Crazy crooked bookshelf, by Malagana


The perfect compact bar!  It slides open to reveal one third of the storage real estate to upright bottles, one third to glass wear, and  the remaining third houses the other essentials-  napkins, coasters, and bar tools of course. Mini Bar by Urban Case


The Bulldozer Chair by Mark Goetz and Efe Buluc


A lovely light fixture


LuvZ these little stools, would you believe they strengthen your core muscles too?  By Zorine Design


The artistic imitation of wood by Faux Bois


Put that rain cloud that is following you behind, literally on the shelf. By Abovo Light for Life


Lladro’s new Atelier Collection, STUNNING!


Innovative Home Furnishing by Data


My fave, is this bookshelf that you can adjust as you grow your collection

Light Love

LuvZ | this cone lamp by Tom Dixon.   Inspired by photography lighting, the lamp diffuses a halogen bulb in such a way that it emulates daylight- which is always welcome in my home.  Order your very own cone lamp at Klaus.


Beauty and the Beast

When I saw this Alexander McQueen rug at Avenue Rd. I was strangely attracted to its untamed charm.  Then I thought what on earth would I pair it with?  Here are a couple of ideas of how you too, can introduce the beast into your home.  You might subtly add one of these pieces…or boldly add all three. LuvZ | this Edwardian milk glass pendant and it’s wild brass crown from 1stDibs, as well as this Louis the XIV style porcelain centre piece from Up To You.

IDS b.

In case you missed the IDS this weekend, or just couldn’t bare to stand in a line-up one hundred people deep to have look at the Sibling Revelry booths…I snuck in early on Sunday morning to get some shots of the spaces with no one in them, the differences are astounding.

Unfortunately my pictures form the Dressler Brothers house didn’t translate so well… but I still LuvZ them, and their sustainable wood furniture.

LuvZ | the Richardson’s space, and how they elevated the three primary colours.

LuvZ | the Dixon’s space, it was OTT in a good way…wonder how long it took them to fold all of those paper cranes?

The Ta Trung’s surprised me with their SR booth, it was more about innovation than displaying their typical style.

Lamp Mecca

Decorum Decorative Finds truly lives up to its name.  Decorum is a no fail, when you are in search of something amazing that will really set off a room.  However, over the last couple of years they have really stepped it up in the lighting department.  It is seriously downtown Toronto’s new lamp Mecca.
