editor’s pick: eco etsy napkins

Everyone’s hopped up about Easter, but there’s another upcoming holiday to look forward to, Earth Day, which is on April 22. To some, April is known as Earth Month, and to honour it, I’m compiling my favourite eco-friendly offerings from the Etsy-sphere. The online marketplace seems a natural focal point as it is a certified B Corporation, meaning it’s met rigorous standards of environmental and social accountability. Today’s pick is Jaqs Studio, a textiles shop based out of Clayton, California. Hand sewn by owner Q, the eco merchandise includes quilts, placemats and toss cushions, in addition to a wide array of napkins. Check out the most swoon-worthy in the bunch.

home library: homemade cleaners

I’m far from an earth goddess, but I do worry about the chemicals I come in contact with – especially in my cleaning products. In the last decade, there’s been a clear shift toward greener horizons in the home-cleaning category. But, for the most part, the price points are still higher than conventional products and, in a world of deceptive ad lingo, I always wonder just how environmentally friendly the products are. Well, in their book Homemade Cleaners, authors Mandy O’Brien and Dionna Ford have got the answer: make your own cleaning products from recognizable ingredients, most of which are already in your kitchen cabinets.

debate: bathtubs with aprons or no aprons

I’m in the midst of debating my tub scenario – first off it has to fit into a 3-walled alcove situation. So the front portion of the tub is exposed. I have seen 2 ways of doing this – one where you finish the front of the tub with either tile, wood or stone. The other way is to do one with a built-in apron. What are peoples thoughts on this? Here are images of both:

gwyneth knows her kitchens

Clearly our girl Gwyneth knows her way around a kitchen having written 2 cookbooks: My Father’s Daughter and It’s All Good. But what is also clear to me is she has great taste in kitchens. This kitchen was designed by Windsor Smith – one of my favourite designers. I’m not sure if she designed it with Gwyneth in mind, but either way I’d love to spend a lot of time here. We’ve featured Smith’s work before on our website. Do you think Gwyneth and Chris cooked amazing meals while listening to music together? I must admit I’m a little sad about their recent “un-coupling”, are you?
