High/Low

One of my favourite features of Style at Home magazine is the High/Low section. It's a feature that has grown with me over the many years I've been a reader. When I was in university it was all aspirational design, then in our first few apartments we would pick exclusively from the low. Now I mix in a few high-end pieces every now and then, just to give things that little extra touch.

I love this feature they did on decorating a modern nursery. What they don't get into is what pieces are worth the splurge and which are not. In my mind, the Sparrow crib is beautiful, but not that much more than the Gulliver crib little Milo sleeps in. We felt that the mattress and a good mattress pad were well worth it, while an expensive bedding set was not, since bumper pads are a big no-no in Canada. Someone's going to catch on to that and start selling the quilts individually, right? Especially since Dwellstudio is led by a Canadian woman?
