The Weekender: New Year

Happy new year! As you may have noticed, I took a little time off over the holidays—to disconnect and get the creative juices flowing again. It was nice to be in Florida for two full weeks away from emails and responsibilities. I got back to snowy temperatures in NYC but I have to say I like it—New York winters are definitely less harsh than in Montreal (so far)—and we’ve had a couple of beautiful sunny white days. It seems that nesting (and hygge) is the trending word for 2017—with no exception, I’m fully embracing spending time at home, making it as cozy and comfortable as possible, and getting back into cooking. Other resolutions for 2017: find a better work-life balance, get back into playing tennis, and be on time! What’s yours?

Gab Loves: Red, Red Wine

I don’t know if it’s the impending holidays, the cold weather, or my new burgundy manicure, but I’m loving the look of deep dark reds these days, especially when paired with light and dark grays, shades of pink, and warm wood tones. Something about this color palette feels very cozy like you’d just want to curl up by a fireplace and drink a bottle of red—which is exactly what I plan on doing as soon as Friday hits.
