Margot Austin is the senior design editor at Style at Home, my new favorite magazine from, you guessed it, north of the border Canada.
Not sure how I stumbled upon her work but I'm sure glad I did!! All of these images make me want to run home and completely redo my apartment with all these soothing neutral color palettes.
Notice the silhouettes above this tray table...I love that they took a traditional idea and flipped it upside down by doing the whole body and not just the face profile.
Getting ready for work every morning would be much more pleasant with a space like this to do my make-up...or as I call it "putting on my face"
Love the seagrass on this console table, the glass top makes it a little more durable too. Don't forget that shegreen tray- the added texture in the same color as the seagrass makes it very pretty to look at
Such a great idea for those small apartments- the lack of legs give you a pretty table without taking up much space- love it
This kitchen island is lovely, I love the colors in this kitchen and especially that light, swoon!

I love everything in this room but paired with the little frenchie napping on the settee it just sends it right into the category of perfection to me
mini tiles= yummy
I need to find little topiaries like these. They add life and color to an already pretty mantle.
another dog and stacked pewter lids as art...love it.
Such a pretty desk space...my favorite thing here is the chair with the nice cover- what a great way to turn an ugly black/gray office chair into something that is much easier on the eyes
Shower head, light fixture, shower curtain, counter top, wall color- it is all divine
Notice the rope railing- its the little details that make an uninteresting staircase fun. Oh and the wine fridge...a must have for all those party people
The yellow side table is the perfect punch in the face this room needed :)
The Canadian design scene has really peeked my attention...they seem to have my favorite magazines and websites, all with really great ideas. What do you think?
