The Serena & Lily Fall Collection is giving me the urge to re-decorate for the colder months. Chunky braided rugs and quilted blankets are perfect for layering, while their new killer lighting collection provides much needed warmth. The collection festures some of my most beloved shades—ivory, chambray and camel—proving that you don’t need to turn to rich dark colors when decorating for the Fall and Winter months. My favorite pieces? The new bigger-sized blake raffia coffee table and the carson chair revisited as a bench. What are yours?

And the Bloglovin Blogger of the Year Award goes to... — Worthy Links on @SavvyHome

And the Bloglovin blogger of the year award goes to… No it’s not me (Ha..) it’s Kristina Bazan. I totally get it. The photography, the design— everything is just spot on. I’m a new fan. NYFW came and went this week. Even though I wasn’t part of the action this year, I soaked up all the inspiration.

So what’s been up to this week: last week I vowed to get back into running and hire an intern. Done and done. I ran 3-4 miles every single day — that’s 21 miles and counting in case you’re wondering. I’m also in the process of hiring a wonderful intern that will hopefully take a load off my shoulders AND I hired a new rockstar developer. Not bad for tackling my September to-do list, right? Now all I have left to do is to play a few more rounds of golf (it’s happening this afternoon if the rain holds off) and plan my Paris trip. I’m leaving in a week! Tell me— where should I walk, eat, drink and shop in the city of lights?
