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.

kate spade saturday + west elm are a match made in heaven

Like peanut butter and chocolate, some things are just meant to go together. So when two of my favourite brands, West Elm and Kate Spade Saturday, announced their new partnership, I went a little weak in the knees. Talk about a match made in heaven. Kate Spade Saturday is bringing a dose of chill weekend whimsy to West Elm’s contemporary furniture collection. The new line features furniture, bedding, rugs and accessories, all in Kate Spade’s signature look – bold, bright hues and playful patterns.

Here are a few of the items in the collection that caught my eye:

editor’s pick: lindsay stead quilts

Lindsay Stead creates incredible heirloom-quality quilts and toss cushions in her Toronto studio.

From Lindsay: “In this era of making objects as quickly as possible, I take great pride in using traditional techniques to make my quilts. Each quilt is entirely hand quilted, which although being a very time consuming process, creates a very personal connection for me to my work.” I’d like to hang one of these graphic quilts on a wall.

Check out Lindsay’s beautiful work at Toronto’s One of a Kind Show until December 7, or on her website.

goodge place: a new vancouver design store worth visiting

Listen up, design enthusiasts: A home decor shop is opening its doors tomorrow in Vancouver’s South Granville district, and it’s no ordinary store. The boutique, called Goodge Place, is named after a charming street in London, England. That said, it should come as no surprise that most of the merchandise is sourced from there too.

take a look inside reese witherspoon’s $14 million dollar home

If you loved getting a glimpse inside Sarah Jessica Parker’s New York brownstone, then you won’t be disappointed by Academy Award winner, Reese Witherspoon’s Spanish-style estate in Los Angeles. As part of Vogue.com’s 73 Questions web series, Reese answers rapid-fire questions while showing off her beautifully decorated 6,956-square-foot Brentwood home. From the moment she opens the large wrought iron front door, you know it’s going to be good.

It’s Southern-charm-meets-California-chic and it’s exactly where we would have pictured Reese to call home. Which is why we were surprised to hear…

nesting with nest

My first floor renovation is finally coming to an end. One of the most exciting things to happen was the installation of the Nest thermostat. First off it is a thing of beauty – round, black, and shiny – it almost looks like jewelry on my wall. Secondly it is smart and can program itself and finally, my favourite feature, is that I can adjust it wirelessly from my iPhone or tablet. So I can be lying in bed and not have to run downstairs to turn the temperature up or down. I know I’m lazy, but to me this is a luxury.

who knew this is how sarah jessica parker lives

It’s official. Our Style at Home web team is obsessed with Vogue.com’s 73 Question web series. Sure, we love learning more about our favourite celebs, but we would be lying if we said we weren’t in it for the home decor.

Although we love us some Sarah Jessica Parker (who doesn’t?), we couldn’t help but spend the Sex and the City star’s Vogue.com interview focused on her home decor. If you’re picturing SJP’s New York City brownstone to have a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque style, think again! We didn’t get a glimpse inside any closets, but what we did see is one very eclectic and colourful home. Decorated with books, artwork and one-of-a-kind accessories (including a collection of globes), this space might surprise you.
