Rove Concepts

Those of you that follow me on Instagram may already know (because it’s all I talk about lately) that I’m moving to a new, bigger and brighter house next week which means only one thing in my universe: endless furniture shopping. I’ve spent so much time online looking for the “perfect” everything, trying to find the best version of an interior concept I have in my mind for the best possible price. Vintage is usually a good option but for some things (especially big furniture) you just want to have something brand new – with a vintage look – and that’s when I dove into the world of Rove Concepts, an exceptional Canadian destination where one can find handcrafted impeccable mid-century and modern-European furniture and home accents. They are selling designs you either can’t find anywhere else or for prices that are unbeatable. Seriously, I heard about them before but my world has changed after I discovered what they’ve been all about. With their 3 exclusive brand collections (RoveClassics where they recreate iconic pieces [my …

Cane Back’s Back (Alright!)

I love how everything I’ve seen in doctors’ offices when I was growing up is coming back one by one; first the monstera plants and now the Cesca chair (Cesca is the name of the chair with a cane back and a cane seat with a metal frame, named after its founder Marcel Breuer Cesca, which is sometimes also referred to as the Breuer chair) but it’s not just the Cesca chair that’s having it’s moment in the sun right now, it’s ALL cane back chairs. With or without arms, wood or metal frames, brown or black edges – it simply doesn’t matter. And because they’re so popular right now it’s extremely hard to find one for a reasonable price however I managed to spot one in one of the second hand furniture depots in Montreal and scored one for $10 (yes, that’s $10, I’m not missing a zero there). May the force be with you during your search!

Sleep On A Pallet

Despite how I may look from the outside (or totally in accordance with it, I have no idea how other people see me, anyways) I always choose comfort over appearance. I may make it look like otherwise but it’s totally not the case. I only wear sneakers or super comfortable flats even though my closet is flooded with shoes (and not just heels, I’m not wearing anything that slightly bruises my feet), dresses & skirts or anything that doesn’t have a bottom support is basically a torture machine for me, I only carry crossbody bags that I can “handle” and when it comes to my home, I only buy beds & sofas that are actually comfortable and good for my health rather than anything cool looking. Which is exactly why my boring IKEA mattress has been sitting on an even more boring (and non-functional) black wooden frame for years even though I love the image of bohemian floor beds. There is absolutely no way in hell I’m sleeping on a floor, sorry. BUT, I just …

Box O’ Light

Welcome to this week’s edition of hipster baits that I’d very much like to fall for, or have already fallen for, because it looks so damn good in photos: the lightbox. Also referred to as the cinema light box or bxxlght, this tiny little rectangle is like twitter for your home: write the most pretentious, inspiring or bad ass quote you can think of with 25 characters or less, place it somewhere unorthodox and pretend you’re the coolest gal in town. Though I’m pretty sure – us being us – at our house it will be the scoreboard for the most important game of the night before and maybe birthday celebrations.

In Between Floors

First Instagram, then Pinterest; this interior trend is slowly conquering and sweeping all my feeds off all at once: the art of floor transitioning. Whether it be between tiles and wooden floors or simply a change of hardwood pattern, an irregular transition or separated with a border or line, this genius interior trick is a sure-fire way to attract all the attention of hipster Instagrammers around the world. Please do let me know first though, as I’m the uncrowned queen of mainstream IG shots I’d love to be one of the first ones to take a #ihavethisthingwithfloors.
