The Best Blogs: Love This, Love That

Home stylist by day, blogger by night, the talented Christopher Reyes finds style wherever he goes. His site, Love This, Love That, is a carefully curated collection of design eye candy culled from a variety of sources—a recent shopping trip, his new loft or even dinner at Toronto's Keg Mansion.

So what tops this tastemaker's list of loves? These are a few of his favourite things:

"Designer Kelly Wearstler's ability to see beauty in atypical objects is truly inspiring; you'll never see those things the same way again!

Fave Decor Magazine: Elle Decor

"Month after month, its spaces exhibit a regal, curated, yet lived-in feel. There is always an easy-to-reach and ready-to-read stack in my home!"

Fave Housewares Store: Chair Table Lamp

"A cross between an antique shop and interior design boutique, Chair Table Lamp's easy blog-style shopping experience is one of a kind and part of my daily online ritual."

Fave Piece of Furniture: Our Antique Secretary Desk

"A nod to the past that's also practical and functional, it displays our china and hides our pesky bills. The fold-out desk is a smart feature for small spaces."

Fave Artist: Piet Mondrian

"The black-and-white abstract grid and smart, sudden pops of primary colours in his pieces will adorn your walls with graphic goodness. The contrast of his paintings against a darker wall is especially delicious!"

Fave Coffee Table Book: Tom Ford by Tom Ford

"A hefty collection of illustrations and photography of Ford's work and career. Its clean typography, colour palette and beautiful spine anchor and add instant credibility to your coffee tablescape."

Fave Article of Clothing: White Oxford Shirt

"Nothing is better than a clean, crisp white Oxford shirt. It's like a blank canvas; you can wear it alone for a more minimalist daytime look or dress it up with a tailored blazer and skinny tie for evening."

Fave Fashion-Cum-Housewares Designer: Diane von Furstenberg

"Her vibrant fashions translate into one-of-a-kind tabletop pieces that are sure to bring your style quotient up 10 notches."

Fave Fashion Designer: Coco Chanel

"The original couturier's designs were textural, sophisticated, yet glamorous. She achieved a level of casual elegance that will forever set a tone in fashion and interior design. Her legendary Paris apartment is something everyone should Google; it's stunning!"

Fave City to Visit: New York

"The heartbeat of the city is constant, and the culture is flourishing. Its many antique markets definitely keep you on your toes looking for the next great deal!"

Fave Hotel: The Standard, New York

"From the building's architecture to its iconic interior furnishings, bold prints and quirky details, this boutique hotel offers the quintessential modernist fix. I advise everyone to stay there for at least one night and experience it for themselves."
