Editor’s Picks – Summer 2018

Editor-in-Chief Marc Atiyolil shares some of his favorite products (as seen in Canadian Home Trends Magazine Kitchen & Bath 2018)

The combination of a matte white lacquer finish with rich black walnut details gives the Vanité a luxurious, contemporary look. I love that this bathroom vanity offers plenty of storage space with full extension, 6.5″ deep drawers and high performance Blum push-to-open slide mechanisms to allow for a trendy, handless design. If space allows, there is also a double sink version! – Dezign Market

Luxury Vinyl Tile is a great choice if you are looking for an affordable, durable flooring option. The Malibu collection from 4 Corners offers a variety of trendy colors. My favorite is this Belize color that looks fantastic in a light and bright, modern kitchen. This easy to install flooring option is very low maintenance and can withstand the wear and tear of a busy kitchen. – 4 Corners

Ready to meet your new favorite table? The Plurimo is an entirely new concept in extension tables. My favorite design aspect is that it uniquely expands in both width and length with hidden extensions and self-storing leaves. There is no need to take up room in your closet for your table leaves. I love that it’s available in five sizes and in a variety of lacquer, wood, and heat and stain resistant, sealed concrete finishes. – Resource Furniture

Editor’s Picks: Spring 2018

 Editor-in-chief Marc Atiyolil shares some of his favorite products. As seen in Canadian Home Trends Magazine February 2018.

I recently had a chance to view the flooring selections at Peerani’s Flooring and I fell in love with this hand-scraped Hickory engineered hardwood called Silver Minks from Twelve Oaks’ Antique Perspective collection. The hand-scraped details give this floor a vintage feel while the gray tones in the wood add a modern twist. This makes it a classic choice that will work for many different design styles. Plus, Silver Minks is designed for an easy Drop Lock floating installation! – Peerani’s Flooring, www.peeranisflooring.com

Solutions for small space living are always a popular topic and that’s why I love this concept from Lucvaa Kitchens. A glossy bank of built-in cabinetry fills a single wall for a modern looking display that takes up very little floor space. When not in use, the kitchen simply looks like a storage unit but the cabinet doors slide away into the unit to reveal a kitchen counter with cabinetry, workspace and a sink.   This is the perfect solution for a small home or condo with an open concept living space! – Lucvaa Kitchens, www.lucvaa.com

I had the opportunity to test out the new app from Rubinet. Rubinet provides high quality faucets and accessories that are completely customizable and now they have an app that lets you customize their products using your phone. Faucets are a great place to add an unexpected design detail like a gold accent or a pop of color. Now you can try out hundreds of combinations to find the perfect faucet and accessories for your bathroom! – Rubinet, www.rubinet.com

While taking in a recent design show, I came across a simple yet colorful booth and was introduced to Daintree’s Liquid Systems. Liquid Systems is a stand-alone system that is aesthetically pleasing, easy to install and highly customizable. This Canadian-made product is made-to-order so it can be customized specifically to your space requirements, creating an elegant, modern display for your finest beverages. This is a great choice for small spaces and condos where you want a modern look while maximizing the use of space. – Liquid Systems, www.daintreeindustries.com

 

I love this stunning piece as the top is made out of a Petrified Wood slab and it is finished with simple, modern metal pin legs. Each piece is unique and one of a kind. – Casamia Home, www.casamiahome.ca

Every fashion editor’s favourite Parisian brand has finally come to London

This address is too good to keep to yourself

Remember when we told you about the ultimate Parisian brand Sézane, and its chic boutique l’Appartement? Well it’s finally (finally!) come to London, after opening pop-up stores across France, and a permanent store in New York.

La Boutique, in the heart of Mayfair,  has a curated edit of the Parisian brand’s must-have pieces, like coats, shoes, sweaters and accessories. It also has lifestyle pieces that are the perfect Christmas gifts, like notebooks, heavenly candles and homeware.

You can also buy the brand’s fragrance, l’Eau Sézane, for the first time, as you can’t actually buy it on the site due to EU shipping regulations. And trust me, it’s totally worth it. I’ll be stocking up on it to gift all my friends at Christmas.

 

And if you can’t make it up to London, fret not, you can still shop the collection online at Sézane, and here are three great pieces I’m adding to my shopping basket now.

The Summer Makeup Launches Allure Editors Can’t Wait to Try

Lazy weekends at the beach. Barbecues in the backyard. An excuse to indulge on sugary, tropical drinks at brunch without being judged: There’s a lot to get pumped about for summer. For hard-core beauty fans, however, summer also means a new crop of bright and bronzy makeup launches (and even a few updates on our favorite staples). Our editors picked out the ones they’ll be adding to their makeup bags this season.

The Simple Beauty Resolutions Allure Editors Are Making This Year

Does anyone actually want to start their new year with daunting tasks, like learning a new language or forgoing gluten? Instead of overwhelming overhauls, our editors are planning simple beauty tweaks and little lifestyle improvements that are a snap to maintain—and are a hell of a lot more actionable than those grandiose-yet-vague mantras that also tend to crop up this time of year (looking at you, “live life to the fullest”). And besides, maybe we don’t want to stop replacing entire meals with cookies, OK?

Getting a group of people to agree unanimously on something isn’t easy. Case in point: the 2016 elections. But in the Allure offices, we freakishly all agree that there were a number of new products this year that changed the course of our lives forever.

Allure Editors’ Worst Hair-Removal Stories

Removing unwanted body hair isn’t exactly our idea of a good time. But when it comes to the whole “beauty is pain” thing, Allure editors have done it all for the sake of beach-ready limbs and Taylor Hill–like brows. Here, a few of our especially memorable hair-removal horror stories.

At my job interview here at allure.com, the editor straight-up asked if I was a beauty girl. Through the haze that shrouds all interview-related memories, I recall all-too-honestly confessing that I was generally too lazy to pull off masterful, salon-level blowouts or ten-step smoky eyes myself. But, I assured her, I was an absolute skin-care nutcase. (It was the first time I could seamlessly bring up my four years as a—top-selling, thank you very much!—sales associate at The Body Shop as a valid credential.) The college job embedded a serious respect for (and deep dependency on) vitamin C, shea butter, grape-seed oil, and other natural ingredients. During the past two years, my already-high skin-care standards have grown even loftier, and my beauty-product dance card has gone from full to overflowing. Here are its MVPs.

HuffPost Style Editors Team Up With The Style Line And Talk Fashion, Food And Festive Attire

The Style line is not your average fashion blog. What started as a humble street style Tumblr in 2011 when creator Rachel Schwartzmann was just a senior in high school, has become a full fledged website celebrating both style and substance.

“I see it now as an online lifestyle resource with an unfiltered view into the who rather than the what,” Schwartzmann told HuffPost. “We tell our stories through a style lens but hope to share fashion content in a people-first approach. I make sure to take a community-building approach to how and what we feature and that in turn has allowed us to meet interesting people from a myriad of industries across the globe.”

In other words, The Style Line’s mission is to tell the story of the person beyond just what they are wearing. Mission accomplished.

The site, whose name is a nod to the NYC transit system and inspired by the idea of movement and exploration, has profiled a slew of fashionable and creative global citizens including fashion designer Nanette Lepore, West Elm’s creative director Vanessa Holden, Reformation’s Brianna Lance and the team at Nasty Girl — just to name a few. And now you can add the HuffPost Style team to that awesome list.

Last week Schwartzmann visited us at The Huffington Post offices to get the scoop on our personal style, what makes us tick, our favorite things, and dressing up for the holiday season. The result is a super fun look into how we work, play and sometimes twerk our way through life.

Here’s a sneak peek, but make sure to head over to The Style Line and check out our oh-so-fabulous feature!

Plus-Size Woman Had Editors Photoshop Her Picture To Make Her ‘Beautiful’ — She Did Not Expect This

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Marie Southard Ospina, an associate fashion and beauty editor with Bustle, decided to put beauty in the hand of the beholder, asking photo editors from around the world to Photoshop her profile picture and make her “beautiful.” Ospina was inspired by journalists Esther Honig and Priscilla Yuki Wilson, both of whom conducted similar experiments earlier this year. While Honig focused on how culture and beauty pertain to women, Wilson examined how culture and beauty pertain to race; but Ospina, a 23-year-old, plus-size woman, focused on the cultural relationship between weight and beauty.

In her Bustle piece, Ospina writes:

Having grown up predominantly in the first world, I’m aware that in countries like the U.S. or the U.K. being fat is (although quite common) perceived as an inherently negative thing. Stereotypes include, but are not limited to: laziness, selfishness, stupidity, naiveté and even a lower socioeconomic class. But I’m also aware that the notion of “thin is the only beautiful” doesn’t permeate the entirety of the world.

Editors from 17 countries, of varying skill levels, were paid between $ 5 and $ 30 to “make me look beautiful, whilst keeping in mind the looks they see in the fashion/beauty mags of their countries.”

(Story continues below.)

The results from her experiment proved surprising. Though Ospina thought most editors would digitally alter her bone structure and weight to make her look thinner, only three out of the 21 did just that.

“I was extremely positive about the results in the sense that I felt they showed just how different we all, as individuals, define and perceive beauty,” she wrote in an email to The Huffington Post on Thursday. “The reality is that the ‘beautiful’ we’re often taught to aspire to is quite linear, and rooted in being thin. But that’s just one type of beauty. I don’t think the experiment served to show that all of a sudden we, as a species, fat shame any less. Or that all of a sudden we are perfectly accepting of diversity in size. But it did show that defining this six-letter word is nearly impossible. And that’s kind of as it should be. We should all be entitled to our perceptions and our attractions. I don’t ever expect everyone in the world to look a plus-size body and think, ‘My god, he/she is stunning.’ But I hope for a day when the fact that a lot of people do find that larger body attractive isn’t met with such surprise, shock and sometimes anger.”

She said the response she has received from her experiment has been overwhelmingly positive, and she believes that is because people are “tired of being told there is only one kind of beauty.”

“I want women to know that they don’t have to be thin to be beautiful or worthwhile or important or good,” she wrote to HuffPost.

“We need to remember that beauty exists in all forms, styles, shapes, sizes, colors,” she added. “We need to remember that the fact that beauty is actually undefinable is, in of itself, a beautiful thing.”
