peek inside brika’s new holiday pop-up in toronto

If you’ve ever browsed the well-crafted goods featured on BRIKA (a curated version of Etsy), chances are the Toronto-based online retailer has since become a favourite shopping destination. Now, to make the holidays a little brighter, the founders have set up a 3,000-square-foot pop-up shop at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre.

holiday celebration in style

How is your holiday decoration coming along? Party invites are flying in and my own party will take place in 2 short weeks!  Needless to say, I am super excited to host our first Christmas party at Chris’ condo (you will see this fantastic home soon!) but it is also very difficult to decide on a color scheme especially when he likes the festive traditions in red and I must rather prefer a soothing palette in blue.

If you are also in a similar dilemma, then you have come to the right place today as I tour this beautifully decorated home in three distinct color palettes, proving you too can have it all!

How pretty is this Strawberries wallpaper in Blush designed by Emily Isabella for Hygge & West? What a sweet touch for a kitchen, dining area or kid’s room.


simple baked apple roses with your kids

Temperatures have dropped so much over these past two weekends. Fall is officially here! Since the weather is getting colder, I’ve started planning more indoor activities for my two-and-a-half-year-old son.


Recently, he’s been watching YouTube videos on how to make birthday cakes out of Play-Doh. That’s when the idea came to me: why don’t I recreate the process for him using real ingredients, and teach him how to bake!

decor inspiration: quilts as wall art

I love the idea of hanging a beautiful handmade quilt as wall art, and I’ve been thinking of this idea to cover an empty wall in my dining area for a while. (It’s like the woven wall hanging trend on a larger scale.) Quilts have a gorgeous artisanal quality and can be neutral or colourful, geometric or abstract. Read on to find a few of my favourite designs.

lumas art gallery now open in toronto

LUMAS, a Berlin-born photography gallery, has opened its second set of Canadian doors in Toronto’s well known Yorkville area. After opening in Vancouver back in February of this year (to an overwhelmingly positive response), the Toronto location was an obvious next step. As a gallery that offers a variety of contemporary art at an accessible price, LUMAS is exactly what was needed to bring a fresh clientele to the established Yorkville hood. Any art lovers on the hunt for their next great piece should definitely check out LUMAS’ new pad. Read on to take a peak inside their showroom.

places to go, people to see: kedd life style fair

For the design inclined, strolling through Toronto’s King East Design District (KEDD) always seems like a good idea. A bright blue modular chair proudly displayed in a window can steal our hearts one minute, a frilly grey toss cushion the next. Tomorrow, the neighbourhood will become even more colourful.

On Saturday, September 26th the district will flaunt its creative side during the KEDD Life Style Fair. Now into its second year, the fete is considered to be Toronto’s largest public festival celebrating modern design. From 10am to 5pm, King Street East will be outfitted with vibrant installations curated by local artists and designers.

Here’s a sneak peek of three installations you can expect to find on Saturday:

sumptuous design aboard uniworld’s ss catherine

uniworld-ship If there are two things I love, it’s travel and design. I recently experienced the most perfect blend of both on a river cruise when I sailed on Uniworld’s SS Catherine (christened by Catherine Deneuve) this past summer, traveling for eight days from Avignon to Lyon. River cruising is quickly becoming one of the hottest trends in travel, attracting an increasingly more diverse group of travelers. And when I stepped aboard the SS Catherine, I knew I was in for a treat! Unlike other river cruise companies whose ships are typically identical one to the next, Uniworld’s focus on unique decor and design on each ship is obvious. Want to take a virtual tour of this spectacular ship? Let’s go!
