PlaidFox

As a blogger, a lot of the sponsorship and collaboration opportunities that come my way are geared more toward my American readers.  I have a certain fondness for America because I grew up - and have recently returned to - a border town, just minutes from Minnesota.  I have logged many hours stateside and the majority of my readers are actually American!  Love you guys!  But I'm also super proud of being a Canadian and am always especially thrilled when I can work with a brand or company that is uniquely ours.


I'm really excited to introduce PlaidFox, a chic Canadian company comprised of wholesale designers, buyers, and salespeople dedicated to bringing Canadians designer home furnishings - always at a price lower than the MSRP.  But this isn't just a simple online shop!  PlaidFox is committed to helping you get the most out of your space.  They don't just want to sell you something pretty, they want to help you find your look and help you love your home.  I recently took a tour around their newly launched website, starting with their Style Test.  


Normally I hate quizzes (three decades of education will do that to a person), but this one was chalk full of gorgeous spaces and felt more like my Pinterest boards were having a conversation with me.


Unsurprisingly, the PlaidFox Style Test was spot on: Mid-Century Modern.  My secondary style?  Coastal!  If you're curious, take the quiz yourself and let me know your style.  I'm really curious to see how many of my readers will have the same style as me...

Once you know your style, you can exclusively shop that look, which is an easy way to sift through all of the beautifully curated items to narrow in on the pieces that will complete your space or define your style.  Here's a sample of a few of the items recommended for me:

Black Tweed Teddy Bear Chair & Ottoman:


Colorful Scale Pattern Pillow (down fill):


Angelholm Walnut Veneer Table:


One of each, please.  You can also search by product, if your style is too eclectic to capture or you're on the hunt for the perfect dining chair and can't be distracted by dinosaurs and cog mirrors (I'm seriously pining for that mirror, and trying to work it into my bathroom plans because Hubby is equally smitten).

Not in the mood to shop? 


Then check out The Den, where you can explore inspiring spaces and find sweet DIY projects like this (you'd-never-guess-it-was) potato stamped pillow:


Take a peek at PlaidFox, whose style I would describe as quirky, Canadian cool.  The website is beautiful, and definitely worth a peruse whether you're in a shopping mood or not.  They're just getting started over there too, so expect more great finds and exclusive designs.  American friends, don't worry, PlaidFox ships to you.

 
This post was sponsored by PlaidFox but all opinions, editorial decisions, and commentary are my own.  I actually went a little nutty pinning things from the shop to my Pinterest boards and I started following them on Instagram - neither of which were requested for this post.  I'm just genuinely excited about some of their products and can't wait to see this online shop take shape.  Full disclosure: there's a chance that 2% of my appreciation for PlaidFox stems from my love of foxes (exhibits A and B).  Their logo is so adorable!!

    1. Ooo, French Country and Coastal! Relaxed chic? Very nice. The style tests seems 2 for 2, then. It's funny because some of the options I was offered were spaces I'd previously pinned.

  2. The results won't load for me! Must be because I'm American. (Just kidding). My choices led me down a pretty global-boho-mcm path, which I am super happy with. Also confirms my need to get some more boho stuff for my super boring bedroom.
    I love the cute fox logo too!

    1. Hmmm, I'm going to have to go through and see what Eclectic and French Country look like. My curiosity is piqued. It's fun to hear that the quiz was accurate!

  6. Mine are Coastal and Traditional. How fun! Thanks for sharing the Canadian stuff, it's nice to follow a Canadian blogger because lots of things available in the states aren't available here. Or at least out in BC!

    1. What a cool mix!! I'm always thrilled to find cool Canadian shops and brands. I'll buy USA because that's close enough, lol, but I do feel these certain tickle of pride when a shop is all ours.

    1. Great mix!! I am guessing a lot of jewel tones popped up for you? That is the think about the quiz: I started to drool over the pics for me too! Especially the walnut table...

    1. You are fancy! I can totally see "global" for you.

  9. Traditional main with coastal secondary. I never thought of my style as traditional because I generally don't like fussy, cluttered rooms with heavy window treatments. ;) But I thought about it and realized that all the furniture styles I like are traditional. So, traditional furniture with coastal styling is pretty accurate after all.

    1. That's a great style mix: uncluttered classics. This quiz is scary accurate so far... Thanks for sharing your results! I'm having a lot of fun hearing what everyone's style mix is (and how right/wrong the result is).
