TRANSITIONAL SUMMER MEETS AUTUMN DECOR


Interior design lovers, I’m thrilled to welcome you back into our sun drenched Living Room for my first dedicated DWELL post of 2020 — in fact, it’s been almost a year since my last! So what exactly have I been up to around here? Well, to be completely transparent, all the brand partnerships I had lined up for our SPACE REFRESH series this year were postponed (some indefinitely) due to COVID. I had so many plans for our remaining rooms, along with updates to spaces you’ve already seen, but due to the current situation, they simply haven’t been possible. Instead, I’ve been focusing on making small tweaks and seasonal updates to already finished spaces so that we can fully enjoy them with all the extra time we’ve spent at home! I’m allowing things to come together naturally, ideas to ebb and flow organically and working away on our home when I feel inspired to do so — because if 2020 has taught me anything, it’s that life doesn’t always go according to plan. Lately I’ve been cozying things up for autumn, picking up a few new key pieces and restyling items we already own in new ways, so I thought it was about time I share our Transitional Summer Meets Autumn Decor with you here at JustineCelina, if you’re doing the same and looking for inspiration! 

This year we’ve opted to keep things lighter and brighter as we transition into a new season — and it feels like a perfect blend of summer and fall. It’s the magical time of year where we can enjoy the best of both summer and autumn out in nature, in our homes, on our plates and in our wardrobes — and I’m fully embracing it! Despite 2020’s challenges, we’ve experienced the warmest autumn I can remember — and I’ve definitely channeled that inspiration into our home this season. I love to experiment with juxtaposition in my personal style and in my home — I’m all about mixing high with low, old with new and modern with traditional. Each year, my inspiration hits an all time high as summer blends into autumn and I explore new ways to translate this seasonal shift into our inner city Calgary apartment! Fall decor doesn’t have to be expensive, overwhelming or impractical — and today I’ve rounded up all my best transitional decorating tips and favourite sources for affordable, quality pieces to refresh your space. If you’re a fellow apartment dweller, working with a small space (or a modest budget!), you’ve come to the right place — pour yourself a glass of crisp rosé and curl up on the sofa as I share our Transitional Summer Meets Autumn Decor

DIGITAL BLOOMS OCTOBER 2020 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPER


Good morning, flower friends! I’m thrilled to bring you October 2020’s Free Floral Wallpaper today — featuring an entirely local selection of flowers, wild grasses and foraged prairie foliage in celebration of harvest season. Last month you read all about our trip to Bowden SunMaze & Eagle Creek Farms where I handpicked the flowers you’ll see in my Autumn 2020 Digital Blooms here at JustineCelina — and I couldn’t be more excited to begin sharing them with you! My first u-pick flower experience was absolutely magical and I had so much fun strolling up and down the rows, clippers in hand, curating ingredients for my upcoming FLOWER content. That weekend, I foraged our country property for wild additions as the fall colours were just starting to trickle in to the landscape — and I came home with a bucket full of wild grasses, berries and early autumn foliage to play with. I also spent the weekend painting some new custom backdrops in a palette inspired by the Pantone Autumn/Winter 2020/2021 Colour Trend Report, which you’ll see in my content moving forward — starting with October 2020’s Digital Blooms!

I hope you’re not sick of Sunflowers just yet — because this month’s DIGITAL BLOOMS features both yellow and brown centred varieties, complimented by Yellow Zinnias, Sulfur Cosmos, Goldenrod, Starry False Lily of the Valley, Rosehips and Crested Wheatgrass whimsically arranged on an Pantone inspired Rose Tan background. Each component of October’s free tech floral wallpaper is currently growing right here in Alberta, capturing the fleeting beauty of late summer blooms as we transition into early autumn’s berry season. Embrace this seasonal shift on the background of your desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone by simply clicking through to download October 2020’s Digital Blooms — absolutely free! Here’s to enjoying the beauty of this season digitally, as well.

A GUIDE TO BOWDEN SUNMAZE & EAGLE CREEK FARMS


Friends, I’m back today with an impromptu (but lovely!) post about our recent trip to Bowden SunMaze & Eagle Creek Farms! Whether you’ve followed along for just a couple of weeks or a couple of years, you’ll know how much I adore sunflowers. From bringing them into our home, to incorporating them into my FLOWER content, to road-tripping to see fields of these sunny blooms, sunflowers have graced the pages of JustineCelina many times! We actually made our first trip to Bowden SunMaze a couple of years ago, but it ended up being a stormy night and we didn’t have as much time there as we’d hoped for. We knew we wanted to visit again to properly take in their beauty and explore the farm — and were thrilled to have the opportunity to do so last Friday evening! My Mom, little sister and I headed north to visit Eagle Creek Farms for an unconventional girls night, to catch a glimpse of their renowned sunflower fields at sunset — and it was an absolutely beautiful evening. I was also delighted to find their U-Pick Flower Fields were in full bloom, where I handpicked an autumn-inspired bouquet, which I used to create upcoming DIGITAL BLOOMS (which are now live!).

If you’ve always wanted to visit a Sunflower Field but aren’t sure what to expect, this post is for you! As we explore the boundaries of travel within our own province this year, I’m thrilled to bring you along on our trip to Bowden Sunmaze & Eagle Creek Farms as I detail everything you’ve ever wanted to know about visiting a sunflower field and flower u-pick — from location, to cost, to safety restrictions, to activities, to the best times to visit, to my best sunflower field photography tips! Craving a little adventure as we transition into autumn and want to see these stunning Alberta Sunflower Fields for yourself? There’s no time like the present — they’re currently in full bloom and Bowden SunMaze is offering the final tickets of the season until September 30th, 2020. If you’re looking for a family-friendly outdoor activity, or are simply yearning for a cheerful digital escape, join us as we visit Alberta’s Bowden SunMaze on a gorgeous mid-September evening!

Happy September 1st, flower lovers! This transitional month where summer meets autumn is my absolute favourite of the year — and I’m thrilled to usher in a brand new season with September 2020’s Free Floral Wallpaper. But would it really be September without sunflowers?! I can’t resist bringing sunflowers into our home to savour the final weeks of summer  — they bring such a happy energy to any room! And now, you can bring that same cheerful, sunny and uplifting energy to the background of your computer, tablet or phone with September 2020’s Digital Blooms — featuring Sunflowers, white Garden Cosmos, Golden Tickseed, Pampas Grass and Whiskey Grass set against a sage green (my latest COLOUR CRUSH — new post coming soon!) background.

AUGUST 2O2O SOUNDTRACK


As the final full month of summer comes to a close, I’m thrilled to bring you another MONTHLY SOUNTRACK! My August 2020 Soundtrack features a mash up of 60 tracks spanning genres from ultra chill instrumental to explicit hip-hop — an eclectic melange of tunes that have been pumping through my speakers all month long. I’ve been spending my days making the most of all this beautiful season has to offer while working away on lots of exciting projects and upcoming content (including a seasonally inspired SPACE REFRESH, which you can catch a glimpse of in this month’s album cover!) that I can’t wait to share with you as we transition into autumn. This nearly 4 hours playlist has been integral in keeping my ears (and mind) entertained and inspired this month as I putter away on various creative pursuits and enjoy the great outdoors!

There are so many wonderful artists and tracks to discover in my August 2020 Soundtrack — but a handful of my personal favourites include Croosh’s Prosecco, Colouring’s Ember, Work Drugs Never Say Die, Jacques Green’s remix of Two Hearts, Yoke Lore’s Fade Away, MGK & Blackbear’s my ex’s best friends, Cam Stacey’s remix of Free (my most played track of the month!), Teen Daze’s Open, Run The Jewels’ JU$T, Phoebe Bridger’s Garden Song, Lastling’s Verona, Alex Lustig’s Free Spirit, Petit Biscuit’s You, Nieve & Soul Chief’s Write This Down, ScHoolboyQ’s Crash, LYREE’s Collins Ave and BRONSON & ODEZA’s  CALL OUT. Happy listening, music lovers!

DIGITAL BLOOMS SEPTEMBER 2019 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPER


With the promise of changing leaves dancing on the late-summer breeze, I’m back with a fresh instalment of DIGITAL BLOOMS to welcome my favourite month of the year! I love September because it combines the best of summer and autumn — and I’ve channeled that transitional inspiration into this month’s free tech wallpaper. Last weekend we popped over to a local farmer’s market where some incredibly lovely bouquets of sunflowers were on display and I couldn’t resist picking one up to share with all of you! The best part? Everything featured in September 2019’s Digital Blooms is organic, biodynamic, growing here in Alberta right now! I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate the season.

September’s DIGITAL BLOOMS are heavily inspired by the Pantone Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Fashion Colour Trend Report featuring warm, transitional hues of Chili Pepper, Biking Red, Rocky Road, Sugar Almond and Dark Cheddar set on a moody Bluestone backdrop. Unique Chianti and Little Becka Sunflowers are complimented by RudbeckiaStrawflower, wild Firewheels and Barberry leaves in free desktop wallpaper that’s equal parts sunny and dramatic — just like the first month of autumn. Give your devices a seasonal makeover by clicking through to download September’s free floral tech wallpaper!

AUTUMN 2018 LOOKBOOK


Fellow fashionistas, this one’s for you! My Autumn 2018 Lookbook has been months in the making and a concept I’ve wanted to produce for about a year here at JustineCelina — but I could simply never find the time with my previous publishing schedule. While I did take a break from posting during my Intermission due to computer issues, thankfully my camera wasn’t affected — and neither was my love of autumnal fashion. In fact, I’ve mentioned many times here over the years that fall is my absolute favourite time of year to get dressed (we started shooting autumn style content in August!). Well, this year I’ve compiled a massive 12 outfit LOOKBOOK featuring everything I’ve been wearing over the past couple of months in both personal and professional settings, sprinkled with an overview of seasonal trends, styling tips and of course, tons of shoppable links!

While this post is getting to you about a month later than I originally intended due the loss of my previous laptop and 4 months of edited, beautifully catalogued style content (that one still stings!), I really wanted to take the time to execute it true to my original vision. Moving forward (dependent on your feedback, of course!), I’d like to publish a Lookbook at the onset of each new season featuring multi-outfit style inspiration — and then break each look out into a subsequent, more detailed oriented post as well as incorporate them into some of my pre-existing series — TREND GUIDES, HOW TO STYLE and PATTERN PLAY (I’m also kicking off a new WORK WEAR series in 2019 — more on that in this post!). That way, you get an overview of everything I’m wearing and loving for the new season at a glance in the Lookbook and can come back for more inspiration or information if you’d like to learn more about one of the looks, prints or pieces. While this post took a considerable of research, organization and coordination to create, I’m extremely pleased with how my first seasonal Lookbook came together — and I hope you enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed creating it! Due to the timing of publication, many of the items featured in the post are currently on sale for Black Friday / Cyber Monday, which I’ve also made note of (because you know I love a great deal!). Alright, enough housekeeping — let’s get to the FASHION, shall we?!
