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.

Boudoir Tour: Chantale Renee’s Sanctuary.

December 8, 2009

My bestie moved to a new place recently- the perfect excuse to re-organize and decorate her bedroom. I wish you could see the before pictures, this room was disgusting (I even helped paint!) Chantale has collected many trinkets and pretty things over the years, so this room is the perfect reflection of her character.

This also happens to be where I spend a lot of my time.

My lady friend Chantale Renée caught a glimpse of a lit up Toronto jem.

Le Petit Déjeuner.

February 8, 2009

Today was the perfect Sunday to roam the city streets. First, breakfast at Le Petit Déjeuner, a charming breakfast joint in the St. Lawrence market. The bf is moving to the area in a few weeks, and I couldn’t be more excited. After brunch we found the prettiest vintage photographs of Toronto at the antique market, and perused the notable Nicholas Hoare book store.

Interior Design Show, Toronto edition.

February 8, 2009

I spent the better half of Saturday at the 2009 Interior Design Show, erratically browsing the hundred plus exhibits. The show wasn’t nearly as big as I’d expected, and most items were beyond my slim furniture budget, but I did find many interesting and beautifully designed spaces.
