Canada Welcomes CB2!

January 20, 2012

Crate and Barrel’s modern, affordable sister CB2 is opening its door in Toronto this weekend, replacing the purple monster Big Bop and ending its long reign over the Bathurst and Queen corner. IKEA should be worried – a peek at CB2’s website confirms their pretty stuff could rival IKEA’s stronghold on Toronto’s student market. And it’s much, much closer!

Of course, I couldn’t be happier. We’re moving (finally!) to the area next week and I could use a few things…

A. Type 39″ Clock, $199; B. Roundabout rug, starting at $349; C. Liquid round yellow bowl, $54.95; D. Signal floor lamp, $329; E. Cage fuel pendant lamp, $169; F. Naxos dinnerware, starting at $4.95; G. 3-prong red coat rack, $79.95; H. Posh barware, starting at $3.50; I. Knitted graphite pouf; $99.95; J. Contact stool, $149; K. Tux coffee table; $349.


Keri Russell’s Gorgeous Brownstone.

May 9, 2011

I’ve envied Keri Russell’s fabulous hair since her Felicity days but it’s her gorgeous Brooklyn brownstone that I covet now. Elle Decor‘s June issue features Keri and her contractor husband Shane Deary’s 1860 remodeled home – A collaboration project for the new parents.

BHLDN Decor.

May 8, 2011

I love the whimsical look of Anthropologie’s wedding chapter BHLDN. They’ve just recently added a new decor section filled with pretty adornments and keepsakes. Be sure to check out their full tabletop collection – I especially fancy the knotty pine treat pedestal!

Lovely Book Party.

April 6, 2011

I’m loving the idea of a book party like Martha Stewart’s book baby shower. I especially fancy Anna Bond’s shower invitation and the yummy desserts -That layer cake looks delicious!

Living Room Envy.

December 9, 2010

Have you peeked at the latest issue of Lonny Mag yet? I’m loving designer Lulu de Kwiatkowski’s home. I haven’t settled into a new place since I’ve returned from London so I’m on the lookout for room inspiration… and er, the perfect apartment!

Smells A Lot Like… Christmas.

November 28, 2010

Toronto saw its first snow fall this weekend -And true to form, it turned into slush almost immediately! Nonetheless, it spurred my need to decorate the apartment and listen to my favorite holiday tunes. This week I  reserved my Christmas tree from the St. Lawrence Market, and now I’m on the hunt for pretty ornaments. I love the animal ones from Anthropologie below, and I saw a few others at the Drake General Store this morning.

Nesting Newbies, Winter 2010.

March 3, 2010

Launching its 2nd issue, Nesting Newbies is seeking its place amongst entertainers and foodies. Created by Chef Lea McIntosh and Jodi Murphy, the quarterly e-magazine also features online cooking segments aimed at the new to nesting! I love its instructional guides and cross digital platform… Welcome to the new world of Magazines!

Bathroom Inspiration Board.

March 3, 2010

The bf and I are currently living amongst boxes (and might be doing so for another few weeks!) But there are a few rooms I’m in a rush to decorate, and the bathroom is certainly at the top of that list. Before our move, I painted the room a nice shade of Iceberg with Benjamin Moore’s Bath and Spa paint. Our vanity is walnut with a large white sink but lacks the storage space to accommodate my beauty supplies- To fix, I’m purchasing a shelving unit from IKEA in the same walnut shade. I’ll post up after pics of the bathroom soon!
