The four season mantle

As the nights get colder, we tend to spend more time in our living room enjoying the fire.  While of course the fire is beautiful to watch, I love seeing our holiday mantle sparkle above.  I opted for a simple fresh cedar mantle this year with candles and simple gold accents, including nutcrackers I spray painted. Christmas mantle season is definitely my favourite ‘mantle’ season of the year.

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.

places to go, people to see: ago holiday trunk shows

It’s time to face the jingle: Christmas is fast approaching. I’m always the last in the office to get in the festive spirit, too busy mourning the passing of fall, but if you’re an early shopper looking for unique presents, hit up the gift shop at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) next week. Starting on Tuesday, November 18 and running through Friday the 21st, the shop will play host to a variety of trunk shows. On Tuesday, Israel-based Oshra Tishbi will present its wide range of wine-and-fruit preserves (think: passionfruit-champagne and fig-cabernet) – an ideal pairing to cheese and a great hostess gift. Wednesday’s highlight is Carole Tanenbaum’s dazzling collection of vintage-inspired costume jewellery. The fashionista on your list will thank you, whether you opt for a piece in the $100 range or a show-stopping $2,500 choker necklace. The sweet tooth in your life will gladly devour a token by JAB Chocolate, an artisanal small-batch chocolatier (on site on both Wednesday and Thursday), but your nationalistic buddy will be doubly pleased with a box of My Favourite Fudge. The Caledon, Ont.-based fudge maker has something for every taste, offering 60 flavours, including Canadian Shield and Algonquin Trail. These and other unique brands will strut their stuff, but even if you don’t make it to AGO’s store next week, here are five reasons you it should be on your holiday shopping itinerary – if it isn’t already.

new-use tuesdays: oranges

I don’t know about you, but I adore oranges. They’re so refreshing in summer, yet have enough substance to make a filling winter snack. And breakfast – who eats that meal without some OJ? So this week, I’m putting the new-use spotlight on the citrusy fruit. If you don’t have a fridge-full already, here are three out-of-the-box uses that might convince you to load up next time you’re at the grocery store.

wallpaper for a monsoon

Recently I made a trip to the designer showrooms in search of new wallpaper samples for a project I’m working on. While at Bilbrough I found a new collection by Chivasso called Monsoon. Tropically inspired, brightly coloured and looking like grasscloth it could perk up any room on a cold dark November day, but the great thing about this wallpaper it is vinyl – so it could really go anywhere.

Here are some shots of it:

fun etsy find

I was recently trolling photographer Paul Costello’s website and found these fun quotable banners/art prints from Jimmy Marble. I love the sayings and the way the typography is done. Christmas is coming and this is a great gift for the person who has everything or wants a little sass on their walls! My favourite has a profanity in it so I didn’t think it would be appropriate to show here, but check out his website!

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.

removable wallpaper for renters

I rent my Toronto apartment, so I’ve never considered putting up wallpaper. But these removable wallpaper tiles from Hygge & West are amazing – and WAY less of a commitment. Wouldn’t the wallpaper be lovely in a powder room or entryway wall?

colour of the year – benjamin moore

I recently went to a media event for Benjamin Moore‘s new colour line for 2015. Not only did they launch a collection of colours, but they also picked a colour of the year – no pressure there icon wink colour of the year   benjamin moore I’m not one to dabble in colour – grey to me is a colour, but I was throughly surprised with the new palette and actually thought that I might be able to incorporate colour into my own, yes my own house!! My favourite colour was the colour of the year – Gilford Green HC-116 – part of their historic collection. Here are some images of it incorporated into rooms.
