MONTRÉAL TRAVEL GUIDE!

montréal travel guide | designlovefest

montreal during the holiday season was the perfect time to visit! it was my first time in the city and i really loved it, not too expensive, kind people, good food and lots to do. i was invited by accorhotels who own a lot of properties across the world. as part of their le club loyalty program, they created the seeker project, a cool interactive quiz that anyone can take where you answer some questions, they show you some pictures and you pick what you’re drawn to and they also take into account your heart rate (which is wild!)  and at the end they tell you the places, based on your answers, that would be the best fit for your next vacation. it can be anything from city to beach to mountains. it’s a fun way to narrow down what you’re really digging for your next trip and even if you’re not planning a trip it’s a really well designed quiz that’s interesting to see. one of the places was the fairmont queen elizabeth in montreal which is where we ended up!

they gave us a really pretty suite that felt really festive and even had a tree in it.  but they have a range of prices for their rooms, i checked base rates while we were there and they start at $150/per night. we stayed on the gold floor which had a free happy hour every evening and a breakfast included as well. the hotel really did offer so much which is nice in a city where the weather can be unpredictable and you might not want to stay indoors.

we started the night with a fancy cocktail (or two) at our hotel bar, nacarat. the bartenders were so into it and made the experience really fun. montréal actually has tons of cool cocktail bars, i will show you some of our faves in this post. this one was a great one.

WEEKEND AT HOME / 69

shelf styling ideas | designlovefest

shelves can be a huge eyesore sometimes. we tend to stuff in books until they’re overflowing, and never actually organize them. i wanted to share some shelf styling ideas so you can store your favorite books and keep your shelf pretty at the same time! here are a few tips. #1: have a color palette for the shelf. i’m kind of obsessed the all-white example below, but you can add in a few colors too, just keep them consistent. tip #2: mix things up for variation and shape. don’t just include books, add in some art, plants, and fun accessories. #3: play around! style a few books horizontally, then a few vertically. fill in some spaces with accessories and spread everything out so it doesn’t clash or fight against one another. happy shelf styling! erika

TOP 7 / VASES

You know how much we love flowers around here. Flowers are the best kept secret to enhance any room in your house or office space. Stylists use fresh flowers all the time. On the other hand, finding cool vases is not that easy. I need to grow my collection but I don’t want to splurge too much. I’ve found some interesting options around the web and I thought I would share my favorites. –stephanie
