the perfect salad dressing helper

Along with recently jumping on the smoothie train, I have also discovered that I’m digging lemon based vinaigrette‘s – especially on kale salads! The acidity helps break down the toughness of the leaves, making the whole salad taste that much better. The lemon seeds and pulp, however, are driving me a bit crazy.

In my Christmas stocking this year, though, I got this mini citrus juicer and salad making has become so much more enjoyable. Love this little kitchen tool. It’s easy to store and easy to wash. Read on to learn more.

places to go, people to see: art shoppe

Time flies. Art Shoppe has been a staple in Toronto’s design landscape for 78 years. Steeped in history, the family owned business has a long list of clients, including the Toronto international airport and the Toronto telegram building. Good news, bad news: The historic Yonge and Eglinton location shut it’s doors a few months ago (not surprisingly, the site already has a condo project in the works). But the great news is that it’s found an arguably better home in the Castlefield design district and is settling in quite well. The new showroom retains the signature Canadian-made and European-imported Art Deco-inspired collection that its customers know and love. Situated among other great design shops, the new location makes for a great day trip destination – the in-store cafe, set to open in the spring, will be a great spot to lunch among stylish furnishings. Here are some snapshots of the iconic landmark address over the last seven or so decades.

editor’s pick: ace & jig for anthropologie

Anthropologie just launched a home goods collection with Brooklyn-based Ace & Jig by designers Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson (I posted its table runner in last Friday’s Decor vs. Fashion post), one of my favourite clothing brands. It’s easy to live in its comfortable printed dresses. Although the pieces are a bit of a splurge, they’re the clothes that you’ll reach for when you’d like to feel both comfortable and pretty. I imagine that the home goods collection will have the same effect in your rooms.

So if you’re like me and would rather dream of sunshine than surrender to the cold, slip on your sunnies and take a peek at these super stunning products by Senay Studio:

decor vs. fashion: ace & jig table runner or scarf?

I’m in love with Brooklyn-based clothing brand Ace & Jig. Everything its designers (Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson) produce is just so beautiful. Even better, the duo designs their own textiles, which are loom-woven and hand-dyed in India, and boast pretty bohemian patterns and rich, exotic colours. Needless to say, I’m thrilled that Anthropologie now carries a collection of home goods from Ace & Jig, including a toss cushion, quilt and the loveliest table runners.

For this week’s Decor vs. Fashion, which would you choose: An Ace & Jig table runner or scarf?
